Trail shared by Abe Ferraro

An adventurous hike/rock scramble to a couple different ledges near the top with amazingly picturesque views!

Description

The beginning of the trail/climb starts off straightforward enough...follow the caged rock cylinders and signs. After a few minutes, you'll get on top of the base of Bell Mountain, and there is a sign that says you can go left or right. I went right first and it was more adventuresome and dangerous, so go left and follow the outlined trail if you want the more straightforward ascent.

Along the climb, there are many ways to the top and no wrong way...climb and deviate to your comfort level. There are points along the way where you are climbing more than running and just remember to keep three points of contact (each foot and hand count as a point of contact) with the rock at all times, and you'll be fine. Brace yourself for stunning views from the top!

This should be the most popular trail in Sedona. Such a cool view at the top. You can scramble up a little higher than the trail here 1.7mi
