Awesome !!

Gorgeous canyon trail. Very little water unless it's early spring or there was recent, heavy rainfall so don't bet on the falls being active. Very easy hike, not much in the way of elevation gain until the very end. We did this trail in late May, started at 8 and finished around 11- any later and it would be too hot because there is almost no shade. I suggest taking the shuttle, it drops you off right at the start of the trailhead instead of walking about a mile on a paved road. This would be suitable for beginners in the cooler months.

Winding path through Aspen's, Meadows, Forest, boulders. Remember to smell the woodsy air. The trail is well marked too. It's amazing. we missed petrographs though. we would go back again. We signed in at the trailhead. The sign says we needed a permit until April 15th but we didn't do that since it's 70 degrees, sunny and others were out there. we saw coyote tracks, fox scat but no elk. Maybe next time.

Really nice trail if you have a dog at the North Rim. Yes, as the others said, you do not get canyon views, but it is really nice nature and pretty simple hike that starts and ends at the visitor center / lodge parking lot. Technically, the first 5+ miles of the Kaibab trail you do not see "the Grand Canyon" (you see another canyon) so enjoy the dogs in the park!

Tried to hike it in 5/25 but there is a ranger turning people around saying it's closed due to fire danger.

Beautiful views, very steep towards the top. long walk to get to trailhead but was fun. watch out for cactus, I lost footing and fell I to a bush and ouchie! Easy run down :)

this was a bad hike. there is horse poop everywhere. although we saw some horses it was smelly and there were a lot of flies.

I echo the Apple Maps problem. Even after reading the reviews I still missed the turn off and immediately saw that the route was inaccurate. Make sure to watch out for the turn off when you get 1.5 miles away from the trailhead. The hike up the trail was pretty easy but the spot where you are supposed to go right and head toward the cave is not well identified. I used the All Trails app to navigate when to turn off and it worked perfect. Once we got to the rock we did find that the only path in to the cave was a trail that leads you to walk around the side of a rock that looks worse than it is. But this was the only path to get in to the cave. The views once you get there are awesome, great pictures, and just very peaceful. Well worth the long drive. This was our last hike before traveling back home and we couldn't have picked a better one. Highly recommend!!

May 16th 2018. Yes the road is rough and narrow going in but totally worth it. The aspen are not quite yet fully leafed out and wildflowers haven't arrived but still a great hike and absolutely beautiful!! The elevation will leave you gasping for breath if you're not used to it - 9780 at the meadow - but it's a steady climb and never steep so just take it slow and enjoy the scenery.

Easy trail for the most part. Not always well marked. Got off the trail a view times, but found my way back. Good trail for your off workout days. No shade, very hot in the summer.

This was an enjoyable hike! Clean, scenic, and it was really cool to see so much wildlife!

Awesome! Falls were dry but it was still beautiful and fun. :) The Pomeroy Tanks were gorgeous, walk further back to see water lilies and frogs.

Awsome, easy hike. Gorgeous views at chicken point (end of broken arrow). Recommend doing it. Do it early as it gets busy and there isn't too many parking spots

The southwest point of Mescal Mountain is a fantastic place to watch a sunset over the valley.

great trail. all day affair for me. 3l of water worked. shaded most of the way.

Loved this trail! So scenic the entire time! A little longer of a hike than the trail map says. It’s about an 8.4 mile hike in and out.

Beautiful views of Tucson and nice cool air. Mostly dirt trail vs. rocky. Feels like I’m in a different state, more like Colorado.

This was a pretty good hike. We drove our Outback a little ways on the 4WD road,finally parked it, and walked the rest of the way. Not too many ATVs or other vehicles driving past and when they did, they weren’t going super fast. We had our 22 pound dog with us and he enjoyed the hike as well. It did get pretty steep up near the top and we actually ended up carrying him a ways because he got scared and we didn’t want him to bolt and jump off. Once at the top, we did have to wait in line for our chance on the arch but it wasn’t too bad. We went around 9:30am and by the time we were done there was a huge influx of new hikers on the trail. Recommend going early to beat the crowd. Well worth the hike as the views from the top are gorgeous!

Such an awesome and varied hike! You cross over a creek 13 times, overlooking canyons. It’s one of the best hikes I’ve ever been on. It offers something for everyone - trees, water, beautiful birds, fish, the canyons I already mentioned and so much more. It’s also quite shaded which is quite different than other hikes around here. Only negative thing is this hike can be crowded, even on a weekday. Still worth it!

Excellent hiking trail and if your looking for a challenging hiking trail then this one should be a your bucket list.
Great views! Well marked trail all the way up. Definately well worth the trip!
4hr way up! 2hr 40min way down!

please be sure to acclimate for a day or two if you are not a resident of higher elevations. made it to the top, but felt early stages of elevation sickness and immediately descended. trail is well marked and somewhat busy even at the top, cell service 95% of the way. sunscreen recommended, even with the tree coverage i was burnt through my shirt.

Nice hike!!!Turn right out of the parking lot cross the bridge to the dirt road on the left go up the hill and the trail is on the left,right across from the small campground!Great walk dog loved it!!

FYI: I was planning on hiking this trail over memorial weekend but just received an email that they are closing this area on Wed May 23, 2018 due to wild fires. Anyone who have bought a permit will be refunded. Will plan to go again when they reopen.

This was a great and challenging hike. We decided to take the Chuck Wagon Trail the whole way to the back Devil's Bridge parking lot from the Dry Creek car parking lot. This added at least a mile but it was gentle terrain, both up an down, and avoided the sand and rocks of the Dry Creek Road (upon which we returned). In hindsight, if we'd have had the time we'd probably do the Chuck Wagon part in both directions. You can go on Chuck Wagon to about half way up Dry Creek and then take the road the rest of the way to the beginning of the Devil's Bridge Trail. Or you can continue on Chuck Wagon until one end of it exits at the parking lot.

The hike from the 4WD parking lot seemed longer than 0.7 miles (what they have posted). The beginning is a gentle upward incline but it gets steeper as you get farther along. The stone stairs are steep and there are 2 sets of them. But we did see some elderly people on this hike so if you're careful and take your time and are used to doing some walking, you can make it.

The views are gorgeous, as are most views from Sedona trails, in my opinion. The arch itself was fun to walk on and to take photos from. We went later in the afternoon so I only had to wait for 2 people ahead of me before I got my turn on the arch. We had our large dog with us and he had no trouble with the terrain or distance. However, even if it's not a hot day (as today was not), take plenty of water as the Devil's Bridge trail is fairly exposed and it can get windy too (Chuck Wagon Trail has more shade)

Sweeping views from the North Rim. Short stroll, worth a stop.

Easy hike, with a great payoff at the end. Take the time to explore around inside the caldera, and see it from different vantage points. Trail is pretty exposed midday, but there are pines at the end - good place to have a snack and cool off.

Wide, well-marked lasso trail. Never saw another person on the entire trail on a weekday, early afternoon hike. Lots of up and down but no scrambling.
