Two huge natural bridges
13.1 miles point to point
Yes but I would not recommend allowing them near the bridges due to giant drops
We did this easily in a stock truck. 4x4 is recommended especially if it has rained lately. OHV's are also allowed on the road.

Gemini Bridges is one of the most popular spots in Moab. This route takes you to the top of the the bridges where you can walk out onto them. The route will pop you out on the Grand View Point road near Canyonlands National Park. For the most scenic view you would need to see from below in what is called Bull Canyon. The start of the road is signed and is just north of the turn for Arches National Park. We did this in a stock truck and I found the whole route very easy. 4×4 would be nice some times of year. We did the whole route and got out and views the bridges for 20 minutes and still finished in under an hour. The trail immediately begins to climb. You can see some of the very basic rock crawling you will be doing.
You can see the highway far below you.
Once up in the valley you will follow a pretty little canyon with great Moab scenery.
You will see the sign informing you that you are at the bridges. You can see Bull Canyon far below you.
Be very careful around the bridges. It is a very very long fall to the bottom. There are videos roaming around Youtube of people jumping the gap between the two. Do NOT do this. It would be very stupid. A fall would mean death and probably ruin a good thing for all of us being able to enjoy Gemini Bridges. Two people have died trying. So be safe and have fun! The bigger of the two is 85 feet tall but the fall into the canyon could be much higher.
There is a huge overhang west of the bridges that allows you to see the openings.
We also walked to the east a bit to where we could get a good view of the bigger of the two bridges. We had a fun time exploring and seeing the huge bridges. Pictures certainly don’t do it any justice.
If you would like to see the bridges from below you can take the OHV trail in Bull Canyon to the east of the bridge where it is a flat half mile walk to great views from the canyon below.
Keep heading past the bridges and the road will pop you out on the Grand View Point road near Canyonlands.
This is a great area to explore. Its perfect for an evening drive to see some classic and pretty Moab scenes.
