Beautiful easy path through canyon. When you get to sign that reads ”end of maintained path” keep going. Once above the tree line you can see Bell Rock on the horizon. The path is than a bit rugged and a little hard but will get you to the back of the canyon.

Awesome hike, parked at the trailhead and then hiked the long way up past chuckwagon. Amazing views from the arch.

Beautiful and fairly easy hike. Well worth the view from the top. I started early - around 6am and had the summit all to myself for about 30 minutes - by the time I got down many people were hiking the trail. Doing it early is advisable not only because it’s cooler, but also because it will be less crowded. Well worth doing.

Great hike with amazing views. Some steeps spots towards the top so be cautious if you’re not an experienced hiker or not wearing correct footwear. Also, if you are hiking in summer months be sure to bring a lot of water—YOU WILL NEED IT! The bridge at the end of the hike is an amazing photo op and well worth the hike. A MUST SEE!! Love this hike.

On a cross country roadtrip, I made a stop here and hiked this lovely trail. Very different to Washington’s mountains, but it was amazing!
Red sand and views to die for. Highly recommend. Bring lots of water, it gets very hot.

This was a beautiful hike. Be weary of the heat and bring plenty of water if it's summer. The top is absolutely worth it!

I absolutely loved this cave! Such a peaceful place. Google Maps had this updated so that the directions leave you right at the start of 9530. That was as far as I felt comfortable driving my low clearance vehicle. Parking there added on roughly 20 minutes and 3/4 mile in each direction but was totally worth it. I went yesterday in the heat of summer and there were only two others for the 2.5 hours I spent there. The cave was cooler with the breeze blowing in and obviously sitting in the shade. I could’ve spent an entire day just admiring its beauty. I can’t wait to bring out of towners there. A caution though: the road to get there is 10 miles on dirt road. Well maintained by bumpy in some areas. Also, stay low and left when you see forks in the trail. There are tons of them. If you do, you’ll be able to come around the left of the huge slab of rock on a very easy route.

My 6 year old thought it was awesome and fun. We saw lizards and bunnies. Lots of great views of the mountains. (This is her first review on all trails lol) She wants to know what others think of the trail

Great hike up! This app takes you the longer way, but if you go down long canyon road and park in the parking lot it’s a 4 mile hike round trip. If you have a vehicle appropriate for dirt roads you can go right up to the trail head and it’d be about 2 miles round trip. The views were incredible. The trail was labeled well also. Not a huge crowd probably due to the heat in mid afternoon.

Great views,
A few steep segments , but not too bad.

Bridge itself was much wider than anticipated.

Drove to the trail head parking lot with a 2WD not so new with average clearance SUV, I made it in and out OK but I was regretting it the whole time.

Completed Devil's bridge and Cathedral rock on the same morning. Devil's bridge seemed easier to me.

Just completed this trail 6/9/18, and it's a great moderate trail with beautiful scenery.

First off, play attention to the stack of rocks on the trail. (guidance rocks)

Secondly, the road to get the trail is pavement/dirt road. As a Offroading hobbiest *You DO NOT need a 4wd or Awd vehicle*; took a Honda Civic and no problem. If you have driven to Fossil Creek, it is alot less bumpier than that.
Moreover, the trail has a few swimming spots, the first 1.5 mile you will see spots to cliff jump and relax. We were told by several people the trail ended a mile after, boy they where wrong. We ran into *a boulder where the dirt trail ends* what they didn't notice was the trail veers off to the right.
Once you follow the trail you will cross small creek beds. At one river bed you will find a pile of rocks on the other side to guide you. You will find small cave holes, stagnant water spots, and great views of rock deformation.

At the end of the trail you will find a beautiful Oasis. The water is clear with small turtles, fish and crawdads.
*Warning* the rocks are very slippery even with water shoes, take it slow going down as the rocks in the water a covered with light moss.
Enjoy and whatever you pack it in, pack it out!

One of the BEST hikes in my life and it is a little difficult getting in the caves

Nice easy trail. First hike for my 8 year old and he liked it. Plenty of shady spots along the trial. Good intro for kids.

Gorgeous and friendly people. I went from mescal trail head parking.

Great swimming hole about 1.5 miles in on the trail. Took young kids with us and they did fine. Take plenty of water and decent hiking shoes. 4wd vehicle is not needed to get to trail head.

Its very nice once you finally make it to the bridge. Do not go on a hot day because there is not a lot of shade

Great destination and amazing view points! Go early in the summer months. It gets hot and little shade.

Great views and a short easy hike. The bridge comes out of nowhere. A little touristy since it’s easy and people wait in line to have their picture taken on the bridge.

Started on the Dry Creek Road trail - a short walk to the Devils Bridge trailhead. Easy hike. Last 500 feet is a steep rocky staircase but views are amazing

The bridge is an awesome site to behold! Breath taking view!

We were able to park in the main lot and started our hike on the Dry Creek Rd. trail, which adds to the overall length of the hike.

Dry Creek Rd has an off shoot trail that joins the Devil's Bridge trail about 2/3 the way down the unpaved, rocky road that leads to the trail head.

As others have posted, majority of the hike is in the sun, so hydration is critical.

Once you near the top, you must ascend rock formation stairs up to the bridge area.

Our wait to go on the bridge was short, but we past a lot amount of hikers on the way back down.

Plan your hike early in the AM, to avoid the large groups and the heat of the day!
