Worth the crowds. Parked at the mescal parking area, had to cross a lightly flowing cold creek to continue on to the main trail. 90% of the trail is very easy but with stunning views the entire way. The last little bit of ascent is a little tricky and was scary to me as I have a phobia of heights but totally doable.
We parked in the mescal lot and did the chuck wagon trail to devils bridge trail. It had fewer people. More mountain bikers. The actual devils bridge trail is quite short with some areas having steep stone "steps". It wasn't crazy busy as we went on a Friday in March around noon. It was perfect weather and some really great views. We had to take our shoes off and cross a river right by the parking lot and it was fun. Enjoyed this hike.
