What a beautiful hike. The hike started and finished with a deer within feet of me at the trailhead. The trail was nicely groomed and the varying views spectacular. If you enjoy hiking and are in Sedona, a must hike.

My family visited in May and this was our first hike. We started quite early around 8:30am and had plenty of water and appropriate shoes. It was a gorgeous hike with varied scenery as well as hiking skill levels. The major challenge, if you are not a seasoned hiker, is simply the stamina to complete. There was so much beautiful...

This trail runs approx. six miles and includes quite a few shaded areas surrounding the Enchantment Resort past the catchina girl and vortex rock, esp. if you start early enough in the day! Rugged at times, loose rocks and stones, cairns to guide your way however there are quite a few stone steps too. I would rate this a moderate... More

I went on a tour with an Amerindian shaman and it was the highlight of my tour. I could feel the energies in the area. If you are not sensitive to such things, it would be worth it just for the views and the history of the area. I also liked it because it is more of an out of... More

We just returned from Sedona hiking trails and revisited Boynton Trail, from many years ago. It is easy to find as it right behind the Enchantment Resort. The first part is flat and easy to walk but as you climb around the resort there are rocks to climb over, around and up and down. We are in our mid to... More

We had a nice hike on the BC Trail. A local however got my kids really nervous by implying there was a bear ahead. That "joke" plus the tightness of the trail we were on made for some anxious moments but walking right up against the rock face was a highlight of the hike.

Have been to many of the vortex spots and they are usually so crowed at dusk that you can't even park. This one is large enough, and little hike, that most people pass it up. It is the best view anywhere. The colors change by the minute, there is a lot to climb and places to just sit. It is... More

This trail is a nice walk but it gets very hot. Taking you past Enchantment Resort, you go straight into the canyon and is a longer walk than you expect- so be prepared and take lots of water. Tip- freeze one bottle of water so when the other bottle gets hot you still have some cold water left.

Nice long hike that was not challenging and full of beautiful scenery! Not sure we experienced the "vortex" though!
