We did the Bell Rock hike after a long day of travel and it's super mellow and easy. You cant actually hike up the rock just near the base and up a bit. Beautiful views all around this area, 360 degrees. We continued and did...More

Who could imagine that following the easy trail around the base of Bell Rock would offer such a variety of views. The monument changes shape as you walk around the base, giving amazing insite into the area, and about every 30 steps or so gives...More

Beautiful hike with options to go as far as one wants or as rugged. We did more of a leisurely stroll and enjoyed the beauty and photo opportunities. Highly recommend

Great hiking around this area - there is a stop near the rock where you can pick many trails if that is what you want to do. Free parking, I did see restrooms, but I didn't see any picnic areas.

Bell Rock is a great hike for morning, mid-day or evening. The views are spectacular. If you are a little afraid of heights or you have bad knees, find a way to go up. Follow the markings and crawl if you have to (you will...More

Easy hike with a stupendous view of Bell Rock and a glimpse of Courthouse Butte. However, the crowds of hikers and mountain bikes made it extremely difficult to enjoy the scenery. Either go early in the morning or late afternoon. Best views of Bell Rock...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.
