Deadman's Ridge Trail
Deadman's Ridge is a expert-level trail in the Brand Trails complex north of Moab. It connects the southern end of the Lazy-EZ loop to the northern end of the Bar B loop. From there, it connects to the Longbranch, then descends to the Old 191 paved trail. The trail is 3.4 miles in length. It will climb from 4200 feet elevation at the Bar B to 4500 feet, with a lot of short ups and downs along its length. It descends to Old 191 at 4100 feet elevation.

When you see the Gemini Bridges parking area, look for a gravel road on the opposite side (east, away from the cliffs). Turn onto the gravel road and immediately go right. Drive past the first parking lot. (This is restaurant parking or fee parking GPS N 38 39.38' W 109 40.66'.) As you approach the fence and kiosk at the paved trail, turn left and drive 1/4 mile to the gravel parking lot in the bottom of the valley N38 39.107 W109 40.110.
Alternate: From Moab, ride the Old Highway 191 (paved trail) until you reach the Bar M sign and kiosk. Turn left and follow the broad dirt trail, which is the southern end of the Bar M trail.
