“Combine with Courthouse Butte for a good hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Do the loop around the back of both Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte for a nice relatively flat 5 mile hike with great views. Not too much traffic on the back side if you can hit the off season.

“Fabulous Morning Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Not too difficult with amazing vistas. Next year we will do the whole loop. Vortex hunting on a crisp cool AZ morning. Perfect!

“A marvel of Nature!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

A must see! The trail is quite easy and goes around the rock. There are some shorter trails that are of medium difficulty and goes up in elevation. The views are breathtaking!

“Easy hike for whole family - take bigger loop to see 4 vortex formations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

We took the big loop, about 5miles to see Bell Rock, little Bell, Courthouse Butte and Spaceship rock.
Tis hike was flat and easy and took us 2 hours at a very comfortable pace. We have 2 boys aged 13 and 15, and the trail and formations was interesting and they loved it.
There were some muddy places, so hiking bots are best.
The trail is dry, rocky and well marked. Take water as there is no place to buy water. There are open pit wash rooms at entrance to trail.
You need to pay for parking at lot.
The parking lot is well marked from the highway.
