easy hike some awesome views.

For my second hike in AZ, this was pretty decent. For those complaining about Sharing a road with 4 wheelers and trucks than just take the chuck wagon trail and bypass that. It’s quiet, has better views and you don’t have to complain to people about how crappy the hike is because of vehicles. While true that devils bridge is busy, I found most people to be respectful and take photos for other people while keeping it moving. At times it’s was comical watching people do head stands and such. Go summit Everest if you don’t want to run into people. That’s half the fun of hiking and enjoying nature with other people! The views are great and the hike was enjoyable. Don’t over think it and just do it.

Super hard. It’s all scrambling after about 1/4 mile up. 360 degree views are amazing. Definitely go up Echo Canyon so you can say you did it! Coming down is just a difficult. Proper shoes are a must!

Oh and love Santa!!!

First time hiking this trail and it did not disappoint! Was surprised how tough the last part was, but well worth the trip!

A must do for the 360 degree views of the Valley. Be ready to scramble and climb. Proper hiking shoes are a must!

Awesome views of Phoenix! Wasn’t too challenging until the top with more rock climbing.

Very challenging and fun!

Great variety and great Boulder climbing!

Nice hike - definitely add the Chuckwagon Trail as opposed to the road. It was not as heavily trafficked as I feared from the comments and everyone was super chill and nice. If you’re a serious climber/hiker, I can see why you might be underwhelmed, but for the “Average Joe” it was quite enjoyable.

This hike is so full of people, even in December. The parking lot is located 2 miles from the actual trailhead and that 2 miles is not exciting at all. It’s a rocky 4x4 road. We “cheated” and took an ATV to the trailhead. The actual hike by our standards (experienced hiker) was not difficult and the bridge is actually quite beautiful. There was a line to take photos on the bridge but people were respectful and got on and off quickly. There are much more exciting hikes in Sedona, even in this general area. I would have rated this even lower had we made the full hike from the parking lot.

Fun! Definitely steep and difficult at some points, but overall it was totally worth it.

Went when it was slightly rainy and enjoyed the experience, the climb up is a nice vertical climb, slippery when wet (lol). My heart rate was elevated as I went up at a fast pace, the view at the top was incredible, pretty much as good as it gets! The trail is marked so following the posts was a nice way to stay on target, the descent was fun, tricky but keeps your mind focused and constantly working.

Very nice hike. At 62, it was a challenge. Saw lots of people in tennis shoes, which is asking for a twisted ankle or slipping on a rock. But a great hike none the less.

Amazing Trail. More treacherous than the photos really give it credit for. It’s straight uphill but not terribly long. Not for amateurs.

Great workout definitely worth the view!

My daughter and I loved this location. Absolutely beautiful place. Nice hike.

Novice hiker, but i am in decent shape. Not too tough. Trail was great. I went early in the morning to catch the sunrise at the summit. The trail isn’t intimidating until you get to the last stretch to the summit. Basically, the heli Landing spot is where it gets dicey. Just take your time. I got lost going down a couple times. That was the gnarliest part. Sunrise was great time to hike it. Tennis shoes are ok, but hiking shoes/boots would have been much better

heavy traffic on the trail but nice views from both sides as you're ascending. Be prepared to walk a near mile just to get to the trail head.

physically demanding and definitely not for first time hiking beginners, bring plenty of water and good gripping shoes

Definitely not a trail running trail- Absolutely spectacular views well marked Trail very pretty. All rocks. And definitely not a trail to take If you want to move fast! extremely crowded far too many hikers on trail for my preference

I started at 10:30 am, I was surprised to see that most of the way up is in shade.

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.

Rated hard but if you’re in shape and have okay balance this shouldn’t be any trouble at all. Be sure to hydrate, take water and good shoes.

This is my first time hiking camelback Mountain! I’m disabled and it was brutal! I made it 50 or so feet from the top. But didn’t feel safe scaling the rocks to the top. I’d be willing to try the echo canyon trail, I’m told it has more support. It’s definitely a challenge both physically and mentally. The energy of the mountain is definitely different! It’s super crowded! I’m still wrapping my mind around it

Trail is xtremely well traveled. Rated hard but with the well groomed and placed steps, handholds and rails its overrated. I'd say it's an easy hike with plenty of opportunity to stay safe for fit individuals. Big falls possible if careless or weak. Lower body injuries will require rescue and dehydration is most risky factor. Slippy gravel at times recommended grippy soles.

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!

The views are awesome!
Good challenge, but really crowded and people don’t yield:(

Echo Canyon is a great workout, no question. A little scrambling the last part and of course 'the rails' will test you but they aren't nearly as bad as they are reputed to be. It's a great morning hike late in the season because the last part has a lot of shade. Is it harder than the Cholla trail? Overall in my opinion no. There are some challenging spots but all in all I feel it's slightly easier.

Parking sucks, no question. Best bet is to get a ride to and from unless you want to camp out on McDonald in the wee hours of the morning hoping for a spot.

Stunning formation. Unique, must do hike.
