Devils Bridge Professional Review and Guide
"A short hike to a striking natural arch in the Red Rock–Secret Mountain Wilderness. On the first section of the walk, you’ll parallel a wash. The trail is well-used and easy to follow. Then the trail turns right and starts to climb the slope toward the imposing mass of Capitol Butte. It soon reaches a red sandstone ledge and works its way to the top via a series of stone steps. Follow the trail a few hundred feet east to the top of the bridge."
--Bruce Grubbs, Hiking Northern Arizona (Falcon Guides).
We hiked the Devil's Bridge today and it was very enjoyable. There was quite a few people on the trail, but spaced out enough that you didn't mind very much.
We went up past the bridge to the "pedestal rock" that over looks it. From below, you think that there are some Native American caves in the base, but there aren't. However, the view from that vantage point would lead a person to believe that it was used as a look out many years ago. The rock formation is quite impressive and the view only added to the wonderment of it all.
Like many other hikes in the area, Spring and Fall would be the best times, or early in the morning during the Summer season.
