“Amazing & long”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We took the scenic trail, which was gorgeous and also the long way. When we arrived at parking, there's a map showing you a couple ways you can get to Devil's Bridge. While the scenic route was beautiful, the trail winds a lot. We took the shorter way back along the road since we had already run out of water, but this was not as nice with the dust stirring up from vehicles. As you get close to Devil's bridge, there is a short straight up climb, but the view is spectacular once you get there.

“Great Hike! Highly recommended and we will definately be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We decided to do this hike very last minute on our way home from vacation. We absolutely loved the hike. The views were unbelievably amazing. The hike starts off pretty slow and isn't too rough to begin with. There is a point in the trail though where we honestly thought we had made a wrong turn because it did not look like we should continue going. But we saw people coming down so we assumed we were on the right track. The trail is kind of rough at some points and is pretty steep with some rocks. There are no handrails and coming down was a bit more difficult.

The views are more than worth it though! You can walk out on the bridge and take amazing pictures. The hike itself is not that long. It really is going to depend on how much time you are wanting to spend actually taking in the views.

The trailhead is about a mile away from the parking lot. You are able to drive to the trailhead if you have a vehicle with pretty decent ground clearance and ideally 4x4. We were driving a Yukon and still felt like we needed more clearance at times. If you need to hike from the parking lot to the trail though it is not a difficult walk and very easily doable.

We will be back to do this again and would highly recommend it to anybody if they are in the area!!!

“Awesome, but a long hike if you don't have a high clearance AWD vehicle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The entire area is gorgeous, but if you don't have a high clearance AWD vehicle, be prepared to hike either a 2 mile very scenic trail that gets a little tricky before hitting the Devil's bridge trail head, or walk down the 1 mile fairly scenic dirt road that a high clearance AWD vehicle can drive down to get to the trail head. During the scenic trail, there were times when the trail was hard to find, especially when it looks like it ends on a dried up river bed, but you're supposed to walk up the riverbed. The hike itself also gets a little tricky because we actually missed the turn to go up to the top of the bridge, and ended up under it. However when you get there, the bridge itself is awesome, along with the view it provides. Hiking the scenic route to the bridge and the dirt road back was a 3 - 4 hour trip, so be prepared with water, food, sun and rain protection. It can get pretty rainy during monsoon season.

“Awesome View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you don't have a 4WD vehicle you will need to walk a good mile to the trail head. The overall hike itself is not difficult, and it is absolutely amazing. You can walk out onto the bridge and feel like you're on top of the world. Take a few minute to walk down below the bridge to snap a few pics too. This was my favorite hike.
