Not a hike-easy walk. Interesting site. Not self guided. Be sure to arrive before 2:30 as they close up at 3.

Ancient Sinagua Indian site. Very interesting with friendly volunteer guides. The five mile unpaved road was rough on a normal car.

My wife and I did it right before the sunset. It opens up into flat ground at the top which would be fun backcountry camping. It was a short 50 minute hike with multiple stops. About .7 miles in length to the top.

SO AWESOME!

Took me 2 hr and 15 minutes in total to finish the loop.

Love it! Will come back and climb the rock!

A little challenging scramble. Worth it if o get to the saddle. Great views.

Fun trail with a great payoff at the end. About 4 miles RT. Have to scramble up a little at the end. Not siuitae for young kids or dogs in my opinion. First mile out is hot with little shade.

Great views. Must go to sacred pools in the spring.

Just completed this hike. And it was phenomenal! One of my favorite hikes in Sedona, debating between this and Devil's Bridge. Very well shaded trail with plenty of creek crossings. I would rate this hike moderate based off distance, but the actual hike is relatively flat. We stopped where the water was getting too deep, but you can go a lot further based from what we heard from locals. Be sure to get to the parking lot early as it does get really crowded. An absolute must do hike if you're in Sedona!

Absolutely worth it. Parked further away, and had a nice long walk before reaching the "climb" upwards.

Worth the short, quad busting ascent, and there aren't too many better places to finish in Sedona if you're looking for a great view.

Always a treat! the first time I did this trail was in October and I ran it. the trail is heavily trafficked. surprisingly it wasn't too busy. Out and back 7.42 miles.

One of sedona's best hikes, but be sure to leave plenty of time.

there are really three parts to the hike to know and plan around. The first big climb up to the bench, part 2 to the summit trails, and part three which is typically a quick 10 min to the Sedona lookout, or another 30-40 min to the north lookout.

if you really want to explore the best parts of the hike, plan lots of extra time!

Super nice seven mile hike on maintained trail system. Many stream crossings and 800 foot rise hiking in.

Fern, oak, elm and pine primal rain forest setting. Inside protected wet canyon under canopy of trees.

Grapes, black berries and small apples all good to eat on the hike.

Stream crossings are slick and mossy. I witnessed several slip and falls.

Great hike. Takes about 4 hours if you don’t take breaks.

It was raining on my hike and was super nice.

Great hike with great views. Hiked out to both overlooks. Got pretty warm on the way down

Decent hike, super congested. Views are great but better ones can be found in Sedona

Fun hike with beautiful views throughout

My kids 7 & 10 loved it, as did the adults. It’s a little intimidating at the end, but worth it! He most challenging part is the last 1/4 mile so even if you think you can’t make it, keep going!

Nice hike, beautiful views.

Favorite hike in Sedona with breathtaking views at the end. Worth it to take a high clearance 4x4 to avoid the additional walk from the parking lot to the trailhead which is easy, but rocky and somewhat boring. Fairly easy for most of the hike until the scramble to the top which requires some pretty fun climbing to the summit.

Highly recommend this beautiful hike.

Had a wonderful day exploring Sedona, including a hike up to Devil's Bridge. Absolutely breathtaking views!

A bit crowded by the beaches but nice walk under the trees.

Definitely worth the views at the end. I can get vertigo with heights and steep elevations. I almost didn't make it to the top because there is a steep rocky scramble just before you reach the bridge but a lot of people of the trail encouraged me and helped me through. Glad I did the whole thing! There are a couple of great lookouts on the way up to stop and rest. The trail signs recommend you bring 1 gallon of water, I had about 70oz and drank every drop in the heat during May. No bathrooms on the trail of course but you'll sweat it out anyway! Bathrooms are available at the parking lot. There are a couple of trails that can all lead to Devil's bridge so just be sure to remember which way you came/went. I think most of the trails lead back to the same parking lot so if all else fails just walk the ORV path back and you'll find the parking lot.

A little disappointing of a hike for Sedona standards. The trail is closer to 6.7 miles and the best views are near the beginning of the trail. It is well shaded in the trees, but pretty boring. There is a pretty good view of the canyon at the end of the hike, but I would recommend a different hike in Sedona.

absolutely loved this Trail. A little more traffic than I thought it would have especially in July. Make sure you have plenty of water -there is no reliable water on the trail. I repeat- bring plenty of water, a cover for your head, and long sleeves. don't feel like I need to say it but make sure you bring sunscreen. The trail is pretty easy to follow there's one place within a mile up, go to your right although theTrail looks like it should go on the left-- that's the only hiccup

We start the loop by Adobe Jack trail because there is no fence so you can start it before the gates of soldier pass trail parking open. Otherwise this trail is quite flat and the last portion is a little bit boring you follow houses, electric installation and the highway. Maybe the ground central trail is a better option, to skip this last part.

amazing views at the end of the trail ! I don't consider this trail as streneous, but start it early because there is no shade.

Devils Bridge Trail was worth the hike! It was easy to find. Google maps will lead you to the Devil Bridge Parking Lot where passenger vehicles must park. There is a road that goes to the trailhead but it is only for jeeps and buggies and other vehicle s similar to that. There is a parking lot and it was free and a few spaces when we arrived around 2pm. Not many people were there the day we went which was Thursday a weekday. The trail does not start at the parking lot. There is a dirt road which must be taken in order to reach the trailhead. This road is not difficult. It is flat and very rocky but doable. The trail head for Devils Bridge will be clearly marked. I would say 70% of the hike up is easy to moderate level. It is a slight incline with lots of rocks. Just before the bridge the trail is moderately difficult. There will be stair-like rocks that take you all the way to the Bridge. Be careful on these rocks because the sand is fine therefore making the rocks slippery. I am 21 and have not exercised in a year and am scared of heights however this trail was easier than expected and shorter than expected. We went in August so the weather was nice with partially cloudy and partially sunny. Brings lots of water. I went with four people and we each drank 3 16oz bottles.

I was extremely nervous to take this hike because of some extreme reviews. However if you are in good health and good spirit then this hike is definitely a must do! I enjoyed it and the views were worth the climb!

Nice hike, great views. Loop is not clearing marked

Do this hike every year we go to Sedona....its easy enough for small children who love the rock scramble up to the beautiful vistas. sunsets are spectacular! every year we try to get higher than the last year......can be crowded at times but if you can only do one hike in Sedona, this is the one! we usually go in July and while it's hot, it's pretty easy if you are in reasonable shape. Enjoy!
