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

Amazing! This easy scenic hike is something everyone should do at least once. The rock formations are so unique and this is an outing even young families will enjoy. During December, there are sign posts with the 12 days of Christmas, Arizona-desert style marking the first 1/4 mile of the route. Very easy and well maintained trail!

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.

Great Hike with GTAH, AZ! Easy/Moderate with spectacular views! Bathroom on site! Need to purchase pass at Gas Stations, $8.00

I'd call this moderate but strenuous. Nothing incredibly difficult about the ascent, just a lot of work if you aren't in the best shape (me). I particularly enjoy that it's not the usual desert landscape. There are a lot of trees and shady areas that you can feel the temp drop as soon as you walk through them. There's a beautiful view of the Needle at the top with plenty of space to relax and enjoy the view. A great all around hike. Plan on about 90-120 minutes up and about an hour back down.

Getting to the trailhead is straightforward. Once you get off the 60 you go about a mile on pavement, then loose asphalt. Then the rest of the road in is about 5 miles of washboard dirt so be prepared. Nothing a little car can't handle, but it does take a bit of time to get to the parking lot.

The trail is pretty easy to follow and mostly marked by its wear. In the few spots it wasn't completely obvious there are kairns ti guide you in the right direction.

Did this hike a week ago and loved it. Definitely a change of scenery. Felt very foresty (as opposed to the usual desert landscape) with the trees and bush, especially at the beginning. Awesome rock formations and views the whole way up. I was worried about the trail's difficulty but would say the trail is moderate and the elevation is gradual. Weaver's Needle is super cool to see too. Loved how "out there" the park felt (as opposed to more urban environments like Camelback or Dobbins Lookout), a total escape. We started at 2 pm, weather in the 60s or so, and almost the entire trail was in the shade, so we got pretty cold at certain points. Wished I wore leggings and brought a jacket. Moderate to highly trafficked. Also, beware that the trailhead is at the end of a 7 mile dirt road. Saw quite a few sedans but would still recommend driving a SUV if possible.

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.

Nice trail, great views, elevation gain not too bad. Only drawback is trail can get rocky in places.

I love this trail. This trail has lots plants and bushes which makes it dense.

Nice hike but very busy. Beautiful views. Easy to moderate hike.

for two 66 year olds it was all we wanted. beautiful scenery

Very rocky , Besides that its a good 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.

I forget how much I love this trail. It never ceases to impress me when you come up over the saddle!

A beautiful hike with incredible views of Battleship Mountain and the Superstition Wilderness. Trail is really well marked and taken care of!

Majestic views!!! It really delivers.

My favorite hike yet. Beautiful up, at the top, and back. Hope to do it again soon.

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!

A great hike today. Love this trail. Dont be scared of it, just get out there and do it.

A nice challenge to get more difficulty & length than the Gateway Loop. It’s a steady incline for a while until you get to the switchbacks. Although it is steep, there is no “climbing” using your hands so it’s not as hard as other trails. I only saw 8 people today on this trail (after you get past the loop), so that was magical! Took me 3 hours which included a couple of breaks to enjoy views and a snack at the top. Def need good hiking shoes as this is rocky!

Nice hike. Moderate.

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.

Fabulous trail. Beautiful scenery. About 2 hours to the top, barring breaks.

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

Great trail with beautiful views up and back down. Moderate difficulty... would be good for kids and people who don’t move as well or as quickly. Lots of rock features and beautiful vegetation all the way up.

The trail is well marked which was super helpful! The trail is rocky but after looking at the reviews prior to going I anticipated this. Good hiking boots and plenty of water are essential. I absolutely LOVED this hike and will most definitely be back to experience more of this natures wonder!

Very scenic hike, moderately difficult, great to watch a sunset

Very doable trail with beautiful views. You do not get to go to the peak ( can go with climbing gear) which was a little disappointing but overall very nice.

So much fun for a quick hike
