The Double Arch trail (0.5 mi/0.8 km roundtrip) is a relatively flat, gravel-surfaced path which leads to the base of two huge arching spans. Double Arch is 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.
A trail climbs stairs to the upper parking lot and the Windows trailhead. Consider parking in one place and walking between the two lots, if you want to explore.
The parking lot at Double Arch regularly fill to capacity. Consider leaving and coming back at a later time if the lot is full – waiting for a spot can cause significant congestion. Avoid crowds (and the heat) by visiting in the early morning hours or late afternoon.
Visiting The Windows Section can be a thrilling and rewarding experience for visitors of all ages. Help protect the park by leaving no trace and staying on established trails.
