A hike to a beautiful box canyon.

Description

This is my favorite trail in all of Sedona. The trailhead is at the end of Boynton Canyon Road near the entrance of Enchanted Spa and Resort. The trail goes along the property of Enchanted Spa for about one mile. This is the rockiest part of the trail.

Soon after leaving the view of the spa, the trail becomes flat and sandy. This section is a pleasure for hiking and very easy. The path is surrounded by red rock cliffs and is very beautiful, especially as the sun sets. However, I prefer to hike this trail early in the morning. No one is on the trail, and the peacefulness is amazing.

As you continue down the trail, the path winds into a beautiful forest. Eventually after a little more than three miles, you reach the end which is a box canyon. Return the way you came for more views of the red rock through the forest.
