This is always a stop on every Sedona visit. Once up on Bell Rock, it is so peaceful and relaxing. We come out to visit every year and it never is a disappointment. Make sure you put it on your list as a place to visit if you come to Sedona.

This was my favorite of the Sedona "red rocks." It is very symmetrical: It looks like a building. There is a nature trail leading up to it, but I never walked the trail--I just looked at Bell Rock from a distance. You van get a good view of it from the Chapel of the Holy Cross.

It is about a mile from the parking lot to where you can start climbing. We went at 8 am in July and it was hot hot hot-no shade anywhere either. Bring plenty of water. You must be in decent shape to climb but the views are spectacular. We found spots to sit along the way to rest and look... More

Picturesque and difficult-to-describe-with-words truly unique topography. Worth the drive up from Phoenix. We visited on a summer afternoon after a brief rain shower--it had been 106 degrees F in Phoenix--in the 70s here. Bring extra water if hiking. Parking available. Felt very safe but signs remind folks to lock vehicles. Fee area to hike (buy pass from kiosk at edge... More

My husband and I visited Sedona for a weekend and did this hike in the morning. We parked in the south lot ($5 for all-day parking) and walked on a well-marked easy walking trail around to the north side of the rock. There's also a parking lot on the north side which looked like it was closer to the hiking... More

It's beautiful!!! There's trails that are good for little ones to hike on. We went early there was no traffic and not a lot of people too. Which was great. My kids really enjoyed it.

We really enjoyed hiking around Bell Rock. It's not too difficult, at least to about the mid-point. The trail is very well marked and it's such a wide area that you never feel like you're dangling near the edge of a precipice. Beautiful scenery all around.

Took a short hike near Bell Rock and took some pictures. The red rock is gorgeous. You can hike all the way up to the top of the rock if you want to. Go early if it's summer, as temperatures easily reach 100°.

This is a great hike around bell rock. Go early or late else it gets way too hot in the middle of the day. Bring extra water. No real rest stops or water here.
