Rock Formations Boynton Canyon/Vista Approach

This website is not designed to provide directions or navigation of the trails but solely intended to give you an idea what you may see and experience on the hikes.  


Boynton Canyon Vista can be reached by a short 0.6 mile hike from the Boynton Canyon parking lot.  The trail is easy to moderate with many rock steps up to the saddle of the vista.   The saddle is between two rock spires and is held by some to be a vortex.    From the parking lot, one takes the Boynton Canyon Trail for 0.4 miles.  A side trail to the right leads 0.2 miles to the vista.  The trail outline disappears every 5 seconds.  Click on Picture to Enlarge
