My husband and I decided to hike Bell Rock because I heard it wasn’t too difficult. When we saw where you had to climb up the rock we decided it would be a little much for us beginners. We walked the Courthouse Butte Loop and...More

Seeing this was on my grandmas bucket list and so we checked it off and it did not disappoint. Pictures do not do it justice.

One of the easier hikes, the path to the rock is flat but be prepared to climb. If you want a shorter distance there is a closer parking lot than the one for bell. Paths are well marked.

The shapes and contours of the red rock is absolutely spectacular. So much to see here and wonderful photo opportunities.

We did both and there were definitely pluses to both. The pink Jeep tour was able to get you to very secluded places where you can’t easily hike. We hiked bell rock some and that was also great.

You can do the short hike up to the rock with everyone. I believe it's 0.5 miles. But going up the rock would not be ideal.
