Sedona AZ (June 21, 2014) – Boynton Canyon Trail will be temporarily closed due to increased black bear activity and to insure public safety as personnel from Arizona Game and Fish Department evaluate the situation.

The nearby Long Canyon, Fay Canyon, and Aerie Trails are also open for hiking into the Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness Area while Boynton Canyon Trail is closed. An exact date for lifting the closure has not been determined at this time.
