Take in the tree with the stone cairns. Feel the tingling energy. Climb for the views. Easy access. Parking might be a trick as it is so easy to access, but worth circling to find one. There is another spot further on to catch evening sunsets. Look for it near a great little restaurant.

Plenty of parking at the top of this scenic overlook. If you want a panoramic view of the grandeur that is West Sedona, this is the place to be, especially at sunset. WOW! What a view! Don't forget to bring your camera!

worth the self - denial to roll outta bed at dark thirty to view the sunrise, full of awe over the spectacular rock glow as the sun hit and the hot airballoons that took off down canyon as well.

We came here twice, and it was WAY TO CROWDED and for me, I want some peace. We parked and there is a trail down to the Airport Vortex. There is a fence with a door, and it looks as if it's closed, but it's only to keep deer off the airport tarmac. Open, and walk down a bit and... More

Went there toward the evening to get pictures of the sunset! Was not disappointed!! The sun on the mountains was to die for. Unbelievable. Worth a persons time to go up there to enjoy the view!

Took visiting family and had a great meal. The food is upscale, the staff attentive without hovering and it doesn't cripple your budget. It literally sits on a mesa where the airport is which fun but not noisy as it's a small airport.
