This is a great vortex that has been recently retrofitted with stairs and some hand/rope rails. Our mistake? We went to the top to park and hike. Horrible rain made the trail a mud bath. 2 of our group had gone ahead and called to...More

Great view of Sedona and the red rock background. There is a three dollar charge but it is good all day including sunset.

Nice Vortex trail on the mesa but has become a tourist trap in charging $$ to park so you can see the sunset vista over Sedona.

Great views from this spot all over to the north of the sedona area. The only this that was a bit annoying was the 3 dollar charge to park your car. Really?

We went to Airport Mesa to watch the sunrise and sunset (in January). We felt the sunrise was much better. It was cold with a strong breeze but the sun played off the rock much better. On top of that, it was far less crowded...More

We came here for the sunset and the vortex. There are 2 parking areas as you come up the road. The first is the closest to the lookout, but small and was full today. The second is further up and costs $3. It requires a...More

$3. Parking, but if you circle around and park near airport, it’s only 100 yards to the viewing spot.

Beautiful place, great FBO. Mesa Grille is awesome as well. Lots of views to take in, take your time, breath the high-mountain air, and enjoy.

Great views and breathtaking scenery. Lots of good hiking but also lots of tourists and even tourist buses. I enjoyed visiting this location twice during our trip to Sedona. We went both early in the morning and late in the evening. Both times there were...More

You can actually drive up and hike down ~ or park at the bottom and hike up. The Airport Mesa is actually a really good place to see the sunset, too. AND - the entire canyon is "sacred" and there are hundreds of trails in... More

If you are lucky enough to get a parking spot at the small lot near the Vortex, then it is 5-10 minutes maximum. However, that lot only holds 10-12 cars. At peak periods you are going to have to park farther up the mountain... More
