WOW, lovely and impressive natural stone arch. Careful going up the last two stone stairways at the top, the steps are covered in dust making the slippery in places...have your hands free in case you start to fall. Don't forget the little side trail that heads back down under the Devil's Bridge, while maybe it is not as cool from below as seen from on top of it, it is worth checking out.

Great hike, worth the long walk to trail head, took about 2 hours total

on Devils Bridge Trail

4 hours ago

Started this hike from the small Mescal TH parking lot. It’s a 30 min easy hike to the Devils Bridge TH and then another 20-30 mins to the top. I started at 7am and got back to my car at 9am. That includes time at the top taking pictures and soaking it all in. I also jogged back to my car most of the way. It’s not a hard hike at all but there are parts closer to the top where it’s steep. But if you’re nervous just go slow and pay attention to where your feet are.

best views hands down. brutal home tho

Easy trail with beautiful views. We went around 7am on a Tuesday and found parking. Once you reach out he end, you can choose to continue on one of two other trails or turn back. Ample shade with cool breezes.

Easy trail. Would love to do again with water flowing! Anticlimactic ending without the waterfall

Great hike. Great view.

Great view!

Awesome hike, amazing views. Definitely worth it.

This trail is awesome and for the most part, very easy. There is a very narrow ledge at the top to access the cave but the view is spectacular from the cave. We did see some other people along the trail but we had a half hour to ourselves when we got to the top.

Climb a little
Worth the effort

Amazing trail! Backpacked in and camped next to the creek. But be alert as we spotted a mountain lion on a low cliff directly above the trail about 3 miles in. Trekking poles were very helpful for this hike and all of the creek crossings.

Incredibly beautiful views! Tons of people were hiking this trail, some folks were on bikes, some on horseback. As you get closer to the actual bridge, you will be hiking with a lot of other people. There was a huge line and a thirty minute wait just to walk over the bridge. Also dog owners beware. I saw a lot of dogs suffering from heat exhaustion. I would not bring my dogs on this trail. And if you must, bring lotssss of water for them to drink, and to wet them down.

Nice easy hike. Took this trail as a part of a loop including Long Canyon and Mescal.

Spectacular hike with a variety of steep and very steep parts. This hike is a good workout and requires either loads of photo breaks or a strong heart.

Great easy hike with very little elevation change. The best part is the Rock scramble at the end, where there are beautiful views as you climb. Very easy for children and a lot of shade as you make your way to the scramble.

Great views from the Roost!! DO NOT follow the directions on the app to the trailhead. The directions lead you to an ATV trail. Stay on Sycamore Pass Road when you arrive to a sign that reads end of maintained road. Sycamore Pass road is maintained. The trailhead is not clearly marked which is not the apps fault. Once on the trail the beginning of the hike is up a rocky road. The end of the hike is not marked correctly. Make sure to stay to the left and go around the rocks to see and enter the roost. Again great views just not well marked.

Only thing we would do differently is go in via Chuckwagon trail instead of the road. Much of the road is dusty and traveled by jeeps and 4 wheelers. The bridge is definitely worth hiking to even though the last quarter of a mile is fairly steep and requires a little scrambling.

It was beautiful, a pretty easy walk/hike. Don't bring your dog unless you know they can handle it. There were a lot of people carrying small dogs.

Relatively short and for the most part easy. There's one section getting near the top where you have to scramble up the rocks. There's also a side trail where you can view the arch from underneath which as worth the extra little walk. The trail was quite crowded so if I went again I would go during the week and even earlier in the morning

Easy trail with good views.

Make sure you take a right when you get to the fork on the trail. Left for spring (top of waterfall) right for dam (bottom). Took about 7 hours pacing myself and spending time at the waterfall. Hiked in mid April and water was great!

This was much more my speed as a beginner vs the longer hike to the upper falls via Flume trail and in my opinion just as pretty. The only negative comment I have is the amount of people trying to drive Hondas or Prius. It's about a 30-45min drive down a rough dirt road. They didn't let the Jeeps like us and 4x4s pass and we saw a few get stuck. Common courtesy let people with more suitable
off-road vehicles pass.

Went this last weekend with my husband and friend- was absolutely stunning! Easy hike and well worth it! So many swimming holes! We were in a Kia and the ride down was a little nerve racking but slow and steady and you’ll be ok!

Extremely hard but worth it for the views. When you feel like quitting just keep going and you’ll be so happy when you see the end of trail sign!

Toddler friendly hike. End has a nice rock scramble that is a must do...just not with the toddler. Beautiful views both ways from the top.

If you stick out a thumb and a bee you might get a free private pink Jeep tour from a local on the walk back :)
