We came out of a restaurant in Oak Creek and saw the sun setting near Bell Rock. It was beautiful. The next evening, we hiked to Bell Rock specifically to watch the sunset. Easy hike and lovely scenery. Make time to take this hike.

This is only a few miles from Sedona and easily seen from the car park. There are trails to the rock however the view from the car park gives a good perspective of this amazing feature.

This one, I felt, gave off the most energy. Pretty easy walking trail, although like everywhere else in Sedona, its hot, not much shade. The vortexes are overly hyped but it is easy to achieve a deep meditational state around them.

Start early, before it gets hot -- not much shade here! Bring water. Wear hiking shoes, as the wide path is uneven and rocky. Beautiful views! Moderate hiking level. Watch for bikes. The loop portion is not well-marked, but the main path is mostly easy...More

The path around the base of Bell rock is pretty level so even folks with disabilities can make the trek without much difficulty. There was even a disabled person on the trail with a scooter who was able to enjoy the scenery. Highly recommended place...More

Simply amazing. I overcame my fear of heights and climbed to the very top. It was a cathartic experience I wish everyone could have.

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.
