The Jeeps are annoying, but the views are spectacular. Fairly easy hike, and like others I recommend climbing up via Twin Buttes and High on the Hog trails.

Spectacular!

Best workout!!

Beautiful little hike. Came across a few people but otherwise had the trail mostly to ourselves.

This is a phenomenal trail for one that is rated easy: incredible views within the first mile and very little elevation gain. If you have just one hour in Sedona this is the trail for you. Less than 3 minutes from Rte 179. We had come out of the Grand Canyon the day before and our legs were shot - this was the perfect easy trail to still get a taste of Sedona.

The only downside: the perfect solitude and quiet was obliterated first by a pink Jeep and then by a band of ATVs . Would have been a 5 star without that

Crappy trail. We enjoyed the hike but I'm not convinced you can follow this trail. We were three experienced hikers who got off this trail a few times and ended up off the trail before turning around and returning. The only highlight was coming off the trail and diverting down along the edge of the canyon on the way back.

Also, really ticked that the visitors center is behind a paid entrance.

Did the loop in 2 hours, with my family. Managed a little scramble up the Bell Rock :)
Started at 1PM and still was a pleasant hike. Got lucky!
Fantastic vistas of Sedona, all the way.
Will do this again next season.

Amazing red rock views! As Carrie C mentioned, DO NOT do the loop as shown. It has you returning on the Jeep road, which is usually busy with vehicles. If you're looking for a loop, return via High on the Hog and Twin Buttes. Really recommend the short side trail to Submarine Rock. Easy to summit and great trail. Also mushroom rock, just before you get to chicken point. Broken Arrow is often crowded with people and Jeeps but well worth it.

Well marked trail. Be aware of mountain bikers who are generally very considerate. Lots of options to branch off to Submarine rock, Twin Buttes, and others.

Amazing views. Inclines kick your butt a little bit but the views on the top are worth it.

It’s the Grand Canyon! Bright Angel is one of the more heavily trafficked trails into the canyon. Once you are about two miles in the crowds thin and you can really indulge in what the canyon offers. See you at Phantom Ranch!

Loved this trail. My first time to the Grand Canyon and this is part of one bigger trail down to the bottom that apparently takes days. I was a little nervous about the steep sides and felt nervous going down so walked slow. But the trail is pretty wide and using my walking sticks on way up was able to go fast and felt strong. Started too late in the day though so only did part of it. Go early to Grand Canyon or you might not be able to do the whole trial. Recommend starting at 8 or 9 at latest!

Amazing view at the top, best trail we have done as far as diverse scenery. Will definitely do this one again but will do the Devils Playground turnoff.

We definitely were not in shape for this one. But we took our time and made it to the top and back out. We they say steep and gravely, they mean it. It is all desert, so not a lot to look at. But I highly recommend hiking it if you get a chance.

Did the whole hike in my record 2 hours and 14 minutes.Not a hard hike but if your out of shape you will have trouble.I'm not in a way a fit person,but I've done tons of hikes to able to pull something like this off.

Unbelievable rock formations! Easy valley hike until you get to the base of the Crags. But worth every step!

Great hike! Did get steep at some parts but the view at the top is amazing. You must go all the way to the top —you won’t regret it!

I gone down 2 hours and 45 min., and up 3 hours and 27 min.
It was very hard but perfectly flow feeling.

I made a quick decision while in Las Vegas to hike this trail. I read over the description but not that carefully. Its steep and difficult. I made it to the second saddle and decided to turn back because I didn't plan on two more hours. The trail is a road believe it or not. (I would not want to be driving any vehicle on that road). I'll be back in March to hike the whole thing. The views are incredible and as hard as it is, its exhilarating to hike a steep trail. Even making it to the second saddle is worth it if you don't want to hike the whole thing. The gravel is loose and its almost harder going down. Be careful. Like any hike start early.

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.

The reward at the end of this hike is so worth it. You get a 360 degree view! Breathtaking! The hike is moderate but if your not use to the altitude there are small spots that can be difficult. Rest take your time, enjoy the quiet and beauty along the way.

Beautiful hike!

Was a great hike
Very crowded the first few miles but then the crowds thin out the deeper you go , around the 3 mile mark
I disagree with a lot of. Reviews here about it’s difficulty , I exercise but am by no means in great condition and found the hike relatively easy
Just enjoy you’re surroundings and take it all in , the miles will pass by before you know it !!
Enjoy

great trail. great views

#twoenthusiasticthumbsup! start early and enjoy the views and a lunch at the top.
