This was and amazing trail! The view was incredible, there were definitely some rough spots when we’re coming back where we had to use the wench! Gemini Bridges was off the hook with views! I saw Jeeps and even regular cars drive up there, as for the other trail that could only be done with non-stock vehicles!
