This is my first time hiking camelback Mountain! I’m disabled and it was brutal! I made it 50 or so feet from the top. But didn’t feel safe scaling the rocks to the top. I’d be willing to try the echo canyon trail, I’m told it has more support. It’s definitely a challenge both physically and mentally. The energy of the mountain is definitely different! It’s super crowded! I’m still wrapping my mind around it

Awesome!!!! loved it! we hiked from chuckwagon up. Only moderate area is the last 1/4 mile up to the bridge. We would definately do this hike again. Breathtakingly beautiful!

The views are awesome!
Good challenge, but really crowded and people don’t yield:(

Stunning formation. Unique, must do hike.

Great, quick hike! Not as long as noted on the app. Some challenging spots, but otherwise pretty easy. Beware for the people doing dangerous yoga poses on the bridge...risking life’s for the gram.

Majestic views!!! It really delivers.

Too many tourist.

Great trail it gradually gets harder closer to the top

We loved this hike! For all those that commented the road to the trail was boring ... why didn’t you take the chuck wagon trail option! It added some distance but was beautiful and scenic way to get to the devils bridge trail. Easy moderate addition. The trail to the bridge was perfectly challenging with some steep boldered spots. I am afraid of heights but I eventually ventured out onto the bridge itself. What a spectacular spot!

Beautiful scenery! Very short walk small hill at the beginning. Took less than an hour to walk there take pictures and walk back.

Hiked Camelback in Feb 2018. Great workout. Fun and challenging climb. Beautiful view at the top.

Excellent hike. Not too strenuous.

I would rate this between 3 & 4 stars. The setting is amazing, and the arch is very cool... but the popularity of this hike, and obnoxious selfie hogs on the arch really make it a lot less enjoyable. Oh yeah, and the toilet paper and human poop at the trailhead. LEAVE NO TRACE, PEOPLE. Dig a hole (with a rock or stick) if you need to take a dump when you’re outdoors!!!!!! And if you pee, just take your toilet paper with you, it’s not that complicated! This trail would be 5 stars if it weren’t for the people that visit it.

The best part of this hike was driving our friends 4x4 van to the actual trailhead!!! So much fun driving on the rough road, and getting to the good part of the hike in style!

I thought going on a Monday would have us skip the crowds, but this trail was still SUPER busy. We much preferred our time on lesser known trails in Sedona.

Had a blast, but saw two young ladies who drove their rental crossover into a ditch, they were still there on my way back out, waiting on a wrecker. So if you don’t have experience driving off-road please just hike to the trailhead

Very short hike in. Visited in the off season, and went for the sunset. It was still very busy, so get there well in advance. Take a blanket so you can sit along the edge and hang out.

One tough hike - even though rained a ton yesterday not too much mud. Going up is tough but not many people - when get to the top use AllTrails bc there is a ton of other unmarked trails. Coming down tough on knees and a lot more people

Hiked it today. Santa was at the top giving out candy canes. Fun hike! Watch for blue dots so you can stay on the trail

Great trail and views! This trail is exactly what hiking is about. This is a must if you visit Sedona. The Bridge is much smaller when you are standing on top of it. Take plenty of water but there are numerous spots for rest and shade. Free to park, if you find a spot. I will hike this trail again.

Hiked this side november 2017, it’s hard to find a parking space since you have to park on the roadside. To get to the summit we had to scramble and cling on some parts, but if you not comfortable going all the way to the summit, it’s alright, you can still see a great view around, afterall, there is the echo trail on the other side

A nice hike to wrap up November. If you don’t have a vehicle with high ground clearance, you’ll have to walk an extra mile or so each way down a road, which proved to be pretty soupy on the rainy day we chose to hike it. Aside from that it’s a fairly short hike with the majority of the elevation gain being in the last few hundred yards. Beautiful view from the bridge and it is much wider than it looks before you step out onto it. Your mom might be a bit hesitant to brave the bridge but just tell her to “do it for the ‘gram,” as my wife always says. She’ll be glad she did.

Breath taking both figuratively and literally.

Fantastic walk. Great view of the city. Beautiful desert plants and scenery. Very steep in places.

Nice view good trail

Great fun and short. Getting down was a hoot.

Oct 6 2018- we started at about 650 am. Parking was fine. It was a short easy hike with lots of other people. Beautiful scenery and views of horseshoe bend. We were done in a little under an hour, with time for lots of pictures.

Hiked on 12/5/18 - It's pretty easy, only a 620' elevation gain (Source: Flagstaff Trails Map) from the parking lot to the top of the loop (where the Mt.Elden trail T's off) so I hike the Loop clockwise, then counterclockwise.
I've now hiked the Double Loop 68 times, Humphreys Peak 4 times, Mt Elden 85 times, O'Leary Peak 51 times, Bill Williams Mt 5 times, Kendrick Peak 7 times, Lockett Meadows-Inner Basin trail hikes 5 times, Sandy Seep to Heart Trail to Mt Elden and back 2 times. Also a bunch of Caves Crater hikes.
I never really hiked much before I moved to Flagstaff (August of 2013) I spend @4 months out of every year in the Altered

Absolutely beautiful views of the surrounding landscape. We explored the area to the left of the end of trail sign. This hike was worth the scrambling.

Go early. Like the minute the sun rises and you won’t have an issue parking or with crowds. Definitely worth it.

Loved this hike. A must at sunset.

Short but challenging technical hike with a few rock scramble areas. Views are worth the climb!
