This is a steep but a short hike. The trail offers a great view from the top. This is a heavily traveled attraction.

Amazing hike! First time in Sedona. First hike of the trip. Maybe there will be better ones, I'll see but this is going to be hard to beat. Came in from Long Canyon Rd. Was very nice!

Upper third is great. Some rock scrambles made it fun. Bridge at top is awesome. I took the chuck wagon trail out of parking lot and came back via the creek bed trail to check it out - not that nice at all and lots of foot traffic. If you have a bit more time and want a very nice scenic trail to begin take chuck wagon. It's very easy with trees and shade etc. Upper part is a bit more difficult for the beginner but intermediate and advanced hikers will have no problem.

I only give it a 4 star rating because the first part of the trail uses the 4x4 trail and it is wide, hot, and boring. Once you get passed that it's great.

It's a great trail, very pretty, but from the trailhead parking take the Chuck Wagon trail to the Devil's Bridge trail. Once on Devil's Bridge trail, it's well traveled. I saw only one other person on the Chuck Wagon Trail, very nice and quiet (& that was on a Saturday morning)

loved the hike. if you drive a high clearance vehicle you can skip the first half mile or so. it was very hot and dry. Breathtaking views at the bridge. Sat there for a while to try to take it all in. Lots of people on the trail but wasn't bad and people all took turns on the bridge and offered to take pictures of us on the bridge. I would have been nervous with my kids at the top but it was fine for me and my wife. She thought she would be too scared to cross but ended up doing it and loved it. Bridge was wider than it looks.

Great trail. Well used and busy but gorgeous! Fairly easy trail but can get a little hard testify the end. Make sure you try it out

Gorgeous views of the valley. Don't be fooled by the short distance (4 miles) in afternoon sun and heat you need to bring several water bottles. Not much shade throughout the hike. As others have mentioned pretty flat until the last 5-10 minutes of the hike. We got to the peak around 4:30pm and no one else was there. We only saw about 10 people total on the trail.
