Chuck wagon is flatter but interesting landscape with no crowds and no jeeps with great finale of devils bridge! Great for active families!

100% better to take chuck wagon trail over the off road dirt road. We started back on the road thinking it would be faster, but it was so dusty and not scenic that we cir led back to take the stunning chuck wagon trail again on the way back.

Great little hike and the end view and pictures are worth it!

Beautiful. You need a 4x4 to get to the devil’s bridge trailhead. The road is super rocky and unpaved—I do not recommend you try it. Instead, drive to the trailhead devils bridge trailhead as far as you can go. I put it into my GPS. you will see when the road becomes unpaved. Stop there and immediately to your left you’ll see a parking lot. Park there. Do the Chuck Wagon trail (marked as 3-strenuous on the trail map). Note it is NOT strenuous. I would classify it as easy. And the hike was gorgeous with beautiful views. Once you get to devil’s bridge trail, the views aren’t great until you get to the end. devil’s bridge trail is moderate, and the rock scramble to the top is moderate to strenuous. It took us 2.5 hours round trip including stopping for pix at the top. I note that to get back to the car, we did the route 1–easy. It was dusty and had jeeps on it and no views. We saw a lot of people walking along it instead of taking chuck wagon. I totally recommend taking chuck wagon!!! That was the best part of the hike. I recommend this hike. Not my favorite but fun and not too long.

This is a great trail that starts with some beautiful views on the initial 2/3 - Chuck Wagon Trail. Once the trail crosses the atv trail, it becomes Devils Bridge Trail and it ascends very quickly to the Bridge, the Payoff at the bridge is spectacular.

Nice quiet trail

We hiked the Chuckwagon Trail from Dry Creek trailhead parking area. Arrived at 10:30 and got one of the last 2 parking spaces. Chuckwagon crosses the 4WD access road and continues up to Devils Bridge. Spectacular views from Devils Bridge. To cut some distance off the return hike we came back down the 4WD access road. Encountered 3 trucks on our return hike.

Go early to beat the crowd but worth the trip

Nice way to bypass most of the crowds and all of the jeeps along the 4X4 road. the end is a steep climb of rock steps. There is a line of people at the end taking selfies and pictures on bridge itself.

Cute hike. I would say it's worth it, and is probably leaning more towrads easy than moderate. We did it along with brins mesa/soldier pass/teacup and lizard head.

The biggest recommendation I have for this trail is a map or GPS. The trail itself is very hard to stay on. Some parts are obvious but others can be very tricky. I read a lot of hiking blogs that helped because they gave turn by turn directions. But I still could not finish the trail because I kept losing it. And I needed to turn back before night. The dirt road to the trailhead is also very easy to get lost on. There is no cell phone service so be aware of that. I was able to drive the trail with the sedan but it got really bumpy. Very peaceful hike. Really in the middle of nowhere.

Great trail for winter walks

Had a great time. Recommend to come early, so you'll have parking (I took one of the last ones, and arrived at 0900 on Sunday). The Chuck wagon part is very nice and worth the detour!

spectacular views, devil's bridge is awesome

Light traffic on the trail for a cool Saturday morning. A few mountain bikers but a perfect distance and a good challenge for trail running.

It's an out-and-back on a very pretty segment of the Arizona trail (not much for vistas, but I had the trail to myself on a very pretty Friday afternoon in late summer, and the rock formations and partial meadows along the way are idyllic).

Drove in on Dry Creek Road...at least .4 miles of it. Parked at a pull off and hiked the rest of the way. Driving my Expedition got me that far but didn't want to challenge the ground clearance anymore. Well marked trail. Steep towards the end but well worth the hike. Gorgeous views. Hiked out early and really only saw 2 other groups on the way up.

It was good, nice views, but make sure to bring more water than you think you would need for a 6 mile hike! The last mile is basically straight up a mountain, and there isn't shade anywhere. Also when I was there the mile before and after the turnaround were insanely crowded. Mobs of people wearing inappropriate hiking attire that had been shuttled there from somewhere and were blocking large parts of the path

Very nice drive, some bad spots but some beautiful views

Chuckwagon to Devils Bridge, then back to Chuckwagon to Gun Slinger, to Mescal, Chuckwagon to parking lot. Great 10 mile hike. Lots of terrain and elevation changes. 4 1/2 hour looped trip.

Double your pleasure with great vistas of the area you can't get by walking the road to Devil's Bridge. At one point, you'll have 360 degree views of Sedona's NW Trail Area. You will add 2 miles round trip to your hike, but Chuck Wagon is easy. Be prepared that Devil's Bridge will be very busy, but it is definitely worth it.

Perfect shorter hike for me and my two Tasmanian Devil Boston Terriers. You can go even farther by veering off into other trails but we turned around so 5 miles. Only saw 2-3 people so not overly populated.

Moderate to difficult trail in parts. Great views throughout. Amazing view from the top. Downhill is much easier than expected.

Great hike for this semi-sedentary woman! The flora and fauna and unique lushness of the life in the canyon was invigorating and peaceful at the same time.
