Hiked Boynton on Nov. 2, 2013 - Get there early while there is parking and less people.... We arrived at 9:30a and hiked for 2 hours (didn't do the whole hike because of other plans). On our way out, we noticed there were no parking spots left.....The hike itself gave me a good sweat, I moved at a pretty fast pace due to minimal people around at that time. I was able to easily find shady places to rest when needed. The sights were beautiful, but the only drawback would be the resort and huge, beautiful houses along one side of the trail that took a little bit away from the experience, but it is definitely worth it to check out! (I posted some photos of our hike to share with you)

Easy trail for all ages and fitness levels. Plenty of Sedona eye candy to gaze at along the trail. We went on a day in early October, with mild temps, and most of our group still ran out of water so we had to turn back before we reached the end. It's dry and sunny so bring more water than you think you'll need, and wear sun protection since there's only intermittent shade.

the subtle change from desert scrub to pine forest with scattering of oak and maple leaves was unexpected.add an hour hiking time to stop and look and take pictures and just taking in the beauty of the mountain vistas.we never made it to the end as hike was much longer then we had had planned..the trail is 3 miles and and 3 miles back...we are all average hikers but with a couple of bad knees but still going strong....people we met when we were still going up at 2hours were coming back and still not making it...hike is not bad but just leave yourself the time to do it....well worth it!!!if you are going to hike or go to national parks more then 3 times buy a monthly pass...it all goes back to the parks!

this is a pretty hike through a rock canyon and then through a woodland on the canyon floor. we saw hummingbirds and other wildlife. it is about 3 plus miles to the end most of it fairly level. it can be very hot so definitely take lots of water. the signs indicate the trail is shorter than it is so we saw many people who were not prepared with enough water and who gave up. continue to the end and there is a pretty view after a scramble up a rocky trail. there is a place to rest on rocks overlooking the canyon at the end. The trail at the end where it ascends may be difficult for some people because of the loose rocks.

Really pretty hike. We had read it would be crowded but on the Sunday morning we were there, it was not. The first half has views of the red rocks. The second half is through a canyon so no views but more like a forest hike. But at the end, you climb up a little onto the rocks and have a nice view.

Nice hike. Mostly pretty flat so not too difficult.
