Arguably my favorite hike at Arches. while its not very long the inside of the arch is spectacular and has a nice spot off to the right for a cool shady spot to nap.

Hardest part is finding a parking spot.

The weather killed the one for me. 106 the whole way. Other than that, beautiful and a must see at least once.

Why see one arch when you could see TWO? A must see in Arches NP. Easy path. For pictures and information about this trail and more follow me on Instagram @nathan_vanengen

Very short; easy walk from parking to double arch. One of the most amazing arches in the park. Fun to scramble around rocks at base of arch. Get out of the car and walk underneath as the view is best from the base of the arch.

Not much of a hike but definitely worth it. We got lucky and were there at 3pm and had the place to ourselves for a good 15min. Once you’re done getting your pictures facing Double Arch, climb up it a little and take a picture facing out. That was a nice surprise.

Quick hike to an amazing rock structure. The hike to get there gives you a great view of the vast park's canyons. Double Arch is fairly hidden, and I was the only one there. It was so quiet, I nabbed this amazing photo of a squirrel that was chilling by the arc.

Cool arch. The swarm of humanity and screaming kids sucked!

You can get out of the car and walk to it in like 2 minutes, so the hike is a joke. However, the views are completely worth it. climb up under the arch for double the fun.

Went in January, trail was muddy and a bit icy but fine. This is a very short hike but do not skip it! The double arch is breathtaking and gets better and better if you can scramble up a bit and see it more up-close. Just be careful of the slippery rocks as the end, but this is a can’t-miss!

Nice trail. Done in July and went early, maybe 6 am or so to avoid crowds. Only maybe 15-20 other people hanging at the arch when we got there. Go early to avoid crowds and scorching heat. Love all trails at Arches, really felt like we were in another world.
