Really enjoyed this hike. The views are definitely worth the climb! Recommend going early to beat the heat, or be prepared to deal with 90+ degree heat.

The scenery was incredible and worth the trip and stay in Sedona. The Bell Rock Parkway trail was relatively easy hike for all levels and very well marked - it also serves as a base to take other trails around bell rock itself or elsewhere. Bring plenty of water as there is no where to refill along the way. They... More

It's by the highway, there are many visitors from either of the two "easy access" parking lots, but it's still worth a visit. Actually, to have some time alone to just sit, be, meditate, or whatever, is not hard to arrange. Two minutes off the main trail will do it. Make sure you can climb down wherever you climb up....

Walked the Bell Rock Trail and it was awesome to get up and close to the monolith. Great chance for awesome photos of the scenery. It was hot by 9 AM so go early to avoid the heat as much as possible. Bring water and wear good footwear.

The kids loved this one. It allows the kids to scramble up rocks and feel like real "mountain climbers" without much danger. It also had a really nice view, with too strenuous of a hike.

The most inviting climb! Once you start, you don't want to stop. Great views from thos rock. This climb starts out easy and becomes more difficult the higher you go.

This mountain is called Bell Rock because its has a format that resembles a bell. This is just one among many mountains in Sedona which are high (this one is around 1.500m), reddish and allowed us to see their various layers of sediment. Most of them are also suppose to be vortexes, or to have some kind of special vibrations... More

My husband and I took this hike trail at sunset. Awesome..... Quite nice and hiker friendly. If you are not a serious hiker, this one offers easier trails and simple climbs. Very relaxing , scenic and fun; you won't be disappointed, the tranquil scenes are amazing

A great place to stop with lots of parking, great trails, and places to meditate on the rocks. Climbing up Bell Rock is easy, coming down is a bit harder, but the views up higher are breath-taking!

Came here for the day. Hiked on some of the trails and then walked up on the rock. Beautiful views all around. I found a place that had a protruding rock above me giving shade so I just sat down and read and observed the nature surrounding me. Must do!
