Boyton Canyon Trail in Sedona is yet another epic place to visit while in Arizona. The roads leading to Boyton Canyon Trail are semi paved at times, gravel at other times, and sometimes just plain red dirt. Multiple jeep tour companies provide tours of all...More

The parking lot near the trail was filled, but the energy was still compelling at the entrance to the Boynton Canyon Trail. Love the feel of the area although it is not far from the main highway through Sedona.

If you go there during a national holiday, there is no fee to park. The same is true for any national park. However, the airport mesa parking fee will still be $3.00 no matter what day you go.
