Devil’s Bridge Trail, Sedona, Arizona, USA
Devils Bridge Trail is a 4.5 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Sedona, Arizona that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
There are several red rock arches near Sedona including Vultee Arch, Fay Canyon Arch, and probably the most viewed, Devils Bridge, situated at the edge of a wide valley on the north side of Capital Butte. Despite its name, the formation is still an arch rather than a bridge – created by wind and weather erosion and not by flowing water – and can be reached by a minimum hike of 0.8 miles, starting from a small trailhead along Dry Creek Road.
This is only accessible to 4WD vehicles however; 2WD parking is 1.1 miles away, while an alternative starting point is the Long Canyon Trailhead, from where a recently created path (the Chuckwagon Trail), links with the bridge trail.
