Hiking to Devil’s Bridge Sedona
Sedona is a hiking paradise. There are an endless number of trails to take in the area, many of which lead you to one exceptional view after another. Devil’s Bridge Sedona is one of the most popular places to hike and photograph in the area, and no trip to Sedona would be complete without at least one visit to this magnificent place. The hike to Devil’s Bridge is moderate in difficulty and can be relatively crowded during peak season. The trail is approximately 4.2 miles round trip, making it a pretty quick trip, too. Devil’s Bridge Sedona is located in the Coconino National Forest, and it’s the largest sandstone arch of its type in Sedona.
It’s worth noting that the official trailhead to Devil’s Bridge starts just off Dry Creek Road on the unpaved portion of the road. However, that trailhead is only accessible if you happen to be driving a high-clearance vehicle, such as a jeep. Otherwise, you’ll have to park down on the paved portion of Dry Creek Road (aka FR 152), adding approximately 1-mile to your trip. You could also access Devil’s Bridge Sedona via the Mescal Trailhead on Long Canyon Road if you prefer.
Once you’re on the trail to Devil’s Bridge, you’ll find that it’s relatively easy. The first portion of the trail takes you through some beautiful stands of juniper and prickly pear cactus. From there, the elevation quickly starts to climb, growing steeper as you go until the final climb which is quite steep. The views from the below the bridge are certainly iconic and worth a photo or two, but the real views come once you reach the top. For that perfect Instagram-worthy photo, walk out onto the bridge itself and strike a pose!
