Boynton Canyon is considered one of Sedona's most scenic canyons and a powerful vortex site. The canyon has lush riparian vegetation, towering red sandstone formations, hoodoo rock spires and ancient Sinagua Indian cliff dwellings dating back to 1,200 A.D. The view from these ruins is stunning. The sandstone and limestone sculptures loom 1,000 feet high on both sides. At the mouth of the canyon sits Enchantment Resort.

Trail was lovely with a nice mix of red rock and sandy path terrain. The best views are at the end of the trail, just beyond the 'trail's end' sign to the right. Here you'll enjoy spectacular vistas from the rim of a tall red rock formation. The trail is relatively crowded--at least in mid-march. Water supply and good hiking shoes are a must. Trail is mostly flat and easy with occassional patches of steep terrain.

Fun, scenic trail. Must climb the rocks at the end for great veiw back across the canyon. Shady, and lots of places to rest. Take a lunch, and enjoy.
