Double Arch

5.0Natural archesScenic views

Double Arch is another beautiful arch in the park. This impressive double arch is formed by two parallel arches that share a common end. The larger arch has a span of 144 feet and a height of 112 feet, making it one of the largest arches in the park.

Double Arch is accessible via a short, easy trail from the parking lot. The trail leads you to the base of the arches where you can admire their impressive size and take pictures. The arches were formed by erosion from water and ice, as well as from the stresses of gravity and weathering.

You can also explore the area around the arches. Many people enjoy climbing on the sandstone formations. Double Arch is especially beautiful at sunrise and sunset when the colors of the sandstone formations are at their most vibrant.
