Latest developments in the management of Labyrinth Canyon and Gemini Bridges with the unveiling of the BLM management plan. 11/03/2023
Regrettably, this release brings forth many closures affecting the offroad community. At FunTreks, we promote responsible trail riding through legal routes. The trails impacted by this new plan are listed here. It’s important to note that these changes are based solely on the information provided by the BLM; our usual practice of personally driving the trails was not employed for this update. Rest assured, we actively monitor these updates and will address any emerging concerns over time. Several groups who support the offroad community are challenging the plan. Some say we may see physical signs of trails closed as early as mid-December 2023, but we cannot be certain.
04 Spring Canyon Point see trail page
The spur for Cliff Hanger Arch has been shortened and will end before Waypoint 04.
09 Hey Joe Canyon see trail page
11 Deadman Springs see trail page
The short section between the main trail and Waypoint 04 is hiking only. Out and back to see the distant view of Secret Spire between Waypoint 5 and 6 is closed.
12 Deadman Point see trail page
The spur to the south is the only legal route after Waypoint 07.
16 Hidden Canyon see trail page
You must turn right at Waypoint 07. The narrow, steep-walled sandy wash is closed to motorized.
18 Pickle, Mashed Potatoes see trail page
Mashed Potatoes is closed. When exiting through Hidden Canyon, continue from Waypoint 04 directly to Waypoint 08.
25 Copper Ridge see trail page
There will be a new entrance to this trail. However, we cannot identify what that will be at this point. For now, it would be best to enter the trial starting at Waypoint 02 via Willow Springs Road.
29 Bull Canyon, Day Canyon see trail page
The trail ends after Waypoint 05 where we say the trail gets rocky.
