Route Description for Devil’s Bridge from Long Canyon Road
Devil’s Bridge is one of the most popular hikes in the Sedona area. At the end of this trail, a magnificent sandstone bridge extends across Red Rock Country and the viewing area next to it provides a perfect spot to take photos from. Most of the trail is gradual, but there’s a steep incline near the end that may require a bit of hands-on help for some. Active children and beginners should still be able to make it, especially since the steep climbing section has some rocky steps to help you out.
From Long Canyon Road, you’ll hike across the Dry Creek creekbed and stay left at the split. This trail meanders up to meet the usual Devil's Bridge Trail at the junction with Dry Creek Road.
At the scrambling section, make use of the step-shaped rocks and climb up. From here, you can either kick back on the viewing area and admire the bridge or climb over the arch for a photo. There’s also a trail on the left that takes you underneath the bridge if you want to gaze up at it. It’ll be very busy here, so the earlier you arrive, the less waiting you’ll do for a photo on the bridge.
Once you’re ready, retrace your steps to the road.
