This is an incredibly popular multi use trail and has loads of hikers/walkers. It is best to avoid riding on this trail during busy times as your ride will be less fun due to heavy hiking/walking traffic. Remember to give hikers the right of way.

The Bell Rock Path is really the only true green beginner ride in Sedona. It is essentially a wide walking path that cruises the valley floor through some incredible scenery and passes both the Cathedral and Bell Rock Votex's.
