Lots of amazing places in Sedona. We were excited to see as many things as possible and hike as many mountains as possible during our week stay. This one cracked us up. We went to the location to park. It was packed out and we had difficulty parking. Once we did we saw that it was a short hike. People... More

We started our hike at the Airport Loop parking lot as the first parking area is very limited in space. We followed the trail to Airport Mesa. I walked the designated (easier?) marked route.Warning to people - some "steps" are rather high & can be difficult to maneuver. My partner went up the more adventurous way. The view from the...

We had heard the sunset was beautiful from here so we went. So did a lot of other folks so jockeying for a good pic is rough and enjoying it well....but it was OK. There are also trees/bushes that obstruct a full view in parts.

We stopped here several times during our three days in Sedona. Our group included two adults and four kids (10,14,17,19). We watched the sunset from the lookout area with the parking lot right across the street. Go early to enjoy the changing colors on the rocks. One morning, we climbed the small mountain just before the airport lookout. There's an... More

Beautiful! Go early morning (before 10:00 a.m.) as parking is limited, the scenery more beautiful and it is not as hot. It's about a mile round trip. Be prepared to climb a bit. Not good for bad knees.

When you are in Sedona, be sure drive up to the airport to watch the sunset. Go early as the parking lot is kinda small and people park all over. Your patient's will be rewarded as the sun sets, the valley looking towards Jerome turns golden, and you can see forever. We have a condo there and have never been... More

We went to the Airport Mesa for the Vortex, as it's considered as one of four locations with the strongest Vortex. Unfortunately, we didn't feel anything special, maybe it's not for everybody. However, it's a great location to view the city on one side and the rocks on the other. It's not completely a waste of time going there, actually... More

Went in search of the vortex, and regardless of its exact location (whether on the mesa, or in its saddle between the next hill over) this is a glorious, sacred spot on this great earth. Wonderful vibe at the top as your fellow travelers are either all meditating, taking photos, or just relaxing. Made you feel good about existence, pure... More

We went to the airport Mesa to take pictures twice during our trip. The views are spectacular for sun rise and sunset. The restaurant is also a great stop.

Very relaxing loop - flat most of the time with spectacular views and most importantly no crowds. There is also a short detour to vortex
