It gets progressively steeper. There are rock steps some placed, some natural, and some may be carved out. I wouldn't say the last bit of the trail is straight up but it is a climb. There is an outcropping before you get to the top where you can rest and see a wonderful vista. When we got all the way up there were a few kids up there (with their parents, of course) ranging in age from about 8 to 14. You can walk onto the "devil's bridge" for a picture but it is a little scary just because you are so high up and there are no hand rails. I would recommend proper footwear.

We sat and relaxed on the bridge and ate our lunch, sandwiches we’d bought at the Wildflower Bread Company in Sedona. Mine was Turkey and Brie on herbed bread, pretty fancy for a hike, but it hit the spot- a tasty, upscale designer sandwich out in the rocky landscape of Arizona where the sky seems to go on forever and the shadows from the sun make the view change constantly. The hike back down was easy once I got over the rocks and back to the gravel-y trail. The trees and cacti are so beautiful against the red rock, the trail is peaceful, if crowded at peak times, and I highly recommend this hike.

I recommend getting a nice Sedona map in a bookstore or elsewhere. It's called Experience Sedona - Recreation and Activity Map, and it has all the rocks named, trails marked, etc. And it's all in one map rather than buying individual topographic maps.
