We drove our rented Jeep on this easy off-road drive and loved hiking around the Gemini Bridges. A fun stop for any trip to Moab.

Try and get there early in the morning as the quiet of the area is amazing. Make sure and walk across both parts of the natural bridges to get a good perspective. If you come from Hwy 191 the road is a little rough so I would suggest Hwy 313.

Both the road and the short hike to Gemini Bridges offer very easy access to this natural wonder. It is rare that you can actually walk across the top of a natural bridge, but you can with Gemini Bridges. This is a fun family trip in the Moab area.

We used 4 wheelers to access the Gemini Bridges in June 2012 (selections for a visit more than a year old are not available in Trip Advisor so I used June 2013 for TA selection) I was with a group that had been there before. The road was dry and dusty but fun to ride. Three of our group stopped at the canyon bottom below Gemini Bridges and hiked the approximately 1/2 mile to the area below GB. The hike was easy (but hot) most of which was up a dry, flat, sandy stream bed. We found some shade and rested a bit while also taking photos. We stayed about 15 minutes. The hike from parking back to parking was about 45 minutes.

After seeing GB from the bottom, we drove back to the intersection and to the top of the rim to a developed parking area near the top of the GB. From the parking area to the GB was a hike of about 100 yards and an elevation drop about about 50 feet. We found no specific trail to the GB, but looking on Google Earth shows that if you drive to the larger main parking lot, there is a developed trail to the GB. I suggest using the developed trail. We apparently had not driven far enough to find the larger developed parking lot.

Use great care walking around the GB. There are no guard rails or protection to prevent a careless person from falling several hundred feet below. The edges are sloped towards the middle of the giant hole in the rock and sandstone can be slippery because of the loose sand that is always present. Hold on to your children's hand.

The visit from the top can be done in about 15 - 30 minutes but the drive to the GB could take up to an hour from highway 191 depending on the vehicle you use (mountain bike would be at least a couple hours).

What you must know is if you are starting from Moab off of 191 ... The trail gets steep, rough and quite high up. It doesn't last for too long ... But it is always best to know before hand. It is a very pretty ride with a lot of great scenery.
