Bell Rock is a relatively easy 1.5-mile roundtrip hike in Sedona. There are several options for ascent depending on skill level. 

The Bell Rock Trail in Sedona is a relatively easy hike with a majestic reward. It is a well maintained trail that with plenty of views to keep your eyes happy. Don't be surprised if you catch yourself turning around every 5 minutes and saying, "wow, this is gorgeous!"

The trail itself is only .75 miles and climbs along the northern face of Bell Rock. You are able to climb the rock as high as you feel is safe for you. Obviously the higher you hike the more grand the scenery gets. Climb high enough and you just might find yourself staring at a view worthy of the gods.

Expand your hike...

Expand your hike by rounding Courthouse Butte via Courthouse Butte Loop Trail. This leads you completely around Courthouse Butte letting you see it from all sides. Also leads to a cool red dome rock on the northeast side of Courthouse Butte - great place to snap pics of Courthouse Butte, Bell Rock, and Baby Bell. If you are really feeling tough, head to the top of Bell Rock or Courthouse Butte on the many trails that wind up the formations.
