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!

This is a great beginner hike to get in shape.

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.

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

This is also known as Shaman Cave! Loved this trail and the view is Absolutely Amazing! Do not turn off of 525C like the directions instruct you to do...follow 525C to 9530 and take that directly to the trail head. A 4x4 or higher vehicle is a must for the last half mile or so and there are a couple spots to park at the beginning of 9530 if you can’t make the drive up to the trailhead but it adds at least 1.5mi to the overall hike. Once at the trailhead, it is marked with piled up rocks...make sure you look for the rocks or you end up like I did on another tail going 2 miles in the wrong direction. it’s a short hike and easy .... I you wish to go to the cave....the small ledge can make some nervous. Totally worth the drive and the beautiful views are AMAZING!!!!!

The trail itself to me was boring. And with the noise pollution of other park goers with kids, it's easy to be detracted. BUT, the horses. (sigh) And sometimes horses in the river playing around. There's just something about the horses that brings me back to this trail almost quarterly. Every time I go, I sit for a solid 30-60 minutes watching them. I typically always bring out-of-towners here if we have time, because the horses are so special and it's not a trail you need hiking or trail shoes for.
If you're not into wild horses, look for a trail elsewhere.
The horses are (unfortunately) people-friendly because idiots feed them. Last year, sadly, someone shot two of them. My point is that these horses are trusting and will come close to you. So please don't give them reason to fear by acting loudly around them; be respectful that you're in their habitat as only a visitor. And, PICK UP YOUR TRASH, this includes orange rinds and apple cores. Do not feed the horses!!
The parking lot is quite large, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding a spot.

Love, love, love this trail. It's a must-do, essential for any passionate hiker in the Phoenix vicinity. ...or any surfers. :) Everyone needs a pic of themselves "riding the wave" at some point to use as desktop wallpaper.
The hike itself is fairly easy, though the last part up to the cave is the most challenging, hence the "moderate" rating. But it's absolutely something you can do, because YOU HAVE TO! Your reward isn't just the view, but the cool air in the cave. It's remarkably cooler. Be sure to bring a lot of water if it's warm out because there's no shade along the way.

Classic Arizona hike that all should do at least once. Well marked, great valley views and a good workout. We completed in less than 2 hours and that’s including breaks to admire the view. Go in the morning, when at least part of the trails are still in some morning shade.

Hard to imagine the views in Sedona getting much better than this. Easy to find the trailhead - just follow the rough dirt 'road' that is accessible only by high-clearance SUVs.

It's a rather easy walk to the vertical portion, and there is some minor scrambling to reach the top. So many trails in Sedona - we picked this one because of the uniqueness, and were rewarded with throngs of people just like us: the trail can be crowded and noisy.

Great moderate hike with great views from the top.

This is an amazing hike because it takes you through so many different microclimates with different fauna throughout the hike. There are a ton of beautiful young ponderosa groves that are magical to walk through. Key your eyes out for baby horny roads of you go in late summer/ early fall!

It was beautiful, but not well marked on how to loop back around. At the point where the trails meet at the top, I ended up unintentionally taking the Aspen trail which took me all the way to the ski lift and sky center, not back to the Marshall Gulch picnic area where my car was parked. I ended up walking five miles along the road to get back to my car after having finished the hike. I noticed a tiny envelope on my windshield and would have given this a 1 star had it actually been a $80 ticket. I suppose they are no longer doing that and instead are giving folks a postmarked envelope to send in the check for $5, which I think is decent since the place to pay the $5 is nowhere clearly marked while driving in.

First time on this trail and will be back to do it again real soon. It was well paved and absolutely beautiful. Was able to bring my dog and he enjoyed getting out of the 110 degree heat!!! Breath taking views, pine trees, creeks, wildflowers, boulders, birch trees, 74 degrees, squirrels, the list goes on. Definitely one of my favorite hikes around the Tucson area.

Great views! Nicely groomed trail. Saw lots of lizards.

