From the Gemini Bridges it is just a short drive to the intersection of the roads that either go to Potash Road down by the Colorado River or to the Island In The Sky Scenic Byway near Dead Horse Point State Park. This is the final leg of a long Gemini Bridges dirt road journey and the previous articles describe the rest of the trip. This Jeep trail is rated as easy, so just about any high ground clearance vehicle can handle these roads with ease.
The photo album features the option for going to the Island In The Sky. All along this trail there are panoramic mesa top landscapes that stretch out to the horizon and the strange looking eroded red rock formations are the star of the show. The grassy mesa top areas are good spots for wildlife viewing and sometimes Bighorn Sheep can be seen. There are also several famous mountain bike trails to be found, so a world of adventure awaits those who travel on two wheels. Either way, arriving at the Island In The Sky in a 4x4 vehicle covered with red desert dirt is considered to be stylish in Moab, so be sure to not head directly to the car wash after doing this long dusty trip!
