Arches National Park is an amazing place to visit. I will admit, that next to Delicate Arch, Double Arch was my favorite. But there are so many amazing places to visit while you are there. We have shared many of our favorites already. You can read about Sand Dune Arch (my kids’ favorite), Park Avenue and Courthouse Towers, The Windows, Balanced Rock, and Delicate Arch.
Double Arch is located in the same area as The Windows. You can actually park in the parking lot and go one way to The Windows, and the other way to Double Arch. Neither is a very far walk. You will find a bathroom in the parking area. The picture below is a wide view of the double arch area. You can see Double Arch on the right side.
ABOUT DOUBLE ARCH
The trail to Double Arch (0.5 mi/0.8 km roundtrip) is a relatively flat, gravel-surfaced path that leads to the base of two huge arching spans. Double Arch is an impressive feature—the tallest (112 ft/34 m) and second-longest (144 ft/44 m) arch in the park. The glorious giant is also viewable from the parking area (without hiking) and may be wheelchair accessible with assistance.SOURCE
Something about these Arches just stole my heart. In the picture below you can REALLY see how truly big these arches are. The climb up to the “window” is fairly steep, so I wouldn’t suggest that for kids unless you do a lot of climbing and they are comfortable. The drop off on the other side is VERY STEEP so please keep your kids and yourself safe.
