Another Arches must do. Hike to Landscape Arch, itself worth the journey then another mile or so to the Double O. The trail to the DO is fun, hiking on top of a sandstone fin then down to the arch. If you enjoy photography, climb through the arch, up the ridge behind it just a bit and enjoy! Great photo... More

We went to hike the double O arch and then continued on to primitive trail. We were not planning on doing the whole loop but so glad we did. This was an awesome hike over arches thru canyons. Lots of little rock caves for the kids to climb into. We hiked it with our 8 year old and 11 year... More

My wife, two sons and I hiked Double O Arch this afternoon. It took us ~ 30 minutes to drive there from the entrance. The parking lot was crowded but we found a spot. They have bathrooms and a water fountain to fill up water bottles. The first half mile or so is very easy then there is a sign... More

In order to visit the Double O Arch, you will have to hike the primitive section of the Devil's Garden Trail. The hike is easy at first but will get more difficult. Most of the rest of this route is on the more adventurous side as you hve to walk in sand, climb the rock with narrow ledges, and at... More

This one is a little of work to get there, especially with some snow. That snow made the final little approach to Double O a little treacherous. Worth the effort to get there.

It's the perfect example of "it's about the journey, not the destination". While Double O Arches was a unique sight, my favorite part was the 2+ mile hike to get there!

This is a nice air of arches but there's quite a hike to get here and many arches that are easier to access. If you like hiking then enjoy the hike and the arch. If hiking isn't your thing then go see one nearer with the road.

I wanted to get to double-o arch. After mustering courage to go up the first "fin", the hike was easy to get to Partition and Navajo arches. A bit past there you encounter another "fin" to navigate so I turned back (and some guy gave me a hand to study my nerves going down the first "fin", which along with... More

First of all this hike is not for small children or people that have issues w/climbing or poor vision. To enjoy this hike to the fullest start early mornings a) to get a great parking space and b) to be able to do all the little side trails on this trail. And do the loop! This is the best trail...

This is the best hike in the park. Takes in several formations, including Landscape Arch, and gives you the opportunity to traverse the 'fins'. Seriously hot and carrying water is essential. Saw several maniacs struggling on without - they did not look good. Double O Arch is great - one of the best in the park - worthy of the... More
