Loved the hike. The start of this hike could be a little tough mainly because it can be challenging walking in the sand but once you pass that part, the rest of the hike is easy IMHO. We finished the hike in 2 Hours and that includes the 45 or so minutes we spent at the top taking photos. We visited first thing in the morning in November and had the place to ourselves for a good 15 minutes. The views as is obvious in the pictures are awesome. This hike is a must on your Sedona/Arizona itinerary.

Take the off road trail, it’s a little longer but well worth it. The hike is not terribly hard, as many said, but the top is a little tricky. I had a 2.5 year old on me & am 4 months pregnant and was able to navigate. Seriously GO EARLY. Since it’s so popular there are tons of people and many who do not respect the basic customs and courtesies of hiking, which gets extremely frustrating when trying to navigate the more award parts. Some parts are not clearly marked so it’s easy to get off trail a little but it helped to expose some extra views.

Great trail, did it 3xs while out in Sedona for extended weekend. We were in our 97 TJ with 4” lift and 35s. Some nice brief challenges, but scenery was awesome. Each trip was different part of the day (morning, afternoon, evening) as the shadow lines and scenery looks different - as well as the trail lines along the rocks look different as well. Got some great photos. Most of the Pink Jeep Tour guides were cool, we usually gave the right of way to stay in good spirits, they were always good to let us know how many behind them as well. Will do again when we go back.

Awesome! Not too difficult. Well worth the view!!!

Great trail! Not too difficult and the view is definitely worth it.

Amazing views!

Beautiful hike. Go really early to get a good parking spot. We got there just before 7am and were back to the car by 9:30am. It was packed when we came back. The hike gets a little tricky near the end, but it’s definitely doable and very rewarding. Can’t describe how amazing the view is. Also, the bridge is a lot wider then you think, so just enjoy it. Highly recommend.

So incredible! The hike is not too long, and the views are nothing like we’ve seen of Sedona. We will definitely want to do this again. Near the end the climb is pretty steep, but going on the actual Devil’s bridge seems scary but is so fun!

Easy hike for us. We are of moderate fitness. We started at mescel parking. It took us about 40-50 minutes to get to the bridge. We started at 3pm and we got to the bridge there was only one other couple there. Didn’t see any snakes, unfortunately!!

Just do it as much early during the day for the bridge view

To echo other reviewers: start from Mescal trailhead and enjoy the nice hike to the Devils Bridge trail rather than walking on the road. Yes, this is super popular but for a reason. This is overall an easy trail but requires some agility towards the end. Saw many dogs and children. We did run into a large snake but it was not a rattlesnake.

Great hike, very scenic and not too difficult. That sun though, bring ample water. There is some trees for shade which is nice. We were there on a Wednesday in early May, there were only 4 cars in the lot around 1PM. But the lot is not suitable for RVs/Vehicles over 20ft. We parked our 25ft RV about a mile up the road by the Sedona Dog Park and walked to the trailhead. Not too bad. With the walk to the RV and the trail, plus stops for photos, took us about 3 hours.

Moderate to easy other than last 500 meters which was technical.

Great hike. Took the reviewers advice below and started at Mescal trail head. There was way more parking and the 1 mike hike to the bridge trail was scenic and (more) shady. Awesome views.

Definitely one of the least enduring hikes, but has one of the best views in Sedona. I've been on 95% of all the trails in Sedona and this is still one of my favorites.

I live in Sedona and this is no longer an off-road vehicle 4x4 trail. They closed it off because people were complaining about the noise near their houses. You can still walk through it though.

Very beautiful scenery. Easy for the first part and definitely gets more difficult on the last part to the bridge. Well worth it!

Love this hike it’s super easy good for beginners with lots of trees and easy route finding

Pro tip (and one I wish I listened to in the beginning) is to park at Mescal Trailhead instead of the Dry Creek trailhead (the one that the All Trails app navigates you to).

Chuck Wagon trail is much nicer than walking on the stupid road for a mile.

None of the trails are difficult at all. The only strenuous part is the last 0.25 miles where you are going up, but there are many super nice views to stop and take a breath.

Loved this hike! Perfect for a short half a day jaunt, with the wonderful arch at the end. Easy and multiple options to turn it into a full day.

One of my favorite hikes in Sedona! This is a short hike once you get to the trail head. Hiking back to the car from the trailhead feels just as long as the hike itself (if you are like most of us who don’t have 4wd and have to park in the lot rather than at the trail head). But the trail is beautiful and it’s only 3/4 mile to the arch. The last 5 mins are straight up so stick with it. It’s so worth it! The arch is breathtaking and totally worth it. My kids have done this hike several times and love it.

Fine view but semi anticlimactic for me. Not the best marked trail I’ve been on.

Nice easy hike with awesome views. My pup loved it

Cold and wet! But that didn’t stop us! The views are unreal. Check the forecast before making the trek out and dress appropriately! The first part of the hike is fairly easy but closer to the end, the incline gets ya!

Great way to end our time in Sedona! The hike was nice and very scenic. The 360 views were amazing!

Great hike with beautiful views! We started in the late afternoon (on a cool day in the fall) and the trail wasn’t overly crowded. The last part of the climb up to the bridge requires a bit of scrambling up some steep stone steps, but the rest of the trail is a breeze.

Really beautiful trail and well kept. Breath taking views 360° around you. Great nature shots and the bridge was so cool!
