Description

This unique double arch is one of the most amazing rock formations in the park. The ease of access makes this a deservedly popular spot, so visit early or late to avoid the crowds. Early morning is thought to be the best time to photograph Double Arch for the best color. From the Double Arch parking area, take the nearly level Double Arch Trail to the end.

Short Walk: About 1/2-mile round trip on an easy, flat trail.

Family Friendly: Short, easy trail visits an amazing geologic formation that even the little ones will remember.
