Moderate hike, some elevation. Take lots of water and a snack if you are going all the way to Courthouse Loop. Shorts and boots are a good choice...plus a hiking stick.

My wife and I enjoyed our first Sedona hike on the Bell Rock Loop-Courthouse Butte Loop trails. We started at the Court House Vista parking lot not knowing what we were getting into. Instead of climbing straight up the mountain like numerous others, we chose to stay on the marked trail. The loop was about 4 miles and pretty well... More

First time I traveled to Sedona and loved it. The scenery with the hills and rock formations is absolutely amazing!!! I wanted to go on the trail, but realized the time and saw how long it was, but will definitely be returning for this one. We paid the annual fee so we could park because we plan on returning, but...

Baby Bell Rock is a mound of rock to the north of Bell Rock. It is a lot less visited than Bell Rock. The views go in 360 degrees. It can be climbed to the top on the West or East side. Once on top you receive a panoramic view of Bell Rock, Courthouse Rock, Cathedral Rock, the mesas to... More

Park in the lot for Bell Rock Trail, get the permit from the machine for $5. Flat, easy trail towards Bell Rock, but it's hot...bring lots of water. Beautiful scenery, my daughter and I waited on a bench under a shade tree while my husband climbed up the rock...not for the faint of heart.

Every visit to Sedona I go by myself onto Bell Rock and just climb as high as I can and sit and look out at the fantastic view of Red Rocks. Its a wonderful experience.

Wife really wanted to do the hike, I was already tired. But after 90 minutes of getting there it was hard to believe that $5 could buy you those kinds of views. We took the easy hike but towards the end climbed off train and uphill, not for the klutzy or out of shape! The views are simply amazing and... More

You have alot of choices when you get to the parking lot. You can take some great photos without going anywhere, climb the rock part way, or take a longer easy walk around this mesa and Courthouse butte. We did limited climbing and then took the walk around the rock. Beautiful views. Lots of wildlife and gorgeous wild flowers (it... More
