So first off, I would not recommend driving the dirt road unless you’re in a Jeep, ATV, or similar off-road very high clearance vehicle. We started down the road in our rental Nissan Rouge with All Wheel Drive and got a few hundred yards down...More

We did this at sunrise and it WAS the highlight of hiking in Sedona. We had a four wheel drive vehicle which was nice for getting past the first tarmac parking lot. If you don't have a 4 wheel drive you will have to walk...More

Devil's Bridge Trail... and the views surrounding the hike on the trail and once at the top of the bridge are magnificent! It's a bit challenging once you start up climbing up... but enjoy stops on the way and take in your surroundings. Going out...More

The Forest Service parking area is small and fills up quickly especially during weekends and holidays, you may have to park along the shoulder of the main road adding about 2/10 mile to your hike. You must walk from the parking lot about 2 miles...More

We hiked to Devil's Bridge from the trailhead after driving our 4-wheel drive vehicle to the trailhead. Many people hike the road/trail to the trailhead from the parking lot off the road. Either way to the trailhead provide beautiful views of the landscape. Once on...More

We went to the bridge after recommendations. Was not too busy, but people were great about taking turns and taking pictures for each other.

We didn't realize this was such a long hike but it was worth it. Leave yourself at least 2 hours to get there and back. Give yourself even more time if you want to hang out there and explore. I didn't realize there was another...More

Be warned that access to the trail is down a very dusty mile long road, unless you have a Jeep or ATV. We enjoyed the hike but ended up completely covered in sand while walking from/to the car.

Don't take the jeep trail, even on foot! A much better approach is to drive further on Boynton Pass Road, fork right on Long Canyon Road, and park at the Mescal Trialhead, which is a much less crowded parking area. Signs... More

If you have a four wheel truck or keep you can drive to the trail head. There is very limited parking at the trailhead and the road has not been leveled off in a very long time. A lot of ruts and pot holes, the people... More

Sorry for the delay in my answer. We went in the early morning. The timing was perfect, not because of the sun, but because there were very few people on the bridge with us. Very peaceful and quiet.
