Worth taking this side trail while doing the Devil's Garden.

WOW! This hike was pretty hard. There is a section of it that is climbing over boulders and rocks. However, the view is amazing and the Double O Arch is pretty cool. We did not get all the way to Dark Angel, but we did get as far as the Double O Arch; if I ever go back I am going to go all the way!!!

This trail is an .5 mile extension of the the Double Arch trail and is less busy because most people stop at Double O Arch. It's worth the short amount of time it takes hike the easy trail to Dark Angel.