Great trail - well marked at the top where trails intersect. I did it counterclockwise so Marshall Gulch first, which is very shaded due to heavy pine forestation. There were 3 creek crossings and water was flowing today when I was there. Temps from 76-80 degrees this afternoon w a little cloud cover so just perfect... Near the top you do see signs of the fire damage. Aspen trail has more exposure, with a mix of beautiful vegetation - ferns, pines, wildflowers and then finally some aspens once you are near Marshall Gulch trailhead. A trail I would love to do again - as another reviewer said, feels more like Colorado than AZ... excited to try other Mt. Lemmon trails now.

I love this trail even though for me it's more of a difficult hike because of all the tricky footing, bad ankles. It's nice and cool all year round, bring plenty of flashlights and sturdy boots, the rocks are sharp and with that in mind I would discourage bringing your pups with you. Last time I went, I had a really nice pair of boots but the upper part was swede leather and some of the rocks tore right through it when I stumbled, not some place I would expose my dogs' paws to, also it tends to get noisy due to all of the echoing so I'd worry about their sensitive ears and if it's worrying to them.

The first 3/4 of the hike is easy. The last quarter is steep a considerably more difficult. Getting to the bridge is well worth it. Beautiful views throughout the entire hike but the last view was unbelievable. Highly recommend checking this off your bucket list!

Trail is great! You will see amazing views of the canyons and Tucson. It is very peaceful and quiet! Take lots of water and be ready for an amazing hike!

Beautiful hike. The bridge is something to behold. We all went out and took pictures it wasn’t till we were hiking back that my daughter says “I wonder if anyone has fallen off?” Be careful, but it is large piece of land to stand on, so it’s not so scary until you see the pictures.
Get there early to avoid the crowd!

Beautiful, beautiful place. Not a super challenging hike, but epic scenery, environs.

Great hike! And great view at the end.

deinitely a challenge at the end up to the bridge portion of the trail, bit totally worth it for the views.

I've heard people in my hiking group argue that this isn't a real hike, which I think is ridiculous. Their argument is that because this trail has a lot of placards along the way, identifying plants, it's more of a walk. I disagree - if you complete this trail to the end, there is absolutely some decent cardio. And, although there is no need to climb rocks, this is a trail that still requires grippy shoes because the texture of the trail is small gravel and loose dirt.
Views are nice, however all are of surrounding neighborhoods - you're not in a remote location, where you'll see minimal signs of life.
I like this trail because it enables me to maintain a decent cardio pace. It goes up, down, up, down. Then you return. This is why it's one of my fav hikes, and I go fairly regularly - it enables me to maintain a decent cardio.
This trail is well maintained with a staffed station at the entry, complete with bathrooms.
There are a lot of parking spaces, and typically I am able to easily park near the trailhead.

Pretty difficult, you have to watch every step. Bring flashlights, wear sturdy shoes, possibly gloves. it's cold down in there. Very tricky footing.

Gotta love this Hike!
It starts out rather easy but about half way you do get a little bit of an incline through big rocks yet it's not crazy difficult to get up to the Cave.
On the day hiked it there was another family with about 6 kids ranging from 14 to maybe 7 years of age, so yeah, if kids can do so it, why cant you!?
Anyhow, the sights from the top are quite nice and definitely one cool cave to go see!

Some rock scrambling, amazing view

Breathtaking. There are so many stops along this trail that offer amazing views.

Couple of pointers:
- if you have a truck/equipped SUV you will be able to take the “road”, Vultee Arch/Dry Creek Road that leads to the start of the trail. This will save you a couple of miles

- bring lots of water

- bring a backpack, you will need two hands to get up and down the end of the trail, very steep

- wear non-slip shoes, the trail is very steep and the rocks are slippery

- the bridge is amazing. You can access it easily from the right side (looking at the bridge). If you are scared of heights don’t worry. Once you walk out you don’t feel like you’re walking on a bridge. It’s wider than you think.

- it would be beautiful to go at sunset

- dogs: great at the bottom and middle of the trail but very steep and narrow paths for top of the hill. We have two German Shepherds who we take hiking and I wouldn’t want them near some of the drop offs by the bridge

Favorite trail we did in Sedona.

Beautiful, green and cool(ish)- a great escape from the desert heat
