Hike to Double O Arch

4.2 Miles Total - Loop Trail

Originally added by Hillary + Matt

This is a 4.2 mile round trip hike that will leave you breathless! Double O Arch is unique because it features two arches stacked on top of each other.

Starting at the Devils Garden Trailhead, this 4.2 mile looped moderate hike features flat sandy paths to narrow sandstone slabs with narrow ledges. Best time to complete this hike is early in the morning. Getting to the Devils Garden Trailhead at sunrise will almost definitely guarantee you a parking spot and will help you beat the heat. This hike offers little sun protection and no water sources along the way so make sure you are prepared. Make sure you keep an eye out for the trail because at some points it can easily vanish.

Far Enough Away From The Crowds

Double O is pretty awesome. It is far enough away from the trailhead and other arches that it does not get very crowded. This is a great place to stop and have some lunch before continuing on the Primitive Loop.

Very Quiet

The least crowded trail we encountered on our Utah trip. We had the Double O arch all to ourselves around 9 am The trail does get a little fuzzy so be weary of where you are going.

Great Solitude in a Crowded Park

I visited Double O Arch in June 2013, and I was pleased by the lack of crowds on the trail once you got past the crowded trailhead, Get there early as parking is a pain, but once you get parked and hike past Landscape Arch, the crowds thin significantly and its actually a wonderful hike. I wouldn't call it a "must-see" hike if you have limited time at Arches, but if you have a few days, definitely check it out.
