The hike to Double Arch is short and easy. Tucked into a sweeping sandstone amphitheater, this arch is one of the most unusual in Arches National Park. The Double Arch Trail is an easy hike on a sandy trail to twin arches that span a wide amphitheater. Combine this short hike with The Windows Trail for a spectacular look at some of the park’s largest arches.

Start at the trailhead on the right side of the parking area.
Interpretative signs explain how Double Arch formed and detail the trail. The wide dirt trail heads northwest, descending into a sandy wash. Double Arch is directly ahead on the south side of Elephant Butte, the 5,653-foot high point of Arches National Park.

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.
