If you decide to hike up the actual rock, you will get a great sense of the vistas Sedona has to offer. The trail increases in difficulty and my fear of heights made us stop at a certain point. We saw all levels of skill level on the trail from children to experienced hikers who went very high! Parking is... More

Apparently, there are two parking lot that have access to the Bell Rock. If you park at the south parking lot, it's a good walk just to get to the bottom of the Bell Rock. It will be better to park at the parking lot further north so that you don't exhaust yourself before you even reach the Bell Rock.... More

Bell rock is right off SR 179 as you come into Sedona from the south. A parking area with nice views of the rock monolith is easily accessible from the highway. The rock is interesting and while we did not do the hike up due to time constraints the trails are easy to find and follow from the parking area.... More

Bell Rock was our first hike in Sedona and it was amazing. The views, the enormity of the area, the energy...it can only be described as breathtaking. The climb was gradual for the most part but since the rock is very smooth in parts, one should exercise caution, especially when descending. Pause to take in the views. They are fantastic!

We came in from Phoenix, so when this popped up, we all were awe struck. Maybe that is why it was my favorite rock formation in Sedona. It was also smaller and quite shapely. LOL. We did not hike this one although I learned later that it may have been one of the easier hikes. With so many to do,... More

It's been 20 years since my last visit. The roads and paths are improved, but the rocks are the same and magnificent. Plan to go at sunset, and the "Alpenglow" will light up the rocks for a fabulous display that lasts about 3 minutes. Have your camera ready!

This was an easy hike we did before dark. If you hike up the path a ways you can actually get on the rocks quite easily and look around.

Bell Rock was our first stop upon entering Sedona, and our first hiking experience. As we are a family of 3 - mixed ages, with different interests and physical abilities - it was a great introduction to the majesty of the area for each of us, without taxing anyone physically or boring our otherwise jaded 13 year old. The trail... More

We were her late Feb by recommendation of concierge. This is a hike good for all people. There are wonderful views . The air is amazing . It's I think about $5 to park. There's a machine there you buy a ticket to display in your dashboard. We kept going up the butte after where most people stopped and it... More

Lessons in endurance. This hike has many difficulty levels depending on how high you would like to climb. It took 3 attempts before I finally made it to the top of Bell Rock. The incredible view took my breath away. In true Sedona fashion this hike/vortex site will be unlike anything you have ever seen. The 360 degree views will... More
