This hike is easy, depending on how high you climb. The parking situation was simple. You could hike to the top of the rock, or simply stay near the bottom. Very cool, and could be quick if you wanted something less timely.

The rock is really nice, the colors are astonishing, when contrasting with the blue sky. The trail to the rock is red. Walking on that trail gives you peace, it makes you feel really good. All people hiking there were nature lovers, quiet and respectful...More

So, I went hiking solo. My 1st visit to Sedona and it won't be my last. I was prepared with a hydration backpack (~1.5 liters of water), snacks, lip balm, cap and sunglasses. I would highly recommend hiking boots or shoes especially if climbing up...More

Want to experience hiking or biking in Sedona but on an easy path for beginners? Bell Rock is perfect! The trails are wide and flat, with amazing views right from the start. There are short loops or you can do longer adventures. Close to restaurants...More

Despite it being Saturday on Veterans Day weekend, and the parking extremely crowded, we found a place to park and walked up to Bell Rock. The difficulty increases as one ascends. Despite there being a good deal of people there, everyone was friendly and the...More

We stayed at a near by lodge and so was able to take a short hike around the time of the sunset. It was very nice to see this red rock changing shades of red with the sunset. It was also a nice easy walk...More

Sedona Red Rock parks are worth the visit. Either for hikes or pictures. Seeing them up close is wonderful.

We saw Bell rock a number of times, from our hotel window, hiking, and in our Pink Jeep tour. The sights around Sedona are breathtaking. Be sure to provision properly if you are hiking!

Almost anyone can do this. It is crowded, lots of mountain bikers, so stay alert. Good exercise. there was even someone playing a flute or recorder by courthouse Butte that was perfect.

You will be fine with regular sport shoes (need a bit of traction). If you are doing serious climbing, higher levels, then it is a different story. On Bell Rock YOU select whether you want gentle walks or hikes or more... More

Bell Rock is a bit outside of Sedona proper, so you may want to stay in the town and drive the few minutes to Bell Rock. There is so much red rock scenery everywhere that you shouldn't limit yourself to a Bell Rock view, I... More

Go quite early in the morning for hiking to avoid the heat and then star gazing is after sundown . . . Say, 10 p.m.
