great views of the area. about two areas with steep elevation gain. there is a little network (3) of trails that can get a little confusing, so be sure to download the map. took us about 4 hours with time for pictures and resting. no reception in the parking lot, but spotty through out the trail.

We did it on October 19th 2018, there was snow on the trail so we had to use spikes. Since it was my first high altitude hike did the telescope peak in death valley day before to get acclimated. Trail is beautiful but you won't have lot of time to enjoy the views if u want to finish the hike on time. Started hike at 3:30am summited around 1 PM and finished it around 8:30pm. I carried 4 litter of water but hardly used 2 liters since I don't drink that much water on my hikes but would recommend carrying 4 liters. One of hiker from our team ran out of water ended up headind back since he couldn't find water on the trail.

This hike was pretty underwhelming. People are literally lined up before the bridge taking turns with pictures. Kind of took away from the beauty of it. For those with a fear of heights- the bridge looks scarier than it is. Walk up to it and you’ll see how much space there is to walk on it! Views are pretty! The spot is just too touristy.

Tourist crawl with amazing views.

A well spent day. Added a couple of side loops (intentionally). Weather was cold and drizzling but trail was in good condition.

This hike was fairly repetitive- it's a lot of rolling hillsides, with cows and wildlife along the way. I wouldn't do it on a hot day, on a foggy winter day it was perfect. There isn't a lot of shade. At the back end of the loop hike we encountered two coyotes on the trail. It was getting near sundown, and I was a little freaked out because I had a small terrier with me. One coyote was on the trail itself, and the other coyote I saw over a ridge playing with a baby calf. It was surreal. The trail itself was pretty flat and got more strenuous at the end with some elevation. Lots of cows, and moderate number of people. If you do the entire trail, it's roughly 3.5 hours of hiking, so start early.

Awesome!!!! loved it! we hiked from chuckwagon up. Only moderate area is the last 1/4 mile up to the bridge. We would definately do this hike again. Breathtakingly beautiful!

Stunning formation. Unique, must do hike.

Great, quick hike! Not as long as noted on the app. Some challenging spots, but otherwise pretty easy. Beware for the people doing dangerous yoga poses on the bridge...risking life’s for the gram.

Majestic views!!! It really delivers.

Best hike in the Bay Area. Good mix of ecosystems and wildlife, while providing a good workout through length and climb.

We loved this hike! For all those that commented the road to the trail was boring ... why didn’t you take the chuck wagon trail option! It added some distance but was beautiful and scenic way to get to the devils bridge trail. Easy moderate addition. The trail to the bridge was perfectly challenging with some steep boldered spots. I am afraid of heights but I eventually ventured out onto the bridge itself. What a spectacular spot!

This is my third time hiking in the area and each time I see something new. This is a great workout with stairs and a good mix of ascending/descending, all with a great view. This is also one of the shorter mileage hikes that features the ridge and the beach.

I would rate this between 3 & 4 stars. The setting is amazing, and the arch is very cool... but the popularity of this hike, and obnoxious selfie hogs on the arch really make it a lot less enjoyable. Oh yeah, and the toilet paper and human poop at the trailhead. LEAVE NO TRACE, PEOPLE. Dig a hole (with a rock or stick) if you need to take a dump when you’re outdoors!!!!!! And if you pee, just take your toilet paper with you, it’s not that complicated! This trail would be 5 stars if it weren’t for the people that visit it.

The best part of this hike was driving our friends 4x4 van to the actual trailhead!!! So much fun driving on the rough road, and getting to the good part of the hike in style!

I thought going on a Monday would have us skip the crowds, but this trail was still SUPER busy. We much preferred our time on lesser known trails in Sedona.

Had a blast, but saw two young ladies who drove their rental crossover into a ditch, they were still there on my way back out, waiting on a wrecker. So if you don’t have experience driving off-road please just hike to the trailhead

Started up but got off trail. Enjoyed exploring the currently dry creek bed. Lovely fall colors

Georgia state. Cherokee Trail very nice, beautiful trail. i never go to Hiking. My first time in to hiking very nice, peaceful. Then finishing My Trail point. I will ne there next time on trail. I got late at 6 pm. Dark. Will be strong. Next time.

Great trail and views! This trail is exactly what hiking is about. This is a must if you visit Sedona. The Bridge is much smaller when you are standing on top of it. Take plenty of water but there are numerous spots for rest and shade. Free to park, if you find a spot. I will hike this trail again.

A nice hike to wrap up November. If you don’t have a vehicle with high ground clearance, you’ll have to walk an extra mile or so each way down a road, which proved to be pretty soupy on the rainy day we chose to hike it. Aside from that it’s a fairly short hike with the majority of the elevation gain being in the last few hundred yards. Beautiful view from the bridge and it is much wider than it looks before you step out onto it. Your mom might be a bit hesitant to brave the bridge but just tell her to “do it for the ‘gram,” as my wife always says. She’ll be glad she did.

Nice view good trail

Today I made the loop. Falls were beautiful due to recent rains. Few(3) fallen trees blocked the trail but feasible to sneak into it. I made clockwise loop like many which was strenuous.

Convenient hike to get out of the city and into nature. A pretty popular trail but you can avoid the crowds by going early in the morning or late near twilight. Overall pretty easy hike open to all levels.

Spectacular hike. A rainy day and I had the entire trail to myself. If you’re heading up from Oat Mine, be careful right before Table Rock, as another reviewer has said, it can be easy to miss the switchbacks and lose the trail. If you use poles you’ll be glad you had them!

Go early. Like the minute the sun rises and you won’t have an issue parking or with crowds. Definitely worth it.

Park at mescal trailhead vs dry creek vista for a beautiful ~1 mi walk through well marked desert trail before getting to to devils bridge trailhead. You will avoid walking on dirt road to get there and be rewarded with great views!

The views are to die for...

TONS of water and high water crossings on Nov 25th. Had to take our shoes off and wade knee deep in ice cold water. Make sure you take poles and water shoes for water crossings on this hike! Lots of climbing up front which was awesome. We added another loop to make it a 9.5 mile hike. Took our large group 5.5 hours to complete.

You do have to walk/hike on a 4x4 road for a while, but the end of the hike is pretty neat and relatively flat. There are a few steep spots near the end that were steep, but nothing too hard.
If you want to beat the crowd, you need to get there before 9am. Mid day this is more of a tourist hike.

Fantastic hike, moderately easy. Views are beautiful, will definitely hike again. Perfect for a 65 degree day!
