Short Hike to Double Arch

0.5 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Scott Kranz

This area has the largest collection of Arches in the world, making this a great hike to not only explore double arch, but take in a few others as well.

The hike to Double Arch is a relatively flat and easy hike of 0.5 miles roundtrip. You can add this to the rest of the quick spots you may want to visit on your visit to Arches.
This arch is created by two arches that shares the same stone as the foundation for their outer legs. This arch was formed by downward water erosion as opposed to the more common side-to-side erosion.

The good news is that there's a fair amount of parking at the parking lot, because visitors also tend to park there to visit the Windows section of the park.

Unique and Magestic

This is definitely worth a stop along your drive through the park. Be sure to walk under the arches, they're a geological wonder!

Go Early In The Morning Or Late In The Evening

A nice and easy hike to the beautiful arches. We made the mistake of going in the middle of the day when it was most crowded. Because the hike is very easy, it's a main attraction in the park. Still beautiful, though!

Short And Beautiful.

Go sit under these two arches. Being under two towering rock features with the sun casting shadows on you is incredible. And the "hike" is super short so it would be silly to miss this arch during your visit to Arches National Park.
