Lavender and Moss Professional Review and Guide

"From the town of Mancos on US 160 (20 miles west of Durango) turn north on CO 184. After 0.3 miles, turn right on FSR 561 (AKA CO 42) at the sign for Transfer Campground and the Sharkstooth Trailhead. Reach Transfer Campground at the 10 mile point.

Stay on FSR 561 for 2 more miles, following the signs, until half a mile past the Aspen Ranger Station. Take a right turn onto FSR 350 (again, well signed). After 4 miles, the road forks again, the left fork being FSR 351 and the right fork FSR 350. Stay right. 2.5 miles further, the road forks again. Take the right fork, signed to the Sharkstooth Trailhead, which you will reach in 1.5 miles. This last mile and a half may be a little rough for some passenger cars."
