Parking is limited so you may need to park at the Jordan trailhead or at the Teacup parking lot and hiked the Teacup trail to Soldiers Pass, which will add over a mile each way. Please visit the park website for more updated information. Great hike with amazing views. You will want to bring sunscreen and water as there is little shade. This trail can also get relatively crowded, check out the waypoints for an alternate starting point if the trailhead marked here gets too crowded. The loop is great either direction, and there is also an optional turn off for the mesa if you want to add a little distance and elevation.Show more

Although fairly short, this trail has to be considered one of the best in Arizona. It is extremely fun to drive and the red rock scenery is knock-out beautiful. This is an extremely popular route and traffic can be very heavy at times. Pull-outs are provided. Do not widen the trail by trying to pull over anywhere other than the pull-outs. You may have to back up. This is also a very popular hiking and mountain biking area, so be alert and courteous at all times. If you park, hike, or stop along the route, you'll need a Red Rocks Pass Located in Coconino National Forest. For current conditions call Red Rock Ranger District (928) 203-2900. Several large rock ledges require high ground clearance but the obstacles are not overwhelming because little articulation is required. The hardest obstacle is called "The Steps," which is driven downhill. This obstacle is very steep and will be intimidating to an inexperienced driver; however, stock SUVs with high ground clearance should be able get down just fine. You may scrape bottom so skid plates are recommended. This trail is very well marked and easy to follow. Show more

Loop Trail is very pretty, but very rocky. It's not a super hard trail from an elevation and climbing perspective, but the rocky terrain can make it more challenging.Show more

The Little Horse Trail begins as part of the Bell Rock Pathway. Follow this wide trail southward for 0.25 mile. Here, at a signed fork, take the old jeep road branching to the left and marked with basket cairns. The road drops to cross a dry streambed, climbs a bit and ends at the 0.75 mile point. The trail continues to the left and climbs moderately, topping out on a large, flat expanse. Turn to the right here. The level trail leads into a stand of Arizona cypress and intersects Chapel Trail about 1.4 miles from the Chapel of the Holy Cross as it nears the "Madonna and the Nuns" spire rock formation. Continue for 150 yards passing the base of the knobs of Chicken Point on the left. Take the path left for a short climb onto the bare rock for wonderful views. This point is used by jeep tours via Broken Arrow Road.Show more

Length: 5.7 mi • Est. 2 h 47 m
From the Dry Creek Vista Trailhead parking lot, you have two choices to get to Devil's Bridge. 1) Vultee Arch Road (Forest Road 152) where you will be spending one mile with high clearance vehicles, and possibly their dust or 2) Taking Chuck Wagon Trail and the connector for 2.1 miles where you will have great views and much better scenery. Dry Creek Vista Trailhead parking has NO fees. The lot handles a fair amount of cars, but it fills up quickly, so get there early. This also allows you to avoid the hottest part of the day as there is little shade.Show more
