As the largest stone arch in Sedona, Devils Bridge is one of the top ten Sedona attractions you must see.

Every time we hiked here at Devils Bridge, we parked at the Long Canyon trailhead. It’s about roughly a 4-mile trek from there. A lot of people take their high clearance vehicles and ATV rentals down the Dry Creek Road (FR 152) to the next parking lot. This cuts their hiking time in half.

People come from all over the world to visit Sedona attractions in Arizona and Devils Bridge is certainly one of them. It’s popular not only for its awesome scenery but because it’s easy to get to as well. If you want those phenomenal views of monoliths and mountainous regions without killing yourself on a strenuous hike with steep inclines and constant switchbacks then you’ll enjoy the easy hike to Devil’s Bridge. It’s only 2 miles round trip with a 4,600-foot elevation gain if you have a high clearance vehicle to handle the dirt road alongside the trail, otherwise, you’ll have to start at the parking lot leaving you 3-4 miles of mostly flat trail hiking.

The hardest part of this hike is the end of the trail that continues on as a natural staircase leading right to the bridge. If you’re not too afraid of heights you can enjoy snapshot opportunities on top of Devil’s Bridge. Just be careful to stay away from the edge. There is no railing or anything to protect you should you slip and fall.
