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.

Worth the hike!

This was a fun hike, albeit a windy one! Like the post said, the trail can be hard to follow at times. In particular, there is one spot near the end where you might think you need to jump down from the sandstone trail...don't! Turn right and continue walking along the sandstone. And hold on to your hat! (Literally, my friend's blew away and we never found it!)

Do this hike!

Hiking up the stone fin to get to Double O Arch may give those that are afraid of heights some butterflies, but don't let that stop you from completing this hike as the effort is well worth the reward! Double O is one of the most spectacular arches in the park and is truly a sight to behold.
