Start down the gravel road. At mile 3.8 take a right.. At mile 4 take another right. At mile 4.7
stay straight on the main road. At mile 5.8 you will see a sign that says Gemini bidges, go off the
road and follow lines and the signs to 2 breathtaking arches spread out across a canyon. Take a
break, have lunch, and look around. After lunch get back on the road and take a right. Ignore
all spurs.atmiles 7.5 and8.3, stay left.at mile 8.5 stay left. After a steep rocky descent at mile
9.1 tak a left. Stay on this road the rest of the way. at mile 10.8 a climb will start, and then you
will descend to the first trailhead that you saw, I hope you remembered to put a shuttle car
there.

Review: If you're doing the whole thing, shuttle this ride. It definitely has its moments of fun downhill riding, even a couple of slickrock spots--Gemini bridges itself is a cool scenic area, but overall there are probably better rides around Moab. I remember a long seemingly arduous uphill section right at the end. That stuff is supposed to be at the beginning! (maybe it was just the route I went, it seems there are various ways to ride this section of Moab)

Review: The views are great on this road, there's one decent descent, but the rest of it was pretty horrible: tons of jeep and motorcycle traffic (including almost getting run over a couple of times), deep sand, steep climbs... I only recommend this as a connector to some good singletrack.

Review: I did not shuttle this making it a farily tough climb to the top. Scenic but sandy in spots. Been 8 years since I rode it.

Review: Did this ride as a shuttle. Drop off at the top, ride down and take a jeep road up to an overlook and to the Outerbike Bar M site. Took about 2.5 hours. Just technical enough to keep it fun. It was a blast, very little dabs and a couple of dismounts for me. Albeit the first time down on a demo bike.

Review: I agree that this is best done as a shuttle, unless of course you are out for a long climb to get in the cardio...it can be done but it is a long climb on exposed Jeep rode. The view from the bridges it great...and I think this would be a great trail for an intermediate rider getting into downhill riding. There are some very steep drop offs (read: fatal), so tread lightly in some spots and don't ride this at night.

Review: This was a great ride. I would recommend it to everyone that visits Moab. It's a Jeep road trail. You ride down about 10 miles, pedal about 2, then down another 2. A shuttle car would be helpful otherwise your at the mercy of a 12 mile ride up the mountain or a $40 shuttle ride. My friend & I went for the shuttle. Which I felt was well worth it. Porcupine Shuttle is who we went with since we heard he was the least expensive & the only person that would answer the phone. Super nice guy that had great advice for area trail riding.

Review: We started at the very top and used this to connect to Gold Bar Rim and Portal. Nice smooth beginning to a rough finish.

Review: This is a great beginer trail, it was my first ride in Moab. At the arches there is a sign in memorial to an idiot who tired to drive his jeep across the arches, crashed, and then died. Don't end up like him, walk, don't ride over the arches.
