Pretty easy hike. The only “challenging” part of it is the final 1/4mile or so, which has some stairs to climb. The first 3 miles are used regularly by off-roading vehicles (generally pink Jeep tours). We started the hike early at about 6-615 and on our way back there were floods of people making there way up. Early bird catches the worm on this hike.

Stunning hike! We started at 7 AM, which made for a pleasant hike up. Wouldn't start too much later than that as the trail was getting hot and crowded on our way down. There were stunning views throughout, and some welcome shade on trail.

Loved this hike. We got there a little before 7am and it was perfect. Only one other couple at the top. The view is spectacular. With some breaks, it took us about 2.5 hours and is a little over four miles here and back. Truly wonderful!

Incredibly popular for a reason, the views are great. For the life of me I cannot figure out why anyone would rather walk up a dusty 4x4 road vs coming in this route on an actual trail.

This is a fun trail, and although it is popular, the traffic didn’t cause us any problems. Other than a couple of steeper points close to the end that might require you to use your hands, it is easy. The view up by Devil’s Bridge is fantastic and the bridge itself is fun to go out on, and not as scary as it looks - it is deceptively wide. Just be careful as the slope doesn’t flatten out much on the area around the bridge and it is a long drop if you lose your footing.

Great hike with beautiful views. Challenging for some near the top (steep rock steps). Quite a few people walking across bridge, but I was not one of them. Crowded due to Spring Break but well worth it!

Great hike for just about anyone, however, the very end may be too steep for some. Beautiful views from beginning to end! Keep a look out for the wild pigs, they don't bother you if you don't bother them, and they are fun to watch.

We parked at Long Canyon TH, then hiked over to Mescal TH and then on Devil's Bridge. Lots of mountain bikers, but they were really polite. Trail was quiet, until we got to Devil's Bridge...that was very crowded with a lot of families. Went on a Sunday morning in early March.

Great hike! Arrive early to avoid the crowds. The sun rises behind you so some photos may turn out darker. If you get photos from the left when facing the bridge you will have less sun effects. Very pretty views along the hike. You can off road part of the trail but you'll want a high clearance vehicle. We started it in our 2012 Grand Cherokee and decided to turn around about a quarter to a half mile in. We were dragging some and didn't want to destroy the jeep.

Very touristy. The first mile is just a stroll through the woods. The last 0.6 mi or so is a bit more inclined. The “stairs” at the very end were cool too. There was maybe 40 people at the top, many of whom were waiting in line to get a photo taken on the bridge. I think this particular trail is preferable to walking along the ATV route, no dust gettin’ kicked up nor ATV’s ripping by you! Overall, scenery was pretty unreal.

The approach to the Devils Bridge trail head is a meandering trail with little elevation gain, a walk in the woods. Getting up to the Devils bridge is quite a cool rock feature to see and maybe get your photo taken on.

Excellent hike with an AMAZING view!! I would do this hike only from this approach.
