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:
