The arch itself is pretty cool, but the journey there and the surrounding scenery makes it even better. I found it hard to get a good angle, but then again I was using my phone. This area is the gateway to Dark Angel, and the...More

This hike is easy, but becomes challenging in the midst of summer. At times it is hard to find the cairns marking the trail, but walking the tops of the sandstone fins is fun.

We had done Delicate Arch just gone sunrise to beat the heat but were up for another hike afterwards and so decided to give Double O a go especially as you get to see Landscape Arch en route and can easily detour to see Partition...More

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

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
