Too many people on the trails, which diminishes the purpose to be outdoors and enjoy peace and quiet.

We have hiked up Bell Rock many times & I am always amazed by the view as you climb higher. Take binoculars- there is a lot to see! It's a relatively easy walk up so well worth the effort to get up high.

This was a nice hike, although it wasnt very scenic. I would recommend cathedral and devils bridge over this.

The Bell Rock loop trail is a great spot to begin a hike or mountain bike ride in the Sedona area. Nice trails, well marked and maintained, beginner friendly, and not too technical with all the rocks and ledges the area is noted for on many other trails. Bike rentals are close by in Oak Creek at Bike and Bean... More

Great scenery, great exercise, ad just a good vibe all-around. People seem to go their for a the vortex energy, but I think its their intentions that make it feel so positive and inspiring.

We parked at the area just north of Bell Rock, whicxh was perfect access to the trail heads. We decided on the Bell Rock Loop trail, which was just perfect for our level of hiking ability. The trail was wonderfully marked and well maintained, with a gentle climb and great footing. The vistas from the highest points were gorgeous.

This area is simply stunning. I did the trail that took be around Courthouse Butte and ended near Bell Rock. The views were spectacular.

They say bell rock was once submerged by water years ago, in the subterranean times. Thats why it is smooth. Smooth enough to sit and watch the sedona revelers carry on their wild touring of sedona. Sit back, relax and take in the scene..... this is truly a wondrous place to grab some sunlight and go on an easy hike... More
