To get to the trailhead from Moab drive south on Highway 191 measuring 7.8 miles from Center and Main. Turn left onto the Old Airport Road and follow the signs for the La Sal Mtn. Loop. Follow the La Sal Mtn. Loop for 12.3 miles and turn right at the OOWah Lake Camp Ground sign just before crossing Mill Creek. After turning onto Forest Road 0076, the Oowah Lake Road, reset your odometer and measure 1.04 miles to the Shuman Gulch trail sign. The sign sits below the level of the road on the north side and is not at all obvious unless you are looking right at it. There is a little room to park at the corner just past the sign but a better spot is 50 yards or so on up the road where there is a pull through on the south side of the road.

I’m giving the trail 4 stars - but was only in it for 1/2 mile. Met a cute baby bear about 600-800m in and decided not to meet mama bear. Hikers be aware respectful and safe!
