Devils Bridge

Sedona, AZ

Was steep but a short hike. The trail was in moderate shape. Was slippery in places with pea gravel. Great wiew from the top. The trail went to the top of this one. This is a heavily traveled attraction.

I tried to take this hike today, parked in small lot off Crimson Rd off of Saint Mary Road. Was unable to find the start of the trail. I just moved to Flag so I'm not familiar with the area. Any suggestions?

Nice easy flat loop trail. Can customize your hike, repeat loops, take shorter loops, etc. Brought my dog, but leashed. Lots of prickly cacti, so she got stuck quite a bit. Busy trail during peak season.

One of my favorites. It's tricky getting there, the signs are a little confusing. I actually found it by accident. Headlamp needed. Gets colder as you enter, but feels good in the summer. Tough to use hiking sticks, but in some places, the trail tests your balance :) Super fun and interesting. You can bring your dog, but I was reluctant to do so since it was dark and I needed to pay attention to the trail. Ample parking.

I used to hike this trail when I was a little boy. Also when there was hardly any houses out there, and now there everywhere. Still a good hike though.

Oldham Trail

5 Completed 2 Reviews

Also known as Easy Oldham, this trail is a great day hiking option in north Flagstaff. Head to Buffalo Park off Cedar Ave, find a spot to park and start hiking. You'll walk north through Buffalo Park to a log book at the trailhead. About 100 meters from the trailhead, stay left and follow a gradual descent through Ponderosa Pines. From this point on, follow the signs to the end of Oldham at Elden Lookout Road. You'll gain about 500-feet of elevation on the way out.

This was one of the first Flagstaff trails I hiked on a regular basis, doing the out & back 19 times from 2006-09. It's doable in two hours or less at a brisk pace. Elden Lookout Road offers the option of continuing along a number of other area trails. One of my favorites is hiking Upper Oldham to Sunset Trail on Mt Elden.

Heart Trail

5 Completed 2 Reviews

The Heart Trail is a 2.3 mile track that winds its way from Little Elden Trail to Sunset Trail. Following the spines of a series of connected hills, Heart Trail climbs some 1,450 feet en route to Sunset. That and the 11.6% grade make this a challenging route, especially for those not used to hiking at high elevation. I've hiked Heart Trail about 70 times, usually as part of what I like to call, the HELL Hike - Heart, Elden Lookout Loop Hike. This is a 9.2 mile loop, according to the Flagstaff Trails Map.

A lovely hike with little hills along the way. Definitely a peaceful place to take a short stroll and listen to the birds.
