Great scenery! Enjoyed the trail around Bell Rock and walking through trees, up pathways and seeing all sides of the rock formation. Highly recommend paying attention to the trail markers to ensure you follow the loop and don’t end up on the wrong side of the fence. Definitely worth the stroll!

Had a blast! Totally enjoyed the view and got amazing pictures!

Good hike for the family. There were scenic views once we reached the vortex. The trail itself only offers views of the town, thus the 3 stars.

fun, cant wait to take my friends here

Fun trail, found the sink hole, but the rest of the path to 7 pools were not marked well

Very nice, relatively easy, and short hike. Toward the mountain) or where you might loop back) it becomes a crap shoot as to where the trail goes. Bring the app to help guide you back. Quite lovely!

Great views, easy short trail. Definitely a must do!

Amazing views from all sides! I’d categorize as a moderate trail and make time for several breaks if you’re with inexperienced hikers (especially during warm temperatures). The distance was more than expected.

Very nice trail and pretty easy. A bit hot at the start so take plenty of water. The cool stream at the end is well worth the journey. It was very quiet too - I only came across three people on the entire hike.

Beautiful views, although not as much water and creek as we had hoped. There is not much cover so definitely prepare for the sun and heat. We went on a Sunday around noon and didn’t see many people. Bring lots of water.

Nice morning hike. Start early take plenty of water as it gets hot quick.

very easy, got kind of lost on the way back but fairly easy to get back on the trail

Great morning hike however this has some more intermediate areas and our mileage was over 4 miles!

Gorgeous views but not Easy, should be classified as Moderate.

Took all the kids and had little whining. Fantastic views of Twin Sisters and the Madonna and Child. Chicken Point was a bit crowded with Ponk Jeeps but still worth the views of Village of Oak Creek and Submarine Rock. We couldn’t find the loop part of the hike so we just went back the way we came.

Fairly flat and well marked to Submarine Rock. Make sure you scramble up to the top for some of the best views of the east side of Sedona. Sadly, we couldn’t find Devil’s Living Room - the sink hole - not sure how we missed it.

Excellent, easy, relatively flat trail. Terrific views the entire way. We started at 6am and finished in just over two hours walking the loop.

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.

I agree with the other reviews, this is not a easy hike. It really is more moderate. The trail is rocky and easy to lose your footing. Limited shade. Poorly marked. Make sure you leave out early and hike the loop clockwise to avoid the direct sun. It does have fairly good views of Sedona overall. But I wouldn’t hike it again or recommend it to anyone.

Great views
Poor trail signaling
Not too steep, not too long...
The file on the app was a loop with a "line attached to the loop" I followed that line and the trial ended, and pretty much had to turn right to followed the trail and before I knew it I was in soldier pass spur, which connected to mesa brin , and decided to turn around.
I was expecting to pretty much have the arches jump out in front of me.

Also, parking lot fits about 14 cars I believe...

Do some research If you want to get to the arches or caves, the pass, etc...

Offroad permit required in advance.

Amazing early morning hike. Quiet and cool. The colors as the sun was rising against the hills was stunning.

Great trail from start to finish. Go early and take water. Very little shade on the cliff face but the opposite side by the road has plenty.

If only Tesla made a jeep version this trail would be 5 stars. We thought we got out early enough (7:30) to avoid the heavy tour jeep traffic, but heard and encountered several on our hike up and back. Still a great scenic hike that young kids could do with little difficulty. I wouldn't consider this as easy as Fay Canyon (which is only a slight incline), but I don't recall having to stop to rest. Just stopped to take in the views.

I started this trail but did not finish. It’s relatively easy, but you MUST bring enough water on a hot day. We did not bring enough water, so we decided to turn back, also because we had just gotten off the plane and we’re pretty tired as it was, plus it was very hot. What I didn’t like about this hike is that, truly, it was kind of boring. It’s literally a loop around Courthouse Butte, so there aren’t many other sights other than Bell Rock. It’s also not very well marked, I found it to be confusing.

Easy enough hike assuming it isn’t too warm and the crowds aren’t too bad. We had fun exploring the area and taking in the amazing views.
