    Great hike with awesome views. Lots of foot traffic. Everyone we encountered was friendly and at the bridge itself everyone took turns taking pictures. If you are going in the middle of the day, like we did, there are plenty shade opportunities to take a break a long the way. Watch out for the off-road vehicles if you are hiking from the parking lot.

    This hike has everything! You will need a 4x4 to get to the Trailhead, as the 4 mile road back to it is rough. There was nobody else here at all. The hike has an elevation gain of 530’, and has sand, slick rock, riparian forest, washes, and of course the arch! Early morning or later evening would be the best times to hike. When we finished it was 102 at the Trailhead, but we finished at noon. Our 6 year old finished with no trouble, but remember to bring lots of water!

    This is by far my favorite Sedona trail. There are 13 creek crossings until the end of the formal trail. After that, you can continue up the creek bed if you are willing to wade into the water to barely knee height. So worth it to continue on for at least 0.5 miles. Easy, minimal challenges aside from shallow creek crossings and climbing over a few fallen trees. It’s easy to miss creek crossing points, but you figure it out quickly when the trail runs out. Shaded throughout. During COVID on a weekday we saw very few people on the trail (arrived in the parking lot around 9:15 AM). Needed a light jacket for the first 30 minutes because of the breeze and cool water.

    Nice. Not super exciting, but a good canyon getaway

    More challenging access from 89 than from dry creek

    My “exercise hike”. I do this one at least once a week. VERY heavily trafficked in tourist season. Bring plenty of water for this one in the summer. There are few places to hide from the sun. Paramedics hang out in the parking lot with IV bags for those who don’t heed the signs to stay hydrated.

    This is a great loop trail that hits the must-see attractions on Soldier’s Pass, but it has the advantages of abundant parking and outstanding views from Brin’s Mesa (exceeding any of the views on Soldier’s Pass IMO). This loop included a stop at the arches/cave as well.

    Fun little hike to a wonderful natural bridge. Easy, flatish hike from the paved road. At the end there are some exciting steps up the hillside to add that frisson of fear. The only drawback was the crowd at the top waiting to take pictures. Just more reason to come back when there aren’t so many people.

    Tough but so worth the effort. Wear good gripping hiking shoes. Having a hiking pole is also very helpful. Spectacular views.

    Tough but rewarding. Definitely try to summit in the morning before it heats up.

    2019-03-13 Great hike. The views keep getting better the higher you climb. My total travel Tim was about 4 hours, with about 1 hour of rests/photos/food. Left the trailhead at 1pm, back by 6pm. There was light snow at the top, a nice way to cap the trail. The trail is quite a scramble, so if that’s not your thing maybe do a different one. But the effort involved is totally worth it for the views.

    The creek was running high so all the crossings were mid-calf to just below the waist. The trail was washed out in sections, especially st the crossings. Still a great hike, would do it again.

    I hiked Bear Mountain 2011 while vacationing in AZ. It gets a lot of hype for being difficult, but honestly, it didn’t seem that tough even on a hot day in June. Difficult or not, the views from the top of the surrounding red rock country are absolutely stellar!

    I would rate this loop as moderate-high difficulty. Lovely in late January 2019. We hiked counterclockwise (toward Brin's Mesa first), so that the Sinkhole was at the end. Not much wildlife out in the winter, but the scenery is outstanding.

    Take the rock climb up past the "end of maintained trail" sign. Then follow the rim where the rest of the crowds stop and you'll find spectacular views and get some less travelled paths to the end of the canyon.
