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

This is a nice short hike to see Double Arch. We all enjoyed it and we took lots of pictures. You can be out and back in less then an hour. My kids loved it.

Arches National Park is full of breathtaking rock formations, and the Double Arch is no exception. Hike around it for scenic photographs and look up at the huge red rocks for vertigo-inducing but beautiful views.

A short walk from the parking lot and you're there. Great for rather easy climbing (also for kids/teenagers) and there are great possibilities to make some stunning photos (particularly when shooting up the arches). Definitely worth a visit when in Arches.

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.
