Beautiful hike, the creek was amazing & clear like the name, but there is a place into the hike where you can't cross the creek so it will cut the round trip hike to about 2 miles. Still very picturesque w/lots of red rock bolders...The drive getting to the Trailhead is difficult, a high clearance vehicle with rock type tires are highly recommended.

the walk to the trail is easy and the trail is easy to moderate. there was great weather and desert views.

Great views as you gain elevation, and hieroglyphs are worth the effort.

A great day hike. Only slightly challenging at times.

Rock part of trail slowed down the run and trail signs aren't the best but it's an awesome trail.

This was an outstanding trail. Everyone stops at the overlook or the lonesome pine. Seeing the Needle from every side is truly a gift. Around every rise or outcropping was a new breathtaking view. I cannot day enough about how beautiful this area is. No need for a permit. The park ranger was waiting at the trailhead and said they no longer charge!

No running water, just a few stagnant pools. The hike itself is beautiful, inclined most of the way there. A must do hike for Southern AZ.

Great hike! Parked at Mescal trailhead and took mescal and Chuckwagon trails to Devil's Bridge trail. Wonderful views and much better than walking the dirt road the 4x4s and Atvs can go on. Last part of trail is a series of rock steps. Steep but doable, perhaps with a rest or two for us not so young and fit. Payoff is terrific. Wonderful sandstone arch and great views. Trade cameras with others to get a pic on the arch if so desired. We went midweek January day,
Mid day / early afternoon. Only about 10 people at the arch at any one time, better than weekend crowds we'd heard about.

Could be a great combo hike/trail run
Some bikers on javelina.
Decent parking that includes dirt lot.

Cool views decent hike

Excellent hike to get your hiking legs back. Elevation is just enough to get your heart pumping and the views are incredible.

Loved it❣️My Favorite Hike so far

We were road-tripping from Kansas and didn’t take into account that we were going to be in Sedona on Martin Luther King Day. *cue anxiety attack* as beautiful as the Red Rock Secret Wilderness is, the crowds were sickening, the drive was backed up, we couldn’t find any of the trailheads, and the trailheads we could find were at “full” capacity and FINALLY parking was a nightmare. After stressfully driving around for over an hour we got a spot at Little Horse trailhead.

If we had went on a day that wasn’t so crazy and touristy I would have given it 5 stars. If I’m ever in the area I would definitely go back. The trails were so worth it and our dogs loved it. This trail doesn’t take you up close and personal with the rocks but you get some great views and it made for an easy 5 mile hike after the shit show of the crowds. Definitely a must go if you are in the area but probably not on weekends or holidays. Such a cute little tourist town with lotsssss of shops but I usually travel with friends and dogs so we like the more outdoor/middle of nature scene with a light amount of people on the trails.

Blacketts Ridge my favorite hike!

Wonderful light hike. The trail is mostly level, with only a few short slight inclines.. Some sections are a little narrow - and others a little rocky. However, most sections are smooth & broad enough for two to walk side by side. My wife and I walked the full Campbell Loop in a little more than 2 hours. We met 4 or 5 other hikers and 4 or 5 bikers in that time. There is minimal road noise from the I 40 which is just north of the most outbound sections of the trail. A few squirrels, plenty of birds and other tracks everywhere... Enjoy!

Hiked this mid-January to the munds mtn trailhead, honestly not worth it. It was rugged, poorly marked, overgrown, and very challenging. Most of the trail is either soft sand or loose rocks, not easy with so much gain/loss. Also, it wasn’t very scenic, except the last half mile or so, but if you hike Schneblys Hill you get to the same munds trailhead and the jacks view anyway. I hiked schneblys back down, way better.
Pluses were perfect weather and not a single person until way down the other side of Schnebly. Very quiet and peaceful.

Too many people for me to really love it, but had a lot of fun and is a good hike!

It was a bit crowded but the higher you go the less people are on the trail. I think I counted a dozen people at the top. Like other people have said, pack more water than you think you will need and a light snack. I wouldn't recommend bringing a dog unless it's a very cool day, there is very little shade along the trail. We ended up going off trail and blazing our own path about 3/4's of the way up, it's easy to lose the trail markers as you get fatigued. Going down is easy and yet harder at the same time because your legs are shot from the trip. Overall it's a killer hike, amazing views.
