Nice easy hike to one of the unique landmarks in Sedona. Decent amount of parking. $5 fee for day use was not unreasonable given that the trail was well marked and maintained.

Bell Rock offers perfect silence and natural beauty. The trail is long, winding, and easy to conquer. Wear good hiking shoes so you don't slip. Try to climb up and look out over the canyon.

Our inn room had a direct view of Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte, both are quintessential symbols of what makes the Sedona area great. There's a nice loop hike around both hills, about 1.5 hours long. Views are stunning. If you leave without being in awe by Nature, go see a doctor.

We liked the well-marked trails and the convenience of off road hiking. The views rival the Grand Canyon except you're in the canyon not just on top. It would be nice to have more parking.

The Sedona region is a treasure trove of beautiful red sandstone formations and Bell Rock is one of the most popular. The view is spectacular from many locations and there are many delightful trails taking you directly up the formation itself. Sometimes it can be a little crowded because it is so accessible and near major roads. Parking fees apply.... More

First, the formation looks like one of those Christmas bells that you hold by a handle on top and ring, musically. Second, the steep sides present a myriad of ways to climb and enjoy. Third, the Courthouse loop trail that circles Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte is an easy, but long and hot, stroll that gives you a 360' view... More

This is a beautiful natural red rock marvel. Huge bell shaped natural red rock is worth visiting. Visitors need to walk about half a mile to reach this place and enjoy it from near. One can also see this from far if you are not able to walk on the gravel path. The hike is very good and can climb... More

For years, we have hiked all around Sedona, but this was our first time hiking on Bell Rock. I am glad we did it. While the views are impressive, there are lots of people here.

Quite the scramble up the face of the rock, but it was fun. Views from here are pretty good, but not like Broken Arrow.

Well marked trail, about 4 miles if you do the Courthouse loop too. Popular trail but not crowded. Parking can be tight on weekends and holidays so getting there early is key. Trail is an easy run with some ups and down. Good trail to break you in for hiking and running Sedona.
