WOW, lovely and impressive natural stone arch. Careful going up the last two stone stairways at the top, the steps are covered in dust making the slippery in places...have your hands free in case you start to fall. Don't forget the little side trail that heads back down under the Devil's Bridge, while maybe it is not as cool from below as seen from on top of it, it is worth checking out.

Great hike, worth the long walk to trail head, took about 2 hours total

on Devils Bridge Trail

Started this hike from the small Mescal TH parking lot. It’s a 30 min easy hike to the Devils Bridge TH and then another 20-30 mins to the top. I started at 7am and got back to my car at 9am. That includes time at the top taking pictures and soaking it all in. I also jogged back to my car most of the way. It’s not a hard hike at all but there are parts closer to the top where it’s steep. But if you’re nervous just go slow and pay attention to where your feet are.

best views hands down. brutal home tho

Great hike. Great view.

Third time to the top. Awesome trail, many birds and turkeys today.. felt weird to hike on a Tuesday but was so worth calling in sick to work today!! I feel awesome after this long hike!!

Great view!

Took my dog we had a tiny scare, of course some other dogs were off leash but were super friendly (my dog is not). There was water but the river is not active. Definitely go at an earlier time sun is blazing when you go back uphill to the trail head. Other than that loved it!

Enjoyed the trail Great Views great Swim for the kids Very Pet Friendly

Awesome hike, amazing views. Definitely worth it.

Incredibly beautiful views! Tons of people were hiking this trail, some folks were on bikes, some on horseback. As you get closer to the actual bridge, you will be hiking with a lot of other people. There was a huge line and a thirty minute wait just to walk over the bridge. Also dog owners beware. I saw a lot of dogs suffering from heat exhaustion. I would not bring my dogs on this trail. And if you must, bring lotssss of water for them to drink, and to wet them down.

It’s a very popular hike here and suitable for many levels of hikers. The falls are beautiful! Several water crossings which is always fun! Make a day out of it.

Hard! But a great hike. Beautiful scenery and a great sense of accomplishment

Excellent way to spend the day. Hike takes you through a canyon along a creek. Great views. Hiking time 3 hours - 14km from parking lot and back. Some areas are not marked well so keep your eye in the trail.

One of my favorites around here! The views are spectacular and it has a fair amount of elevation in a short distance but if you take your time, it’s worth the climb. Take a nice lunch and relax at the summit. Sabino Canyon in general never disappoints.

Spectacular hike with a variety of steep and very steep parts. This hike is a good workout and requires either loads of photo breaks or a strong heart.

Only thing we would do differently is go in via Chuckwagon trail instead of the road. Much of the road is dusty and traveled by jeeps and 4 wheelers. The bridge is definitely worth hiking to even though the last quarter of a mile is fairly steep and requires a little scrambling.

It was beautiful, a pretty easy walk/hike. Don't bring your dog unless you know they can handle it. There were a lot of people carrying small dogs.

We have hiked this twice. This trip reminded us this is a tough hike. Don't be deceived by the short distance. The middle portion is all steep rocky switchbacks up the front of the mountain… up about 800’ in ¾ mile. Very challenging. My Garmin showed hike at 6.1 miles starting at visitor center, with about 1800' elevation gain. Hot and no shade. I would not do this in the afternoon. Bring plenty of water. Not a busy hike so may have nice 360 views at the top all to yourself! As others have said ... don't stop until you get to the end of trail sign.

Relatively short and for the most part easy. There's one section getting near the top where you have to scramble up the rocks. There's also a side trail where you can view the arch from underneath which as worth the extra little walk. The trail was quite crowded so if I went again I would go during the week and even earlier in the morning

A great way to get up high quickly. The trail is pretty easy going, but currently suffers from an abundance of icy snow making things slippy!

This is one of the toughest hikes in the Catalinas. If you are afraid of heights and cliffs: many people have to turn back at one of a few sections that are bare rock, narrow, and along a drop-off. My hiking partner had to crawl and hands and knees the first time we did it. It's steep and there are quite a few areas where you need to haul yourself up over rocks. BUT it is so worth it! It's great cardio day, amazing views, the pines smell wonderful along the last mile on a warm day. Coming down takes about as long as going up (which is not true of most hikes). Agree with the others - start early because it will take all day. For a half day trip, go to the Linda Vista lookout which is about 3 miles up (watch for the intersection and take two rights).

Extremely hard but worth it for the views. When you feel like quitting just keep going and you’ll be so happy when you see the end of trail sign!

If you stick out a thumb and a bee you might get a free private pink Jeep tour from a local on the walk back :)

Hike this everytime we come to Tucson. Love it! Oh... and jump in the water at 7falls!

We took Chuck Wagon Trail there and back. We got there around 7:30am and easily found parking. Nice, easy hike most of the way. It was a little bit of a climb at the very end but nothing crazy and well worth it :)

This is an extremely popular hike and the parking lot stayed full so there was a lot of parking on the road. We drove our Jeep in on the wide, rocky path for about a quarter-mile and hiked in the rest. There are several, well setup steep steps which quickly add to the elevation of this hike but I overheard several folks say it is well worth the effort, and I certainly agree.

Some of the path is hardly marked so it's easy to get lost. However it was beautiful I highly recommend!
