We parked at the Bell Rock trail head and hiked in just enough to get good pictures, about a 30 minute round trip. Wish we did the whole thing, but ran out of time. The trail goes around two very large rock structures. Next time we visit Sedona, a must hike!!

This iconic red rock is beautiful in a beautiful setting. There are several trails surrounding it. I did the 3.5 mile Courthouse trail one day, and next day went back for the Bell Rock Loop. Looking for a vortex, what I found was serene views. The climb to the top is possible but probably hazardous. I heard from one woman... More

This is probably the mist visited trail in the Sedona area because access and the trail itself are very easy. Even so, I found that once I got farther along the trail the crowds thinned out and for much of my hike I saw relatively few people. I took the adjacent Courthouse Loop trail and was virtually alone for much... More

Most of the hiking on Bell Rock is easy but the higher you want to go the harder it is only due to the climbing of the rocks. Having someone with you makes it easier.

We started out before sunrise to go near the top. It was an easy hike to the rock. We made it almost to the top at sunrise. An amazing climb and view. Not for people afraid of heights but an easy climb. Recommend highly!

Among the famous landmarks in Sedona. You can't miss it, even from the road, but get out and walk. Bring water if it's warm out. It gets surprisingly hot on the trail. The trail head has bathroom facilities, but not flush toilets. Very well marked trail. Make sure you've purchased your parking pass before parking here.

Relatively easy ascent (we did not go entire way up due to time restraints). Incredible beauty abounds.

Bell Rock is one of those must sees when visiting Sedona. It's a perfect introduction to hiking in Red Rock country. From the large parking lot at the trailhead, it's an easy walk to the base of Bell Rock, with plenty of photo ops along the way. And, it's great fun... and great views... to climb Bell. It's an easy... More

We did the entire loop covering bell rock and nearby and it was 4.5 miles loop. We totally enjoyed it as it had some really nice scenic spots. Most importantly it was not crowded.
