It is in a beautiful area surrounded by amazing vistas. There are hiking maps posted so you can decide which level of difficulty you wish to pursue. Be careful though because you can easily get off the easy one (which wasn't that easy) and on to an intermediate one which we all felt was a little more strenuous than we... More

The Bell Rock trail is a great moderate level trail that takes you up the side of Bell Rock! Fantastic views can be seen as you hike up the trail - you will not be disappointed!!!

Where you can be one with the rocks. So peaceful there. If your lucky they will have Native Americans selling their jewelry on the paths so take some cash.

This hike was not very tough, but completely worth it. Views are amazing. The views are breathtaking and really make you believe in a greater power.

Minutes from almost all hotels in Sedona! A MUST drive and gorgeous- but parking is not free. We did drive into the lot and parked for 2 minutes just to snap some photos!

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.
