We did this in January , so there was considerable mud and at the higher elevations, it was very icy. It's a fantastic hike, but based on the weather and conditions, please make sure you have the right gear - at least the basics. (hiking boots, walking stick, water, dress in layers, etc). We entered in at the Mescal trailhead... More

The road to the trailhead is very rough and a high clearance 4 wheel drive vehicle is needed to get back to the trailhead. The trail had lots of hikers on it. It was also quite icy near the top(bridge) and many hikers came down on their rear because it was slippery. Further down the trail the frozen ground began... More

This trail is a great moderate trail but I want to warn the travelers that are going by local hiking books that were written before 2014 which is around the time a new parking lot was put in right by Dry Creek Road and 152. Now you start your hike right where you turn onto the old dirt road and... More

Every travel writer seems fixated with Devils Bridge. The trail is over used and at times dangerous. The road to the trailhead is for the most serious high clearance, four wheel drive vehicles despite assurances to the contrary by writers. The new trail head is always full ans 3/4 mile farther than the original Trailhead making the one way access... More

We had a bit of a challenge finding the ACTUAL trailhead and following part of the trail when you get up closer to the bridge, but the view and spectacular natural arch/bridge are worth it !

The trail to this destination is breathtaking. Towards the end their is more advanced rock climbing, however it is not extremely difficult. The end result on the ridge is well worth it!!

We went in May and it was unseasonably cool which made the trip that much better as we were not scorched by the sun. The trails range from easy to moderate and it is fairly easy to follow the trails as they are marked. Def bring a walking stick as some of the trails can be quite unsettled and if... More

The trail itself is not that great - there are so many better ones in Sedona. This is compounded by the fact that you have to park 1.5 miles from the trailhead and walk down a boring dirt road (you could drive it with an off-road vehicle or ATV). Once on the trail, the first half is also not that... More

We went in January and the trail was closed but we decided to hike until we were turned away. We were able to go all the way even though there was snow and ice on the trail. Worth it!
