Around the corner from Kachina Woman vortex site at Boynton Canyon, you will find a private spot called Dead Man’s Pass. Ceremony will take place on your way up a small cove in the dry river bed. Two sacred trees guard the entrance. Continue if you want down the trail into a special wilderness area. Backtrack to Boynton and hike on your own if you would like to explore this Canyon. SpiritQuest will teach you the Hopi legend of Kachina woman and take you away from the tourists into a special side canyon where you can have private conversation and meditation.
Deadman’s Trail climbs gradually to the base of Mescal Mountain. This area has beautiful formations of Boynton Canyon walls and buttes are off to the left. Deadman’s Pass shares a trail-head area with Boynton Canyon and Boynton Canyon Vista trails. Deadman’s Pass Trail has been known throughout history as a special spiritual vortex for meditating.
