Gemini Bridges and Bull Canyon

September 12, 2013
There was one other area we visited in Moab, UT that I never got around to sharing. That is Gemini Bridges and Bull Canyon. It's a popular Mountain Bike trail, but UTVs and Jeeps are also welcome. Riding out you might miss it if you're not paying close attention. It doesn't look like much at first glance.

But as you get closer, it's really spectacular. From the trail you simply see the flat tops, but as you near the two bridges that have formed the canyon becomes obvious. The flat tops sit about 250 feet above the canyon this vantage point allows fantastic views. Extreme adrenaline junkies make the jump between the two bridges. Check out You Tube for videos. It's positively insane. If you fall, you die. We stood over a crevice and that was enough thrills for us. I cannot imagine the Gemini jump.

After peering down into the canyon, we had to experience it. We drove down to Bull Canyon despite the threatening storms in the area. Which could be potentially dangerous because of flash floods, but we felt confident they'd keep their distance. Fortunately, they did and we hiked deep into the canyon to spot the bridges up above. This perspective was less as impressive...

As far as the bridges were concerned, but the canyon walls were monstrous. Frank stood in the crevice that raging waters created and at 6'3" he looks so tiny you almost miss him.

This area was one of the more scenic places we rode in Moab. We really enjoyed it.
