Why are there multiple departure locations for certain trails?Flash
Hazard County Shuttle is the only shuttle company in Moab that operates in a true shuttle fashion from point to point trails. Translation, we pick you up (pre- ride) from the bottom of the trail and shuttle you to the top, eliminating the 6-12 mile(road) pedal back to town. Your vehicle awaits you at the end of the ride.
Why would I choose to be picked up in town VS. the trailhead?Flash
We offer in-town pickups at Rim Cyclery bike shop for those of you who do not have the ability to transport your bike to the trailheads.
This is a great option if you are:
- Renting a bike and do not have a vehicle or bike rack.
- Sharing your vehicle with your significant other or family member.
- Your rig is already set up and you do not want to move it.
- Some folks prefer to log in extra miles by pedaling back into town.
What is the average time to self shuttle with two vehicles?Flash
The average two-car shuttle roughly takes 2-3 hours; 50 miles of wear and tear on your vehicles and the cost of gas. The road to the top is extremely rough and rowdy.
How long is the shuttle to the lower section of the Whole Enchilada?Flash
Depending on traffic and road conditions, the drive is roughly 45 minutes to 1 hour from the bottom of Porcupine Rim parking lot to the top of the LPS (Lower Porcupine Rim) trailhead.
The drive consists of 10 miles on asphalt and 12 miles on Sand Flats road which is a rough dirt road. The last 4 miles from the water tanks to the cattle guard are quite rowdy.
You can expect a bumpy ride as the road is littered with rocks, dips, uneven ground, and washboards. Riding with Hazard County Shuttle not only saves you time and money, but wear and tear on your vehicle and most importantly "your relationship" should you ask your significant other to shuttle you.
When riding Mag-7, how do I decide if I want to exit Gemini Bridges Road, Portal, or Poison Spider Mesa trail?Flash
If you want to maintain a more intermediate/advanced ride, exit Gemini Bridges Road and park your vehicle at the Bar M/ Moab Brands area.
Exiting the Poison Spider Mesa trail, will allow you to climb up the Goldbar singletrack and ride the double black diamond Gold Bar Rim trail bypassing the infamous expert level Portal Trail.
If you are an expert rider, you have the option of exiting/ending along the Portal trail, consisting of extreme exposure on the top portion of the trail and large chunky tech moves on the bottom half. It is highly recommended, WHEN IN DOUBT, WALK IT OUT! Live to ride another day.
