Longbranch Trail
The Longbranch Trail is 1.1 miles in length, and is part of the Brand Trails complex just north of Moab. It's not a stand-alone trail. To reach either end, you need to cover a couple of miles on expert-level singletrack trail. Your minimum ride will be several miles. Longbranch is expert-level technical, and is one of the more difficult in the Brand Trails area. It might be a tad tougher than Deadman's Ridge (which is a bit tougher than Bar B), but not as hairy as Killer B.

12.2 At parking
Getting there:  From the north, exit I-70 at Crescent Junction and drive south on US-191 for 22 miles. From Moab, drive 7 miles north from the Colorado River on 191. 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.
