Description

Added by Nicole Twu

Hike to a breathtaking natural red rock bridge you can walk across.

The Devil's Bridge trail head itself is accessible via a road meant for 4x4s, which your average car cannot handle. The best way around this is to park at the Mescal Trail on Long Canyon Road. From Dry Creek Road, turn right on to Long Canyon Road, where you will see trail maps and a small parking area.

You'll follow the Mescal Trail then make a left onto the Chuckwagon Trail. From there, you'll follow it until you cross the FR152, the 4x4 road, to the Devil's Bridge Trailhead.

There's very little elevation gain until the very end as you head up to the top of the bridge. You can stay on the main cliff to view the bridge, or walk out onto it.
