One of the most popular biking and four-wheel-drive routes in Moab. The east side approach has dramatic views of the La Sal Mountains and Arches National Park. The Gemini Bridges are really two large arches, side by side, several hundred feet high. This is not immediately apparent because you approach them from the top looking down. Be careful walking around until you get your bearings. Don’t let children play by themselves in this area. The trail begins on a high, two-lane shelf road. Although easy, use extra caution when wet. Parts of the trail are rocky but suitable for stock high-clearance vehicles with skid plates. The last 0.2 miles before Gemini Bridges are the toughest. It is recommended that you walk this section. Because this trail is a heavily used biking route, it is well marked with painted white dashed lines; consequently, route-finding is fairly easy.

Great trail. Rode atvs. Starts long road until you get to the rocky climb. Not really that hard just bumpy with lose rocks. View from top is great but from the bottom up is even better! If on atv take a left before you get to the bridges. The trail leads all the way to the bottom that becomes a sandy atv trail. Great riding down there and didn't see anyone else on the bottom the whole trip. Make sure you take the camera
