Hiking around and even half way up the Bell Rock is a not to be missed experience. The first mile of the hike is very easy on a wide, well maintained, fairly level trail which you must share with mostly very courteous mountain bikers, small children, dogs and woefully unprepared fellow hikers. (Just a suggestion--don't hike this trail in flip... More

Bell Rock... it doesn't get any better than this. The trail is so well-marked that even the very young and the very old can follow it. It does require the ability to navigate uneven ground and the hips and knees to climb small elevations. And wear a color where the red dust blends easily. Bell Rock is a holy place;... More

As long as you are coming from the Phoenix direction towards Sedona, you will immediately come across the amazing rock. You will need to pay $5 for a Red Rock pass to park if you stay longer than a few minutes. The loop hike is 5 miles, relatively easy and flat, good for a casual hike or a run (as... More

I went with my family which did not like climbing but still had lots of fun climbing. the trail drops off at the base of the mountain so your on your own trying to get up. after a while it gets really hard so you should make sure to wear climbing boots.

This was a beautiful hike. Lots of trail route options. We enjoyed the diverse flora and fauna. We were able to sit and relax on the expansive rock formations away from the trail traffic and enjoy the tranquility of the panoramic spread of rock formations surrounding us. A fun place for kids to freely explore, romp and arrange cairns while... More

We pulled into the Bell Rock parking area to get a better look at it and I nosed around one of the trails that went from the lot. When I came to an intersection that had an arrow for the Bell Rock Climb trail I thought I'd give it a try. Half an hour or so later I was scrambling... More

Check out Peter Gersten the Vortex Jumper. You can couch surf at his place as long as you agree to go to the top of Bell Rock with him. All free and he is a wonderful man sharing his experience.
