A Great Vortex Hike with Shade
Boynton Canyon Trail is one of the most popular trails in Sedona. The drive back to the parking lot at the trailhead is one of the most scenic drives in Sedona. The trail itself winds along Enchantment Resort, at first and then back into an amazing canyon that is often shaded. There are Indian ruins and this is considered a vortex trail.
At the parking lot you will see signs leading to the trailhead. From there you will wind pass the resort and shortly after a mile the trail moves down towards the canyon floor.
At about 3 miles in the canyon becomes narrow. Many people stop here, but if you are feeling adventurous you can walk the creek-bed (often dry) and stay right at the fork. Look for a small path that heads through some vegetation and you will eventually be surrounded by amazing cliffs. (Well worth the extra effort.)
