You stand and wonder at the erosion that caused this double arch formation. From the car park you can also access the windows arches which are 'over the road'

Can't missing seeing Double Arch. It is a very short walk from the parking area (.5 miles round trip) and you can walk around in the arch. It is right by the Windows Trail (at the other end of the parking lot) and there are a lot of people around because of the short/easy hike. Don't miss this as it... More

Perfect to stand beneath and get that memorable photo! Or just gaze and contemplate the power of nature!! This is really quite a large, stunning formation.

In and of itself, Double Arch is another of the uniquely beautiful land forms in Arches National Park, especially when the sunrise changes the colors and shadows by the minute. But--if you happen to be there at the right time, like late October at sunrise, there is another surprise off to the right. A small hole in the rock, one... More

At first as you begin the walk to see these arches all you can see is one. You need to get close to see the double arch. Once there you notice all these people sitting up there for photographs.

So I stumbled onto the Double Arch bye parking at a pull off way before the actual parking area. I hiked out to the back arch and then around the rocks to see that it was the Double Arch. I had to set my tripod up and wait for quite sometime before the shot was clear of any other people.... More

This is one of the best, and popular, ones in the park. The double arch is visible from the parking lot (limited spaces) and is grand in size and sight. If you want a people free picture visit early or late as it gets busy.

I thought these arches were spectacular. HUGE. Don't miss these and the nearby Windows arches. A lot to see with minimal hiking. Only Delicate was a better arch. Don't miss this!

We were there on July 12. Weather is hot. With two kids and grandma, grandpa, we were not able to go to Fiery Furnace and Delicate Arch. Double Arch is my most favorite among all the other arches we visited in the park. Short hike. The view is spectacular when standing.

This feature is just a short walk from the parking area. That was a good thing for us as Mrs. M was ill and couldn't do much on this visit. We spent about 90 minutes driving through the park and stopping at three formations to get a closer looks. Double Arch is the only one Mrs. M got out of... More
