****   Add a review
#77 of 692 mountain bike trails in Utah
#2,017 in the world

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.

Getting there
From Center and Main in Moab, drive 10.2 miles north on highway 191. Look for a gravel parking area on the left signed Gemini bridges. This is the place to leave a shuttle car if you have one, otherwise, you will have a good long climb to get back to your car. For the main trail head continue 1.2 miles and turn lef onto Utan 313. Dirve 12.8 miles on Utah 313 and after a pump station on the left, look for a gravel road on the left near the top of a hill, this is the trailhead.

    Another good Moab trail with spectacular views. Bit rough getting out at the end but it has to be done once.

    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)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
