This is an out and back hike along the Devils Bridge Trail via the Mescal and Chuck Wagon Trails. It has some ups and downs through some washes and small canyons. There is a difficult section at the end with steep stairs and steep dropoffs. The hike will divide with an option to climb the difficult section to the top or hike below the arch. There are amazing sights of the Sedona red rock skyline. You will be rewarded by seeing the largest arch in the Sedona area. Bring water and a snack.
