Beautiful scenic walk by the river in the canyon. Can go as far as you’d like and still have a great time.

Great trail, not too difficult & has some great sights.

Amazing trail for those more active and fit. If you’re scared of heights, this will thrill you toward the end. It starts off really easy and then out of no where you’re climbing huge steps to the top that are steep.. also, get there early.. we arrived at 7:10 and when we came back down a little after 9am it gets extremely busy, people waiting around for others to leave and people parking all the way down to the main entrance on the Main Street. Definitely a good work out for arms, legs, and good cardio. Great hike and views! Well worth the body aches

Did not find it worth the hype, but pretty. water crossings mid-calve deep. Feet are swollen and angry from being soaked, in morning chilly temps.

This was a beautiful hike. HOWEVER, before reaching the devils bridge there’s a very steep climb on rocks. VERY SCARY! I did it but I wouldn’t do it again.

Beautiful view ! Start early to beat the crowd and watch the sunrise .

Amazing views

My wife and I hiked about 3/4ths before we turned around due to darkness. Nice hike through St. John’s College and the woods. We did get high to see a nice overlook. Definitely would hike again.

Easy trail with a bit of climb at the end. Beautiful views. Take the trail and let the vehicles take the road.

Loved it

Probably one of my favorite short hikes I’ve done. The views are beautiful the entire time and constantly changing. Personally would probably rank this hike as easy, though the last sprint to the top is a decently steep incline.

First time to the Grand Canyon and the views were gorgeous! Definitely would recommend microspikes for the trail right now, as it was pretty packed with snow. Took about 3hrs round trip for me to get to the three mile house and back. Stopped quite a few times on the way back up to rest + enjoy the views.

very easy hike worth it beautiful view

Crowded on the weekends but still a beautiful hike with some great views! Worth it to stop and take some pictures st some of the viewpoints. Plan to wait in a short line to get your picture on the bridge if it is crowded!

Beautiful trail with many hops over the creek. I did this trail during winter and was a bit icy.

I would suggest not bringing dogs if you plan on going out on the natural bridge.

Perfect weather. The trail was pretty well documented. It was crowded, but it wasn’t your average in and out hike. There were multiple view points. A thing to watch out for is the off roading vehicles.

Great hike. Was busy on the Saturday after New Years. Lots of snow and compact snow/ice on the top half and muddy in the lower half. Crowded. Great views and well worth it.

Amazing trail with amazing views!

Great hike that can be incredibly crowded. We went off season and it was as still quite busy. I would only do again if taking someone who hadn’t seen it before or if there were very few vehicles at the TH. Beautiful views throughout the hike.

Kind of fucking hard. That said I’m glad I made it to the top and I’m glad I made it to the bottom. Great views from the top and Minnie great views on the way. That said I’m glad I made it back. You don’t think

Was a bit icey yesterday but still so beautiful and a nice hike :)

Very cool hike and not too difficult. Wild not recommended walking along the road because it can get dusty with cars driving on it. Plus, the hike is scenic.

I took Coke’s suggestion and it did not disappoint. Took mescal, chuck wagon trail that lead into devils bridge trail. As I pulled into the trailhead parking lot the sun was just rising. It was peaceful and quiet the entire time. As the sun rose at the beginning of my hike hot air balloons not too far off in the distance began to ascend. It was pretty stunning and just added more to the hike. Didn’t see a single soul until I made it to the bridge or arch...and with that there were only a few nice souls up there. Had a great time talking with them. One even offered to take a picture of me and my pup on the arch/bridge. Overall amazing experience if you do it at the right time and you hike the right trails.

Beautiful views from the ground of the rock formations and canyon. The trail end does not have any Wow factor and the views are consistent along the whole trail. We did it in the winter and spring or summer might be more fun with the creek crossings and blooming wildlife. I would recommend this trail as a sight seeing activity rather than a trail hike. Good to go in 1 mile and out or for an easy day walk.

Did this a while back during the summer and loved it! Such beautiful views and unique rock formations! Would definitely go back if I’m ever in this area again!!

This hike was incredible! We parked at the dry creek vista, although I think our Nissan Frontier would have made it down the road just fine, it was a rental and the walk down the road was very very scenic and I am glad we walked it. My husband and I each carried one kid and they had a nap while we enjoyed the red rocks that surround you on this trail! We got to the trailhead at about 820 and got one of the last spots in the parking lot, and by the time we finished at 1140 the lot was full and the roads were also packed with cars. I think the early start in essential because we even had time up at the bridge where no one was on it and there was no hurry or line up for pictures. Everyone was just sitting enjoying snacks and the views. Worth every second!

We did this trail yesterday. A group on their way up said it took them 5 hours to do, which was a little daunting to us at first. The descent down was a breeze. It's quite snowy, and given the snow storm that just came through today, cramp ons were/are highly advised for this. We are mountain hikers, so hiking the descent first was very abnormal to us. It was such a cool experience. The hike back up was incredibly challenging, but it was worth it!
