Great views! There is a large network of trails in this area and numerous trails that link up to this trail. Pay attention to your direction as you can easily start walking on another trail and not realize it. They are all great trails so can’t really go wrong, but you may end up on a longer hike than you initially planned on.
Great views and landscapes along the way! Love this trail!

Novice hiker, but i am in decent shape. Not too tough. Trail was great. I went early in the morning to catch the sunrise at the summit. The trail isn’t intimidating until you get to the last stretch to the summit. Basically, the heli Landing spot is where it gets dicey. Just take your time. I got lost going down a couple times. That was the gnarliest part. Sunrise was great time to hike it. Tennis shoes are ok, but hiking shoes/boots would have been much better

Great feeling to finish this - I am in shape and it was hard great workout and beautiful views

heavy traffic on the trail but nice views from both sides as you're ascending. Be prepared to walk a near mile just to get to the trail head.

Definitely not a trail running trail- Absolutely spectacular views well marked Trail very pretty. All rocks. And definitely not a trail to take If you want to move fast! extremely crowded far too many hikers on trail for my preference

We drove in late in the afternoon and hiked this right before sunset on December 7th. Took about an hour and a half with us spending about a half hour at the top.

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.

This is my first time hiking camelback Mountain! I’m disabled and it was brutal! I made it 50 or so feet from the top. But didn’t feel safe scaling the rocks to the top. I’d be willing to try the echo canyon trail, I’m told it has more support. It’s definitely a challenge both physically and mentally. The energy of the mountain is definitely different! It’s super crowded! I’m still wrapping my mind around it

Beautiful

Great easy trail. make sure to find the hidden trail across the creak about halfway back, this will take you up a steep climb to an archway in the rock, and a great spot to relax for awhile. The views are great.

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!

Nice easy hike.

The views are awesome!
Good challenge, but really crowded and people don’t yield:(

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.

Great trail it gradually gets harder closer to the top

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 was amazing! It is $50 per person but totally worth the views. The tour guide is extremely helpful with taking pictures as well! A must see!!

Hiked Camelback in Feb 2018. Great workout. Fun and challenging climb. Beautiful view at the top.

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

For those of you who do not know, Tours must be booked to do this! Would recommend going in the summer and when the sun is in the middle of the sky, I went in the fall and the light rays were not as great (as told by our guide). Very busy, but worth seeing.

Hiked it today. Santa was at the top giving out candy canes. Fun hike! Watch for blue dots so you can stay on the trail

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.

Hiked this side november 2017, it’s hard to find a parking space since you have to park on the roadside. To get to the summit we had to scramble and cling on some parts, but if you not comfortable going all the way to the summit, it’s alright, you can still see a great view around, afterall, there is the echo trail on the other side

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.

3 stars for the App being WAY off on mileage. my Garmin and phone tracked 6.7 miles Echo to Cholla and Then back over Cholla to Echo with a side trail at the bottom of Echo. meaning Echo to Cholla is only 3.35 miles. where do you get you distances from?

Breath taking both figuratively and literally.

Fantastic walk. Great view of the city. Beautiful desert plants and scenery. Very steep in places.
