We found this place with a toy and went back to it to hike. There are many trail leading off of the msin trail. It is a beautiful trail to hike. This is also another vortex area and we learned that there is both male and female energy at this vortex. What's around the area for twisted tree trunks the... More

My wife and I hit this spot as soon as we got Sedona before checking into our hotel. We hadn't hiked in a while so we were definitely exhausted after, about 6.5 miles round trip. Pleasant walk through different types of terrain. Steep climb at the end that leads to a great view of the canyon.

Deadman's Pass/ Boynton Canyon Trailhead is located near the Enchantment Resort in Sedona. We chose the Deadmans Pass Trail on a recommendation from a local rock climber and were happy we did. The trail was easy/moderate hiking and not at all crowded. We only did about an hour and a half total out and back, but the views were beautiful,... More

There are two trails you can take, both are pretty easy. We are not hikers. Found the Vista trail more appealing because of the (what else) vistas. Incredible views and not too difficult. Although we do recommend hiking shoes, walking sticks for those with knee issues or balance problems. Hats, sunscreen, water, etc. read online about hiking in Sedona. Never... More

With a resort right behind it and the ease of the hike, it was very crowded even on a week day. I would recommend Cathedral or Bell Rock over this vortex hike.

This was easily accessible trail with easy hiking and fantastic red rock views. The trail was partially thru a wooded area but 360 views of the red rock canyon with having to climb very little

So easy to wander around here, even off the beaten path. It was amazing to see these red rocks up close in personal, attempt to see how far up I could climb and appreciate all the years of history these formations have seen. Great views for miles and miles and miles.

Fantastic views of many different red rock formations. One of the best places to see them. Should be in fairly good hiking condition. Can get hot in summer, bring lots of water. Won't be disappointed.

This is a wonderful hike that offers gorgeous views of the red rocks in the beginning even though it is right next to a resort, but after that you get to ascend to a more pine-forest area with more foliage. At the very top you get to climb on more rocks and bask in the majestic beauty of the red... More

a little rocky but the trail offers views for Enchantment Resort and the canyon. Stop at the overlook at the start of the trail. It is near a vortex and every once in a while a flute player will be serenading the canyon.
