I have traveled to Sedona many times and this is the first time I have visited the airport lookout to see the rocks. It was great. not many people when we first got there so we got a chance to take nice photos and enjoy the scenery until a bus pulled up and then they took over but other than... More

sunrise was ok - about 20 cars. Mountains far off and there are alot of wires, parking lots, etc. that come into your picture. Didn't get there for sunset which is suppose to be very crowded. Not a great choice for a good photograph.

First stop in Sedona-what a view!!! Close to where we stayed. Easy to get at (took a little to get used to the steep drive up.) Definitely do the sunset.

I really love vortexs in this area, and this one is only a very short hike to the top. The parking can be a bit difficult since there is very limited space. Hike to the top, relax and enjoy the views...and the energy from the vortex!

One of the best views of Sedona is only 2 minutes walking distance from the parking lot. We came here twice on our trip because it was so beautiful and an easy place to watch the sunset or sunrise.

We hiked this trail from our condo. The trail circles the Airport mesa and you are able to view all sides of Sedona.

A couple of people mentioned this spot to watch the sunset, so we went for it. Great location to watch sunset! Beautiful! There is a spot along the road on the way up to the top, so make sure you drive all the way up for THE view. Parking lot very close… I was surprised how easy/quick it was to... More

Everyone must go there, it was cold and a poor sunset ,but was still very crowded. A great spot for sunsets but way to many people. Close to town , go early for a spot and parking as it does fill up quick

Stopped here on a clear day to check out the view and we weren't disappointed. Hear that it's a great sunset locale but crowded. We beat the rush but never saw the sunset. Nice for a few great vista shots of the amazing red rocks of Sedona.

Great views. To add something special, eat in the Airport restaurant. Great views, food and service. Had a great blackened prime rib.
