Considering that this is in the "Survival" forum, I'll assume that the scenario that you are describing would take place in a 'worst case',
'crap has hit the fan', 'every man for himself' situation.
In that case, you have several options:
1) Turn around. Someone planted it for a reason. That means there are possible hostile survivalists in the area and are attempting to a) prevent you
from accessing an area, or b) looking to disable your vehicle and loot your property.
2) Give it a wide berth and go around it.
3) If #2 isn't an option, and the device doesn't seem large (propane or acetylene tanks, etc) take cover and from a distance, attempt to detonate it
via rifle fire.
4) If #3 isn't feasible, take cover and attempt to detonate it with an improvised device of your own manufacture. A couple well made pipe bombs
should disable or detonate while allowing you to remain relatively well protected.
One thing that should be considered is that any attempt to detonate, or the actual detonation itself, will surely alert any hostiles in the area to
your presence. The single best bet is to locate an alternate route.
