In an area with arch after arch, Double Arch stands out as one of the coolest you can venture to along a very easy and short walk. We walked over to Double Arch after doing the primitive trail around Windows (which shouldn't be missed either). You've GOT to have your camera along as the view of Double Arch actually changes...

It's a most unique arch created by water erosion from above rather than from the side. This is called a pothole arch and is the only one created in Arches National Park in this way. Considering there are 2,000 natural occurring arches in the park. The largest opening has a span of 148' and a height of 104'. From the... More

We hiked up the Double Arch right after our hike to the Delicate Arch. This trail was much less crowded and just as beautiful. We were lucky enough to visit when the sun was going down, making for some really cool images/shadows.

Back in the Windows section stands a grand champion - Double Arch. The trail is easy and it takes about 15 minutes to get back to this amazingly complex arch - you have to see it to believe it. If you have limited time in the park, I think this is a "must see" and highly recommend it. At sunset... More

Others are right, don't overlook this when visiting Windows...its much more impressive once you get up into it. It was fun to climb and explore and experiment with the different angles for photographs. We lingered here because it provided some nice shade on a hot summer day!

It doesn't look it from the parking lot but this is very worth the hike and provides fabulous close photo opportunities -- both posed photos of people and up close great views of the arch.

You can good photos here. The hike is nothing. Wait for the proper light, which is late in the day. It's next to the windows and Turret arch.

The double arch is easy to see from the parking lot/road, but worth parking, getting out and walking up to see them up close. They are even more fun to photograph them if you get just the right angle. Walking on the red rocks is a little surreal, and it's a fun super-mini-hike up to stand right underneath them. Bonus...

This was a nice and easy hike. It was well worth getting a closer view of the arches. This is very close to the Window Arch.
