Arches National Park: A Walk in the Devils Garden – Double O Arch


Wander the hot and dusty trails of the Devils Garden in Arches National Park, Utah and you will be well rewarded with spectacular views. For me the ultimate reward after a thirsty hike on a very hot day along the Primitive Trail, which features amazing scenery accompanied with narrow ledges and rocky climbing, was to see the Double O Arch (6.8 km / 4.2 mile round trip). When you first see the arch, you cannot help but be impressed, it is quite a sight!
