This takes only 5 mins from sedona and gives a great view of the city and surrounding area. Great first or last stop.

The rock with the "Vortex" is on the way up the hill to the left. There is a parking lot there and it's only a two or three minute walk to the best places--that is, the spots in or by "the vortex" which also have fantastic views of the red rock mountains surrounding Sedona. Fantastic for sunrise. On a full... More

Our local guide brought us up here and it was very spiritual. You could actually feel the vibrations going through your body. He did explain that it is the iron magnetism that creates this.

This is a must see view if you are visiting Sedona, The sunset cast shadows along the rock formations making them beautiful. Every sunset gives you a different view, you will not be disappointed.

Really nice view, and some short hikes that are easy if you are not much of a hiker. The airport is very close to Sedona off of 89A so very easy to get to. No cost to get into, but donations are accepted. Highly recommend this for the convenience and cost.

If you're in Sedona, you have to stop and check out the views. Absolutely beautiful! Parking is limited, but it is worth driving around until a spot opens up.

If it's not raining, it seems like everyone in the area takes the short drive up Airport Mesa to check out the sunset and hopefully capture that perfect photo. The colors will not disappoint. God is good and paints really good pictures for us ;-)

Take your iPhone or digital camera to the top of the mesa and shoot great panorama pictures of the entire red rock area. Climbing to the top is moderately safe for mobile people, kids included. At sunset you might get rewarded with a stunning vista if all factors, clouds, sun and haze, cooperate. At a recent sunset, we found a... More

This is a must do if you are in Sedona. It is pretty easy to get to, but you should go early to avoid crowds. It does get a lot of people up there, but the views are amazing, especially at sunset.
