One of the most recommended hikes in Sedona/Oak Creek area. Starts with very rocky road to walk for a mile to trailhead. Cars will not make it on road so do not try! Hike starts reasonable and then a bit of scrambling but at top it is beautiful and a bit scary to walk out on bridge.

The best is at the end of the trail. No climbing involved but does have a lot of rocks that are like steps that elevate you quickly near the end. Bring water and don't be afraid to ask a stranger to take your picture when you get to the top. Make sure you walk beyond the bush on the bridge... More

We drove our Yukon all the way in to the interior parking lot with no trouble. The hike was a little difficult towards the end. Some of the step ups and kinda high and we got a little winded (I'm 125lbs carrying a two year old on my back). The bridge isn't scary at all- it's wider than all the... More

be advised not to attempt to drive to the trail head in a regular vehicle. a truck, suv, or vehicle with extra ground clearance is recommended. not a difficult hike in or out, but not for young children (athletic 12 year old's and up), spectacular rock bridge at the end.

We've done this trail twice now, this time we took the lower trail that takes you below the bridge. We took the trail instead of the road, take the trail from the parking lot. I checked the weather and it was supposed to be cloudy, so I forgot to bring the sunscreen anyway, we got pretty sunburnt and now I'm... More

This hike has the rewards at the end of an incredible, sublime scenic view atop the bridge. It is not very challenging, though for some adjusting to the altitude level of 4500ft can be a little difficult. Unless you have a 4x4 car, you have to park at overflow parking, and walk through the sandy, rocky road to the trail... More

Awesome moderate level hike. I will say that if it's a really hot day definitely bring extra water. It's a decent distance from the parking lot. My sister in law fell into a cactus while on the hike but that was poor clumsiness. You have to make it to the top though. The view is worth it. Go out on... More

we hiked from the parking lot and found it to be rather hot and tiring. as other reviewers have noted, take plenty of water. freeze an extra bottle for the hike back to the car and have a couple on ice in a cooler in the car, you'll want them. the last part of the hike is hand over hand... More

If you have a a high clearance vehicle you can drive to the trail head and it's a mile up and back (steep at the end). Otherwise you can park at a lot just off Dry Creek Road and hike to the trail head. You can also go via the Chuckwagon Trail. You MUST wear proper hiking shoes and carry... More
