I think it one of the largest arches in the park. Pretty impressive. Very short walk from the park and absolutely no shade. Take a bottle of water.

The Double Arch is a very large set of arches right next to the Windows arches. You can make an afternoon of seeing both, including Turret arch, but it will be take a little bit of hiking. But all 3 arches are well worth visiting.

The hike to the arch is a relatively flat and easy hike, although parking is often hard to find due to the popularity of the area). Awesome views, definitely worth the hike. Visit early morning before the main crowds hit.

If you start out early morning this is a brilliant hike through the park. The double o Arch is interesting and you can get some excellent photos through it. Don't stop there though, hike the whole loop.

Not easy to find a place to park here. It was a very busy area of the park. But its a short hike to this location. Its fun to see the arch from underneath.
