The trail through Devil's Garden gets you to Double O Arch. There is a bit of mild exposure and a little elevation gain as you walk along the tops of fins with drop offs on either side of the trail. The trail is interesting and...More

My husband and I did this hike on a hot day in June. We started at 8:15 with temps around 80. By the time we finished at 12:30 it was 98 degrees. We underestimated the difficulty and time required to do this hike. We stopped...More

We hiked the entire Devil's Garden Loop returning via the Primitive Trail. Double O Arch was our lunch point, since we were able to find shade in the area. My least favorite arch on the Devil's Garden Loop but definitely still worth seeing and the...More

First things first, Devil's Garden Trail is not the easiest. So make sure you have enough water and that you are in good shape. There is a bit of climbing, and some rock scrambling. The trail is not so defined too, so you'll have to...More

Double O Arch is 4.8 mi/6.4 km roundtrip from the Devils Garden trailhead (out and back) and should take about 2-3 hours. The trail is rated difficult because it involves hiking on slickrock and scrambling on rock fins with steep dropoffs. Alternatively, you can go...More

It is not very long in terms of distance (approx 4 miles) but some of the terrain can be challenging for some. Along the way you see many other arches, including Landscape, Navajo, Partition, etc. The hike is worth for what you see along the...More

This arch is located at the far end of the Devils Garden loop. It is a good arch to visit but beware that people tend to hang out a while beneath it so it can be difficult to get photos without someone else in them....More

I loved this hike, the only thing I didn't like about it was that it is a little crowded. This hike is more strenuous than Delicate Arch. You will be scrambling up rocks a little bit and walking on rock fins that have very steep...More

You won't be disappointed if you make the trek to Double O Arch from Devils Garden trailhead. Once you get past Landscape Arch the crowds disappear, and the views get incredible along the trail. Once at Double O, to get that famous shot, you'll have...More
