This is an interesting visit. The trail isn't too stressful or difficult till just past the base of the Rock but then the signs send you to one side or the other and after walking partway around we could find no additional signs and walked back to the middle point. Here we just started climbing straight up though there is... More

I did this home with my wife and 10 & 8 year-old girls. We had a really great time except that my older more-cautious daughter balked at going past a certain point. My more-bold daughter actually pushed me past where I thought she should go based on the increasing challenge of the hike... which became more scrambling higher-up. She and... More

Parking is easy and available most days - you don't have to walk far to have an excellent view! Very nice - we take all our guests in Phoenix there for a day trip.

Bell Rock is very interesting from a distance but nothing really changes as you get close to it. We were looking for the vortex which we never found. Since we had done a lot of hiking, my brother and I, both senior citizens, decided not to climb this rock sensing that it was just another rock climb. We never found... More

For someone who isn't a real climber, and into rock scrambling, this is an easy trail up the side of the rock until the halfway point, and you can get great photos from going up this far. We didn't go to the top because it started to rain and we thought it might get slippery. Plenty of kids doing this... More

You should park at the Courthouse vista parking for this one. It is a shorter walk in from that lot. The walk in from the Bell rock lot seemed like it would never end. Very gradual climb up. Parts looked steep but there were easy ways up as well. Lots of little kids noted on this hike.

Bell rock is right next to the highway. In my opinion it is the most interesting and beautiful rock formation there. You can park and climb it if you wish.

We hiked several trails in the area and also shopped. This was an amazing sight to see, make sure you bring plenty of water to hike...

Great Vortex with tremendous energy. Amazing rock formation. Great flora and fauna. Not to be missed, don't forget your camera! A hat for the sun, put sunscreen on, wear comfortable walking shoes and maybe a maybe a walking stick for balance!
