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.

This is more of a walk than a hike. If you have the opportunity walk outside of the trail and explore around these arches. Also the prehistoric trail is awesome.
