Great trail! We connected this with the courthouse rock trail for a total of 8 miles!! Beautiful sites and a fun but slightly challenging hike!

Love love love this trail! So beautiful, pictures do not capture how stunning the views are. My only disappointment was the sheer number of people...at first it felt more like a tourist attraction rather than a peaceful hiking retreat. Oh, and WATCH OUT for potholes on the way to the trailhead. There are some that might crack your axle if you hit them right! I went clockwise as suggested by another reviewer (glad I did BTW), and it got much better (a LOT less traffic) once I got onto the trail to Double Arch off the wide ATV/walking path leading up to it. Encountered lots of doggies in the trail - loved that part! Everyone was very friendly and courteous. I will defo be hiking this one again in the future (hopefully during the week next time when it may not be as crowded) - many spots to sit and contemplate the views solo, or have a romantic picnic with your “person” :).

Great trail. The view from the arch and the view from on top of the arch is amazing. Bring water. Not too tough though.

This was a beautiful moderate hike. Bring plenty of water. Trail is fully shaded, but it was still hot. The double arches are stacked on top of each other. I’m still in aw over those double arches, how long that took to form.

Another solid trail to bring the pups. We enjoyed the long hike and ended it with yoga. Try not to do it right on the edge like me. It was a hot day, so, by my first mountain pose... I blacked out and almost fell over the edge lol.

Hiked with a teen and two dogs. Was challenging but totally doable. If you take dogs, be sure to take plenty of water. The view from the arch is God’s handiwork in all its splendor.

Enjoyed an overnight backpacking trip Very Nice trail The gravel road is just a warmup Varying degrees of elevation Cool rock formations and crops Cool wild life including a few rattle snake and a wild cat near our campsite at night The arch is majestic touched by the hand of God Hiked in memory of our beloved friend Fallen Decorated US Army Soldier

We took the trail counterclockwise. Great hike to the arch and the arch was great. Hike from the arch to the grays parking area was pretty boring. Before you go up the steps you can circle around them and there is a cool little arch.

Had an absolute blast on this trail! The majority is pretty flat except for two really steep areas. Camped by the arch and would highly recommend watching the sunset through the arch!

Great hike. The first mile is very easy on a gravel road, but then once you hike down into the forest it gets harder. the view at the arch is amazing, and if you're able to, climbing to the top of the arch provides and even better view that is definitely worth it.

Great hike, rugged terrain. A good days hike to do this and courthouse rock combined.

I didn’t mind the gravel road. It follows a ridge line through the woods and was very pleasant. We combined this hike with Star Arch which made a 6.25 mile hike. It was easy walking with staircases for the few steep sections. Some views of Courthouse Rock and nice views from the arch.

Agree with everyone who says the first 1.25 mi isn't too exciting. Its an easy walk with minimal elevation change down a gravel road, however, there are still some good views along the way and in mid to late October, during peak leaf change the trees are magnificent. The last mile weaves through ldt and has some decent elevation change. The arch at the end and the view if give is worth it. Going to the top of the arch is icing on the cake.

It was alright, the trail maps (from the park) and trail signs poorly judge the distance to and from different points. Also at several times the trails were quite overgrown with poison ivy. However, the arch itself was beautiful along with the sights through the arch. I would highly suggest taking the final trail to walk across the arch for the higher view of the valley and other ridges!

The trail was very pretty and I enjoyed being in dense woods. The rock formations all along the trail were fantastic, and climaxed at the double arch. Our group enjoyed exploring and even saw some cool wildlife, such as a small green snake, a lizard, and a black widow spider. I would warn anyone who is planning to go on this hike that there are obvious hazards (such as the aforementioned spider), but also a ton of poison ivy. My sister is very allergic, so we had to be exceedingly careful to avoid it. This need for caution did detract from the overall enjoyability of the hike. Despite this, the four star rating is still well earned.

Awesome trail! Easy first half with the gravel road. After dropping into the gorge, your greeted with some great rock formations, cliffs, and shelters. After arriving to the arch, be sure to climb on top and to the left for an incredible 360 degree view. Just be careful, the first 150’ step is a doozie! Do some exploring on top as well in the opposite direction.

This is a nice Arch with a great view. Half of this hike is a gravel road. Not great. Other half is a nice trail. Keep kids from the 140 foot cliff at the Arch. Would have a better rating except the boring gravel road.. I’d do this hike again but after I finish all the other trails at the Gorge first.

One of my favs. Lovely hike with amazing views.

The first 1.25 miles is a little boring, because you are walking on a gravel path. The whole hike is definitely worth the end result. Double Arch is an amazing Arch in the Gorge, and the view from the top of the arch are spectacular. You get a great view of Courthouse Rock and Auxier Ridge.

Took my GSD here looking for a fairly challenging trail with good views. I truly enjoyed it. Lots of roots and rocks so perhaps not ideal for trail running (atleast for me because I'm a klutz) but it was great for hiking. The traffic wasn't heavy and fellow hikers were friendly. I would reccomend pants and lots of water as there is a bit of growth in places and it was about 80°f and my pup and I went through 2 liters easily.
