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

Start your hike around 7 or 8 am if possible in the summer months - because of the heat and the crowds. Park at Mezcal or Chuckwagon Trailhead because unless you have a 4x4 you won't be able to navigate closer to the trail. Follow...More

You must be prepared to hike this trail to get the fruits of your labor or the view. This is a 3.6 mile hike. Mostly on a dirt road with a lot of rocks and a lot of heat. There is not much shade for...More

We hiked the entire way from the lower parking lot. It sounded easier than it was, but it could have been due to the heat and the fact that we had already hiked Cathedral Rock before this one. It was in the hottest part of...More

My husband and I hiked to Devil's Bridge via Chuckwagon. The hike was fairly easy till the end. The views were great along the way and Devi's Bridge is amazing.

Great desert hike! Beautiful views once you get there. Quite dusty and hot but worth the trip. Not too long but long enough. Take a lot of water.

You have to hike about 4 km to the bridge, at the latest part with steps on a moderate hard trail however it worth to see the bridge

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.

If you are talking about from Brins Mesa, it's about a 10 mile hike venturing out there. I'm not quite sure how to do it, as I haven't done it, but I think it's possible.
