Such an amazing shape. Makes a great photo backdrop as well as demonstrating the beautiful results of rock formations over the millennia.

You can park at dedicated areas to the north and south of the rock. The trail at the north parking is shorter. Beautiful to photo.

Bell Rock is a bit outside of Sedona proper, so you may want to stay in the town and drive the few minutes to Bell Rock. There is so much red rock scenery everywhere that you shouldn't limit yourself to a Bell Rock view, I... More
