Enjoyed this hike, but wished I wore jeans. Got lots of scrapes from the brush you have to go through to get there. The view from the aches was awesome.

On February 13, 2007, two of us used HikeArizona information to go to Double Barreled Arch. We parked at the site and walked north to the interesting formation. Earlier, I had been to this arch from the north. That path involves a .8 of a mile each way along a fence. About 1.5 miles north of the 1100 exit from 1065, by the corral, is the major access to the top of the Paria Plateau. About one mile to the east of 1065 (House Rock Valley Road) you cross a cattle guard at a fence line. Park as far south on the fence line road as your vehicle allows. Then walk south, crossing the fence to the west when convenient, and continue to this arch which is named House Rock Valley Arch by the National Arches and Bridge Society. It is very photogenic.

First exploration of the arch(es) for me. Real neat quick hike - surprised I hadn't noticed them before.
