There just isn't a more unique rock formation than this one! I think it definitely proves nature is hard at work creating before our very eyes. I took a short walk on the trail leading up to the rock too which was nice. The trail is very well maintained and easily accessible from the main entry from SR 179. Please... More

Did three hikes today (Cathedral's Rock and Devil's Bridge) and this one isn't the best but was worth it. Very calm path from the parking lot to the start of the climb and it wasn't marked extremely well. Once at the climb, it's hard to see how far you should really go up while still being on the trail, but... More

Our first hike in Sedona was on Little Horse Trail which took us to a number of fabulous views of Bell Rock as well as other interesting red rock formations.

This is where it all begins (sort of) on your drive into Sedona from I-17 and Highway 179. Once you see Bell Rock it will pull you in like a magnet and you'll be totally happy with your decision to stop, walk over to the landmark formation, and climb up the rounded slopes as far as you feel comfortable in...

I guess you might be able to get to this rock and hike about, we enjoyed the view from afar as it's an unmistakable part of the landscape.

Totally amazing. You must come to Sedona. The area is so beautiful. Make sure you allow a few days so you can hike around and do a 4x4 trip. Truely breath taking.

We made the Bell Rock Courthouse Butte 4.5 mile hike and it was a beautiful trail. All of the Sedona trails are outstanding.

Nice hike, definitely do it when not as warm out. Wonderful views, watch weather -- do not hike when potentially rainy due to potential flash flooding near hiking area.

The pathway around Bell Rock is flat and easy; around the north end there is a trail marked by cairns that leads to the summit -- this climb is not for beginners, especially if you miss the trail markers and take more risky paths to the top. You'll be rewarded with remarkable views no matter how far up you make... More
