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.

Make sure to take the primitive trail on the way back. Watch out for crazy families climbing the interior of the double arch dome.

Short easy hike. Super crowded because it was so short and easy. Neat to see, worth it for the quick walk.

Quick, albeit mobbed, ditty that yields great pics and a nice rest in the shade. Couple this with a jaunt over to The Windows (same parking area).
