This interesting arch is located in Organ Pipe Cactus National
Monument in southwestern Arizona. See Ajo Frog Eye Arch.
Drive the 9.1 miles to Arch Canyon on the Loop Road. The arch
is visible before reaching the Arch Canyon car park. Park and
hike up the established trail in Arch Canyon. Just short of a
mile, the official trail ends and a rocky and steep route
continues. Circle around behind the arch as you climb up above
it. Near where the route seems to dead-end at a cliff, look to the
right- this is the lumpy fin containing the double window. Before
dropping down to the level of the arch, poke into the corner near
this fin and find Ajo Window No. 2, qv, part of which you may have
seen on your route up. Slip through Window No. 2, take the
requisite photos, then backtrack a few hundred feet to a large
juniper, and drop down and contour over and through Ajo Double
Window where the best photos can be taken from the other side.
Itís about 2 miles and 1500 ft. up to the windows. UTM
