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...

The arch is cool, but the trail from landscape arch to double o is amazing and not to be missed. You walk on top of exposed fins with great Vistas....

This was a somewhat strenuous hike getting to the arches, so make sure you give yourself time and take water. We were able to climb onto the top of the arch, which was a thrilling experience! The view was magnificent, and there were many other arches to see along the way. I would recommend this arch, along with any others... More

Depart early in the morning for perfect sunlight (for photography), and for a perfect temperature. This area does not receive predictable breezes, so you should avoid the heat of the mid-day. The walk is easy, but wear closed toes shoes else you'll be constantly kicking out sand and decomposed granite. Pictures cannot tell the scope or magnitude of the double... More

Our son and his fiancee said their wedding vows on Saturday, 6/7 in the smaller of the two arches. They love visiting Arches and this is their favorite spot in the park....It's a beautiful hike....make sure you take lots of water.

At the end of Devils Garden trail, you will find this double O. It is not too much nice as the others, but overlook from the rock on the other side is nice. You can then choose primitive trail or main trail on the way back.

I had read this was an adventurous hike so I was surprised that the beginning of the hike (think about .5 miles) was totally flat - basically a sandy sidewalk. There is plenty to see but not exciting. The trail gets much more fun once you start going up the steep trail after Landscape Arch right beyond the fence. This... More

Hike to Double O Arch was an excellent way to escape crowds at Arches NP in mid August. The trail isn't the easiest one, but it's definitely worth it. The views along the trail are just spectacular, especially at the sunset, The Devil's Garden with The Double O Arch is a charming quiet place. Wear good hiking shoes and don't... More

The hike there was on a sandy path and it couldn't have taken more than 15 minutes to get there. Very pretty at sunset.

Arches NP was the first stop on our 3-week road trip my son and I just finished. There are certainly nicer arches to be seen, but this one is fairly unique and the Devil's Garden Trail was a really nice hike to reach it though certain sections of it can be challenging if you're not prepared. As with many of... More
