Pretty easy hike with a fairly steep incline at the end. The views from up top and the “devils bridge” are pretty amazing. Most of the hike is along a dirt road.

Awesome trail. Tricky in some spots as markers are not very clear. Breath taking view from the top makes it all worth it. Bring plenty of water to hydrate.

Hiked with our 8 and 13 year olds and they did just fine. We did go off path to find the secret cave and that was quite an adventure. Definitely a good choice for a moderate hike and beautiful views.

Nice relaxing stroll through Verde Valley history with excellent Forest Rangers! Very educational with preserved Sinagua dwellings and rock art. Not to be missed!

This was my first hike! It was beautiful, peaceful, quiet. Definitely made me fall in love with hiking and solidified the reason I moved to Arizona. It rained a bit, but it was still so much fun and an amazing first experience.

Great hike. moderately easy. The first half of the trail is not as interesting, (if you park in the main parking lot and walk, it is a ways until you get to the trailhead.) However if you have a 4x4 vehicle - you can enter the dirt path from the parking lot and drive up some to the trailhead and park- it will save you 30 minutes of not a lot of excitement before you get to this amazing hike. Views are stunning at the top. Cheers!

great views

Great hike, but don’t forget your raincoat like I did. Busy in front, but as you make the turn toward Courthouse it breaks off and your the only person walking, except the newlyweds walking hand in hand in the rain. Great Hike if your in the area

Although very popular, this is a very beautiful hike!! The views along the whole trail are spectacular. There are some slight changes in elevation here and there but nothing too difficult.

Incredibly beautiful with great photo ops along the way and especially in the bridge itself! Moderate level, took us a total of 2 hours from parking lot to trailhead to bridge and back. (It was also lightly raining so that may have affected our time).

Wide path, rocky in spots, steady uphill. Closer to moderate especially last 1/4 mile. Great view payoffs at Chicken Point. Fairly steady traffic.

We did this hike after climbing Cathedral Rock. Lots of trees, nice path, beautiful river and beautiful views along the way.
We weren't really sure where we were going initially but the trails are well marked and of course All Trails helped too

Great trail for sunset but don't wait to late to do the full loop it gets dark fast and it's a rocky trail. Take a headlamp for extra caution.

Great hike! Saw a coyote when we first started out on the trail. Nice views from the summit. The path was decent and easy to follow throughout.

More moderate than expected, due to the rocks and uneven paths. Trail was easy to follow. Wouldn’t do it again but the views were nice.

Most beautiful hike I have ever done! going from fall to winter was breathtaking. Highly recommend. Part of the hike was a steady incline but very worth it.

Got lost! Never made it! No idea why we couldn't find it. One day I hope to return and see it.

Nice hike. Not too difficult but the incline and abundant loose rocks make this more moderate than easy. It not hard to slip on the loose rocks

Great hike ! Beautiful views - moderate level

Easy hike with great views!

Absolutely gorgeous this time of year. The Aspen trees are so colorful and make for an amazing hike. Also, make sure to go the entire hike or you will be extremely disappointed. Once you make it up the large hill and round a corner and start to see the snowy capped mountain it opens up onto a beautiful colorful meadow — KEEP GOING! This isn’t the end. Follow it into the snowy mountains you will eventually see the trail continue and hike into the snowy beautiful mountain trail (if it’s still there) what a beautiful treat!! We lived this trail. With the colorful Aspen trees and fresh snow— seems we picked the perfect day!

Not sure why this notes the trail is closed. It was open and had half a dozen hikers out on it. Dog friendly too. Great moderate hike with beautiful aspens and dense forest. The drive back to the trailhead was a bit rough but no four-wheel drive needed.

Im not a fan of switchbacks but this one only switches a few short times. Beautiful views to the west on the way up. Also up on the mesa you can walk around and find a million spots to sit, eat lunch and soak in the Sedona views. Moderate only in that there are a few spots where you need to climb up some rocks to get to the too. My wife is a little afraid of heights and some areas made her nervous but she made the entire hike and enjoyed it.

First hike we did in Sedona. Very easy. Beautiful views of Sedona and the canyon plus we saw a few coyotes which excites things. Will certainly do this one again.

Pretty straight forward hike. You can drive down dry creek rd to the trailhead if you want to shorten the hike and get more time for other things. Not strenuous. Very cool views at the end and of course you need to walk across the bridge. Rock/stairs at end can be slippery so be careful.

Do not drive this road in rain unless you have 4WD. Listen to the ranger.

nice trail, lots of great views all along the trail plus variability in the terrain. takes longer than you think - the highest point you see from the trailhead is only half the distance and half the altitude of the mountain.

easy climb to spectacular views. map trail ends at top but keep going on the trail across the mesa.

The guy who labeled this one “moderate” has an outstanding sense of humor. The Hangover part of the hike is not for the feint of heart. That said... Totally worth it. Just be prepared for a couple of moments when you think you might plummet to your death.
