Boynton Canyon Map

This 6-mile run into Boynton Canyon is relatively flat, allowing you to cover the ground very quickly. This route only gains 833 vertical feet round trip. Some sections of this trail are flat and sandy, making for easy running through exposed sections.


Soon you'll find yourself trekking through the heart of the canyon, with towering red rock cliffs on all sides!

This run includes an optional side quest to find the Subway Cave. This cave used to be a local secret... but it's a secret no longer. Boynton Canyon is now one of the most popular trails in all of Sedona, primarily due to the Subway Cave. The side trek to the cave adds additional mileage and some slightly more technical terrain than the main Boynton Canyon.
