Wow...loved this hike. We drove to the trail head parking and had to walk in about a mile to get tot the turn off. But that was ok because we went early...like 7:00 and it was not too hot yet. The hike up Devil's Bridge in nice. Keep,looking up though so you can see the bridge. Climb to the bridge... More

We made the hike to Devils Bridge this weekend and enjoyed the trip to the arch. We drove our small SUV down the jeep trail and had no problems at all on the trial. the worst part of the trail is the first. The hike from the trail parking was about a mile, and very steep at the "stair's" portion... More

Try to do this on a weekday morning when there aren't so many people, or in the winter if Dry Creek Road is open (I drive to the trailhead in my 4WD truck). The last time I hiked this short hike it was so crowded I had to dodge families with multiple children, dogs, etc. Nicer if less people around.

We hiked Devil's Bridge Trail in the afternoon in early-April. This was our second hike of the day, as Soldiers' Pass/Brin's Mesa was our morning hike. We had to park in the parking lot on Dry Creek Rd because we had a sedan. We walked along the road until we got to the Devil's Bridge trailhead. The road was extremely... More

We woke up early to do this 3.8 mile hike. The trail itself is .8 one way, but we had to hike the access road too because we didn't have a high clearance vehicle. Nice and shady in the morning and not crowded! Be careful when on the bridge! There was some rock scrambling at the veery end before the... More

If you have a high clearance vehicle and can drive to the trailhed on FR152 (Dry Creek Basin Road), DB is a 1.6 mile RT hike that is moderate in effort. If you do not have a high clearance vehicle and have to park out near Dry Creek Road Parking LOt, you need to add another 4 miles round trip... More

Water, water, water! Pack some serious water because you will drink it. If you, like me, are worried about the facilities and needing to go to the bathroom all the time, let go of your worries, the Arizona dry heat will soak the moisture out of every corner of your body and you will need that water for that the...

this si a 2 hour circular walk from the Mescal trail head car park (high clearance only down to the Devils Bridge TH.) There is a very steep 400 foot climb at the end that could be described as a scramble. Take plent of water as it get's hot in the middle of the day.

We hiked all the way to Devil's Bridge. We didn't park at the first parking lot b/c we had been told it was a rather boring mile walk to the actual beginning of the hike. However, YOU MUST HAVE A 4WD SUV!! Even with one, we came close to getting stuck once. It's a bumpy drive for sure! I had... More

We did this hike yesterday morning. Had read earlier reviews to leave early but we're on vacation and didn't want a 'schedule'. We got to the trail head about 10AM and returned approx 2 hours later. It was not unbearably warm but only because there was a brisk breeze, which later turned into wind. Be sure you have plenty of... More
