Devil's Bridge Trail, Sedona

#1 of 142 in Trails in Arizona
Hiking Trail · Nature / Park
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.

  • We jeeped out to the trailhead, which is highly recommended. The trail is easy until the last couple yards. Line for pictures was absurdly long. Highly recommend hiking under Devils bridge as well...  more »
  • This was a good hike for us as a family of four, kids 10 & 14. Nice wide path for most of the way. Jeep tours like to come through. Once you get close to the arch, the path narrows tremendously. It...  more »
  • The beginning of this hike is very flat-- unfortunately the parking is not great. you have to park somewhere along the highway and it can be as much as a mile to hike into the start of the trail...  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.
