This hike was my first hike in Sedona and I was not disappointed. I expected it would take me about 3-4 hours but I ended up staying on the trail for 6 because I was stopping and enjoying the diverse scenery. As soon as you pass the retreat (which was loud due to construction) you run across a vortex tucked away in the brush. I noticed a few colorful totem poles that lead me right to it. As you continue through the canyon it turns from low brush to a beautiful Forest. I was surprised to see fallen yellow leaves, moss & grass out in the "desert". The trail only gets rugged towards the end, but is totally doable for inexperienced hikers. Once you make it to the end, there is a nice size space to sunbath on the rocks and enjoy the scenery. On my way back down I found another vortex area tucked off the side of the trail. I enjoyed a short break there before making my way back to the trail head. I highly recommend taking this hike!

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.

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.

Great hike! Cross the creek to continue the hike..and to the right. Take your shoes off!

Majestic views!!! It really delivers.

Took us about 1.5 hours round trip. A brief, challenging part. The rest is easy!

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!

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.

One of the best. Be aware... don’t get lost.

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

In the winter this is a moderate trail because crossing icy rocks many times isn’t easy. Still fun, but bring a walking stick, carry an extra pair of socks, and have dry shoes waiting in the car.

An easy hike with a gradual elevation gain and several stream crossings. Views are amazing.

Fun, easy nice views

take good shoes, plenty of water snacks, camera at least one, dress in layers and for the time of the year, go early morning find a parking spot and not to many people at the bridge but then the light is not as great but there is no rush to leave hang out pack a lunch but remember pack it in pack it out. I would NOT recommend young children or babies but I've seen them up there, NO SMOKING OR WOULDN'T DRINK ANY TYPE OF ALCOHOL ALSO

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

Pretty easy til you get towards the top skinny rocks to get through then a little harder!

Amazing views from top and man playing flute was so cool! Easy and good for kids.

We started out on this trail and due to the hot weather, decided to veer off on the shorter Vista Trail (about 20 minutes each way from the trailhead). We saw the yin (Kachina - feminine) and yang (male) vortices, along with a stunning view of the valley below. Highly recommend this short and rewarding hike!

Super fun. easy. beautiful. you do walk across the river a few times so be prepared.

A fun easy hike to an amazing vortex and view.

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...

Great hike, fairly easy except for some steep, rocky sections but well worth it to see devils bridge! Great views and great picture opportunities!

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!
