What people say

"Start your day hiking Devil's Bridge, the largest natural sandstone arch located in the Sedona area of Coconino National Forest. This is a great hike that offers breathtaking views of Red Rock country. It is a 3.9 mile out-and-back hike that is rated moderate. There is very limited parking at the Dry Creek Vista trailhead, or you can park on the side of the street which is about a 1 mile walk from the trailhead. This trail does get very crowded, so definitely do it first thing in the morning, especially if you want to park at the trailhead. I recommend arriving no later than 6:45am. Plus, if you start early, you'll be able to get a picture on the arch without the crowds or having to wait in line! "
"Depending on where you get to park, your hike may turn into a bit longer. From the parking lot, we hiked 4 miles round trip. We did this hike in early January on a sunny day but the whole trail was covered in snow and ice. Highly would recommend micro spikes and to wear gloves in the winter season for safety. "
"You want to go to this as early as possible. We showed up 30 minutes before sunrise and we were the only ones here for the first 45 min. If you go mid-day it will be an absolute zoo so keep that in mind. "
