This hike is very challenging but well worth it to see the spectacular views! Not meant for shoes that have no grip.

Beautiful views at the end.. Jeep traffic the first mile was unattractive.

Easy hike around the airport perimeter. Your up on the Mesa, every turn offers a great view of the surroundings. I'd reccomend it just for picture opportunities.

Beautiful views from the bridge, other than that nothing too wondrous on your way up.

Great trail. Stay off the road. Ha! My recoding was cut off. I should have downloaded the map lol

There is one part where it's bad, but it's the only place that it is that bad. Otherwise I was not scrambling.

Awesome views and trail!

This trail gets 5 stars because the views along the way and the view at the top is totally worth it - but it is definitely a difficult trail. I would consider it more rock-climbing as there are multiple places where I was crawling on my hands/knees. I took my 60 pound boxer and had to lift him up/down in a couple spots. Even if you're in shape, the elevation changes so quickly it gets hard to breathe - my suggestion is take a couple breaks along on the way up and enjoy the views!

The walk back to the actual climb is long, over a mile itself. If you have a 4x4 you can drive all the way back, otherwise you’re walking the first leg. The actual climb itself is narrow and daunting in some areas but you aren’t crawling up a rock. The view at the bridge is great!

Very nice and easy trail, however, it is a very heavy trafficked trail. Views on one side are great, other side not so much. Parking can be difficult at the trail head because of the amount of people.

We came to devils bridge via Chuckwagon trail which is delightfully easy and beautiful. Devil's bridge was incredible and totally worth the journey to the top where everyone helps each other get that perfect pic. 16km for the total trip.

Awesome hike up...views along the way are fantastic. We came in via Yavapai trail head and hiked Slim Shady to Templeton to get to bottom of Cathedral Rock Trail. We didn't do the Templeton loop and just backtracked so round trip it was 11km for the whole trip. Slim Shady and Templeton were easy and very few people.

Fantastic trail. Wife thought because distance was short it would be easy. Be prepared!

Great hike, go early to avoid the heat. Amazing views once you reach the ‘bridge’. Could be a bit challenging to climb for some

Easy trail to a lookout. In November we went at 6 am and the colors were really good as the sun hit the red rocks at about 7 am glad we waited for the sun to rise over the mountains and hit the red rocks to the west! Beautiful!!!

Completed this hike back in October and it is truly magnificent.

I love Boynton Canyon - beautiful red rocks and amazing positive energy throughout!

I had read previously about the parking and crowd. So we were the first to get there at the Long Canyon parking area just before sunrise. That turned out to be a great decision because we get to see the sunrise between the rock formations. The trail was rocky & offered much interest through a creekbed & fantastic vista points. Climbing up to the bridge and bridge itself were highlight for sure. Pay attention to where the trail intersects the wide jeep road so when you return from the bridge, you don't miss the trail. Good to have GPS and map since this was our 1st time there, and some parts on the rocky trail was not a clear trail to follow which way to go so early, without other people to follow.

Went there 2 days ago and loved it. We had rented a jeep, and it was worth it to drive almost 1 mile in and then hiked the rest. Came across a couple from Florida who walked the entire way, and the happily joined us in the jeep for the last park of the trail down. Lucky for them because it became very windy and dusty as we finished the trip.

Be daring and walk out on the arch (it looks worse then it is). We took pictures and had a good time with strangers we had never met.

We went 2 days ago, and it is definitely a hard trail. Some spots we were using all fours to climb. So worth it at the top. Windy and somewhat cold so bring that extra layer, hat, and gloves to keep warm.

This is amazing, it took me about 1 hour to climb the view was AMAZING I really enjoyed this and I want to do this again!

Surpassed my expectations. The devils bridge arch is spectacular, but the hike in was much lusher and diverse than I had anticipated.

Clearly marked trail with great views from the top. Highly recommend it!

A fun, short, but steep hike! Beautiful views at the top, my favorite vortex in Sedona!

Amazing views but long and tiring hike when the sun is beating down. You get no relief from the sun for over half of the hike. Then when you think you are done, you keep climbing and hoping to get to the trail head. If you are lucky enough to get a parking spot at the actual trailhead, that is great. But if you have to park at the airport lot, the last .6 is not fun! But it was an awesome hike and I would do it again.

loved this trail, though there is a lot of noise from the resort and some of the rocky areas make it more moderate than easy. great sunrise photos of color on the red rocks

Stunning! Drive in as far as you can if you want to save some time. The walk in is what takes the most time.
