Located in northern Arizona, Coconino National Forest is a 1.856-million acre forest that surrounds Sedona and Flagstaff . It is one of the most diverse National Forests in the country with landscapes varying from Red rock, southwestern desert, ponderosa pine forests, alpine tundra, and ancient volcanic peaks. Coconino National Forest borders other nearby National Forests, including the Prescott National Forest, Tonto National Forest, and Kaibab National Forest. The park also encompasses portions of ten wilderness areas. The park is divided into three different districts, the Flagstaff District, the Red Rock District, and the Mogollon Rim District . Each of the districts contains its own unique landscapes and environments. The Flagstaff district contains Arizona's highest peak, Humphreys Peak, which is part of the San Francisco Peaks, and the San Francisco Volcanic Field. In this district you will find lava fields and underground lava tubes, including Lava River Cave. Mormon Lake can be found at the southern portion of the district, as well as Ashurst Lake and Marshall Lake, which are located along the Anderson Mesa. The Anderson Mesa is best known for the Lowell Observatory. The Red Rock district sits near Sedona and contains the canyons, mesas, and famous red rock formations Sedona is known for. The most notable sights include Devil's Bridge and Cathedral Rock. This district also contains Oak Creek Canyon, which is one of the most popular attractions within Coconino National Forest. Oak Creek Canyon has a beautiful display of fall foliage, making autumn an excellent time to visit.

Great trail. well marked, a bit of scrambling along plenty of vertical. family of 4 did it in 3:20, but moved at a good clip.

The directions from this app had us parking in the lot that accessed Munds Wagon trail off Schnebley Road so we did the Munds to Hangover to Cowpie loop. Vehicles traveling on the road parallel to Munds were seen and heard, but once you get onto the Hangover trail, they were not a factor. I agree with other reviewers...would definitely go clockwise and start with Hangover as I would not want to come down the Hangover side. It was very steep going up. Wear shoes with good grips on the soles. Go early! We started at 8am and hardly saw anyone. Was an absolutely gorgeous hike and we loved it. Total distance was 9.1 miles because of the additional Munds trail. It took us 4 hours but we took lots of photos. Highly recommend!!!

Devils Bridge was beautiful. The hike in wasn’t fun. A dirt road in that had the Jeep tours that kept passing and kicking up dust. Once we finally got to Devils bridge the view was great. The overcrowding, people in every picture you took and the long line up just to take a picture on the bridge, not so much. Stay away, unless you go early.

Loved this hike and its beauty. My husband and I got to the vortex spot and sat for a while and took in the beauty that surrounded us. Good place to get to and explore the surrounding area. The downside is that there are a ton of people and people who have no trail etiquette what so ever. Other than that it is a short and sweet hike.

This is a beautiful hike! Pretty mellow with views everywhere! Can’t wait to go back!

Tried to do this hike 4/22/19. FR 420 was closed at Highway 180 so there was no trail access unless you hike from Highway 180.

This trail I would recommend for people who are not afraid of heights and are experienced hikers. I took my grandma on this hike and she thought she wouldn’t make it. But me being a little more experienced w/ hiking went all the way up to the top and wasn’t impressed. The line to get on the bridge was verrry long and I went early on Easter Sunday. The climb up was hard and there is only one main way up and one way down. Not to mention the whole way there are Jeep Tours blowing dust in your eyes. But overall very pretty views and a good way to get yourself out into nature!

We had a really nice hike after breakfast at the Mesa Grill. Agree that the trail is not marked really well but it’s not that bad either. If you are using this App then there’s no problem with trail marking. It’s leisurely and the views are great.

Nice, quiet trail. I was thankful to have this app so I knew where exactly the trail goes as near the end it was a little questionable... lots of wild flowers! HOWEVER! Be cautious! We met a friend in the cave... a large, very healthy rattlesnake. (Hiked on 4/18/19) Fortunately I saw him as soon as I came around the corner of the cave and I’m not easily shocked... I simply backed right out. But things could have gone quite differently. Just be cautious!!!

Pretty easy stroll...currently flowers were blooming

The end of the trail leading up to the bridge is pretty steep, but the bridge is impressive! It gets pretty crowded up near the bridge, and the line for pictures grows as it gets later...so we suggest an early start! Getting down that steep part is slow going, but manageable. We parked near the Mescal entrance...about 4.4 miles round trip from there.

Awesome hike!

The app doesn't show the best rout up to Devil's Bridge. Instead, take the Chuckwagon Trail from Dry Creek parking lot until you see the sign post with Devil's Bridge and a right arrow. Heading back, the trail is right down the path to your right. The signage says strenuous, but though it's longer, it's shady and lovely.

The road to get there is very bumpy, it took about 45 minutes to get there, plus 40 minute walk to the end of the amazing waterfall, definitely worth it!

great hike to bring a picnic and some vino and watch the sunset. be aware of mountain bikers.

The trail is not bad. However, we got lost several times (I had a tracker running all the time). The residential area is all fenced, so no way to short cut. The loop itself is nice. There are a couple of benches to take a quick break. We haven't met anyone during 3+ hike.
