Home to the area's largest sandstone arch, Devil's Bridge Trail offers visitors a chance to explore and experience rugged terrain without the strain of an intense hike. Lined with cacti, rock formations, and desert foliage, the trail provides the opportunity to hike to the top of its namesake arch as well as its shaded underside. Though the 2.9 km (1.8 mi) roundtrip hike from the trailhead is moderately difficult, it's fully paved and accessible to hikers of all levels and capabilities. Keep in mind that the arch itself is not fenced off, so exercise caution.

Great hike for sure , amazing views and only one problem waiting to go on the bridge . We had to wait like 45 minutes but it was worth it ! more »
Great hike, but should be noted that it is not an easy hike. It is mislabeled and is more like 4 miles round trip with a steep incline near the end
Parked just after 5am and was the second car in the overflow lot. Took about 45 min to reach the bridge. I was back in my car just after 7am. Don't attempt to drive the unpaved portion unless you have a lifted truck or ATV. Saw a huge tarantula on the roadway coming back. Well worth getting up early.
