Explore the most popular cave trails in Arizona with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

We hiked it during a rainstorm, which made it a bit more difficult to maneuver, but we started early and there were less than 10 people at the bridge when we arrived. No wait for pictures, and the fog and mist in the background made the view even more spectacular!

Great hike not too hard, waited to take pics but worth it!!!

Beautiful and easy walk. LONG wait to get on the bridge. Over 45 minutes so we didn’t get on it. But the views are spectacular from the top. It is crowded, however.

Took the kids today for spring break 2018 and they loved it! The cave was awesome and any trail with lots of climbing rocks is a hit with them. The are 7 and 9. We did the whole thing in about two hours(including exploring the cave)

Great hike! But many traffic near the bridge. An hour wait to take pictures on the bridge, but worth the wait!

Casual, heavily-trafficked trail that gets more strenuous as the trail gets steeper and narrower. There's a line at the top for the photo op if you enjoy people watching.

Absolutely gorgeous, moderate difficulty with lots of people. The sights are breathtaking.

March with Michael, took 70 minutes walking fast to get finished before sunset. Great panoramic views.

Great views from top. Challenging hike, but worth it.

A nice hike. It took about 2 hours to go round trip. Narrow path and fairly busy today but everyone was courteous and shared the path. I'm relatively new to hiking and I wasn't sure what a moderate rating would entail. It was good altho you need good footing and you need to pay attention to rocks and uneven ground. All ages were on the path.


Roughly an hour loop including times I made a wrong turn and/or stopped for pictures. Got way too excited seeing a jackrabbit along the trail.

Such a beautiful place to go and see nature. The hike in was roughly 12 miles in (not the 10 everyone says). We checked in at the village and were on our way. There isn’t any signs along the way to let us know we were heading in the right direction so we used other hikers as our “guides” to know we were heading in the right direction. When we reached the first “fall” it was a disappointment (only because I thought that was where we were suppose to be and that was it). Keep going, pass the signs that say “Dangerous Unstable Ground” and pass the grave yard. When you are getting nervous you will never make it, just go a little further and you are there. This place is totally worth the sore muscles and exhaustion. We did put up our tent in close to the Natural Spring water (really made life easier to be so close to the fresh water). The hike out is daunting, tiring and makes you question every poor life choice but when you reach the top and are back in the comfort of your own vehicle, it makes you feel accomplished. Wear good supportive shoes, take ONLY what you need and hand sanitizer NEEDS to make it in your pack. Females, be prepared to “hover” in the bathrooms. Most importantly....enjoy the place....it’s absolutely beautiful and magical.

Love it. Beautiful views, good trail run.

This trail was great. It wasn’t easy, I’d say more moderate ! A lot of stair like steps to get to the top. Some people seemed to struggle in those areas. Once our group got to the top it was beautiful. We waited in line to get a picture perfect photo. Definitely going again and taking my dog!!!

Didn’t get to finish it, but will definitely go back!

Didn't like walking along a dirt road that the Jeep's and other off road vehicles also used. It was about a third of the hike. Had to stop and let them pass often. Crowds on a Monday! Had to wait in line (yes you read that right) to get pic on top of Devil's bridge. Beautiful but not a fan of all the people. Kinda knew that going in, didn't think it would be quite that much though. Still a must do if you're in Sedona.

Took my older parents, they loved it. A beautiful, easy walk. I continued on past the maintained trail. You can climb up along a cliff line and it does not disappoint. The view is spectacular, you can even see Bell Rock in the distance.

Loved it, not a lot of people around. Will definitely do this again.

Pretty easy hike . The last .5 miles were pretty steep rocky climb . The bridge was pretty amazing. The surrounding mountains ⛰ were spectacular

We hiked up to the very top past the tunnel. Good fun.

It was an amazing experience!

We did this as a family hikes with 5 adults and three kids (3-7 year olds) The older kids walked all the way to the top of the cave and bottom! Wild squirrels were a joy to see and the winding trail and large climbing rocks was an excitement for us! Definitely a must and favorite!

I would call this difficult, not moderate. There are portions you are climbing over small boulders and the incline is INTENSE. Our large dog came with and did great but smaller dogs might need help. Had to stop and rest 5 or 6 times on the second half going up. Definitely a good challenge but I wouldn't attempt this if you are out of shape!

LOVE this trail! It's long and somewhat challenging with the ever present incline. The scenery was amazing. The trail was very dog friendly. Definitely worth going all the way to Massacre Rock. The trail does get pretty narrow in places and a little steep here and there but nothing above a moderate rating. We did lose the trail once and got started down a different trail going the wrong direction so use your map if you can. There were many places where the trail would split and meet again on the other side of a rock. Bring lots of water and sunscreen. We did not see any waterfalls but could tell where there would be waterfalls if there had been heavy rain. Everyone we met on the trail seemed very friendly. Definitely plan to go back.

good trail, rigorous hike

This is a fun, easy day hike with some truly great views! That said, parking can be a bit of a pain if you don't get there early and the trail can get quite crowded at times. Some of the stair-stepping sections, in particular, get backed-up with people. If you have an off-road vehicle with enough ground clearance, you can have a bit of fun driving through the area, and a bit closer to the actual trailhead.

Excellent trail, a bit busy but enjoyed the voices of the world who were visiting just like I was.

Just as everyone says, great views and overall not bad of a hike. Fairly busy with other people and vehicles passing by if you choose the easier dirt path. The last mile is steep but the experience is great!

I got to this trail around 5:30pm and got to the top at 6:10 right during sunset. I will say, I've had better sunset hikes. If you are looking for a good sunset I would recommend squaw peak over this view. It is cool to see the day & night changes. You also see how polluted the valley is. The hike in itself is good and will get your heart rate going. If you are here at night, make sure to take a friend with you as the area can be sketchy. It is pretty well marked but definitely bring a headlight or flashlight so you don't lose the trail back at night. If you're a beginner, the trail might take you a while. For any avid hiker, I would say it is easy-moderate.
