We parked at the paved lot where there are restrooms on site. Easy walk down flat road and then you will hit the trail where 4x4 and tour vehicles will be so be aware. I would recommend hiking boots or trail shoe's but plenty of...More

We arrived at the parking lot at 5:30am and thankfully avoided the sweltering sun on the first half of the hike. It ended up being 5.8 miles from the parking lot round trip. Took us about 3 hours, but that included the time resting and...More

parked at the main car park ( Not the 4x4 parking which is far closer) adds an extra mile to the walk , which is on an uneven dirt -track , but easy. Lovely scenic stroll through the area , saw plenty of desert wildlife...More

We hiked in from the Chuckwagon trailhead. Hike itself wasn't too strenuous but the last little bit of it was frightening for me. I am not a fan of heights. There are parts that I had to use my hands and then coming down was...More

Great trail... approx. 5 miles long... beautiful views, not difficult unless you are afraid of climbing rocks or standing close to cliffs! Fun to go with a group!!

Our first time to AZ....loved it! Spent a day at Grand Canyon, one in Flagstaff, and one in Sedona. Loved the Devils Bridge Trail hike. The end was more vertical than I expected from reading reviews, but I would have loved an even harder challenge....More

The sign at the nearest paved parking says it's a 3.6 mile round trip hike and to take a gallon of water. It's a very dusty dirt road that you hike to the trail head parking. There were several 4 wheelers and Jeep tours... More
Hi! Can I wear running shoes to hike this trail? Or are hiking shoes necessary for this trip? I'm thinking about traction...not ankle support. Thank you!

Can it be hiked in running shoes? Yes. Should it be hiked in running shoes? No. Running shoes are built for running, not for hiking Sedona's rocky terrain. By wearing hiking boots, you dramatically reduce your risks of... More

We are interested in visiting this place while in Sedona with our 6 and 8 year old children. There are mixed reviews about the ease of the hike and the distance as it depends on where you park. We'll have a rental van. Where should we park to get us as close to the trailhead? I know the main parking lot requires an off road vehicle which we don't have so I would like to know what is the next closest parking lot that is accessible by van.
