Beautiful hike! Amazing views

This hike is very challenging but well worth it to see the spectacular views! Not meant for shoes that have no grip.

There is one part where it's bad, but it's the only place that it is that bad. Otherwise I was not scrambling.

Some difficult footing, I'd recommend hiking poles. This one's tough on the knees. Be prepared for you gain, loss, gain loss in elevation. A long one but well worth it. Great scenery and fall colors!

This trail gets 5 stars because the views along the way and the view at the top is totally worth it - but it is definitely a difficult trail. I would consider it more rock-climbing as there are multiple places where I was crawling on my hands/knees. I took my 60 pound boxer and had to lift him up/down in a couple spots. Even if you're in shape, the elevation changes so quickly it gets hard to breathe - my suggestion is take a couple breaks along on the way up and enjoy the views!

Awesome

Gorgeous views particularly as you reach the top. Have to scrabble a bit to reach the pass, and we definitely were feeling intimidated when the wind was blowing because the ledge to climb up wasn’t very wide, but the hike was worthwhile!

Awesome hike up...views along the way are fantastic. We came in via Yavapai trail head and hiked Slim Shady to Templeton to get to bottom of Cathedral Rock Trail. We didn't do the Templeton loop and just backtracked so round trip it was 11km for the whole trip. Slim Shady and Templeton were easy and very few people.

Fantastic trail. Wife thought because distance was short it would be easy. Be prepared!

Beautiful not crowded!

This is a phenomenal trail for one that is rated easy: incredible views within the first mile and very little elevation gain. If you have just one hour in Sedona this is the trail for you. Less than 3 minutes from Rte 179. We had come out of the Grand Canyon the day before and our legs were shot - this was the perfect easy trail to still get a taste of Sedona.

The only downside: the perfect solitude and quiet was obliterated first by a pink Jeep and then by a band of ATVs . Would have been a 5 star without that

Nice wee stroll

Very beautiful, lots of shade and seen lots of Blue Jays

Quick easy walk with beautiful scenery...

I love Boynton Canyon - beautiful red rocks and amazing positive energy throughout!

We went 2 days ago, and it is definitely a hard trail. Some spots we were using all fours to climb. So worth it at the top. Windy and somewhat cold so bring that extra layer, hat, and gloves to keep warm.

Nice and easy trail. Great for all levels and a great warm-up trail before a harder hike. Amazing views going out and coming back. If you can, make sure to climb the unmaintained trail at the end to get some amazing pictures over the tree line.

loved this trail, though there is a lot of noise from the resort and some of the rocky areas make it more moderate than easy. great sunrise photos of color on the red rocks

Favorite trail in Sedona! Especially from the Baldwin connection.

This trail is at some places tricky, but at the end, it is breathtaking!!! Hope I can do it again!

I actually got lost but the hike was great!

Hard but a must see! I lost my sunglasses on the way up, when coming back it was sitting on trail rock piers! Many thanks to hike mates!

A neat trail that is fairly scenic, but not overly so. You get a bit of canyon views and canyon river and not overly crowded like some trails / parking in Sedona.
