“A popular out-and-back when doing Auxier Ridge Trail #204 to Tunnel Ridge Road.”— Chris Chaney
You drop fast to the base of the massive cliff line and then run along beneath tower sandstone walls for most of the trail, passing under Double Arch before circling around the north end of the ridge and climbing up to come out right at the unique rock formation that this trail is named for.
The views of Auxier Ridge from the arch are amazing, and worth the trip out to Double Arch. Just make sure you save something for the climb out. Climbing up the stairs at the beginning is very difficult if you are tired or out of shape.
