“Double Arch”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

First of all, please note that the description of this attraction is NOT correct. The arch is located close to the parking lot near the windows section and does NOT require a 4.2 mile hike through challenging terrain!
You can make a short walk to the arches and you can even climb up a little bit to sit in a "window". All in all, very nice arches to visit, especially because it is so easy to get to them.

“Two of a kind”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

In my opinion, this is the most unusual, engrossing arch (set of arches) in the park. These partners are gigantic and photographic, and you walk under the first one and climb up right under the second one. Be careful though, it's straight off on the other side, but the view is striking. If you aren't experienced at climbing, the final 10-15feet are relatively easy going up, but twice as difficult descending. If you are a mountain goat, you can actually go to a higher point still under the arch, and also down the other side (my son had no problem with either). Easy quarter-mile walk to get there and stand directly under the massive bellies of two natural arches with one starting point in common. Unlike the also dramatic Balanced Rock and Landscape Arch, this baby will be standing tens of thousands of years in the future.

“Always worth a Look”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Easy hike from parking lot. Can be very dramatic. Probably better in morning (for photos anyway). Hardest part is all the other people!
