Double Arch has some of the best views I've seen in all my travels. You can get the feel of being in the middle of nowhere and it's only a half mile roundtrip from the parking lot to the arch and back.

Starting at the parking lot, which is at about 5,000 feet of elevation, it is a short walk of .25 miles to the Double Arch. Pictures of the arch are amazing but if you want to get some semblance of the size it is best to get somebody in the pictures to give it scale. It is also a fun place to rock hop and climb around. If you hike/climb all the way up into the top right of the cave you can take pictures facing west through one of the arches getting some phenomenal scenery in the background. There are many beautiful places in this park but if you are looking for something that is quick and easy but incredibly rewarding at the same time. I highly recommend the Double Arch in Arches National Park
