A short walk to and under a spectacular arch. The short, mostly flat hike to Double Arch goes through scattered junipers and oaks. In the spring you might see Utah’s state flower, the sego lily, a large, single, cream-colored flower. The trail is well defined and easy to follow all the way. Along the way, off to your left, you can see the series of buttes called the Parade of Elephants.

beautiful area the hike to the arches is very short but well worth it it is mind boggling to look at in reality

Double arch is interesting because the two arches are set at a rather odd angle to each other, which is a little puzzling when you understand the geology of the area. There is also a nice view of the Windows from inside the arch.

A worthwhile arch to visit, considering the shortness of the trail.
