Description: Broad rocky gravel road, with some steep sections and one stretch of ledgy slickrock. Most of the trail is downhill. This trail is used extensively by motorized off-road vehicles on the weekends and it is recommended for weekday riding only.
Driving Directions: Drive south on US-191 for 16 miles south of I-70. Spot the parking area on the west side of the road. GPS N 38° 39.381' W 109° 40.672'. Park in front of the railroad tracks, and head out west on the road. The trailhead is on Highway 313 at a point 0.9 mile west of the Mineral Bottom turnoff (12.6 miles west of the Utah 313/US191 junction).
Biking Directions:
The first section of the trail is a rapid descent for 3.8 miles along a graded road, just after that you enter a huge open flat. Turn right off the main road and go past an abandoned drill site. Ride under a power line and descend into a wooded area where, after 0.9 mile, you will come to the intersection with the Four Arches Trail.
  Continue to parallel the Bull Canyon system on your right, until just before the end of the large open area. At this point another trail crosses your route; go right at this intersection and then up over a low sandy hill and descend to the Gemini Bridges. The Gemini Bridges are located at the end of this spur. After viewing the bridges, return to the main trail.
  The next stretch of the trail winds through a wooded area and is mostly slickrock. You then rejoin the road that you left at the drill pad. Go right and descend into Little Canyon. You will come to the intersection with the Bull Canyon Trail. Go left to stay on the Gemini Bridges Trail. Continue the descent into Little Canyon down a steep section. At the bottom of the hill is the intersection with the Gold Bar Rim Trail. The Gemini Bridges trail goes left. Beyond Gooney Bird Rock, the main trail continues its gradual ascent through Little Canyon. Near the head of the canyon, the road leaves the canyon bottom and climbs a fairly steep grade. The road then quickly descends to the railroad tracks and Highway 191.
