Bell rock is a Sedona Classic. The trail is easy to follow with great views or the red rocks. Get there early because this trail is often crowded

This area of Arizona is amazing with trails for beginners and experts. Bell rock is an Iconic spot in Arizona.

This is a easy hike for anyone to enjoy! You are surrounded by all of Sedonas formations during this hiking location plus the ground is most smooth red dirt. You can close your eyes and take in the fresh air circulating through your body and the pine it's very energizing.

Easy hike with amazing views!

This perfect jaunt is not very strenuous but will provide you with some beautiful red rock landscape.

This little hike will give you all the best of northern arizona landscape in one spot!

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.

The humans you see are worth the hike
