My 8 year old daughter and I hiked along to Boynton Canyon Trail and up the Vista Trail to the Boynton Canyon Vortex. The head of the trail was easy to find, with parking along the roadside. The trail itself was well marked with interpretive signs and rock cairns. We wound up from the valley floor up a steep hill... More

The trail starts off very easy, smooth, and mostly flat. A side trail to a vista is also easy. But the trail into the box canyon skirts the Enchantment Resort, along a cliff overlooking the resort. That part of the trail is much more challenging, not for its elevation gains but because of the uneven surface and loose rocky terrain.... More

This was our first hike during our stay in Sedona and we really enjoyed the views. It's not as physically challenging or visually rewarding as Cathedral Rock or Devils Bridge, but. still a great hike if you have time during your stay in the area.

Wasn't and incredibly long or difficult hike. Lots of areas where you can walk abreast and talk rather than in a line. Some in the sun and some in the shade. Last bit of the hike is a scramble/climb, which we actually liked.

Parking is crazy busy there. The trail has a short, steep but not treacherous path off to the right that allows you to take a short but steep climb up to the vortex. Great views. if you take the other part of the trail, it is nice,,, some ups some downs and views of the Enchantment Luxury resort. Some good... More

We loved hiking this trail and the beauty along the way. We saw many trees affected by the vortex and other really neat things! Love the options of various trails to take!

Very beautiful views, an easy and accessible trail. Enough exercise to deserve a delicious lunch at Pumphouse Station Urban.

Nice walk along the canyon and creek! You go through the red rocks, pines, oaks, and see it all... Not the best for far views, but an experience I'd recommend! ~6.4 miles roundtrip
