We parked at courthouse vista parking area and did the 4.6 mile loop around courthouse butte and bell rock in about 2 hours. We started a little before 9 am and were done by 11 am. It started getting warm quickly in the July heat so try to go as early as possible. This is not the prettiest trail or... More

Great hike with some of the best views once you climb up on it. Easy hike, plus you are right next to the most powerful vortex in Sedona!

Very popular red rock and hiking area. We hiked the Bell Rock trail and enjoyed it! Not too strenuous and mostly flat or small hills. The trail takes you to the base of Bell Rock, so you are able to climb up the rock or just stand at the base and enjoy! This trail loops in with others, so you... More

Bell Rock was an impressive site. We do not hike, but many hikers were out there that seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Took the 0.6mile trail to bell rock. Very easy walk, great for beginners or families. Beautiful views of the surrounding landscape. Lots of options on the trail to continue on for a longer hike if desired. Well worth it.

Great easy walk -- especially amazing during sunset. Lots of places to pull up a sandstone to sit and take in the views.

Stop at this scenic view and take gorgeous pictures. Probably the most vibrant colors of all the mountains you will see.

I had the pleasure of climbing Bell Rock this morning. I had a great guide Peter Gerstein. He has now taken 507 people all the way to the top. His goal is to reach 1111 people. We reached the top in about 45 minutes. The view was spectacular. This particular climb is for the adventurous at heart. Call Peter for... More

We hiked up there in July, it was hotter than heck. It wasn't an easy hike but it was fun and so worth it because the view from the top was amazing. Take lots and lots of water, and drink it. To get to the top of the bell rock hike, go past the Bell Rock Pathway and vista parking... More
