Great trail and hike to double o arch especially the second half which required a little scrambling. We paired this primitive trail loop. Felt this experience was much more enjoyable compared to delicate arch.

Excellent hike to the arches. Some trails not marked but enough peoe yo help out. Highly recommend early morning but stay away from the non heat.

After reading the reviews I was feeling nervous about all of the heights, but this hike was spectacular! Each scramble and climb on open rock surfaces was thrilling!! Don’t miss out on this hike! Getting to the trailhead early is the best way to go. This way you avoid the extreme heat!

Very busy, go early.

What a spectacular hike with truly amazing and breathtaking views. Don’t let the climb from Landscape arch scare you. It’s not as bad as it looks. This is a must do hike. Much better IMO than the Delicate Arch hike in that you are wowed the whole way from Landscape until reaching the Double O. We started at 7:30 and finished about 10:30 with plenty of photo taking in between.

Less trafficked trail leading to another interesting arch formation. Can involve some scrambling as there are some big rocks along the way. A nice change from the arches closer to the roads because there aren't nearly as many people around.

This trail takes you past several arches, each special in it's grandeur, such as Landscape Arch and others as a frame to the valleys below. Other spectacular features are the sandstone fins on the way to the Double O. Hike traverses both gentle terrain and some scrambling on the slickrock. As with most of the popular hikes, start out earlier as it is less crowded and the weather a bit cooler.

Arch ya gunna be glad you did this one! We three lads tackled this beaut with a burning for adventure. Oh my lanta, did we find it. The primitive trail is just that, great for those who enjoy a little parkour n’ sand under their boots. Rocks you can scramble, and views you can ponder till your head implodes. Oh, and the arches, you’ll just have to go see those wonders of God yourself. My narrative is good, but not that good.

Fantastic hike! Better than Delicate Arch in my opinion. Varied rock structures make for interesting and breathtaking views. Steep at beginning coming up from Primitive Loop by Landscape Arch, but not too bad throughout the trail. Highly recommend! Bring LOTS of water!!

Cool to see - fun to scramble down to this one after doing some of the easier one that are simply just a "walk" versus a hike.

Completed this one as part of a larger hike also going to Double O, Navajo, and Dark Angel.
Crowds clear significantly after Landscape Arch.

The best hike I have ever been on! Tons of diversity along the hike with large fins everywhere. Views are breath taking!

Went for a sunset hike and ended up at Double O Arch. It was unreal, but definitely bring a headlamp and go in a group. One of the more memorable hikes I've ever completed.

Nice arch, the traffic is starting to thin because of distance and because it is a primitive trail once you leave Landscape arch.

We did the loop and had a great experience. Most of the traffic ended after Landscape Arch. The trail goes "primitive" after Landscape. Amazing scenery. The trail is easy to follow. The weather was great while we were there in March, but summer would be brutal with the heat.

Nice but heavily used trail that goes past Landscape Arch and has spur trails to many other arches
