A must see arch while visiting the park. Beautiful! A great picture opportunity. Mother Nature is wondrous and blessed us here in the US with lots of beautiful scenery.

On this page is says it is a tough 4.2 mile hike. Incorrect. It is actually a very easy hike of a few hundred yards to be able to walk right up to this extraordinary looking place. You can stand right under it with just a little bit of scrambling effort. This is so much easier to get to than... More

View from the top is AWESOME!! We all climbed to the top and it was totally worth it. Try to go earlier in the day.

Not far from the parking lot and beautiful scenery. It is amazing to see how mother nature can sculpt such beauty from sand and rocks. Worth taking the time to do.

It's such a grand sight that you can't capture in pictures. Visitors are able to walk around inside the arch and take in it's beauty.

My kids loved climbing up to this one. I had to watch my 6 year old because he wanted to go to the higher ledge which we did but there is a bit of exposure and a good fall if your not careful. Great time beautiful.

We skipped this short hike initially because of all the hiking we had done and it was hot. After two days exploring Arches National Park, we decided to do one last stop at the double arch. It is well worth the short side trip, beautiful up close! Words of advise for Arches, go early before it gets hot, even 65-70... More

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
