Double O Arch or Devils Garden Primitive Loop Arches in 360 Degrees
If you have a little bit of an Adventuresome Spirit, then this is a trail you will absolutely LOVE. It has is all. Great get your heart rate up challenges without much real danger, amazing views that will definitely WOW you, and 9 unique and amazing natural arches all in one hike (2 are trickier to find so most find only 7). It also is so interesting that it doesn't even feel that long even though it is 7.5 miles.
WALKING THE FINS!
This Devils Garden Primitive Loop is quite the adventure and not for the Faint of Heart, for there are 3 places on the trail where you have to Walk the Fin over to the next spot, and the fins really have drop offs on both sides of you. It sounds scarier than it really is, and I watch tons of kids to older adults all braving the Fins! It definitely shakes your nerves a little, but then you realize it is not that bad, and you feel pretty excited that you accomplished it! You definitely want shoes with good traction, and you don't want to do this hike if it was wet and slippery, but it is a way cool adventure otherwise!

The Devils Garden Primitive Loop is so so great for not only do you get an adventure of a lifetime, but in one trail you get to see 9 different Arches that are all very unique and beautiful. You do have to take the side trails off to see them, but they are all worth the journey. Here is a trail map to see all 9 arches.

I made it to 7 of the Arches. Check out all the arches below.
1st ARCH is LANDSCAPE ARCH
Landscape Arch is probably one of the most famous of the arches on this trail. This super thin arch is a marvel that it continues to stand strong among such opposition and admired for its strength even dealing with its frailties. May we be like this arch. The Lord knows we have weaknesses/frailties, and we were given them for a purpose to grow and become better. May we push ourselves to still be strong and be the best version of ourselves, yet not be overly hard on ourselves about our weaknesses. If you keep trying your best to be strong amidst your weaknesses/frailties, you'll find the Lord will help you overcome your weaknesses/frailties and hopefully you will see that the Lord will be looking down on you with pride that you are as beautiful in his eyes as this arch is to us.

If you enjoyed this hike, I think you would also LOVE
I love how Grand this Canyon feels because of the height of he canyon walls. I love the arch at the end. I also really enjoy crossing back and forth across the river.
Corona and Bow Tie Arch
Also an Epic Hike. Has that challenging sections that get your blood pumping from the challenge, but your not really in danger. The arches are amazing. The canyons are beautiful, and the trail is well marked. Just follow the green rectangles!
DING and DANG SLOT CANYON
Not a canyon to head into without a buddy or if you are not a level 4 hiker. This trail is tough, but you will never forget it if you conquer it.
I love this hike, for it is a less crowded Arches Hike. It is not hard in difficulty, but REALLY required you to have navigating tech, or to be very good at watching the Cairns, but sure feels awesome making it there!
Such an Unique amazing Place. Never seen anything like it before.
