Not a hike-easy walk. Interesting site. Not self guided. Be sure to arrive before 2:30 as they close up at 3.

Ancient Sinagua Indian site. Very interesting with friendly volunteer guides. The five mile unpaved road was rough on a normal car.

Okay, so the reviews on here are where people are claiming the trail is easy and follows the spring do NOT correlate with the trail GPS map on AllTrails. All these nimrods are saying “oh I stopped at the spring” okay well that’s not what this trail goes to on AllTrails. The spring is easy to get to. But that’s not where the GPS ends. It takes you ALL the way up the rim, I’m talking steep inclines, no marked trail, climbing over 1,000 feet in under a mile. I wouldn’t let a kid under 13 do that part of the hike. It goes all the way up to rim road. And that’s where it ends. An anticlimactic, ugly road. Would I ever go past the springs again? Hell no- but the reviews are VERY misleading. Also kind of annoying people rating the “trail” as easy when they didn’t even complete it. That would be like taking the helicopter in and out of Havasupai and then calling the hike easy. Yeah, it’s easy if you only go a third of the way.

So, yeah the creek is pretty, but don’t follow the AllTrails guidance and if you do, don’t go past the spring unless you’re ready for a Flatiron-Esque climb. And ignore all these numnuts saying it’s easy- I hike every weekend, have hiked Humphrey’s, Flatiron, Havasupai, Grand Canyon Rim and I’m telling you the AllTrails GPS marked hike takes you up the damn rim. This is misleading and mis-rated. I’m all for a rough and tough hike but the misleading ranking of difficulty and reviews is annoying and borderline negligent.

Always loved this trail give yourself a couple of hours to finish the whole thing and take it all in! well worth the drive ⛰

Fun trail with a great payoff at the end. About 4 miles RT. Have to scramble up a little at the end. Not siuitae for young kids or dogs in my opinion. First mile out is hot with little shade.

Great views. Must go to sacred pools in the spring.

Absolutely worth it. Parked further away, and had a nice long walk before reaching the "climb" upwards.

Worth the short, quad busting ascent, and there aren't too many better places to finish in Sedona if you're looking for a great view.

We only made it to the bridge, but it was well worth the climb. There are some very steep grades and a lot of beautiful scenery.

Decent hike, super congested. Views are great but better ones can be found in Sedona

My kids 7 & 10 loved it, as did the adults. It’s a little intimidating at the end, but worth it! He most challenging part is the last 1/4 mile so even if you think you can’t make it, keep going!

Absolutely beautiful trail. So much green, so close to Phoenix, and about 20° cooler. The creek is gorgeous and refreshing. The trail runs right next to the creek most of the way. The trail is very easy, very wide, and mostly flat except for a few uphills as you get further in. The waterfall is small but pretty and a good place to relax. Past the waterfall is a more challenging trail that climbs right up the mountain to Promontory Butte, which offers an amazing scenic lookout. I've been to Horton Creek 3 times and enjoyed each time.

Favorite hike in Sedona with breathtaking views at the end. Worth it to take a high clearance 4x4 to avoid the additional walk from the parking lot to the trailhead which is easy, but rocky and somewhat boring. Fairly easy for most of the hike until the scramble to the top which requires some pretty fun climbing to the summit.

Highly recommend this beautiful hike.

is alreary open ??or is still close..because i want to go next weekend

Had a wonderful day exploring Sedona, including a hike up to Devil's Bridge. Absolutely breathtaking views!

Definitely worth the views at the end. I can get vertigo with heights and steep elevations. I almost didn't make it to the top because there is a steep rocky scramble just before you reach the bridge but a lot of people of the trail encouraged me and helped me through. Glad I did the whole thing! There are a couple of great lookouts on the way up to stop and rest. The trail signs recommend you bring 1 gallon of water, I had about 70oz and drank every drop in the heat during May. No bathrooms on the trail of course but you'll sweat it out anyway! Bathrooms are available at the parking lot. There are a couple of trails that can all lead to Devil's bridge so just be sure to remember which way you came/went. I think most of the trails lead back to the same parking lot so if all else fails just walk the ORV path back and you'll find the parking lot.

