Bull Canyon will take you to the bottom of Gemini Bridges. You go up a very rocky creek bottom, and a short hike takes you to the bridges.
Bull Canyon is located off the Gemini Bridges Trail just outside Moab. Along with my sons Ron and Bob, we Jeeped this trail after viewing the Gemini Bridges. When we were on top of the Geminis, we decided to travel down Bull Canyon to get a look at the Geminis from below. Wrong! After about 2 miles down canyon, we got a flat tire, the side wall had given out. After changing the tire, we turned around to get back to Moab. We traveled about another mile or so when disaster hit, 2 more tires gave out! We were forced to hike out in 95 degree heat in the middle of the day back 10 miles to the highway, hitch-hike our way 14 miles back to town. Then we rented a Jeep Wrangler, went back to retrieve the flats, returned to Moab to buy new tires, And again returned to the disabled Jeep Cherokee rental and after putting on the new tires, returned to Moab with both Jeeps. Lesson learned, do not use 'street tires' when you off road! What a day, a "day that will forever live in Infamy", but what memories....
