Hiking is a way of Life Map

Such a great urban trail

Beautiful. You need a 4x4 to get to the devil’s bridge trailhead. The road is super rocky and unpaved—I do not recommend you try it. Instead, drive to the trailhead devils bridge trailhead as far as you can go. I put it into my GPS. you will see when the road becomes unpaved. Stop there and immediately to your left you’ll see a parking lot. Park there. Do the Chuck Wagon trail (marked as 3-strenuous on the trail map). Note it is NOT strenuous. I would classify it as easy. And the hike was gorgeous with beautiful views. Once you get to devil’s bridge trail, the views aren’t great until you get to the end. devil’s bridge trail is moderate, and the rock scramble to the top is moderate to strenuous. It took us 2.5 hours round trip including stopping for pix at the top. I note that to get back to the car, we did the route listed in this review— going along route 1–easy on the Jeep path. It was dusty and had jeeps on it and no views. So no views until you get onto devil’s bridge path. We saw a lot of people walking along it instead of taking chuck wagon. I totally recommend taking chuck wagon instead of the Jeep path!!! That was the best part of the hike. I recommend this hike. Not my favorite but fun and not too long.

paired this with tibbet knob.. totaled about 8 miles . went eith dog, he got a little scared after the bridge but had fun either way. great views all the way

This was a much easier hike than expected. The last quarter mile is the only section that could be considered moderate. The views throughout the hike are outstanding in the typical Sedona manner. The bridge itself is a fascinating sight, especially when viewed from the top staging area adjacent to the arch formation. There are much better hikes in Sedona, but this one is worth doing just to see the bridge. Try to go during a time when the crowds will be less, as there is little room at the bridge area and the final ascent is a very narrow trail.

Loved it

A nice hike but was quite crowded.

Fun trail, pretty cruiser - only two or three moderately strenuous sections. I'd say its borderline "Easy". We hiked during some rainy/snowy conditions which made it a bit more exciting. The bridge is pretty cool, not quite as tall or narrow as it may seem in pictures. Definitely a fun trail that the whole family can make it up, and provides beautiful views for sure, but if you're more experienced and looking for more of a challenge this might not do it for you.

Fantastic. I am in decently good shape and it was moderate to hard. It’s all uphill and a lot of rock scrambling. But views along the way and at the end are stunning. Took us 25 mins from the cathedral Rock trailhead to get to the top. Then it’ll be another 25 to get down. Everyone said to get here early because the trail is crowded and the two parking lots get full. So we got here at 8am in high season on a Thursday. The first lot was full but second lot was mostly empty. This was the perfect time to go because the trail wasn’t crowded at all and we had space to get up and enjoy the view and the weather was perfect (58 degrees). Definitely worth it!

Definitely a challenge. I have a major fear of heights and I decided to just do it. (Nike would be proud y’all). Had second thoughts halfway into it but it’s like a roller coaster: you really can’t go back. Crowds tend to keep you moving forward and it’s challenging on the chains. The views, however, were so so worth it.

Moral of the story: WORTH IT. Brave your fear of heights but also be careful.

hard but worth while!

Beautiful, as expected it was pretty crowded. If you wait out a few mins between groups it is a pretty good climb without dealing with back and forth traffic on the narrow path given. Definitely, invest in hiking shoes for this hike. A lot of crazy college kids who would jump and run the hike. Patience is key to enjoy the beautiful view at the top!!!

Love the trail and the view at the top.

pretty good, depending on where you park a good portion of the hike is like a fire road and kinda uninteresting. the views aren't as good as other hikes in the area but the photos on the bridge are cool. get there early, we finished around 8:15 and the parking lot was already starting to overflow.

great little hike with a cool view. at the top go to the left and up another rock scramble to find a more secluded area. get there early because it is going to be busy.

The views throughout the entire trail are impressive..as is everything in Zion. Go early to avoid the crowds.

Excellent trail and wonderful views along the whole route. If you’re looking for parking it is marked as Dry Creek trail at the main road. With that said parking at the trailhead is minimal but parking on the main road works and is definitely worth the views on this hike.

Amazing and Death Defying.

If your in Sedona AZ it’s a must hike


This trail is no secret, but it is everything it is hyped up to be and more. My friend and I did it as a spur on a longer overnight journey into Zion’s indescribably ethereal backcountry via the West Rim Trail, which I would highly recommend. There are beautiful views from the trail camps, and it really takes you through all of the classic Zion environments. The landing definitely slowed us down a bit thanks to the crowds. Walter’s Wiggles, the switchbacks on the initial climb up the canyon, are difficult, exposed and steep, but the spur up to Angel’s Landing itself is not as physically taxing as it is nerve-wracking—the trail gets to be an extremely narrow ridge at points, and you feel like a bighorn sheep! As everyone has mentioned, start at the very first light, if not earlier—that’s the best way in the desert, to beat the heat and the peeps. Nothing like jumping into the Virgin when you descend back into the valley!

This trail is very heavily trafficked trail that leads to the start of the lower narrows. It is a nice walk along the Virgin river but is built for the high traffic so you are walking on concrete or pavement most of the way up. We had great views of the waterfall on our hiking day because it has snowed the night before and the snow was melting.

Pretty easy hike, but a nice view and payoff. The earlier in the day you go the better since the view is westerly facing and afternoon sun will limit the quality of your photos.

Enjoyable hike, but crowed. Spectacular views. Rated as moderate but has sections with significant rock climbs. Used the Baldwin/Templeton routes to access the trail, added 2 miles to the hike. Avoided the crowded trail head problem.

Oh boy, I've done longer hikes with more elevation change, but the switchbacks here are one of the toughest stretches of trail I've found. Trail gets easier after that part though, as it's just being careful navigating the narrow parts with a bunch of people passing you. Definitely among the best day hikes I've completed; the view at the end is utterly worth it!

Great hike, but get their early. Limited parking and the trail gets crowded, particularly near the top. Last section is rocky and basically one way. Have to wait at several location for traffic to clear. Also have to wait for pics of the bridge. Everyone seems to want individual pic of friends/family atop the arch.

Awesome hike...only able to go about .25 miles in the river because of some rain but it was just stunning.

Starting at the trailhead, go right— this path will put you on the AT and it is a much smoother climb to the summit. If you loop it this way, it’s just short of 3 miles around.

Summit has great views around the valley. A little crowded on the weekend but not too terrible.

Well worth the hike. Will do it again when the weather is warmer.

Beautiful views. Great day hike! Just enough uphill to make it a little bit of a workout, but not bad. The rocks twist a little under the boots so have to watch your footing. It was a little of a busy trail...definitely not the busiest we have been on.

We hiked up the Cedar Run Trail which was strenuous for the entire way up (about 3 hours). This was a good trail to go up because there were a lot of smaller waterfalls and a steady stream. When we got to the top, we got a little turned around and accidentally went the wrong way. So make you’re reading your map carefully. We went down the White Oak Trail which was beautiful. The waterfalls were huge! Great photo opps. Trails were well kept even with the recent windstorm. The whole hike took us a little over 6 hours.
