Boynton Canyon


Get ready for a scenic journey into ancient times. Prehistoric Indians made this area of Sedona home thousands of years ago. In fact there are still ancient Indian Ruins and burial sites hidden within the astounding beauty of this box canyon. Boynton Canyon is still sacred to the Yavapai Native Americans who consider Boynton as their place of origin.

Not only is its historically magical, but the New Age folks swear by it “vortex powers“, a spiritual energy field that emanates from the inner earth.

Boynton Canyon Trail is a 8 mile moderate hike with a 500 foot gain in elevation.  It ends in a moderate climb to an overlook in a large box canyon.   The first third of the trail skirts the Enchantment Resort.  This is a private resort and access is prohibited.
