Gemini Bridges is a favorite of many two-wheeled Moab pilgrims because—despite the fact that it’s largely off-road—it lacks the tough technicality of many area trails. If you’re addicted to the technical, you may find Gemini Bridges a bit ho-hum; contrarily, if you’re intimidated by the very mention of names like Slickrock, Porcupine Rim, and Poison Spider Mesa, you’ll probably like it a lot. The off-pavement part of the route swoops down along the ridge separating the South Fork Sevenmile and Bull Canyons. On high you can look out over infinite stretches of desert bedrock sediments, interrupted only by the occasional “intrusive igneous” range of mountains, such as the isolated Henrys to the west and, to the east, the ever present La Sals. Six miles after hitting pay dirt you’ll arrive at the Gemini Bridges, a pair of impressive, side-by-side natural bridges. General location: 10 miles north of Moab.

This is a nice easy point to point ride on jeep trails mostly downhill. You can basically fly down the road from the start to the turnoff to Gemini Bridge. Going to the bridge there are a few ledges to hop off & up coming back. Ride has some nice views & is one of the areas where I've seen desert bighorn sheep. This time we had very little traffic either jeeps or other bikers but this trail is very popular.
