“Great place to hike”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

From the Bell Rock parking lot, there are multiple hikes available. For those wanting an easy hike with good views, simply follow the path to Bell Rock itself. From there, you can either scramble up Bell Rock as far as you wish, or you can hike around Bell Rock.

For those who want a more ambitious hike, follow the path for the Park Loop, which takes you around both Bell Rock and Court House Butte. The hike is interesting, taking you through ever-changing scenery, but is relatively flat with simple slopes. I'd recommend this hike both for the avid hiker looking for a beautiful place to hike and for the casual hiker, looking for something not too strenuous.

“Beautiful Butte”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Come to red rock beauty early as you can, when the sun is low, the heat is friendly and the trails are quiet. Bell Rock is easy access, from the parking to the accessible trails. Hike along the base, among the plants, pinons, cacti, all set against the pink-red-orange background. Whether you climb to the top, a vigorous hike, or enjoy the easier strolls around the base or mid-butte, a soul-stirring date with a natural wonder.

“A must in Sedona”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

The most accessible vortex in Sedona. An easy day hike with great views of the Sedona to Oak Creek saddle.

“Mountain bike around a beautiful rock structure!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

My kids & I rented bikes from nearby Absolute Bikes, Oak Creek and rode up to the Bell Rock along the bike/hiking path. It was challenging even though realatively even path. Mostly uphill (going toward Sedona) but riding very close to the towering rock and lots of desert cactus, shrubrey and pinon trees with birds and quiet nature to enjoy. Very hot in mid day but we brought water in backpack and bottle cages. You won't regret a short 1.5 hour spin up and back!

“One of the Most Photographed Buttes of Sedona”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

South of Sedona on Hwy. 179, Bell Rock is near the hwy. Best time to photograph this butte is morning looking west with the sun at your back.
