Easy access and the view is just amazing. It is a good starting point or finish point. Take enough time to walk all around, so you can really enjoy the view and the vortex itself.

So glad our Pink Jeep tour driver recommended this activity to end our perfect day in Sedona. Make time to be here at sunset. We had lots of fun chatting with other area visitors while enjoying a beautiful view.

We were only able to experience the Mesa during the day and wished we had more time to be able to see the sunset from the Mesa. Reviews of the Mesa say it is a great place to watch the sunset, but plan in advance because it was unbelievably packed when we tried to make it up there.

Easy to get to the is centrally-located scenic view. Although the mesa is steep, this is a short hike, and it's not to hard to find relatively easy ways to get up and down it - just take your time. Once at the summit, great views and picture opportunities, as you can see many of the other sandstone formations that... More

Take the time to do the short hike. You will notice the trees bent by the supposed-force of the vortex. You can feel the vortex on your skin. I had never been to a vortex prior to this one. The experience was pretty sensational in a low-key way..but once away from the spot...you still feel "it" and realize what you... More

Drive or hike up to the airport plateau and you will be glad you did. It overlooks all of Sedona and you get a really good idea of the layout of the area. The Red Rocks are just truly amazing.

There is an overlook on the Mesa that looks out over the entire Sedona area. Not to be missed, especially at sunset. It will give you the best photos. No real facilities, though, and parking could be better.

Gather with the crowds to watch the sun set, then wander over to the Church grounds and sit in the elaborate Medicine Wheel. The feeling is quite majestic.
