We hiked part of Boynton Canyon Trail while hiking Long Canyon to Dead Man's Pass, to Mescal Trail. We did the Boynton part to visit the vortex there. Was definitely worth the trek, and there were good views of Enchantment Resort as well as the rest of the canyon.

Ya know this was named the best hiking trail in Arizona. It is a beautiful hike. There is a vortex at the end if you into those. Everyone is halfway decent shape should go and enjoy the hike and be in nature.

OK. I avoided going to Sedona for years; all the hype about energy vortices was putting me off... only guess what? It's not hype. Boynton, especially. I have never experienced a sensation like the one I had on Boynton and it was fab-u-lous! Amazing. Really.

This hike is wonderful because it is mostly shaded. You get to hike through a few different types of vegetation from pine to oak groves and great rocky cliff sides. At the end you are rewarded with a great view of the canyon trail you just hiked through and amazing views all around. Since it is a little more out... More

This hike was accessible to us via our hotels property (Enchantment Resort) The paths are quite rocky with many obstacles to step over and around so if you have any issues, you might want to do the shorter hike on property at Enchantment. This is an easy hike for avid hikers but the views are not as good as the... More

It was a nice little hike for the Sunday before leaving Sedona. There was a nice gentleman that gave the women in our group a heart shaped rock and played the flute on the rock formation. He also explained to us the energy at the vortex. Very pleasant experience.

If you are up to a beautiful moderate 6 mile round trip hike take this one! Beautiful long canyon, easy walking but gets a little rocky at the end. You have to go to the end and see the fantastic view.
