Deadman Pass Trail (to Boynton Vista Trail)

NOTE: The following summary information is to help with hike selection and is not intended to be used for hiking the trail. For your safety and enjoyment, please obtain a copy of Sedona Hiking Guide which is available here.

Summary:   A short hike along an old jeep trail with views of Boynton Cliffs and Mescal Mountain.

Challenge Level:  Easy

Hiking Distance:  About 1 1/2 miles each way, 3 miles round trip

Trailhead Location:  The trailhead parking is shared with Boynton Canyon trailhead.

Description:  The hike is through groups of Manzanita plants with good views to the left and right. The trail is about 1 1/2 miles long and ends when it intersects the Long Canyon Trail. Because it is a short hike, after we hiked back to the beginning, we decided to hike the Boynton Vista Trail up to the Vortex site. The views are great here.
