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!

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

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.

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.

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."

Drove this trail in 2011. This is a very busy trail. Watch for cyclists. Nice views at the top of the bluff just off US191.

An easy 4WD trail to the Gemini Bridges from Moab. We took the side road up Bull Canyon to the bottom of the Bridges and then back up to the top again. Actually, the view from the bottom is better than the usual view on top. Helped a pickup that had high-centered on a rock on the Bull Run trail. A couple of yanks with a tow strap and she was free.

Along with my sons Ron and Bob, we made this Jeep trip to the Gemini Bridges. Once there, we decided to see the Bridges from below on the Bull Canyon Trail. Bad Idea! We got 3 flats, the side walls on our "street tired" Jeep blew out. We were forced to hike 10 miles in 95 degree heat back to the main highway. Then hitchhike back to town. We rented a Jeep Cherokee and returned to our disabled Jeep, took off the rims and returned them to town for remounting with new tires...at great expence. We retraced our way back to the disabled Jeep and change the tires, then taking both Jeeps back to town. Lesson learned.."Do not use street tires when off road Jeeping"! Check any Jeep rental to insure proper tires are on the vehicle!
