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.

While it seems very strange to give an airport--any airport--5 stars, the sunset views from the overlook across from Airport Mesa in Sedona are unparalleled. Highly recommended for families, couples, and friends alike for at least an hour as the setting sun lights up the red rocks of Sedona.

This is a lovely little hike, just off the road, below the airport. The view was terrific, but…and I realize I'm being selfish here…there were too many people, making any climbing difficult for fear of hitting someone below or being hit by someone above. The people made it noisy and we just couldn't find the "calm" which we sought. Thankfully,... More

This is a must! You must go to the Sedona Airport Look out. It was an awesome view of the Sedona & mountain ranges
