“Incredible view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

The hike to the bridge was about .7 and well worth the adventure of climbing up the rocks to get to the top. The view is amazing. Add to your hike in by taking the 2 mile journey on a trail vs taking the road. When you're on the trail, you forget you're on your way to a tourist destination. The road gets quite a bit of travel by jeep tours. We counted about a dozen vehicles that passed us on the dirt/sand road. Detour by trail -- take in the sights and enjoy the 3 mile journey from the main parking lot to the top of the bridge.

“Beautiful 7 mile hike to Devil's Bridge and back.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

The Devil's Bridge Trail is only about a 2 mile round trip hike from the trailhead to Devil's Bridge and back. However, you can only get to the trailhead in your vehicle if you have a truck, jeep, or something else with high clearance. The unpaved road to the trailhead should not be attempted in a car!!!

If you are in a car, like we were, and have to park at the main parking area, the hike is 2 1/2 from the parking lot to the trailhead - making it a 7mile round trip hike from you car to Devil's Bridge and back. It is probably would have been easier to just walk on the truck/jeep road to the trailhead, rather than taking the hiking trail from the parking lot, but that did not seem to be enticing to us.

The hiking trail from the parking lot to the Devil's Bridge trailhead is a nice trail that gains and loses some elevation along the way, but is not overly strenuous. It passes through wooded areas, where we got to see some birds, trees, flowers and more....

The Devil's Bridge trail gains about 400 feet in a mile, with minimal rock scrambling involved. The reward of this hike is worth it, because the Devil's Bridge is cool. A natural red rock arch, that makes for a great photo opportunity.

The 7 miles we hiked took us about 3 1/2 hours. We enjoyed it, and would recommend it.

“Worth the hike.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Although it takes a bit of a walk to get to the actual bridge, it is well worth it. The views are breathtaking. Have water, good shoes, and a hat for the hike. Plan for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

“Devil you say”

This place was beyond belief, both in terms of scenery and the hike itself. The trail was a bit of a challenge in the end, but we managed.