Devils Bridge Trail was worth the hike! It was easy to find. Google maps will lead you to the Devil Bridge Parking Lot where passenger vehicles must park. There is a road that goes to the trailhead but it is only for jeeps and buggies and other vehicle s similar to that. There is a parking lot and it was free and a few spaces when we arrived around 2pm. Not many people were there the day we went which was Thursday a weekday. The trail does not start at the parking lot. There is a dirt road which must be taken in order to reach the trailhead. This road is not difficult. It is flat and very rocky but doable. The trail head for Devils Bridge will be clearly marked. I would say 70% of the hike up is easy to moderate level. It is a slight incline with lots of rocks. Just before the bridge the trail is moderately difficult. There will be stair-like rocks that take you all the way to the Bridge. Be careful on these rocks because the sand is fine therefore making the rocks slippery. I am 21 and have not exercised in a year and am scared of heights however this trail was easier than expected and shorter than expected. We went in August so the weather was nice with partially cloudy and partially sunny. Brings lots of water. I went with four people and we each drank 3 16oz bottles.

I was extremely nervous to take this hike because of some extreme reviews. However if you are in good health and good spirit then this hike is definitely a must do! I enjoyed it and the views were worth the climb!

Short, easy and pretty. But also unbelievably crowded with many people being their most annoying selves, showing absolutely no regard for anyone or anything else, just so they have the "perfect" Instagram picture...

Amazing views! Easily one of my favorite hikes in recent memory, and my 17th State high point!

Great hike, not sure why this is rated as moderate. Once you get to the waterfall the real hike begins in one mile you will climb 1400+ feet up the face of the rim. The trail is pretty much non existent I had to follow stacks of rocks and build my own in some spots, as my phone had died and I was on my own. All trails, say this is a 4 mile 1900 ft elevation gain when I got to waterfall i was like there is now way I hiked 1900 ft. I pulled up all trails and seen I still had 1 mile to go. I did not want to miss out on anything and pressed on. Take lots of water and food as that last mile is ruff. If all you want to do is hike to the waterfall then I would say this hike is easy.

Hiked Devil's Bridge this morning and the views are amazing! I drove to the parking area with my Subaru Outback and it was bumpier and more steep than I anticipated, I would recommend a higher clearance vehicle. Like others have mentioned get there in the morning to avoid the crowd and heat!

I did it today, it’s really nice but bring a lot of water with you

The view at the end his so nice, it was the best hike of my life !!!!

Love this hike. The views are worth it. Only downside is how busy it is at the top. People will stand in line to have their solo moment on the bridge and literally just make people wait until their 50 spread photo shoot is over. Unless you're like me and you walk across the bridge to sit at the end of it, out of their picture. Sorry, not sorry.

Easy walking trail mostly on red sand. Highly recommend climbing the rock wall at the end of the trail - AMAZING views of Sedona!

My family loved it! It was my 4 year old daughters first time really having to climb so I'm glad we went.

Outstanding hike. End view worth the “stairs”. If you can hike Piestewa in Phoenix you can easily do this.

Unbelievable views, and challenging terrain. This hike had many other hikers on the trail. I clocked 5.1 miles in 2 1/2 hours. The Summit sign was just changed (new) earlier today. It was kind of a bummer I couldn’t locate the USGS medallion. The last 2 miles are the most challenging due to the lose rock, false summits (3 of them) and the thin air. Over all a great challenging hike.

Great hike! Did the entire trail plus added a bit extra on by going up the Weatherford trail a ways before turning back - would up a little over 12 miles round trip.My wife and I enjoyed all the new growth and wild flowers after a month of some monsoon rains.It was 68 degrees - perfect, wonderful getaway from the valley. Good workout hike too,

Amazing trail. Wonderful views. One of first times using the free app. It stopped recording somehow so not exactly how far i actually hiked. Preparing to go Havasupai - this trail has lots of ups and more ups! Good work out for me. Temp in low 80’s with overcast skies made it perfect !!!

How can hikes be better than this? Hard to fathom.

We 'trained' for Humphrey's for a couple of months, knowing that it would be the highest elevation we'd ever climbed, and gave ourselves (staying in Flagstaff) 3 days to acclimate. It's doable if you are in decent shape, bring plenty of water and a snack for the top, and have some patience with all of the other foot traffic. We picked the most gorgeous day - not a cloud in the sky and rain chances (during monsoon season), 0%. Apparently everyone else chose the same Saturday, and with good reason. Our group of 7 was up in 3, down in 3 for a total of 6 hours (left the parking lot at 6:45 am). The trail is really unforgiving in places - lots of rocks, roots and other low-lying obstacles to give your knees and ankles an insane workout. Trekking poles help, but aren't required.

No reason to restate what has been posted. Just put this on your bucket list and check it off. (Sorry to hear Ron's tale, below!)

While we would have liked to take a pic at the summit sign to show our 12,633-foot, 3,300 vertical odyssey was legit, it was vandalized (or whipped off its post from recent monsoons). Regardless, I'll never forget this epic hike!
