After getting past the Enchantment Resort, which the first mile of the trail skirts, the trail drops into the canyon. Here it is easy to see why the hike is so popular. Large ponderosas crowd the canyon floor, offering shade and tranquility. The trail is great cruising trail, being almost perfectly flat. Its the hiking equivalent of candy.
The only substantial climb comes at the end. Boynton Canyon boxes up, and the trail ascends briefly to end at a Supai sandstone bench, with ok views back over the canyon. There are some nice canyon walls here that remind me of the walls around the Emerald Pools in Zion, though less stunning. Still, its a nice enough reward for the hike in, and the hike out again is pure pleasure.
