Always wanted to try the Devils Bridge Hike and finally got a chance. Most people park on Dry Creek Road however we chose to try Long Canyon Road and found much better parking at the Mescal or Chuckwagon Trailhead. Go to end of Dry Creek...More

This place is awesome. Recommendations are to park at trailhead and hike earlier in the day rather than later. One, because the first part of the hike is not shaded and gets full sun (and is hot), second is because this trail gets crowded and...More

Fairly easy hike until the last 1/4 mile. The end is worth the straight up climb. Devils Bridge offer awesome views of the red rocks and valley below. Keep going and do the Chuck Wagon trail!!

We went early and had the bridge to ourselves for a little while, before a few groups arrived. The view on the way up is stunning in some places, hadn't expected that.

Really cool hike, trail is well established, but can be pretty challenging at times it becomes a climb. Hiking up and and back down the trail took about 3 1/2 hours. amazing photos from the top if you want to walk across the bridge.

We took the long way up to devils bridge. It was easy at first but then it did get difficult. There were rocks to climb but once you got out to the bridge it was so neat. Some of us opted to walk over the...More

It was a cool hike, well worth the uphills to get to the bridge. The trail was well marked also. Once you get to the bridge you have to wait your turn to take pictures but the pictures there are worth the wait.

Hi! Can I wear running shoes to hike this trail? Or are hiking shoes necessary for this trip? I'm thinking about traction...not ankle support. Thank you!

we all wore Asics trail sneakers and were fine.

We are interested in visiting this place while in Sedona with our 6 and 8 year old children. There are mixed reviews about the ease of the hike and the distance as it depends on where you park. We'll have a rental van. Where should we park to get us as close to the trailhead? I know the main parking lot requires an off road vehicle which we don't have so I would like to know what is the next closest parking lot that is accessible by van.

The road is paved to the parking lot at the dry creek trail head. Hike from this parking area to the devils bridge trail head. The parking lot fills up quickly so get there relatively early in the morning. The parking area... More

If you are talking about from Brins Mesa, it's about a 10 mile hike venturing out there. I'm not quite sure how to do it, as I haven't done it, but I think it's possible.
