MOAB, Utah — The Bureau of Land Management’s Moab field office has announced a two-year restriction of roped activities at Corona Arch and Gemini Bridges.

Restricted activities include ziplining, highlining, slacklining, climbing, rappelling and rope swinging.

“This temporary restriction provides the BLM with time to continue working with the public to develop appropriate recreation management strategies for these two popular recreation destinations,” Moab Field Office Manager Beth Ransel said in a press release.

The BLM’s decision to restrict roped activities at Corona Arch and Gemini Bridges is in response to comments expressed by the public regarding “user conflicts,” the press release said.
