Devil’s Bridge is one of those Sedona destinations that everyone wants to experience. Devil’s Bridge is a natural bridge that tourists and hikers flock to all year round. The bridge makes for the perfect place for an iconic Sedona photo. Getting there is half the fun. The trail leading from the Dry Creek Vista Trailhead parking lot is relatively flat and easy, perfect for all hikers. The Jeep companies use the road for tours, so the road is well travelled. Towards the end of the trail, there is a steep climb heading to the top where you can view the bridge. This part of the hike is considered moderate-difficult, so be prepared for an uphill scramble. Once on top, the beauty of the area is unsurpassed. During weekends and the busy season, expect huge crowds and long lines for picture taking.
The hike is about 3.6 miles round trip from the Dry Creek Trailhead parking lot. You can also access Devil’s Bridge from the Chuck Wagon Trail, Long Canyon Trail and Mescal Trailhead. These trails are more scenic and have some spectacular views, but they take longer to get to the bridge.
Starting in April, 2022 the Sedona Shuttle will take you from the Posse Grounds Park and Ride to the Dry Creek Trailhead. The Sedona Shuttle operates Thursdays through Sundays and seven days a week during peak times. The bus runs about every half hour and is free for everyone. Information about the Sedona Shuttle can be found here. Want to know about other Sedona hikes?
