Directions

It takes about 35 minutes to drive to the ranch from downtown Moab. Drive north out of Moab on Hwy. 191 to the Colorado River and turn right onto Highway 128 (the River Road) and drive on it until you reach Mile Marker 21. This is the same intersection for Fisher Towers, but turn left or west toward the river, not east to Fisher Towers. Once on this dirt road, drive for 1/2 mile until the road divides. Bear right, through an open green gate. You are now on the Hauer Ranch and you will see several buildings. When the road divides next, take another right, and drive up to the barns. Park by the horse trailers.

The Hauer Ranch may not be easily recognized by internet map websites

Smart phone mapping systems are not reliable in the desert region around Moab. Please review our written directions. If you must use an address, use Hwy. 128, Mile Marker 21. This will get you to within 1 mile of the ranch, where the gravel driveway turns toward the Colorado River from Highway 128. This is the same intersection for Fisher Towers, which is on the opposite side of the highway. The ranch is located on the river side of the highway, and shares a driveway with the Lower Onion Creek Campground. After leaving the highway, heading toward the river, the gravel driveway divides. Hauer Ranch guests will take a right-hand turn to the Hauer Ranch. Follow the small white signs into the ranch and up to the horse barns.

This is remote desert and there are no billboards to mark the way. Review the map on this web site. Cell phones do not work well in the Colorado River Corridor, so if you get off track you may not be able to call out.

Arriving by road bicycle or road motorcycle?

The last mile of road leading to the ranch is on a hard packed dirt that at times may be difficult for road bicycles and road motorcycles but is otherwise fine for all vehicles (unless there have been recent flash floods).

Guests

If you have come to the Hauer Ranch for a trail ride, drive to the barns and park by the horses trailers. If you are here to stay in the guest house, drive to the guest house and make yourself at home. Do not drive up to the other residences on the ranch; they are not offices.
