Double Arch, at 112 feet, is the tallest arch in the park. At 144 feet in length, it's also the second-longest arch in the park. Luckily, this natural wonder is easy to reach. The half-mile trail to Double Arch is a relatively flat, gravel-surfaced path that leads directly from the parking lot to the attraction. For those with limited time, or mobility, this is a very accessible, not-to-miss sight.
This was a popular pit stop for many recent visitors thanks to the short trek to the arch. As is the case with other easy-to-reach sights in the park, Double Arch can get very crowded by midday, according to reviewers. Beat the heat and the crowds by visiting early in the morning. Photographers also suggest taking your time here to view the arch from all angles.
Double Arch, which is free to access with paid park admission, sits more than 10 miles northeast of the park entrance. There are restrooms at the parking lot. For more information on nearby hiking trails, visit the official NPS website.
