This was my first hike! It was beautiful, peaceful, quiet. Definitely made me fall in love with hiking and solidified the reason I moved to Arizona. It rained a bit, but it was still so much fun and an amazing first experience.

Great hike. moderately easy. The first half of the trail is not as interesting, (if you park in the main parking lot and walk, it is a ways until you get to the trailhead.) However if you have a 4x4 vehicle - you can enter the dirt path from the parking lot and drive up some to the trailhead and park- it will save you 30 minutes of not a lot of excitement before you get to this amazing hike. Views are stunning at the top. Cheers!

Incredibly beautiful with great photo ops along the way and especially in the bridge itself! Moderate level, took us a total of 2 hours from parking lot to trailhead to bridge and back. (It was also lightly raining so that may have affected our time).

Wide path, rocky in spots, steady uphill. Closer to moderate especially last 1/4 mile. Great view payoffs at Chicken Point. Fairly steady traffic.

Great trail for sunset but don't wait to late to do the full loop it gets dark fast and it's a rocky trail. Take a headlamp for extra caution.

More moderate than expected, due to the rocks and uneven paths. Trail was easy to follow. Wouldn’t do it again but the views were nice.

Thank goodness for this APP! We started out on Brins Mesa and it was absolutely beautiful. All the way to the top where it levels out, almost like your on a prairie. Planned on coming back down through Soldiers Pass to Jordan’s pass to Cibola Pass, but forgot to take Jordan’s Pass

Difficult climb and footing, but breathtaking vistas and great payoff view.

First of all we parked in the Brins Mesa Trailhead. There were a few cars but the lot was definitely not full. We set out at about 11:00 am on Brins Mesa, connecting with Soldier's Pass, Jordans Trail and Cibola Pass to get back to the car around 3:15. We took our time hiking the trail as we were in no hurry and wanted to take in all the scenery around us. The views on this hike were spectacular. From the top of the mesa to walking through the valley, each view held its own beauty. The distance for the complete trip was around 7 miles. A little climbing up to the mesa and then again as you walk the Cibola Pass trail back to the car. However, slow and steady I did not find this hike to be difficult. This was a great hike and would suggest it to anyone willing to take a medium length hike at a moderate pace.

Im not a fan of switchbacks but this one only switches a few short times. Beautiful views to the west on the way up. Also up on the mesa you can walk around and find a million spots to sit, eat lunch and soak in the Sedona views. Moderate only in that there are a few spots where you need to climb up some rocks to get to the too. My wife is a little afraid of heights and some areas made her nervous but she made the entire hike and enjoyed it.

Pretty straight forward hike. You can drive down dry creek rd to the trailhead if you want to shorten the hike and get more time for other things. Not strenuous. Very cool views at the end and of course you need to walk across the bridge. Rock/stairs at end can be slippery so be careful.

nice trail, lots of great views all along the trail plus variability in the terrain. takes longer than you think - the highest point you see from the trailhead is only half the distance and half the altitude of the mountain.

easy climb to spectacular views. map trail ends at top but keep going on the trail across the mesa.

beautiful views, easy hike

By far my favorite hike in Sedona!! Very difficult do not start out thinking it’s only 3 miles. The climb will get to you, trust me. We took this trail all the way to the end where it reaches the Vultee Arch trail. Of course we had to go up to Vultee Arch and have lunch the turned around and went out the same way we went in. Very hard and the elevation gain was somewhere around 4K- there was a lot of ups and downs and back up! It’s Gorgeous hike!!! Well worth it and is now one of my Top 10 hikes in AZ.

Beautiful hike with even better views! The trail was very busy when we went around 10:00 am. The trail was more difficult than I expected but worth it once you get to the bridge. There is some climbing involved but my dog didn’t have a problem with it.

Easy hike, perfect for morning. We got a little lost when we hit the creek bed area but as another person mentioned on here, it was easy to wind our way back on to a well-worn path. Nice views, loved our photos, even on a cloudy day!

The hike up to the plateau was great. The views were awesome! The only drawback on this trail is when doing the loop, the trail is NOT marked at all! And I mean NOT at all. To make matters worse, the trail st the top of the loop heading down soldiers pass was completely washed out! We got out by using god on our cell phone!
It is beautiful, but would suggest using the short cut across toSoldiers Pass until the trail is back!

Worthwhile hike. Couple in mid sixties, experienced hikers. We started at 7:30 am Saturday to beat crowds. We saw about 8 other hikers, all friendly.

The natural bridge is all that other reviewers have described. It is at least 8 feet wide at the narrowest and even those with vertigo should not worry. Just use common sense. We were back down to the trailhead by 9:30. The trail was getting very crowded by then.

We drove the VERY rocky road up from the highway. Our Subaru Outback handled it, but be careful that you have at least 8 inches ground clearance for your vehicle.

Well traveled trail, solid payoff and great morning hike

Great first day hike to do to warm the legs up. Easy to do for all levels. Hiking thru the tall pines is beautiful and at the end looking back thru the canyon viewing it from the top is a pretty view.

Great drive to the trail head in the JLU and the hike from there was about an hour round trip! Great views!!!

A must to see

Great for little kids!

Beautiful views and a pretty tough workout for a 57 year old with bad knees and ankles.

Add this to your list, you won’t regret it! We arrived around 9:20am on a Wednesday and were able to find parking at the TH at Dry Creek. Took about 1 hr to get the the bridge. Relatively flat until you get close to the bridge about the last 10 minutes with extremely steep and vertical stone stairs to get up there. Once you are up the views are spectacular! When we got up there were only a few other and taking turns for pictures was easy. Started to get really crowded at the bridge around 11:00 and we headed back down. When we left there were a ton of cars parked out on the street as the parking lot was full. Highly recommend this one!!!
