This is one of my two favorites in Arches. Its attraction lay in its simple aesthetics. The other being Park Avenue. When one is standing below the arches, one can shoot up and capture the double arches in one simple shot. In the morning sunlight, the colors come out beautifully in hues of yellow, orange, and maroon. Enjoy!

My favorite in the park. Was so cool to lay under the one and look up. The color was spectacular and a short hike for kids

There is a nice trail to double arch. You can't see it from the parking lot. It is worth the hike. Take a couple of hours and visit both double arch and windows from the same parking space.

This arch is a mere walk from the road, and fantastic for climbing and scrambling all over. We hung out there for probably 45 minutes just climbing around. It's also an amphitheater and really fun to sing in.

Nice, pretty close to the parking lot. You can expect a lot of hikers who do not perform the harder trails like primitive trail. You have to sometimes wait for taking picture without tons of people, but this is also place to see when you are in Arches.

Compared to the Delicate Arch, this hike was a nice break from the crazy heights and steep slopes. The hike/walk isn't very hard from the parking area to the Double Arch. Once you get to the Double Arch, there are lots of rocks and areas to climb up and explore. The red arch stands out bold against the bright blue... More

The thing that amazes me most about this place is the sheer size of it. The photos of the arches here are more interesting when you consider the relative size of the people climbing around in them. It's an easy walk from the parking lot and easy as well to climb up in it, so this one can be enjoyed... More

One of my favorite parks. For a physically limited photographer, it is one of the most accessible parks for me. The rock formations are beyond beautiful.

If you have come to Arches you realize you may be in the most beautiful area in the world. The hike to Double Arch is relatively easy, just bring some water. We went over Labor day weekend and it was very busy. But when it came to viewing the arch up close there wasn't too many people. It's really crazy... More
