I loved it

We came to Sedona to experience the vortexes. It is so beautiful and peaceful. We were on a path a set down for meditation while hearing a drummer drum. What a gift.

Took a jeep ride to Boynton Canyon and was surrounding by the reddist rocks I have ever seen. Our driver of jeep knew the history of the canyon and pretty much all rock formations. It was mesmerizing.

Around a 5 mile hike round trip up through the canyon. you walk along the canyon ridge in the Red Rocks and then down into the valley through huge pines. The wind through the pines was magical! from the valley floor up to the end of the trail where you are rewarded with stunning views of valley and cliffs! The... More

Beautiful trail along a canyon, big parts of it in shadow which makes it a great choice for hot sunny days. Not extremely spectacular, but definitely worth hiking.

Great Trail that starts near the Enchantment Resort. Mostly covered by trees, though there are a few exposed parts. Nice, mostly flat. Good views of Boynton Canyon's red rock and pines.

This was an easy hike around 6 miles round trip. Took us about 3 hours total. Worth the time for the views at the end. Recommend starting earlier in the day because it can be hot and the parking lot fills up.

First you must buy a red Rock pass for $5 at the parking lot. I must have been reading old information because it said the machine would take a five or ones. Not true. You must have a credit card to purchase the pass. A tour guide told us it was a short easy hike. The Vista trail is not... More

The Boynton Canyon trail itself is wonderful. However, we used to be able to drive thru the Enchantment Resort to park and hike. Now the resort prohibits this. The result is to park outside the resort and hike along the edge of the resort for over a half hour, along ugly barbed wire fences and backsides of buildings, until reaching... More

The hike is good and my husband and I enjoyed it. It was about 6 miles of flat trail and rocky trail. Definitely bring tour water for this one. The view was pretty but not the best we've seen.

This is a wonderful hike with flat land and climbing of red rock (stair like) there are many beautiful views and it is both peaceful and inspiring all at the same time. There is also a vortex here and I found it to feel very good.
