I love this trail. It's very easy to go off and climb Bell Rock off around the side without a trail.
It gets crowded on the main trail so go early. We went around 8am on a Sunday and it was pretty empty. By about 10:30 when we left it was getting crowded.
Decent trails. Crowded and lots of mountain bikers.
Spectacular scenery but crowded. Would recommend finding other hikes in the area to hike.
easy and beautiful
Beautiful scenery but I ran out of time to climb Bell Rock.
Love this hike. I've walked around this trail and climbed up several times. I only made it half way up because we had a baby in tow, but my husband and some of my family climbed up as far as they could go and loved the views and challenge. The only negative is that there is no shade and it is not climbable in the heat of the summer in my opinion.
very pretty. trail around the actual rock is not really marked. Most people just free climb up the face of the rock. Got lost once venturing off the trail. Very hot no shade on this hike.
Red Rock Country is beautiful! The hiking here is mostly in the sun and quite hot. Not a hard hike though.
Great trail! We also did the courthouse loop and found that was a great scenic hike too, less traveled and very prettu
great network of trails located off the byway. red rock pass is needed to park ($5 daily and they have a kiosk at the parking lot). great views with options to break off onto adjacent trails. moderately crowded with half hikers half mountain bikers.
Great balanced hike.
Enjoyable hike with gorgeous views.
