One of the iconic formations in Sedona, AZ. Sedona's red rocks are very beautiful, It is also one of the energy centers in the world.

This is the one you see when coming into Sedona from Phoenix. When you stop at the parking lot you should have a hangtag on your car mirror from the forestry service, which can be bought at the Circle K gas station just before it....More

The scenery is great but trail markers are confusing. There are a number of trail signs but you don't know what trail you can easily switch trails without knowing. Best to follow piles of rocks.

This is a great place for an easy hike with a lot of nice options to walk longer or not. People were on bikes and lots of dog walkers. Lovely views. Enjoyed immensely. Worth the stop. If warm bring a water bottle.

Each part of the valley has a special enchantment. This is no exception. As grandparents, we needed a place where we would be comfortable and our city grand children would find interesting...this is it. As with many trailheads parking can be tight.

We hiked around Bell Rock and Courthouse in the afternoon. Glad it was February and not midsummer. Ended up being a longer hike than anticipated. We brought water and sunscreen and needed both. Weather was 65, sunny and beautiful. Fairly level route but longer than...More

Bell Rock is beautiful, but we prefer it from afar. We hiked on a Tuesday morning and couldn't believe how crowded it was. There were even tour buses there. We also disliked all the highway noise--so much less peaceful than the other hikes we did....More

The trail is short and flat. Once you start climbing, it's easy.....but then you get to the end of the marked trail and it gets progressively harder and less well-marked. We worked our way around the rock in a bit over an hour, stopping a...More

We climbed Bell Rock on one day, and walked around it the next day in the Courthouse Butte Loop. The climb was fun but strenuous (I am 74 years old). Walking the Loop was wonderful, with one breathtaking sight after another. Loved it!

You will be fine with regular sport shoes (need a bit of traction). If you are doing serious climbing, higher levels, then it is a different story. On Bell Rock YOU select whether you want gentle walks or hikes or more... More

Bell Rock is a bit outside of Sedona proper, so you may want to stay in the town and drive the few minutes to Bell Rock. There is so much red rock scenery everywhere that you shouldn't limit yourself to a Bell Rock view, I... More

Go quite early in the morning for hiking to avoid the heat and then star gazing is after sundown . . . Say, 10 p.m.
