As it's name implies, this is a double arch, there is a hole between them, as you approach them, it's cool to look up through the top. Cool angles to photograph. Not nearly as crowded as Delicate arch, so much more enjoyable. Best lighting for photos is anytime before 1pm.

Short easy hike with a big reward, also there is usually more parking at this lower parking lot than the upper lot for the Windows. Morning has good light for photos.

A none strenuous stroll to some amazing views. You can climb the rocks at the end of the hike which is a bit strenuous, but very rewarding. My kids really enjoyed it!

Could have stayed here all day! The contrast of the azure blue skies against the red of these rock formations are stunning...photos just don't do it justice! Easy hike to get under the rocks for photo ops...a tad more challenging if you want to get under one of the arches. But, whatever your capabilities are, this is a must hike... More

After a long day of driving a Jeep in Moab all day, my wife and I was going to skip this. I am so glad that we decided to not skip this amazing site. the park stays open 24 hours and we went at around 5:00pm, which was a very good time to go since the temp. is cooler and... More

This short walk is a must for everyone. It is a 5-10 minute walk across a fairly level path from the parking lot. The kids can scramble up the rocks and everyone can get great group pictures.

A small half mile hike and then a climb up get you to the top. The view from any and every direction is mind blowing

One of the best parts of Arches National Park is the freedom to explore! We did the easy hike up to Double Arch and then climbed up into the arch. Everyone in our family (sons ages 9, 9, 8 - one of the 9 year olds had a cast on his arm) could easily do the hike and climb. Completely... More

Should actually be called Triple Arch - one in the front, one in the back, and the roof! Easy walk from the parking lot.

This is one of the best arches in the park. It was a very short hike - about 0.5miles roundtrip from the parking lot. Must see while at the park.
