A fairly level hike with great views of red rocks. Stop at Enchantment for a lunch or drink before or after and sit out on the deck for some great pic's.

This is a rather long trail, but beautiful and peaceful! Longer walk to the trailhead than we expected. Several choices of trails to take in this area.

We did this hike in early December, perfect weather as it was cool and sunny. yes, the first part of the hike is next to a resort but once you are past that annoyance, the hike is great. Canyon walls loam above and next to you as you stroll up the side of a dry creek. The end of the... More

The hike is about 3 miles one way, with slight change in elevation change (900 ft). Bring descent tennis shoes or hiking boots, water and some snacks. The trail gets a little steep towards the end. But the view of the canyon walls is very pretty. You will get a good workout. And the big plus: your phone does not... More

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.
