This hike was great! I would recommend doing this early in the day as the park does get crowded later in the day and to anyone craving a little bit more of a challenge/smaller crowds. You start the hike headed to the Landscape Arch, which is beautiful but a very crowded part of the trail. Definitely continue onto the Double... More

See my review of the Devils Garden Trail which is the trail to these arches. We ended up there in the afternoon, and the colors from within the "O"'s were amazing.. Not a lot of people at these arches as the trail is pretty tough and unusual.. if you like hiking this is a must.

A beautiful arch. A must see while you're in the park. The hike is long and a little difficult, but can be done. You get multiple arches in one hike. Make sure to take water.

The hike is 4-4.2 miles roundtrip, with a few more arches on the way. There is a lot of rock-face walking and some of it at great heights and narrow path. The hike is rated moderate but if you have a problem with heights - avoid. The arches are cool, but honestly, I enjoyed the hike and the varying terrain... More

This is one of the most unique arches in the Park located off Devils Garden. It's not an easy hike by any means and I wouldn't recommend it for inexperienced hikers, however, if you can handle a moderate hike, it will be well worth your time. Not only do you get to see a double arch but there are other... More

This Double Arch is located near the northern most end of the Devil's Garden Trail and is quite a hike to get to but as with all the arches, worth the trip if you can make it.

The hike through Devil's Garden is tons of fun, but the arch at the end of our hike (Double O) was not that exciting. The arch is neat, but we didn't get too close, as we were really exhausted at this point. You can hike down to it, but we stayed at the viewpoint. Definitely a fun hike, so I... More

We went in December conditions with snow and ice on the ground. It was challenging but well worth it. Fabulous views along the way where you feel like you are at the end of the world. Going on to Dark Angel was well worth it. In winter conditions, this is a hike for experinced hikers with appropriate gear.

The arch was honestly disappointing because the hike was pretty challenging. The hike isn't very long or tiring, but the steep rocks and the narrow rockfin are scary. Returning is even scarier as you look down 150 ft along a very steep and smooth rock face. This is not for the faint of heart. You MUST have hiking shoes and... More

We did this arch in the morning just before sunrise. It was cool enough to walk to, and the trail was easy and short from the parking lot. When you reach the bottom of the arch, you're actually standing underneath it. And the view? Endless! Absolutely stunning. The sunrise? Phenomenal! The colors of the sky mixed with the rocks was...
