Nothing beats riding in such beautiful surroundings when somewhere off the distance someone is playing flute music. Super cool and out of the ordinary.

This is one of the two premier canyon hikes in this area north of West Sedona, the other being Fay Canyon, particularly nice for its arch located about a mile up the trail (but if you do take the Fay Canyon trail specifically to see that arch, get some advice about how to make sure you spot it, since the...

I went here on a weekday and parking was no problem. There is a bathroom at the trailhead too. As others have mentioned you will be hiking alongside a resort for awhile. Be patient. It will soon be past along with all signs of civilization. This trail has one of the easiest Sedona vortexes to get to, not too far... More

Had not hiked for awhile so this was a good trail to start. It is an out-and -back trail with a couple of offshoots, one to a lookout point over the Boynton Canyon that seemed popular. We stuck to the main trail into the canyon. In the first mile the trail parallels a resort, but there is enough vegetation(pines and... More

This was an easy hike- and it was an amazing day. It was quite chilly but as we walked it seemed just perfect.

This area took longer to get to but our experience here on both occasions was excellent. The trail is well maintained and easy. Lovely walk up to the vortexes. Parking is not easy and it's more crowded than other areas but that view from the top is hard to beat.

Variety of ecosystems seen during trail walk. beautiful scenery. glad we did it. worth the 6mile round trip trek. At the top of the trail you are surrounded by awesome canyon walls. would recommended to family and friends.

Great views, fairly easy rise. This is a good one for children.Two vortexes at the top. The ride from town may allow you some glimpses of wildlife. An early departure suggested as parking is limited.

Parking is difficult as the area services bikers and climbers as well as walkers.This is a calm walk along several streams and the path climbs a little into the canyon walls, but there are signs of the level of difficulty. Due to some recent flooding, several areas need repair but it is not dangerous.

Boynton Canyon is a hike that really has many different aspects to it. The red rock of Sedona, level portions to the trail, sunny areas as well as shady areas, rocky pathways with slight ascent, especially towards the end. The Enchantment Resort, as others noted, is in view for the first portion of the hike, but we were focused on... More
