First, the formation looks like one of those Christmas bells that you hold by a handle on top and ring, musically. Second, the steep sides present a myriad of ways to climb and enjoy. Third, the Courthouse loop trail that circles Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte is an easy, but long and hot, stroll that gives you a 360' view... More

This is a beautiful natural red rock marvel. Huge bell shaped natural red rock is worth visiting. Visitors need to walk about half a mile to reach this place and enjoy it from near. One can also see this from far if you are not able to walk on the gravel path. The hike is very good and can climb... More

For years, we have hiked all around Sedona, but this was our first time hiking on Bell Rock. I am glad we did it. While the views are impressive, there are lots of people here.

Quite the scramble up the face of the rock, but it was fun. Views from here are pretty good, but not like Broken Arrow.

Well marked trail, about 4 miles if you do the Courthouse loop too. Popular trail but not crowded. Parking can be tight on weekends and holidays so getting there early is key. Trail is an easy run with some ups and down. Good trail to break you in for hiking and running Sedona.

Before we moved to Sedona permanently, I'd come for few-day visit. One night at midnight I was out on the Bell Rock trail under a full moon. I didn't go far and was with a friend. We were breaking in my new buffalo-horn rattles (naturally shed) which had Herkimer Diamonds in them . We rattled to the rhythm of the... More

Our first stop after the ranger station,a wonderfull introduction to the sights of the Sedona area. We walked around and part way up the rock,the higher you went up the better it got. Well worth the stop

We went to bell rock for some hiking and it was fun. We bought a red rock pass from a gas station but we didn't need it because we had to park down the street in a residential area and walk to the path because the parking lot was full. So I suggest you go early for a parking space.... More
