Lovely walk through the trees with shade. Very busy though. Go early and avoid weekends

Did a training run with my base pack. 2 hour round trip, started around 12:39PM. Trail was clean and shaded in areas. Bring water!!!!

Bring lots of water. It was very sunny when we went. Great views.

I would rate this hike as moderate due to the length and the steep scramble to the top.
The trail takes you through diverse terrain from desert to wooded forest.
Depending on the time of year, you should leave early. We left around 8:30A, (September 15) and by the time we completed the hike, the temp was 92F.

Beautiful scenic trail. I started at the mezcal trail head because the main trail head was way to crowded. It was a longer hike but well worth it.

beautiful trail .nice picture's kinda Rocky but do able.

The trail is beautiful! Bring waterproof shoes or shoes you dont mind getting wet. Take an extra pair of socks too just in case they get wet. Love the creek at the end, it was fun to take off your boots and walk in the creek.
Parking is horrible at times. You might have to park right off the street.

An easy walk with closer view of red rock

Great views. Most of the trail is shaded and relatively level so it was a nice change of pace from some of the other trails near Sedona. The view at the end was well worth the 3 mile hike in

This is a beautiful trail. I went with my mom on my birthday and there was a lot of people hiking and waiting to take pictures on the trail but it was well worth it.

This is a beautiful trail with amazing views of the lake. This is a nice trail because there is very few people on the trail.

It’s a short climb to a picturesque bridge with an amazing valley back drop. Truly one of my favorites!

Beautiful trail. Easy going, but long enough for a good workout. Handful of really nice stream crossings and seems to get more dense and interesting the farther you go. Great for someone needing inspiration to finish a hike like myself. Ha!

If you want to avoid the Jeep trail and blowing dust use the Chuckwagon trail and park at the Mescal Trail Head parking. That will take you on about a 5 mile hike to Devils Bridge and back. If you are looking for a longer hike. Park a little farther down the road at the Chuckwagon trail head. (Across the street) and take the Chuckwagon trail in. That way. That hike had to be closer to 8 or 9 miles. But Chuckwagon is a nice hike in the trees frequented mostly by mtn bikers. As for the bridge there is nothing I can say that hasn’t been said 100 times. It is a spectacular view and you will meet plenty of new friends. It is tough at the top for us old folks with knees that don’t like bend the way they used to. But other than that it is a pretty easy climb.

Nice easy nature hike. Beautiful views of Canyon Formations.

Loved this hike as it has something for everyone. a little history at the trail start then beautiful creek crossings, shaded trail, gorgeous canyon. I'm not sure I would rate it as easy given some of the trail includes climbing/walking over boulders and navigating stream crossings and the ultimate length. It is possible for sure but I know my parents couldnt do this hike. Well worth it. we took about 32 ounces of water each and I would have appreciated more. It took us about 4.5 hours with some stops for pictures and snack time. Get there early to get a parking spot in the lot or you will have to park along the highway about .25 mile away on the highway! Enjoy!

This trail is great for kids. Took my 6 yr old there and he was entertained the entire time. The rock structures are really fun (tunnels, sliding rocks, ...). We did make it a day-long picnic trip though since it is pretty long (well, with a 6 yr old ...).
Highly recommanded (but not in summer !)

Got to the trailhead at 6, reached the cave by around 7:40 with a couple breaks. We started from the second/further lot. Views were AMAZING at sunrise. Worth it to get there early because you are shaded almost the whole time coming up! Can be slipper coming down, steeper than expected. Cave is super cool. Trail is decently marked.

Loved it!!!

Gorgeous the whole way. Put our feet in the cool water at the end, which felt amazing—next time will bring water shoes to hike up the creek at the end. Doable for all ages, though on the long side for young ones—took us 4 hours with a stop at the end for snacking and foot dipping. Nicely shaded most of the way! Stopped at Indian gardens for lunch on the way out, highly recommend !!

great trail. use sun protection

did this hike on August 4th. The river that you cross several times had rocks strategically placed for crossing. however at the end of the trail you can wade the river farther to get to a waterfall (it was only a trickle for us.) we did set up a hammock for a while in the shade about half way down the river before turning around and heading back. I went through 2 Gatorades and 4 water bottles in total. definitely bring plenty of water!! also if you want to wade the river bring extra shoes or sock. or bring water shoes. we did it barefoot but I had to be Very careful of footing as it was either slippery or sharp rocks.
