This is an easy trail to Double Arch which is just amazing. Here you get to see two arches with the same starting point. The climb up to underneath of the arch is fun as well. This trail is 1.2 kms and doesn’t take long.

From the parking lot head towards the arches. Follow the well marked trail and in a little while the trail goes up the rock and beneath the first arch. The grip on the slick rock is excellent and it is a short climb. When done make your way back the way you came.

Directions:

Make your way to Arches National Park. From the entrance station make a right at the first 3 way intersection (15 kms) and then head 4 kms to the double arch parking lot. If there isn’t any parking here you can try parking at the windows section parking lot, since you just drove past it you will know what the parking vacancy is like.

Accommodations:

A lot of people hiking and biking in the MOAB area stay at condos managed by www.moabutahlodging.com, speak with Andrea. They offer a range of in town homes and condos.

It's a short walk (it can't be called a hike) to get to the arch, and you can go right up underneath it--it's enormous. In addition, the beautiful Windows and Turret Arch are a hop, skip, and a jump away. This area is hard to beat. Downside Lots of people, though not as many as at Delicate Arch. Hot in the summer.
