Devil’s Bridge


Sedona’s Devil’s Bridge is the largest natural sandstone arch in the area towering 50 feet in the air. The beautiful red rock and green trees are enough to send people into a euphoric state of mind. Its a very well known natural arch and it is a very busy trail. Lots of tourist but everyone was very nice and we all took turns getting our photos taken on the arch, I felt like a tourist in my own state! But the views were amazing and my daughter loved it! My family and I along with Goose hiked this trail with my friends and there dogs, we got to the parking lot early and had plenty of parking places to choose from. Its great that this trail was dog friendly and everyone was respectful of the dogs.
