It was an amazing experience to be there and see such a beautiful place! It was a lot of fun to do the hike, it wasn’t too hard!!

We brought our own waders to go in the river, and we had no issues with the cold water. However, our feet were a bit sore when we were done. Would have been nice to have the water hiking shoes like the ones they rent out. Beautiful views, and when we started as the sun was rising there was no one else on the trail yet.

Road there was a bit rough, but well worth it. We were the only ones there when we went. Spent a few hours along the trail, and got some amazing photos to remember our hike!

We went about an hour and a half before sunset, and we had the falls all to ourselves when we got there. Long, but easy hike there and back. It got dark on our way back, and the view of the stars was spectacular. Not a light to be seen but the moon and stars. Would love to go back someday and camp. Beautiful sites right along the creek.

We hiked it during a rainstorm, which made it a bit more difficult to maneuver, but we started early and there were less than 10 people at the bridge when we arrived. No wait for pictures, and the fog and mist in the background made the view even more spectacular!

Great hike not too hard, waited to take pics but worth it!!!

Beautiful and easy walk. LONG wait to get on the bridge. Over 45 minutes so we didn’t get on it. But the views are spectacular from the top. It is crowded, however.

Rent the gear!!!! It is well worth the money if you want to get past 2 steps in the river. The views are spectacular and so different than other hikes. Be prepared for extremely slippery rocks underneath you that you can’t see. Start early!!!! Beat the crowds. We went in march and took the first 7:00am shuttle.

Great hike! But many traffic near the bridge. An hour wait to take pictures on the bridge, but worth the wait!

Casual, heavily-trafficked trail that gets more strenuous as the trail gets steeper and narrower. There's a line at the top for the photo op if you enjoy people watching.

Absolutely gorgeous, moderate difficulty with lots of people. The sights are breathtaking.

This trail was great. It wasn’t easy, I’d say more moderate ! A lot of stair like steps to get to the top. Some people seemed to struggle in those areas. Once our group got to the top it was beautiful. We waited in line to get a picture perfect photo. Definitely going again and taking my dog!!!

Didn't like walking along a dirt road that the Jeep's and other off road vehicles also used. It was about a third of the hike. Had to stop and let them pass often. Crowds on a Monday! Had to wait in line (yes you read that right) to get pic on top of Devil's bridge. Beautiful but not a fan of all the people. Kinda knew that going in, didn't think it would be quite that much though. Still a must do if you're in Sedona.

Pretty easy hike . The last .5 miles were pretty steep rocky climb . The bridge was pretty amazing. The surrounding mountains ⛰ were spectacular

This time we didn’t go in the water we just did the riverside and there were so many squirrels ❤️

This is a fun, easy day hike with some truly great views! That said, parking can be a bit of a pain if you don't get there early and the trail can get quite crowded at times. Some of the stair-stepping sections, in particular, get backed-up with people. If you have an off-road vehicle with enough ground clearance, you can have a bit of fun driving through the area, and a bit closer to the actual trailhead.

Excellent trail, a bit busy but enjoyed the voices of the world who were visiting just like I was.

Just as everyone says, great views and overall not bad of a hike. Fairly busy with other people and vehicles passing by if you choose the easier dirt path. The last mile is steep but the experience is great!

First time my husband and I went on an official hike .. I’m 6 months pregnant and in pretty good shape .. it was a bit rough ! But totally worth the views ! The last half a mile felt like it took the longest, as well as the 1 mike walk to the actual trail from the road. So glad we did it though !

Incredible. Completed in October and only wore wading boots (they were my Orvis fly fishing boots) and was comfortable. Feet got a little chilly, but warmed up on the walk back to the Grotto station. One of the coolest things I’ve ever done, hands down.

Literally the first trail I've ever fully hiked. I did not come prepared, and I'm a bigger fellow. I still managed to get up to the top with only a few breaks to catch my breath. The last portion felt like much longer than .5 miles. Once I'm in better shape I'd love to do it again.

nice not too crowded

Super fun lots of Rock climbing!

If you park in the main lot you walk down a long dirt road for a majority of the hike. It is pretty, but a little boring and tiresome (but easy for all ages). Once you come to the stairs that leads you up to the bridge, you get some great vistas or the surrounding mtns. Upon initially getting to devils bridge my friend and I were underwhelmed. We had seen so many magnificent pictures and were expecting more. We moved more to the right side of the bridge area and got much better views and photo opportunities.
BEST ADVICE: go late in the day. As late as you can, we got to the bridge around 4:30 and there was still a lot of people but while walking to the bridge probably passed 30 people who were leaving, so going later will give you the best experience and best photo ops.

It’s a beautiful area

Perfect hike. If you start the trail across from the restrooms, you can get a more scenic start to the hike vs starting at the dirt road entrance. You eventually meet up with the road, but you cut maybe a half mile off of “the boring” portion (not off of total distance) and have a great scenic trail to start off with. As others note, the very end gets to be a bit challenging, but is fun. Amazing views and plenty of friendly other hikers who are willing to take your group picture on the arch so everyone is in the pic! Enjoy!

View is amazing!

Nice quick reward. We got there early 730 and few people were there. When we came back down and explored other trails the place was packed by 10am, parking even on the street.

the first mile along the dirt road is somewhat boring, flat and easy. 2nd mile begins slight upgrade. I would rate this as an easy hike, until the last few hundred feet where you climb natural cut steps up to the bridge. well worth the climb, the views are amazing.

This was a blast.
