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...More

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 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...More

This walk is not for those who have physical difficulties, there are some rock stairs, boulders, and ridges that need to be traversed and watch for guide cairns in order to get to this arch. I found the hike exhilarating, but I'm also not afraid...More

Well worth the walk to Double O it might not have the views of Mesa Arch and Landscape Arches but it is cool how there are two basically on top of one another.
