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).

It’s a little congested, however very scenic.

All age ranges were on the trail, and I noticed how very polite people were.

I liked all the stream crossings, and the canyon walls curl over you at times which was awesome.

Have fun!

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.

definitely go clock wise around the trail. it was gorgeous. it took us 2 hours, the trail is really well marked with white dots. plenty of places to stop and take in the scenery. loved every minute!

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.

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 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

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!!!

This was a great easy hike. We went in October, after A LOT of rain and the stream was running loudly. It was a truly sensory experience, the air was cool and crisp, it smelled so good and sweet, the stream was rushing noisily. The ground was soft from recent rains, so the ground was soft, but it really wasn't slippery muddy. It's a great trail for exploring because you can venture somewhat here and there away from the trail. There is a lovely memorial to the three year old who was killed along with many members of her family in 2017 when a storm hit, causing a flash flood that swept away several members of a family. When we finished the downstream trail, we turned around and walked upstream-both ways were pretty awesome.

beautiful hike with excellent views.

Wicked good day! We had a 70 year old grandad and a 5 year old niece taking pictures on the arch.

Great variety of terrain. Go clockwise to get the workout done first. Last mile or so was flat. Map my walk clocked the route as a little over 5 miles.

Loved the bridge and a must do in Sedona! Did not like that long, dusty, and muddy road you had to walk to get to the real trailhead. Take Chuckwagon and skip the road. A little bit longer, but if you prefer more of a trail vs a road, it’s the better option.

Easy hike with very beautiful stream and canyon views. We arrived early at sunrise and found parking. By the time we were finished there was a line of cars waiting to park. It was unclear where the trail went at times but someone mentioned that the rain probably made it hard to see.

Very easy trail, but don’t bring your dogs unless they are short leashes or well behaved. There were numerous dogs that were on a long leash and it made the narrow parts of the trail difficult.

Also, definitely hit this trail before 8 if you don’t want to be bombarded by people or struggle for parking. Other than that, it’s is absolutely gorgeous!

Really enjoyed this trail. Hiked with our 2 and 4 year olds but there were areas where they needed to be carried down the rocks, or helped. Beginning was a bit boring, the middle is beautiful.
We didn’t bring enough water or sunscreen, bring LOTS of water if hiking this during the warmer months.

A moderate hike, not an easy one with very steep rocks and steps close to the top. The effort is worth it. The views are breathtaking and if you are bold you can go out on the arch for a bucket list photo of your achievement.

If you begin the trail from the main road, you’ll be following an off-roading trail for a while before getting to the trail head. It ended up being a 5.6 miles of mild effort, totally worth it.

Beautiful! We brought our kids on it and they did great. Our youngest was 2 and he had no problem at all.

Slide Rock is beautiful. It can be busy at times. We actually parked far, then just hiked down from where we parked. Found a secluded swim area. Not recommended for everyone to do this as it is a steep, primative hike down.

Have hiked this trail twice now and loved it both times!

Great hike. Take lots of water. Take lots of breaks as you go up- it’s worth it to take your time. Beautiful views along the way. The bridge is an amazing site. Ask a stranger to take your picture- and then return the favor! Gorgeous.
Some may complain that its congested with people- but everyone was very nice and considerate. Move to the side if you notice people with a quicker pace coming behind you! Very helpful.
The second time I went I had trouble finding the trail as I apparently took the wrong direction of Mescal trail, instead of parking at Dry Creek.

what's not to love, short hike but amazing views and a thrill to be had!
Don't miss this!

Super beautiful trail, sometimes a little steep, nice views.

The TH is only reachable with a high clearance vehicle. Parking in overflow or on Boynton adds 1.2 miles. From the TH it’s 0.7 to the bridge. The trail is almost entirely exposed. Still hot to do in the afternoon in late September. Okay in the morning. Trail in is not challenging but the last bits up to the natural bridge may prove hairy for some especially going down. Hiking boots or at least decent runners are recommended. Not flip flops or Keds. It’s worth going down to the canyon floor as well. Trail is quite busy and of course well marked.
