Each arch is special. If you have the time see the uniqueness of each one. Enjoy the echo of the canon here also. Have a video of son singing to his daughter.

You will find these arches. In the whole park you can find better ones but still, it is nice to see. Have you done Delicate Arch or Landscape then this one will not bring you much more. But still, if you have time, go for it. Bring plenty of water though, it can get very warm there on a summers... More

This hike is super easy from the parking lot. Kids climbed all the way up and into the arch to sit. Kids enjoyed climbing all over the rocks and we got some great pictures. Not too busy when we went, just a couple of families. We went mid morning and it was beautiful.

This is the best arch to go to if you are non-hikers but are willing to walk 5 minutes on an easy walkway. You can see it well from the parking lot, but walking up closer is worth it. You can even walk a little further and climb up into it, a hit with the kids.

We did this .3 mile hike in mid day when the temperature was 107. Parking is very busy with a constant turnover. The hike is level and fairly easy. You can climb up some steep rocks and get some amazing close-up views of the arches above you. Pictures are difficult with 40+ people sitting on the rocks. You need water,... More

It's an easy hike, therefore a bit crowded. Hard to get pictures without other people in it. If you don't have the ability to hike out to Delicate Arch this is a nice alternative. Excellent red rock views.

In the Windows section of the park this arch was a bit more tricky to photograph at just the right angle to reveal it's two arches, particularly if you park and just walk up the hill in the parking area instead of going onto the trail toward the double arch. If you want to snap a shot without tourists climbing... More

We took some water, some snacks, and made our way out to Double Arch mid-day. It was hot, but we found some shade once we got there & enjoyed some relaxation time under one of the BEST arches in Arches. Don't be fooled- these arches are huge! There are lots of places to climb and explore once you're there, but... More

This trail is very short and easy to do with kids. The arch is quite impressive and very photogenic (when there are no people under it). If you cannot see Delicate Arch (for heat or health reasons), you should definitively do Double Arch; most of the trail is gravel and fairly level.

Amazing site, very crowded though. Go early while the sun is still low. The colors are gorgeous and it's a short hike. Budget about an hour to walk and enjoy the view.
