Breathtaking - we had to walk around and up this beautiful Vortex. Any description really doesn't do it justice. Must go!

Spent 2 days in Sedona on our trip from Vegas to Phoenix in May. This was a nice easy hike to the base with spectacular views. A must see in Sedona!

Well worth the visit for a nice hike that can be done with family and kids. Or a real climber/hiker can me somewhat challenged as well. And the views are fantastic no matter what level of expertise you have. The only down side is that you do hear some highway traffic nearby from most vantage points. You have two choices... More

There are several trails leading off of the main trail going to Bell Rock. If you drive out 179 you will find an overlook and that overlook has a trail... More

There is a nearly flat trail about 1.3 miles to the back of the rock from the parking area, then you can choose to climb up the rock or not. We climbed up partway. The area is surrounded by other red rock formations so you have plenty to look at and photograph. There is a $4.50 fee to park (buy... More
