5/29/20 First time attempting the hike. Started the trail around 6:20pm-8:30pm. Ended up walking back in the dark. Take a flashlight if you go in the afternoon. Warm and a little windy. Not too busy. Lots of friendly people up there. Take water as well. Bridge was kinda’ scary but it’s a great view for selfies and Instagram pose. Loved it.

Definitely follow this map. Download first bc no service. You go off trail to get here, very easy up until the last tenth of the mile. There also is no trail head for “birthing cave” specifically. So follow this!

We went yesterday (a Thursday) around 12pm. It wasn’t busy as it had gotten a little warmer. The cloud coverage helped. On our way back we it was getting busier. I could tell the trail would be a nightmare if it was busy. There’s a large portion on the way to the trailhead that’s loose dirt. Anytime a Jeep drives by dust is kicked up into the air and you can’t breathe.

Hike 6/26/2020 Very nice trail, moderately easy. Once you get closer the bridge there are many rock steps to climb can be a little rough. The bridge is beautiful and many blooming cactus and wildflowers . Was a little crowded had to wait to climb up to the bridge cause the path had heavy traffic. We went about 830am . Loved the the hike

Nice but kind of anticlimactic. The arch was the highlight of the hike. Trail to the arch is not well marked but it’s not hard to find your way out and back. Climbing up the moon rock was really fun too, maybe a better end of the hike than to go to the very end of the canyon.

I actually enjoyed the side trail up to devil bridge trailhead more than the actual devils bridge trail, although it was still nice. You can get directly to the devils bridge trailhead if you have a good offroad vehicle. If not then can just walk the dirt road to the devils bridge trailhead or take the scenic route through dry creek / chuckwagon trail (adds ~1 mile) - recommend this route. I recorded the hike in 4k so you can view it here for reference: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFCcB03vM-nepESoPJ4KvA

Overall, fun hike. Go early because there's not much shade. The end was quite difficult for my novice level but I just took lots of breaks and took in the beautiful scenery. Lots of wildlife like jackrabbit, birds, lizards and bugs. I'm super thankful for the white arrows along the path after I crossed through the narrow wire gate.

Overrated honestly. If Disney was a trail, this would be it. Everyone told us we had to do this trail when in Sedona but it was slammed with people which put a damper on the experience. Parking was a nightmare around 9am but we found a spot on the street. The most unpleasant part of this trail is the 2 mile walk down a dirt road where you’re dodging jeeps and 4X4s the entire time. Once on the very short trail it was packed with people so much so that we had to wait in line to go up more difficult spots. Views were good and it’s a really great place for pictures but BEWARE, if you want a photo ON the bridge you will have to wait in line. This Saturday it was about AN HOUR WAIT! I say skip this trail unless going very early or during an off peak season.

An UNREAL view. This is a must do trail. The trail up until the cliff side is extremely easy and flat, then the hike up the cliff to the cave is challenging and steep with a lot of cacti and pokey things. Just be careful and take your time. Once up into the cave it’s an INSANE view, but it’s pretty steep and slippery if you start climbing around without the proper shoes on. I was too scared to do anything but sit in one spot but people were walking around. It was pretty crowded (around 15 people) at noon so I would suggest going early in the morning, especially if you want photos with just you in them.

Beautiful lookout at the end of the trail after a short climb up. Accidentally went down the dry creek which does not lead to anything. Hike/scramble up to the arch was not as impressive as the end of the canyon. Don’t forget your bug spray!! So many mosquitos.

The first mile and a half or so is easy and beautiful. Once you have to start scaling the canyon wall, it gets rocky/ scrambly. Even to a seasoned hiker, that part is NOT easy at all. Moderate is a stretch, but there are spectacular views if you can manage the climb. No shade for that part also. Super early, or else sunset hike is the way to go with this one. Unless you prefer baking in the midday sun. Overall I was a little disappointed because I did not see any waterfall. ? My guess would be it's only present after big rains or certain times of year. It is a beautiful hike, but "features a waterfall" is not an accurate description.

Went at sunset and the views were unreal. We luckily had the canyon all to ourselves. The trail is so easy if you just follow the app. We took a wrong turn and quickly noticed and backtracked. Not hard at all. Barely a scramble for the last 5 minutes. Great sunset hike. I’m on Instagram @cyndila if you want to know more :)

The best! One of the most amazing places I’ve ever been!

if you manage to get here when there isn't a crowd, it's a decent trail. the views are mediocre for Sedona, honestly looks better in pictures. if you get here when there is a crowd, the cars line up for miles on both sides of the road. It is like going to the mall during the holidays. If your goal is to get a good Instagram picture and crowds don't deter you, it's a sufficient hike. if your goal is to enjoy nature, go really early or really late.

Great trail. Try to start by sunrise. No tree shade in this trail. Mountain shadow is comfortable in the morning time.

Start early, it gets very hot and there is no shade until you get to the cave. Very steep and rocky at the last incline up. I would almost rate the last half mile of the trail hard! Some parts of the trail are hard to follow so the app map really comes in handy. Views were amazing and the wave was so fun!
