This was by far my favorite hike in the Sedona area. We went around 8 am and we had the entire trail to ourselves. It's located in a fairly secluded area and the scenery is beautiful. You'll see lots of wide open spaces with no houses, buildings or other signs of civilization. The trail starts out fairly wide and flat, but it becomes more narrow until you are climbing along steep rocks up to the top. Be sure to keep going until you make it all the way up to the "bridge," which is about .8 miles from the trailhead. After the steep climb, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views. The bridge, although it looks a bit scary, is wide enough that you can walk out onto it. Overall, the trailhead is a little tricky to find and the dirt road leading there is a bit rough for a regular passenger vehicle, so just take your time, drive slowly and enjoy the scenery ...it's worth it!
I'm sure you can see from the picture how Devil's Bridge got its name. Although it's a bit off the beaten track, getting there is not all that difficult. You can drive to the trail head and then make the approximately one-mile hike from there. If you don't drive to the trail head you'll have to walk another couple of miles or so from the main road just to the trail head, which would be no fun.

Devil's Bridge 2
The scenery along the path to Devil's Bridge is almost as interesting as Devil's Bridge itself. I have no idea how this boulder has managed not to fall down the cliff, but somehow it is perched in this position and appears to be connected by just a small section of rock. Sedona is full of wonders like this.
We enjoyed hiking to Devil's...
We enjoyed hiking to Devil's Bridge and all of the little trails around that area.
I'm not sure what is more breathtaking: the Alps or the hills & buttes of Sedona! The Sedona landscape looks as if a giant chiseled it into these fantastic shapes and then took a paint brush and wildly colored it yellow, orange, pink and green!

Everywhere you go you'll find unique and interesting rock formations that looked like they were sculpted by a giant stonecutter.
