Gemini Bridges Trail

Gemini Bridges is one of Moab's most well known mountain biking trails, offering its visitors beautiful views of the Moab Valley and the La Sal Mountains, interesting rock features, and two rock bridge crossings, the exposure on which is more obvious once you've crossed them. Gemini Bridges Trail is an easy 4x4 route as well and you'll only need 4WD in one section.

Typically ridden as a one way ride, Gemini Bridges is a relatively easy mountain biking trail because it is mostly a descent along a dirt road and some jeep trail. This road is often frequented by 4x4s and ATVs as an easy off roading option.
