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.

Always a fun trail with a rewarding end. The view is outstanding and the pictures blow people away. A must-do when in Sedona. Just be there early or prepare to stand in line.

Really enjoyed this hike! Beautiful views at the top. About 4 miles round trip. A bit of a hike to get to the start of the trail but the first half of it barely had any incline. The views are absolutely stunning. We did not end up standing on the bridge itself at the end because it was quite steep and didn’t want to wait in line. Would do it again!
Beautiful place to hike. Trail was well groomed and marked well. Last stretch is fairly strenuous with some steep climbing. Bring water and be prepared to wait your turn on the bridge. Our wait was approximately 40 minutes. Well worth the wait, just be prepared.
