Because it was raining, we did not venture onto the rock itself. Would have loved to. Easy hike. Enjoyable even with the rain.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Oak Creek which is just south of Bell Rock. The trails are fabulous and you have a choice of easy or difficult so there are trails for everyone.

Hiked to the foot of this amazing formation from a trail that began out the back door of the B and B. Great vistas, easy trail for beginning hikers.

You can stay on the trail around Bell Rock, or if you're adventurous, you can climb the highest heights. Beautiful area! Kid friendly.

Hike around Bell Rock is very easy. Good for elderly or young kids. Hiking up Bell Rock is difficult as there is no marked trail after a certain point. Also, not much incentive to get to the top as the view is always the same....More

This hike is relatively short and offers the opportunity to scramble up and around Bell Rock. The views were outstanding. The only downside is that the parking lots fill up quickly so getting there early or arriving with patience is recommended.

The hike is relatively short and flat, and ends at Bell Rock, which you can scramble up. The kids love climbing up.

It’s an easy hike to the first level (if you can find a parking space - lot was full by 11, and we had to return after lunch), but quite a slippery scramble to go any higher. Great views!

We hiked the Bell Rock Parkway, a path which circles Bell Rock. Simple hike- about 3 miles. Views are fantastic. Relatively flat trail.

Reading the signs, we learn that this was shaped by the sea. This landscape was supposedly once a tropical beach oasis and it was this ancient sea that created the foundation of Bell Rock. Over millions of years, the sea level rose and fell many...More

We did both and there were definitely pluses to both. The pink Jeep tour was able to get you to very secluded places where you can’t easily hike. We hiked bell rock some and that was also great.

Call the Red Rock Ranger District and ask for traveler information: 928-203-2900. You may need a Red Rock Pass anyway to park. Info by searching for Red Rock Ranger District Information Center (I'd post a link, but it is... More

You can do the short hike up to the rock with everyone. I believe it's 0.5 miles. But going up the rock would not be ideal.
