Just did this trail and loved it! It’s not difficult from an elevation perspective but there are a few tricky spots to maneuver. This is different in that there aren’t any “overlook” areas like Garden of the Gods, but there are many beautiful rock formations along the way. Trail is really well marked.....just follow the blue markers.

My favorite part of Bell Smith - swim every year at Devil's Backbone, it's gorgeous!

Definitely wear long pants as the trail gets pretty narrow at times. The small canyon or whatever it is, is pretty cool and worth the hike out to.

Trail features the largest natural bridge in the Shawnee and a cool barren area. The ladder is probably the most efficient way to reach the top of the bridge.

The trail is difficult in some spots but for the most part it is easy walking..A few great rock formations and a natural bridge are among the highlights..Trail is marked well until it comes to a sudden. turn ..we got turned around a couple times but no big deal. Definitely worth your time to hike.
