    Driving directions to Hazard County TH

    Trying to figure out the best way to get from Moab to the trailhead for Hazard County. Been looking at topos and google maps but can't seem to figure out the last bit.

    I assume it is possible to drive right to it or near it since shuttles go there. Can I get some help with directions? I have the directions off utahmountainbiking.com to Burro Pass. Do I go the same way? Hard to tell on the topos. Ideally I want to go to Burro Pass but I heard it is closed...either the road to it or the trail (not sure).

    Thanks for any help

    EASIEST way is to show up at poison spider bikes for the 7:30 9:30 or 11:30 shuttle departure. $20 is cheap. I takes about 45mins to get to Hazard TH. If you wish to dive it yourself afterward you'll know the route from the shuttle!

    Point B is the road to the trailhead, you have to go another 5 miles up it to the beginning of Hazard. I'd just pay the shuttle guy $20 and be done with it.

    I second taking the shuttle. The drive back up to get your rig is gonna take two of you out of the post ride festivities and carb. reloading..... for about 1 1/2 hours..... well worth the $ if you ask me.

    Nice! How rough is that road. I will probably end up taking the shuttle in an effort to stimulate the local economy but I can get a ride up from somebody who isn't biking so would rather save the $60 (3 of us going) and stimulate a more local economy (my own).

    The road up from point "B" on that map is a nicely graded dirt road. The shuttles don't need 4WD or anything like that. (15 passenger vans w/roof racks) I haven't been up there this year, but most vehicles should be fine getting right to the trailhead parking lot, which is very well established.
