My rating for this hike is mostly for the sweet box canyon at the end. The arch is a nice side trip, but you'd be foolish to end it there. Climbed up to the arch and checked it out. There's a funny looking 'indian ruin' that some bored hikers must have built. Also checked out the side trail up to the top of the arch. I've heard so much about Boyton canyon and when I did it earlier this day I wasn't terribly impressed. But when I did this short canyon that's just 'another Sedona canyon' on the map, I guess I wasn't expecting too much. So when I saw the final box canyon I was just overwhelmed with its grandeur and beauty. There's a few trails in the box area worth exploring. The ones I enjoyed were the one to the right and goes up to an overhanging alcove and wraps around to a lookout, another that goes to an 'overhanging arch' with real indian ruins underneath, and another just west of that that goes up to another lookout point.

The dirt road to the TH is in great condition and they even bulldozed and new parking lot. This canyon receives far less visitors than its sister canyons and most just hike up to the arch and foolishly head back. :lol:

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
