The best part of this trail is the start, from the parking lot to the off-shoot to Devil's Bridge. Not many views after that, but a peaceful trail. Empty early in the day but popular mountain bikers later.

Good hike for kids. Decent shade, nice spots to take breaks and beautiful views.

Trail was awesome. Not busy at all, most of the time we were alone. The road is closed so you can park on the street and hike in. Groups of people were at the bridge area, but other than that just about had the trail to ourselves. Beautiful cactus blooms along the way. We accidentally went the wrong way on chuck wagon and turned what we thought would be a 5 mile hike to almost 11 miles, ha so be sure to read the signs and double check your location on the app.

Underrated trail with spectacular Sedona views. This is a much better way to get to Devil’s Bridge than the road. It will take longer than the road, but it is worth it for the views and frequent shade.

Took this trail to avoid crowds travelling to devil's bridge, when we got to the turn off there were still tons of large groups so we continued on to Brin's Mesa. Still managed to see devil's bridge before it got too dark. The walk on the trail was much nicer than the road walk.

I discovered quite by accident. Hiking from Mescal trailhead toward Brins Mesa I turned back after 4 hours of hiking area. Instead of returning on road to connect with Mescal I noticed Chuckwagon. It was wonderful surprise, far better than road covering same ground. A number of Creek bed crossings and gentle slopes that give u a great trip through the high desert valley. It winds up over the valley halfway thru and returns to road. Dry Creek Road hiked like Devils Arch may use trail road 152 but I recommend using surround trails instead of rough rocky road.

Fantastic trail. Wrong time of the year to attempt it. We had to end up taking the road because the Dry Creek wasn't dry and u passable. Great one that I will do this summer.

Really excellent hike for beginners, families with young kids, or those who aren't in great shape. The trail is extremely well marked, pretty flat, and offers a good amount of trees for shade. We hiked between 10 and 12 and we had a nice breeze the whole way, too- made the August temps much more bearable. There are beautiful views of the nearby rock formations along the whole trail, and you really don't see the street or cars until you're right by the parking lot. This was a lifesaver when we want to Devil's Bridge and wanted to avoid the horrible crowds on the 4x4 road. Love this trail!

Enjoyed the views on this hike and like most have said it was a pretty easy hike. We were limited on time so we were only able to do a little less than three miles of it , but was very peaceful we saw only one other couple while we were out .

Enjoyed this hike. Easy family hike or for the less experienced. Other than a handful of mountain bikers the trail was empty.

We hiked the whole loop and skipped the Devil's Bridge add-on (too crowded, we were warned). It was extremely enjoyable, lots of scenic variety, plenty of shady spots. It's an easy trail too.

Didn't get to finish the hike and make it to Devils Bridge. Got a little lost, had to get a ride back to my car and get to work! Otherwise it was lovely!
