Climbing Bell Rock was my first experience scrambling and it was so much fun! Like a wild jungle gym. Didn’t make it all the way to the top but pretty close. I plan to give it another go before the end of my visit :) There is a $5 daily Parking fee but parking was a breeze. Went on a Tuesday late morning.

Super cool trail, little kid friendly. Steep but easy to climb rocks. Great views.

the trail getting to Bell Rock is a fairly easy path. Once the climbing starts it can get steep but it's easily traversable.

Short little hike up to the base of Bell Rock, stunning views from up there. Very easy hike, great for the whole family. If you want something more challenging you can keep climbing as much as you want really!

Fun, short hike which is perfect for a young family with kids. The kids will enjoy climbing on the rocks at Bell rock. Wear a hat and use sunscreen because you're exposed to the sun almost the entire time.

beautiful trail. some challenging spots. came across two tarantulas- one walking towards bell rock along the trail, and one coming back. i could have done without the near-heart attacks, but the scenery made it all worth it

Great young family hike. My 5 yr old boy didn’t have a problem. The 7 and 11 yr old loved climbing the rocks on bell rock. The 2 yr old had a hard time deciding on walking and riding in the kid carrier backpack. Everyone thought it was fun and it was a nice activity for 1.5 hours.

Had so much fun exploring Bell Rock. Going up was too much of a challenge so my dogs and I took the scenic route around. We had lots of fun exploring a path less traveled and took our time fitting in some tight spots. Would recommend!

Bell Rock is a great playground. You can hike around it easily, or you can climb as high as you like - with some difficulty. It's rock scrambling on the higher levels. Wonderful views from all levels. Only problem is parking. Better get there early. If the main lot is full, you can try the Yavapai lot on to the other side of 89a, with a trail of about a mile under the highway to the Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte area.

Very fun trail. Can make it easy and walk around bell rock or scramble up to one of the lower towers. Need a parking pass for $5. Would recommend to do this after doing Cathedral Rock.

This trail was great because it is what you make it. If you want a leisurely walk, it’s great. If you want to scramble and play and jump around....also super great. Beautiful views all around and a great spot to sit and ponder your existence.
