We visited Bell Rock and enjoyed a relaxing hike even though it was rainy and cold. It is not a difficult hike and the views are amazing. It was a nice way to start our Sedona vacation.

Combine Bell Rock with Courthouse Loop trail for an awesome beginner hike in Sedona. Gorgeous scenery and not difficult.

Easy trail for all ages. Go early to avoid all the tour buses and to find a parking spot. Can make it as short or as long as you like.

bell rock is one of my favorite vortex hikes In Sedona. the views and energy are easy to get to and the twisted juniper trees are really easy to spot. A nice mountain top awaits for a meditation and a moment to reflect.

Trail was hard to follow as I got closer to the top. Great scenery all around and pretty good view close to sunset. Was pretty tired by the time I got there so was pushing myself a bit much I think.

I've never visited Bell Rock (or Sedona, for that matter) while a snow storm passed through. Although we weren't properly dressed (it was cold but we didn't have snow/waterproof clothing), we still enjoyed our short walk to Bell Rock. My photos show the usual "red"...More

Bell Rock is an amazing formation in Sedona’s red cliffs which is visible both in the town and when hiking on the nature trails. It is the focal point of many beautiful Sedona pictures. Stopping and seeing it in its nature state is a must.

We were lucky to arrive early and find a place to park in the fee parking lot. We then embarked on a two hour hike around Bell Rock and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and warm sunny morning. The terrain is fairly level but we kept...More

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.
