I'd heard that the best energy was in this canyon so I decided to experience it for myself. As I approached the pass/double vortex I heard beautiful flute music, coming from way up on the "masculine vortex" rock formation. The man, Robert, waved and said "come on up", to which I replied "are you kidding!?!?" But he talked me up... More

The trail may be great. I may have given it higher rating if I was able to complete the trail. I went at the end of January 2016. One mile into the trail, there was a long icy patch. Few people (with hiking pole) tried to proceed but ended up turning around. I am pretty sure everyone I met on... More

I love this trail especially when I get to the pinnacle at the top of Boynton Canyon Trail. To get there veer onto the Vista walk and you will see what I mean. It has this incredible view I could sit there for hours and just absorb it. I highly recommend on any of the Sedona hiking trails to take... More

I really enjoyed this trail. It was challenging, but not too challenging. The terrain was very diverse, going from shady, easy paths, to dense forest, river beds then up steep boulders. I saw lots of creatures (lizards, birds, etc.) and there were lots of opportunities to rest, take pictures and enjoy the scenery. The trail was not too crowded, but... More

We took this trail to watch the sunrise over the red rocks in the mornings while staying at a nearby resort. The path was a little bit icy because of the freezing temperatures the night before, but the hike was very manageable. Some parts were a little rocky but I'm sure that children can complete the trail easily. The views... More

Be sure to hike up to the vortex. There's a fascinating man who climbs to the top of the rock almost every day around 10:30am He plays his flute and shares inspirations with the whole valley. He carves hearts out of the red rock and passes them out to everyone who's there to hear his serenade. Wonderful and fulfilling spiritual... More

Years ago, you could get to the canyon quicker - now you have to take an extended trail AROUND the entire resort. But it's worth it. Lovely way to end a day of hiking - very relaxing.
