Double Arch Trail is a 0.5 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Moab, Utah that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
Short loop hike along a sandy path to massive and spectacular double arch rock formation. One of the most spectacular sights in Arches National Park, Double Arch displays two huge arches intertwined in what looks like a gyroscope. The relatively flat, sandy trail heads to the base of the two giant arch spans. The arch grows bigger and bigger the closer you get, and you can climb high inside to the far window to look west. The spans are massive and the arch shows signs of collapse as boulders are strewn about underneath. From the vantage point in the window of Double Arch, the Windows and Turret Arch appear quite distant. The Parade of Elephants is viewed to the east the rocks look just like a bunch of elephants on parade.
Parked at the windows/turret Arch lot, and did that loop first. Then walked across and down to double. Super easy walk. Chilly in January, but with the sun out it was great at 34 degrees.
Super easy. My toddler had a blast
Incredible views- just be prepared for crowds.
Very easy walk. It's so peaceful up under the Arch.
Easy walk with gorgeous arches, but busy and the parking lot is crazy midday. Probably best to go early before the crowds get there.
Really just a short walk as opposed to a hike. Cool to see the arches and look through from the bottom. Be prepared for tons of people!
Very short but cool to be able to stand under and arch!!
Easy, worst thing would be walking in sand if that bugs you. huge arches, don't realize until you get underneath them. Get VERY crowded, especially mid-day . Worth the little effort it takes to get there
Really enjoyed hiking and seeing the natural arches!
Definitely an easy hike within Arches NP that takes you right into not one, but two arches. There's opportunities to climb and relax, as well as some much needed shade if you've been going in the hot sun all day.
Just beware, the easiness of this hike lends itself to dozens of other tourists to be there at the same time.
