Sedona's Energy Vortexes

Medium and healer Page Bryant sparked visitors curiosity in Sedona when she coined the term "vortex" to describe centers of highly concentrated energy. Bryant described Sedona as a special place of highly charged vortexes. Vortexes, if you are partial to believing in them, are thought to be especially conducive to healing, mediation, and prayer. This guide takes you to the heart of Sedona's main vortex hotspots. read more about Sedona's Energy Vortexes

For many visitors who come to Sedona to experience first-hand the dream-like, red rock landscape of this Southwestern destination, hiking Boynton Canyon Trail ranks high on the list of things to do. Boynton Canyon is one of the most popular box canyons in the Southwest, earning Sedona dozens of glossy travel magazine spreads over the years. The easily accessible, 2.5 mile trail into the canyon lies just southwest of town, starting at the same trailhead as another popular hike, Deadman's Pass Trail. Boynton Canyon trail, which leads you by groves of fragrant oak, juniper, and pine trees, meanders over dry washes, skirts the edges of the Enchantment Resort, and then descends toward the sandy bottoms of the red sandstone canyon. The prehistoric ruins of the Sinagua people are said to be hidden high in the canyon cliffs. More recently, Boynton Canyon has earned the reputation as a prime vortex zone, beckoning travelers looking to soak up the high desert energy from Sedona's so-called energy vortexes.

Cathedral Rock is one of Sedona's most famous scenic landmarks, a majestic monolith with red spires twisting up toward the sky, perfect for getting postcard-worthy vacation pics that will make your friends back home green with envy. Be warned that getting up close and personal with Cathedral Rock is not a simple endeavor, but it's completely worth the effort for the broad valley views and close encounters with a fascinating lava dike. You'll need to rock climb your way across and over steep, unshaded bald rocks and shallow clefts to get to rock's multilevel ledges and bases. Like all great hikes, challenging but rewarding. To get here from the junction of Routes 89A and 179, take 179 south 3.5 miles to Back-O'Beyond Road, which will be on your right. From there, go less than one mile to the trailhead parking turnout on your left.
