Great to wheel and plenty of scenery. Did the trail in a 2wd forerunner nissan titan.

Fun way to get into arches. Did in landcruiser and lx570 with no lift. No problems.

Nice trail. A little blend of some tech with pretty mellow slickrock for beginners in group. Endless possibilities abound and well marked at every intersection

The loop is deceiving it’s well marked but incredibly easy to get lost. There a lot of wide open unmarked areas. We ended up in some area with a bunch of cows. Bring extra fuel and a charged phone. Other than that it was a blast.

Lots of fun! Some very technical spots.

Started down from the Salt Wash Trail and did the 1.8 mile trail from the Salt Wash Trail. enjoyed the rock climbing the beginning of the Trail. recommend modified vehicles only. the willow trail was fairly simple. the start of the Trail has no name but the rangers at the Arches park just call it the 4x4 trail.

This was a fun trail that took us 1.5 hours in our new stock 4runner. There is a good variety of scenery including a nice ledge climb at the start near 191, some sandy sections, flat rock sections and a short hike to the bridges. The last few miles is a gravel road on the plateau. The first part required a bit of spotting by my wife but she said we weren't close to scraping anything.

Dirt biking- Cool trail, just very easy. Couldn't figure out how to see the arches from below- which would have been awesome. You can't ride over the bridges anymore- but I was fine with that bc I don't think I would have wanted to (considering there is a plaque there for someone who past away "doing what they love").

We took a left before you go up the hill and went on another trail (difficult). It was technical riding! We rode till there was a MAJOR drop down (no way I could get up or down- nor my husband), then turned around. That part was fun!

This area is awesome! I love how there's a little bit of everything in this area! The boys mountain biked and my 6 year old daughter, dog, and I went hiking and exploring. There are maps everywhere and the trails are clearly marked. We camped in dispersed camping very close to the trail head. These were some fun times and we will definitely come back!

good hike, it's easy to get off of the main trail and accidentally take a spur though

I hiked this with my dog and wished I had a bike the whole time. Great system of trails on clearly marked. We ended up walking around for awhile and put 11 miles on, it was great but even better for bikes!

Easy off road travel. Quick walk from the road to the bridges. Don't be dumb and jump the gap between the bridges.

this was far the best trail I've been on for beginners in moab. not a lot of sand and there are some more moderate trails that break off the main trail that give you a since of accomplishment.

I guess we took the ATV road section by mountain bike to Gemini Bridges. I wasn't in love with it but my bf thought it was the best thing ever since on the way out there is a pretty long downhill. I wasn't a fan of the gravel but the gravelly section isn't that long.

We rented a Jeep Grand Cherokee while in Moab and decided to do a little
off-roading. This trail was fun, a little bumpy, but easy to manage. Get out and hike the short distance to Gemini Bridges there really cool.

Drove the Salt Valley Road on a quick trip through Arches on our way to Las Vegas. This is a beautiful valley, just be sure to stay on the road, the sand gets very deep an treacherous.

Don't turn onto the 4x4 roads unless your looking for some trouble. Most trails off this road are moderate to difficult so watch out! Tons of fun though!

Super great, easy drive to the bridge. I HIGHLY recommend driving down to the bottom and taking a stroll to the bottom side of the arch. It's a pretty rad opportunity to stand on the bridge then see it from the bottom! We went there in Dec 2014 and it was pretty chilly even though the skies were clear. I suggest a hat all year round as the sun is still bright when the sky is clear in the winter. Check in with the rangers before heading out to check which trails are open.

Took this road to the Tower Arch parking lot. It was a very washboard road that is ok for passenger cars if if hasn't rained recently. Check with the rangers before attempting if it has rained withing a couple of days. Just make sure you stay on the Salt Valley Road and don't get on the 4X4 roads that are clearly marked.

This trail is light and fun, the best part was getting to walk out onto the Gemini Bridges and take lots of cool pictures. Its awesome how it is a straight drop down from the bridges but not to worry its plenty wide to stand and walk across!

Drove to bottom of and hiked to the bottom of the Bridges. Views up are incredible. Also took the left fork in the trail and hiked up the wash just to see what was there. Worth it! Tadpoles and frogs galore in the water. :) Even if you're only going to the view the Bridges, TAKE WATER and WEAR A HAT! Duh!! Several of the folks who didn't were in pretty bad shape by the time they got back to their Jeeps. Saw some snakes so be VERY careful about climbing on the rocks at the bottom.

View from top not nearly as impressive and took almost an hour of driving to get there. Some bikers (who come out of nowhere!) but lots more "Jeepers."

Except for a couple of tough spots, this trail would be rated easy. The movie "Blue" was filmed here.
