“great hike with unusual deep thick forest”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

bit long, but worth the hike, be prepared to hike in the forest that gets at least 20 degrees cooler than the first part of the hike.

“Must go and see the beauty!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Again, this is wonderful and there are so many opportunities to see the views and to challenge yourself to do more than you thought you could. Great maps at the start. Just go!

“A transitioning hike”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Like others have mentioned the first mile or so of the hike you have great views on one side and a resort and construction of the other side. Once you get away from that the hike is great. We went in March and the temperature was 75 degrees, however as we progressed into the forest area the temperature dropped at least 5 degrees and there was still some snow patches on the ground. When you get to this area it is sppectacular. The only sounds you hear are pine cones falling from the trees.

The hike is not overly taxing in terms of steep up and down hill portions, which was nice. There is a parking lot at the trail head and recreation sticker is required but they have a machine on site.

“In the Vortex”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Boynton Canyon Trail was easily accessible, as we stayed at the Enchantment Resort. The hike was fairly easy. We made it a point to get out daily and it took an hour or so. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets at this location. Located in one of the many areas considered to be an energy vortex in Sedona. I don't know about all that stuff, but it was very peaceful and beautiful.

“Noisy from resort”
Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Selected this hike because of what we read about the canyon and energy vortex. Liked the side trip up Vista trail to experience the vortex of the area - quite strong here. However, hiking along the canyon to see and hear construction from nearby resort ruined the quiet and solitude. Didn't go all te way up the canyon as decided to go to another hiking area. Too bad it ruins the scenery.
