Two Tortoise Trail

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

In this direction, you will get mostly downhill rocky ledges and drop offs. It is a fast trail with little climbing. Almost all of the trail is on rock and hard dirt. The end of the trail connects with 4wd Gold Bar rim road. This portion has alot of sand but once you connect back to the main Gemini Road it is plain 4wd road.

Trail Directions
Ride this as you would to get to the Gold Bar Rim / Gemini Bridges. Take 191 North and turn left before you get to 313. There should be a railroad crossing and a small parking lot. Ride up Gemini Bridge Trail until you get to a sign showing Gold bar rim to the left. Take the steep hill upward and ride until you come to a sign showing Bull Canyon left and Gemini Bridges right. Take a left. You are now on Bull Canyon trail. About another 1.5 miles you will come to an Y intersection. The left looks like its a dead end but further investigation will show it goes up the hill on your left. The right to take you into Bull Canyon. Take the left here. It is not marked (we missed it the first time). From here you climb up the hill and will see a distinct trail going towards Two Tortoise Rock. This is where I call the start of Two Tortoise trail.

Summary:
I was able to ride this trail twice, clockwise and counter-clockwise. Both ways seems equally fun. The trail elevation change is basically like a "V", downhill at the beginning and climb at the end.

This trail is partially 4x4 trail with a little singletrack. It's fairly easy with a nice downhill with many many ledges. Near the bottom when you're below Two Tortoise, it may be hard to find the trail. You need to look for cairns.

Recommended Route:
Either way is fine. But it can be hard to find the trail beginning if you go counter-clockwise.
