Devil's Bridge Trail, Sedona

4.8
#1 of 145 in Trails in Arizona
Home to the area's largest sandstone arch, Devil's Bridge Trail offers visitors a chance to explore and experience rugged terrain without the strain of an intense hike. Lined with cacti, rock formations, and desert foliage, the trail provides the opportunity to hike to the top of its namesake arch as well as its shaded underside. Though the 2.9 km (1.8 mi) roundtrip hike from the trailhead is moderately difficult, it's fully paved and accessible to hikers of all levels and capabilities. Keep in mind that the arch itself is not fenced off, so exercise caution.

  • Take water. Plenty of water. Go either earlier in the day or later in the afternoon; if not, expect a line at the top near the bridge for photos. Waited about an hour to have our photo taken but...  more »

  • People talk about being strenuous but it wasn’t at all for us, we both are runners though, and it was about 2 miles one way, 4 total. We got there at 8:00 and I thought it was nice and not too hot...  more »

  • Great hike, but should be noted that it is not an easy hike. It is mislabeled and is more like 4 miles round trip with a steep incline near the end
  • Parked just after 5am and was the second car in the overflow lot. Took about 45 min to reach the bridge. I was back in my car just after 7am. Don't attempt to drive the unpaved portion unless you have a lifted truck or ATV. Saw a huge tarantula on the roadway coming back. Well worth getting up early.
  • Beautiful hike and gorgeous views from the bridge. All age can do this hike, but there are a few sketchy areas but once you reach the top it's all gravy. Bring lots of water and sunscreen as you should with any hike in AZ. I will definitely be doing this one again.
  • Get views and trail from the actual trailhead. If you have a good 4wd or jeep drive the road from the parking lot. Bring plenty of water
  • I loved this trail.
