The Airport Mesa is a fairly easy climb with good views once you reach the summit. We were looking for the vortex which is supposed to be on this mesa, no such luck. Once you reach the top, there is plenty of room to sit and take in the scenery and hopefully experience the energy vortex. It is worth the... More

This is a wonderful place to visit for a sunset view of the red rocks of Sedona. The trail is moderately easy to use.

Went up to Airport Mesa twice. Once in the afternoon to take sunset photos of the views of the Red Rocks and again at dawn the next morning. If you go at dawn, it is WORTH IT! But know that it will be COLD! Bone-chilling cold. And the wind hits the viewpoint like an icy blade.

This is a nice hike, takes a couple hours, just perfect if you are just starting your vacation, or want an easy hike where you don't need to scramble and/or have a lot of ascents. Very pretty views of the area, uncrowded trail, easy to find!

We heard this was a great place for a Sedona sunset. It did have great views, but once about 300 people were there, there was nothing peaceful or romantic about it. Especially when a group of people stood right in front of us and pushed us out of our spot. A little later we hiked the "vortex" trail. We did... More

Before 7:00am, we climbed the short (but very steep) trail to the top of the Airport Vortex. Totally worthwhile! We saw a beautiful view of Sedona at sunrise! It was very cold and windy.

Okay, you can argue that there are so many to choose from, but this one is probably the most iconic. Parking is pretty easy, viewing places ask for a dollar donation, and then just stand back in awe. There isn't another place on earth quite like this.

We drove up to the top of airport mesa and watched sunset. A large parking area is available and a short walk across the street to the area to view sunset. It is also a beautiful view of the whole valley including Sedona. It gets pretty crowded so get there a little early.

We started our Cathedral Hike from here so it added 1.2 miles to the total hike. After it was a short walk up to the Airport to watch the sunset and enjoy a glass of wine.
