I hiked Bell Rock Pathway yesterday... from the Bell Rock Vista Parking Lot to the Little Horse Parking Lot and back again. It is 3.7 miles one way. Great views, easy path to follow and friendly people on the trail. I am planning on going back later in the week to hike some other trails in the same area.... maybe... More

There is a fairly large parking area off of Hwy 179 just north of Bell Rock Boulevard which will provide visitors with a gorgeous view of Bell Rock. Bring your camera because this welcome point to the red rock majesty of Sedona will be just the first of many areas that you will want to preserve through photography.

easy access, very gently ascended to a ledge, great sunny day, very busy with other tourists but that did not bother us.

This was the first hike we did while visiting Sedona. We didn't have to park since we were staying close by & just walked to the trail. The trail it's self was easy & beautiful. But our favorite was climbing up Bell Rock as high as we could. So many different options to get you to the top of this... More

This is the second time I hiked this area. It is important to note that there are three parking lots that you can use to hike in the Bell Rock area. The people at the visitor center are not very forthcoming with that information. If you want to hike up and around Bell Rock, I would recommend parking in the... More

All of the sites around Sedona are beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed touring the area and seeing the ever changing colors of the landscape. We highly recommend that Bell Rock is on your list of must sees-when visiting the area.

This is a popular spot for a hike. Good thing there are a lot of parking spaces. The loop taking you around Bell Rock is not challenging but very nice. Take your time, take it all in, bring your camera, you will need to take some pictures.

Great for a hike! We went in July, so early morning was better for the heat - take water, wear sunscreen and enjoy the hike. It is a fairly easy climb for those who are athletic, and the work to get up the rock was worth the effort - the views are incredible. The energy was magical

Wow this is an amazing area- there are many trails to choose from and most are easy to moderate. You can get up close to Bell Rock or go in another direction to see one of the other nearby rock formations. I found it to be very peaceful and relaxing and beautiful scenery along the way.
