Gemini Bridges/Magnificent 7 Area Trails
Gemini Bridges is one of the unique geologic features of the Moab area that shouldn’t be missed. The Gemini Bridges area has been popular with mountain bikers for many years. In recent years, new trails have been constructed that have transformed the area.
There are seven new sections of trail totaling 27.2 miles, with two more long segments on the way. The total mileage for the system is now 61 miles. The new trails, which are almost all singletrack, have added variety and stunning views to the mountain biking experience. All of the trails can be ridden in either direction, however some of the trails are more fun to ride downhill. There are maps and signs at every junction in the system. Riders should bring their own maps for navigation. Maps are available as printouts off of this site or for purchase on waterproof paper at all local bike shops.
This trail system is a popular shuttle system with riders utilizing local shuttle companies or orchestrating their own shuttle. These shuttled rides often end in Moab by utilizing the Moab Canyon paved bike path which starts at the junction of Highways 313 and 191. Some riders also park at trail junctions in the middle of the system and knit together loops around their vehicles. Another option for expert and very fit riders is to connect the Gold Bar Singletrack Trail to the Portal Trail or the Poison Spider Jeep Trail and on to Moab. This ride is very tough and should be reserved for the hardy few who want an extreme challenge.
