Easy and mildly underwhelming. Fun little cave in you’re small enough to wiggle yourself into it. Amazing views if you go under the arch and walk past all the boulders.

Crazy easy trail with beautiful views for not a lot of work. Very clearly a trail. Part of the staircase going back up was broken though.

Easy hike and absolutely beautiful!

Difficult somewhat but it’s a beautiful place at the top to look out and just relax. Loved going with my friend

Great views along the trail on both sides as it traverses along the ridge. It is a popular trail and dog friendly so it was quite busy on our hike. It was a bit muddy in shaded vales which made the rocks there slippery but it really wasn’t an issue. Our two dogs didn’t even finish the hike muddy. Being December 30 it was unusually warm at nearly 60°. All in all it was a very pleasant hike. I recommend it and will likely hike it again someday.

This was a fun hike with incredible views! It’s my favorite hike in the Gorge! Once you get to Court House Rock, you can take Double Arch trail, which I highly recommend. You’ll hike through forest and alongside a river. Once you make it up to Double Arch, there is an amazing view!

Great short and easy walk. Our two dogs thoroughly enjoyed the trail too. The arch represents its name well. It’s pretty small, as arches go, but worth the short trek. There’s a memorial marker at the trailhead for a hiker who was killed in a fall here so exercise caution. The trail is well marked and seemingly trafficked a good bit. The washed out section of road (from previous reviews) is no longer an issue. The Forest Service has apparently fixed it. We didn’t encounter one.
We were here between Christmas and New Year’s so there was little or no foliage but it was still beautiful.
There is a parking lot and pit toilets at the trailhead. Rest room was closed due to a government shut down though.

Stunning arch. Long staircases, but manageable.

This is my favorite trail in Red River. It’s a short, easy loop trail with amazing scenery. The arch itself is gorgeous and I love that you walk across it and then under it as part of the loop. I’ve hiked it dozens of times, even with dogs and my 4 year old son. I keep going back to this one, because it’s just perfect.

Amazing views, not too difficult. Just too many people, but still worth it.

Not a loop trail,Begins at Koomer Ridge Campground and ends at a junction with Rough Trail. Silvermine Arch is not on this trail as another reviewer posted.

Dog friendly! Several pups on the trail!

Short hike with a pretty good view of the gorge. I wouldn’t go out of my way to do this trail again.

I did the loop over the weekend and it was amazing!!!!! I can’t wait to get back there!!!

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

Perfect level of difficulty. Tons of steps. Devils gulch was a lot of scary fun for the kids.

The terrain made for a very fun hike. The views were incredible, especially the view of Double Arch.

wow, I thought I had seen all the arches , this is a must see!! the little falls past the arch is so beautiful... don't miss this hike!!!

If you have kids or just a short time in the gorge, you can do Angels Window, Whistling Arch and Sky Bridge and see 3 arches without much time,travel,or effort.

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.
