Trail Overview
Devil’s Bridge, Van Deren
Just before Van Deren Cabin you'll hit an amazing challenge that is short but a lot of fun. Devil's Bridge, one of the most beautiful arches in Sedona is not to miss. You'll have a quick .8 mile hike to see it but it's worth every step. Just before the arch is a fork. Go right and take a steep climb to the top. Take a left to view it from below. Both views are stunning. Road 152 is not recommended for unlicensed vehicles. You don't need a Red Rock pass at Devil's Bridge.
History
The cabin is named after Earl Van Deren, who bought the homestead in 1924. The north half of the cabin was constructed first, then in 1930, Earl married and built the south half. A breezeway connects the two parts. The metal roof is intended to preserve the cabin as long as possible. The delicate structure should be viewed not entered.
Getting There
Drive west on Highway 89A from Sedona about 3 miles to Dry Creek Road, marked by a major traffic light. Head north 2 miles and turn right at sign to Vultee Arch.
