Double Arch is an incredibly intricate formation of arches at the Windows Section of Arches National Park. The Windows area has the largest concentration of natural arches in the entire world. There are so many attractions packed into such a small area such as this. The Parade of Elephants, Turret Arch, The Windows (AKA The Spectacles), Cove Arch, Ribbon Arch, Elephant Butte, and the Cove of Caves are all within a short distance of each other.
Double Arch takes its name because it consists of two arches that share the same stone as a foundation for both of their outer legs.
The Double Arch Trailhead is located at the north end of the circle at the far north of the parking lot for the Windows area. There are always parking space available here so after visiting the Windows Arches, you should drive the car here instead of hiking in the hot weather. The trail to Double Arch is easy and short (0.5 mile or 0.8 km round trip) with nice surrounding views. You are allowed to climb and explore everywhere beneath, through and surrounding of the arches (not on top of them though). Climbing at Arches is one of the most enjoyable and exciting activities.
