This is like finding a hidden gem. There's a short walk to the bridges but well worth it. The trail is easy and you don't need a 4x4 to use it.

It really is a bit of a drive to get to them, and the gemini road can be pretty rough. It was wet when I went and definitely 4x4 territory. The thing is that you can walk ON the gemini bridges, but you can't really...More

Enjoyed this drive but there's a considerable hike to get to the top of the bridges. The bottom of the bridges are not accessible from this trail. An easy drive in most cars.

These bridges are only accessible by 4 wheel drive vehicle. The owner of our B&B, Desert Hills, offers off road tours. We went on the tour with him and this was one of the amazing places at which we stopped.

The road coming in to Gemini Bridges from the west (Highway 313) is much smoother than coming in from Highway 191. It you are concerned go in from Highway 313. Clearance is more of an issue going in from 191, you don't... More

Itinerary Change...help with activities in Moab please! (5 Replies)
After all the great input from my last post, we have decided to make changes to our original itinerary. Due to time and budget constraints, we have eliminated St George/Zion so that we could increase the budget for lodging closer to Moab, and also have added an extra day to each of our stops in Moab and Ouray. New itinerary looks like this: 5/26 Drive from Lincoln, NE to North Platte, NE, stay with family (3.5hrs) 5/27 Drive to Vail, CO, stay overnight (5.25hrs or 8+hrs for long scenic...More

Good move in eliminating the drive to Zion and focusing on Moab. The kids will appreciate it. For your Moab Jeep trip, look at this recent thread where I've outlined a number of rides you can do: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g60724… For your canyoneering, do Ephedra's Grotto with Cliffs and Canyon. If you're concerned on cost, just have the boys do it and you guys hike up Negro Bill Canyon a few miles to met them dropping in off Morning Glory Arch. Well worth it. I would not...More

We are 2 adults, 3 kids (8,10,11) headed to Moab for 6 days in early June. I've learned a lot from the posts so far... We found a great house to rent in the southern part of town on a golf course. So far we plan to do Arches (definitely Delicate Arch) and the Fiery Furnace nps tour at Canyonlands. I found some neat looking geocaches to search for as well. My question is related to other excursions I have looked up. Could anyone provide info on these options? - trails that would be...More

-There is a kids/beginner bike trail at the Bar M Chuckwagon parking lot about 8-9 miles north of town. Ask about it at any local bike shop. -There is a pool at Swanny Park, just a block off of Main St. at 400 North. Can't remember if there is a slide. -My wife did the Canyonlands by Night boat/light show. She thought it was a little hokey, a little long and wished she had brought a pad to sit on. -If you rent a jeep, you can do Gemini Br./Long Cyn on your own, plus much more. If you like...More

Gemini Bridges for a Ford Escape? (2 Replies)
We are planning a family trip for the first week in April. Haven't decided if we are going to rent a jeep for the day. Was wondering if there are any good trails that would be suitable for our Ford Escape. I read that Gemini Bridges might be a good one. Any other reccomendations? Thanks!

You really should be OK there albeit with a bit of caution. It's a bit tougher coming in from the main highway versus Canyonlands road. But it's a great trail. Give yourself enough time and come in from the main highway. The climb up is pretty cool. Then you go through some meadows and some rock ledges which you should be able to manage. Hurrah Pass is another one you can easily do, as well as Long Canyon, Shafer Trail, etc. Have fun.
