Here are eleven photos from the Devils Garden Trail in Utah's Arches National Park.

 

While iconic Delicate Arch may be the signature hiking destination in Arches National Park, this trail delivers outstanding views of much more of the park's incredible scenery. The trail passes a number of arches, some accessed via spur trails, so many hiking options are possible. The photos here represent a hike to Double O Arch and back, which is 5.5 miles (8.8 kilometers) round trip, including all the spurs to other arches.
