If you are short on time and do not have the time to do entire airport loop, overlook is good to enjoy beauty in Sedona airport area.

The views from this location are beautiful. It's a great place to be to watch the sunset. You can see Coffee Pot Rock from here and most of Sedona. Great place for those picture takers.

Hello, I did not eat at the MesaGrill at Sedona Airport. I went to the Airport Mesa Vortex located near the Airport Mesa. It is an outlook point. There is a small parking area on the left. The views are spectacular.
