Great hike, but don’t forget your raincoat like I did. Busy in front, but as you make the turn toward Courthouse it breaks off and your the only person walking, except the newlyweds walking hand in hand in the rain. Great Hike if your in the area

Although very popular, this is a very beautiful hike!! The views along the whole trail are spectacular. There are some slight changes in elevation here and there but nothing too difficult.

Incredibly beautiful with great photo ops along the way and especially in the bridge itself! Moderate level, took us a total of 2 hours from parking lot to trailhead to bridge and back. (It was also lightly raining so that may have affected our time).

Just over an hour up and down. the temperature was cool with a little rain so that probably helped a lot, I can't imagine how hot it must get when the temperature is high!
On the way down, we went left - Templeton to Baldwin Loop and it turned into an 11 km hike and a great day in the beautiful mountains of Sedona! highly recommend this hike!

Did this hike to the end of the trail - we are 50+ and probably only in average physical shape!
What a view, totally worth the huffing and puffing!
This is one of the most spectacular views and a great reward for your labor.
Just do it!

Got lost! Never made it! No idea why we couldn't find it. One day I hope to return and see it.

Great hike ! Beautiful views - moderate level

Great hike but not dog friendly unless you have a hardness. Our lab is a great hiker but steep slick rocks are impassable for dogs

Pretty straight forward hike. You can drive down dry creek rd to the trailhead if you want to shorten the hike and get more time for other things. Not strenuous. Very cool views at the end and of course you need to walk across the bridge. Rock/stairs at end can be slippery so be careful.

nice trail, lots of great views all along the trail plus variability in the terrain. takes longer than you think - the highest point you see from the trailhead is only half the distance and half the altitude of the mountain.

As good as it gets. Well worth the effort to the top. Strava clocked it at about 10.5 miles. Trail is well marked...it was covered in snow yesterday. Lots of it. Definitely wear sunblock. Drank about 2L of water. Bring salty snacks. Dress in layers... you'll go from cold to hot the entire hike. This hike won't disappoint...I'll be back again soon.

Beautiful hike with even better views! The trail was very busy when we went around 10:00 am. The trail was more difficult than I expected but worth it once you get to the bridge. There is some climbing involved but my dog didn’t have a problem with it.

Worthwhile hike. Couple in mid sixties, experienced hikers. We started at 7:30 am Saturday to beat crowds. We saw about 8 other hikers, all friendly.

The natural bridge is all that other reviewers have described. It is at least 8 feet wide at the narrowest and even those with vertigo should not worry. Just use common sense. We were back down to the trailhead by 9:30. The trail was getting very crowded by then.

We drove the VERY rocky road up from the highway. Our Subaru Outback handled it, but be careful that you have at least 8 inches ground clearance for your vehicle.

Well traveled trail, solid payoff and great morning hike

Great first day hike to do to warm the legs up. Easy to do for all levels. Hiking thru the tall pines is beautiful and at the end looking back thru the canyon viewing it from the top is a pretty view.

Great drive to the trail head in the JLU and the hike from there was about an hour round trip! Great views!!!

Outstanding hike & epic views. Be sure to set your intentions before your hike . Apparently the vortex energy balances oneself . We started at Crescent moon park . Approximately 8.1 miles . Not too difficult but be sure to wear a trail runner or a shoe with good tread to prevent slippage when climbing near the peak ! Sooooo fun !!!!!

Best hike I've ever been on

A must to see

Add this to your list, you won’t regret it! We arrived around 9:20am on a Wednesday and were able to find parking at the TH at Dry Creek. Took about 1 hr to get the the bridge. Relatively flat until you get close to the bridge about the last 10 minutes with extremely steep and vertical stone stairs to get up there. Once you are up the views are spectacular! When we got up there were only a few other and taking turns for pictures was easy. Started to get really crowded at the bridge around 11:00 and we headed back down. When we left there were a ton of cars parked out on the street as the parking lot was full. Highly recommend this one!!!

Pretty epic climb! My friend and I summited two weeks ago. It took a lot of physical strength and endurance, took us about 6 hours to the top and then another 5 back down at a very leisurely pace. We saw lots of people along the way, no wild life to speak of, amazing views thou once we got out of the forest and up to the saddle. Felt a little light headed at the top from high altitude but it wasn’t bad. Bring a lot of snacks, layers and wear excellent ankle support- the trail especially after saddle is very rocky. My iphone health app said we did 14 miles, climbed 200 stories and did 30,000 steps, holy moly!

• the trail is completely covered with snow (on 10/10). I started the hike at 9am and most of the snow was icy and slippery. When I made it to the ridge, it was difficult to locate the trail (had to watch for trail marker poles). On the way back, from 1 to 2pm, the snow was slushy as it began quickly melting
• the wind at the ridge was no joke, especially the last few hundred feet, forecast says it picked up to around 30mph.
• I completed the hike in around 5hrs, but this one is not a joke and involves stamina and knowing your body limits.

Amazing hike but difficult. We started on Baldwin Trailhead for about 30 minutes then about 45 minutes to the top of Cathedral. Amazing and worth the hike.

Beautiful hike!

glad we did it, it was beautiful

this is a hard trail and can be slippery if not wearing appropriate footwear. the hike is worth the effort as the views at the top are amazing!

beautiful hike with excellent views.

By far my favorite hike of the ones I have done in Sedona! It is hard in the sense of needing good foot wear because at one part you are essentially “rock climbing”... if able to go at sunset, it was absolutely breath taking! If you are a moderate to avid hiker, you can not pass this one up!

Wicked good day! We had a 70 year old grandad and a 5 year old niece taking pictures on the arch.
