on Devils Bridge Trail

Beautiful views from the bridge, other than that nothing too wondrous on your way up.

Great trail. Stay off the road. Ha! My recoding was cut off. I should have downloaded the map lol

Fantastic trail, but the last half mile is pretty strenuous and terrifying. The views are worth it if you can persist. By far the most challenging but rewarding hike I’ve ever done. It’s longer than advertised here, more like 5 miles. The first 2 miles are a series of switchbacks that get very steep in places and never seem to end. These stop at Scout’s Landing, where many people turn around after taking in the views. The last half mile is mostly climbing. Proper footwear and plenty of water are essential, and do not bring small children or pets. We are 50 and in decent shape but not used to higher elevations, and it took us 4+ hours round trip, which included plenty of stops and a slow pace thanks to my fear of heights. So glad I did this. But it really is every bit as scary as advertised, so don’t take it lightly.

Did this trail last year in November! Start early as it gets crowded on the chains section! Very strenuous but the most amazing views! Don’t attempt this if you’re scared of heights!

The walk back to the actual climb is long, over a mile itself. If you have a 4x4 you can drive all the way back, otherwise you’re walking the first leg. The actual climb itself is narrow and daunting in some areas but you aren’t crawling up a rock. The view at the bridge is great!

Should be listed as moderate.

Great hike as it showed just how varied and beautiful the landscape is in Zion National Park. I would rate easy-moderate. Don’t forget to take some of the side trails to the canyon rim on your way up and back
Saw very few people on the East Mesa part but the final approach and point are busy.

We came to devils bridge via Chuckwagon trail which is delightfully easy and beautiful. Devil's bridge was incredible and totally worth the journey to the top where everyone helps each other get that perfect pic. 16km for the total trip.

Great hike, go early to avoid the heat. Amazing views once you reach the ‘bridge’. Could be a bit challenging to climb for some

I did this hike on Thursday, Nov 8. I started around 9 and it took a total of 3 hours. 9 seems like a great time to start as there weren’t that many people around while going up - definitely got crowded while I was coming back, I did a lot of waiting for lines of people to pass as I was descending.

The hike was very fun. Obviously you have to be smart on this trail but there was no point where I felt like I was in danger. Stay on the correct side of the chains and be sure of your footing.

Don’t make the final push to the summit if you’re having second thoughts. Scouts Lookout has a great view as well.

Don’t feed the chipmunks.

Completed this hike back in October and it is truly magnificent.

I had read previously about the parking and crowd. So we were the first to get there at the Long Canyon parking area just before sunrise. That turned out to be a great decision because we get to see the sunrise between the rock formations. The trail was rocky & offered much interest through a creekbed & fantastic vista points. Climbing up to the bridge and bridge itself were highlight for sure. Pay attention to where the trail intersects the wide jeep road so when you return from the bridge, you don't miss the trail. Good to have GPS and map since this was our 1st time there, and some parts on the rocky trail was not a clear trail to follow which way to go so early, without other people to follow.

Went there 2 days ago and loved it. We had rented a jeep, and it was worth it to drive almost 1 mile in and then hiked the rest. Came across a couple from Florida who walked the entire way, and the happily joined us in the jeep for the last park of the trail down. Lucky for them because it became very windy and dusty as we finished the trip.

Be daring and walk out on the arch (it looks worse then it is). We took pictures and had a good time with strangers we had never met.

Nice short hike. Beautiful colors. Would love to see in the spring with more runoff.

I did this hike in August because Angels Landing was closed. It’s a steady climb of switchbacks with spectacular views. Midway is a slot canyon with shade and a nice stop for photos before continuing to the summit. The temperature was reaching the 90s. Take 2-3 liters of water and snacks. I arrived at the summit at lunch and it was very crowded. I found a relaxing spot to enjoy the views over Angels Landing and watch the tourists taking pics and face timing friends. Round trip was aprox 4 hours. Fantastic hike!

Wanted to do some short hikes before we drove back to Vegas. The upper and middle pool trails were closed due to rock falls so that left the lower pool. It was Ok. Real easy. I will say the fall colors were really gorgeous on the trail! Other than that, the pool at the end was nothing special. If you have time to kill and want to get in a short hike, I would recommend this one.

Did this trail the other day. Started the trail at noon and finished right before 3pm. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a crowd perspective, but there seemed to be more people leaving then going up. This is a tough trail that kicked my butt! I did the observation trail in the AM and this one right after, so I was a little more exhausted for this trail than I would have liked to be. Def worth doing at least once!

Surpassed my expectations. The devils bridge arch is spectacular, but the hike in was much lusher and diverse than I had anticipated.

Great hike!! Did this hike a couple days ago and the weather was perfect! Started right before 8 am and finished right under 4 hours. Spent about 20 min at the top. Was only 2 other people up there. Amazing views! Glad we did the hike when we did before it warmed up. The second set of switchbacks was tougher than the first. As soon as we finished this hike we went and did Angels Landing. I thought this hike was better and is def my favorite in the park!

Go early like I did to avoid major crowds. First shuttle is at 7 a.m. If you consider yourself a hiker you should do this at least once. Not as scary as I was told it's easy to feel safe and stable in my opinion during the part with exposed cliffs and chains to hold on to. Gorgeous views most of the way and the colors were turning with the best view of the hike at the summit. Hope I can go back and do this again sooner then later

Awesome hiking take good hiking shoes and water.

Great hike, well maintained. Bring plenty of water as this is strenuous. I am scared of heights, but the trail is sturdy so I did not have any difficulties with the drop offs at points. Bring a pair of hiking poles!!!!

Stunning! Drive in as far as you can if you want to save some time. The walk in is what takes the most time.

One of the most epic hikes in Sedona

Pretty easy hike. Too scared to go stand on the bridge though. My friend said it was wider than it looked. Awesome views.

This trail is fun and simple! Great cool down/warm up. The rock can be slippery when wet so watch your footing! The upper pools are closed due to rock falls in July.
