Go on a day with lots of fluffy clouds...OMG, you will get the most beautiful sunset, ever! Golden oranges, yellows, reds, pinks, fuchsias, mauves, all against a deep blue...it just doesn't get better than that! Take a look at the rocks across the vista being kissed by the setting sun...all aglow with a warm set of color palette apart from... More

The spot is popular, but provides a beautiful view of the rocks and of the town of Sedona. Don't leave immediately after the sun sinks below the horizon; if there are clouds in the sky the colors deepen and get more beautiful as the crowd leaves. Bring a sweater!

went here based on tripadvisor reviews. they were right. beautiful spot to watch the sunset. get there at least 30 minutes before because it gets crowded and you want to get a good spot. park across the street in a large parking lot than cross it to the viewing area. there's no charge but they do ask for a $1...

We parked in the parking lot for the airport loop trail and started to walk. To the left we scrambled to a small mound that had some great views of the town below us. We weren't aware of the airport mesa at the time, until a very low flying prop plane passed over us. Over in the other direction was... More

A quick drive to get an overview of the city among the red rocks. A few pull off's have ledges that can be great photo ops.

We went up here our 1st night in Sedona to see the sunset. It was so crowded that night but it does had nice sunset views close to town.

We went to the Airport for sunset. Hearing that the overlook is crowded and over-rated, we decided to hike the Airport Loop Trail. We lucked out and pulled right into a parking spot, but it was the only open one. Of course, the views are breathtaking, as are most in Sedona. We left from the parking lot and went to... More

Great views of Sedona in it's entirely. The best photos we took were from this location. Would like to try the restaurant at sunset if we return.

Short scenic drive up there and worth it to see the view. Great place to see sunrise or sunset! Changing colors on the rocks all day long.
