When reading up on the trail to this rock formation I found an article that said “the rock will guide you”. And that’s exactly how it went. There are two parking lots you can park, the one closer has a fee. The trail to the rock was signaled well but as you get closer to it you kinda let your instincts and the rock guide you as you climb it. I made it all the way to the top. It was amazing, please go on this hike, it will change your life.

Hard to follow. Seems like trails and cairns went off in every direction once you hit the steep rock scrambles. Need better signage.

Love this trail! Make sure you climb up to the top to write a note in the notebook. Love the ammo bin idea. Super creative and memorable ♥️

Once you get to the good stuff near the steeper parts, the trail markings disappear with no warning or sign that says “End if Trail” like other hikes in the area. So we spent a lot of time trying to find the next marker/rock pile thing, and we never could and gave up. We wanted it to be exciting and rewarding to get to the top but we never made it due to uneasiness and confusion.

It was our first ever hike in Sedona last 2015 when we moved from Malaysia. Been there again this year but i haven’t truly get the right feel, i mean it has splendid view all around but we haven’t hiked it like we did with the other trails. Anyway, it is a good hike for families with small kids or babies if one would like to carry

Took Bell Rock Loop trail right up the face of Bell Rock. This is a tricky scramble in places and more tricky coming down but an awesome experience nonetheless. I went around to the left side too, to get better views of the Courthouse. Wonderful. Be careful, enjoy!

Fairly easy/short trail that leads you right up to the rock. Was great for stretching the legs driving in from phoenix.

Incredibly strong vortex combined with stunning views. It's a little bit of a climb to get up to the strongest point of the vortex. Once you're up there though you are rewarded with amazing views. We also hiked all around the belle along the rocks.

Beautiful views to he north. It's a challenging trail and climb but well worth it. How high you go depends more on your nerve than it does your physical ability.

Take the time to climb up a ways, absolutely worth it for that view.
