Super fun and challenging with amazing views, but the lack of signage or even cairns after the basin was awful. I was lost for 2 hours, scrambling up rocks I definitely shouldn't have been.

My wife and I did this loop over the weekend. The parking lot was crowded, but due to the 9 miles of loop, we really didn’t run into anyone else, only at the look out and then on the boulders. One of the best features of this hike was all the lady bugs at the top- we came across a tree covered in what seemed like a million. We went counter clockwise, and enjoyed the boulders near the end of our hike.

Fun trail with a great payoff at the end. About 4 miles RT. Have to scramble up a little at the end. Not siuitae for young kids or dogs in my opinion. First mile out is hot with little shade.

Absolutely worth it. Parked further away, and had a nice long walk before reaching the "climb" upwards.

Worth the short, quad busting ascent, and there aren't too many better places to finish in Sedona if you're looking for a great view.

Amazing bike and hiking

Hike was far more difficult than anticipated. we should have stayed on the peavine trail for the majority of the trail, but unfortunately most of our hike was through the rugged rocky portion of the trail. it was far too hot and difficult for the hikers in our group. Got to be treacherous as we got overheated, worn out and low on water. Thankfully we all made it out, but took over 4 hours, was over 5 miles an we were pretty worn out. Be sure you know where you are on the trail... stay on peavine if your fitness level isn't up for this level of challenge.

$5 cash fee FYI...
Great views... came during Monsoon season and was to watch a storm roll in. On the hike wild boar and deer...
Challenging yet enjoyable!!

Decent hike, super congested. Views are great but better ones can be found in Sedona

My kids 7 & 10 loved it, as did the adults. It’s a little intimidating at the end, but worth it! He most challenging part is the last 1/4 mile so even if you think you can’t make it, keep going!

Favorite hike in Sedona with breathtaking views at the end. Worth it to take a high clearance 4x4 to avoid the additional walk from the parking lot to the trailhead which is easy, but rocky and somewhat boring. Fairly easy for most of the hike until the scramble to the top which requires some pretty fun climbing to the summit.

Highly recommend this beautiful hike.

Had a wonderful day exploring Sedona, including a hike up to Devil's Bridge. Absolutely breathtaking views!

Definitely worth the views at the end. I can get vertigo with heights and steep elevations. I almost didn't make it to the top because there is a steep rocky scramble just before you reach the bridge but a lot of people of the trail encouraged me and helped me through. Glad I did the whole thing! There are a couple of great lookouts on the way up to stop and rest. The trail signs recommend you bring 1 gallon of water, I had about 70oz and drank every drop in the heat during May. No bathrooms on the trail of course but you'll sweat it out anyway! Bathrooms are available at the parking lot. There are a couple of trails that can all lead to Devil's bridge so just be sure to remember which way you came/went. I think most of the trails lead back to the same parking lot so if all else fails just walk the ORV path back and you'll find the parking lot.

absolutely loved this Trail. A little more traffic than I thought it would have especially in July. Make sure you have plenty of water -there is no reliable water on the trail. I repeat- bring plenty of water, a cover for your head, and long sleeves. don't feel like I need to say it but make sure you bring sunscreen. The trail is pretty easy to follow there's one place within a mile up, go to your right although theTrail looks like it should go on the left-- that's the only hiccup

Devils Bridge Trail was worth the hike! It was easy to find. Google maps will lead you to the Devil Bridge Parking Lot where passenger vehicles must park. There is a road that goes to the trailhead but it is only for jeeps and buggies and other vehicle s similar to that. There is a parking lot and it was free and a few spaces when we arrived around 2pm. Not many people were there the day we went which was Thursday a weekday. The trail does not start at the parking lot. There is a dirt road which must be taken in order to reach the trailhead. This road is not difficult. It is flat and very rocky but doable. The trail head for Devils Bridge will be clearly marked. I would say 70% of the hike up is easy to moderate level. It is a slight incline with lots of rocks. Just before the bridge the trail is moderately difficult. There will be stair-like rocks that take you all the way to the Bridge. Be careful on these rocks because the sand is fine therefore making the rocks slippery. I am 21 and have not exercised in a year and am scared of heights however this trail was easier than expected and shorter than expected. We went in August so the weather was nice with partially cloudy and partially sunny. Brings lots of water. I went with four people and we each drank 3 16oz bottles.

I was extremely nervous to take this hike because of some extreme reviews. However if you are in good health and good spirit then this hike is definitely a must do! I enjoyed it and the views were worth the climb!

Hiked Devil's Bridge this morning and the views are amazing! I drove to the parking area with my Subaru Outback and it was bumpier and more steep than I anticipated, I would recommend a higher clearance vehicle. Like others have mentioned get there in the morning to avoid the crowd and heat!

This is my favorite hike in the valley. It is a good challenge and you can also backpack on top flatiron.

I did it today, it’s really nice but bring a lot of water with you

The view at the end his so nice, it was the best hike of my life !!!!

Love this hike. The views are worth it. Only downside is how busy it is at the top. People will stand in line to have their solo moment on the bridge and literally just make people wait until their 50 spread photo shoot is over. Unless you're like me and you walk across the bridge to sit at the end of it, out of their picture. Sorry, not sorry.

Outstanding hike. End view worth the “stairs”. If you can hike Piestewa in Phoenix you can easily do this.

You think you’re at the top. You in fact are not.

Fantastic trail. Remember to stay night over in your sleeping bag

Hard to imagine the views in Sedona getting much better than this. Easy to find the trailhead - just follow the rough dirt 'road' that is accessible only by high-clearance SUVs.

It's a rather easy walk to the vertical portion, and there is some minor scrambling to reach the top. So many trails in Sedona - we picked this one because of the uniqueness, and were rewarded with throngs of people just like us: the trail can be crowded and noisy.

Great moderate hike with great views from the top.

I had an enjoyable time out on the trail, but found that it really doesnt skirt along the lake as much as I wanted. The lake is so beautiful that I couldnt help but walk off the trail up to the lake for more photos. I set out to do the entire loop, but managed instead to have zig zagged about 6 miles and was barely a third of the way around the lake, so I ended up having to turn back and walked another 2.5 miles back to my starting point because my water wouldnt have made the whole loop at the rate I went. The dots get hard to follow, Im not sure if maybe the trail is more obvious to others, but I found myself frustrated at a few points when I couldn't figure out which way I should go and it was another 15 feet to the next dot. Particularly by the bottom of the dam where it gets really grassy and green, I did a lot of circling and back tracking. I did have to get on all 4s to climb up and down several times, which isn't usually what I expect on a moderate trail. That being said, I guess if you stick exclusively to the trail and dont zig zag on and off the trail or end up on the side trails, it'll be the hike it says it is, but I found this trail to be at the upper limits of my physical ability as a 24 year old female who is by no means a couch potato, but doesnt exactly make it to the gym all 3 times per week.

Great workout! Love the elevation gain and the remarkable scenery from the trail. at top is only a hundred and eighty degree visibility. Brush and trees cover the top facing Sedona but you can see Thunder Mountain Through the trees if you work at it and scrape your legs up in the brush.

What a great hike! We went counterclockwise up the trail and had shad for the majority of the hike! Beautiful views looking out over White Spar! We weighed down some backpacks and it made the hike so much more challenging!!

The first 3/4 of the hike is easy. The last quarter is steep a considerably more difficult. Getting to the bridge is well worth it. Beautiful views throughout the entire hike but the last view was unbelievable. Highly recommend checking this off your bucket list!
