This is the best place to be at sunset. You get to see all the rocks laid out before you. It is quite something and if your lucky there will be someone serenading you at sunset :-)

There are two viewing areas, with a trail between the two of 0.6 miles. Or you can drive to the other lot, free parking which is very unusual in Sedona?!

Nice way to view the sunset but no need to go out of your way for it. Lots of people come here to watch the sunset. Best on a relatively clear day. Tends to get a bit crowded. It is easy to get to.

This very popular site is wonderful for viewing the scenery, including sunrise and sunset. Very limited parking at the base (10 spots) (you need the local parking pass), though I'm told there's more parking up the hill at the airport. Beyond the view, this is...More

This is probably the only airport road you would ever want to travel on, lol. It slowly climbs up the mountain until you are at the top overlooking all of Sedona. It also happens to be a vortex spot where the energies balance you out...More

You can get a great view of Sedona from here, and hike the Sedona View trail down to the airport vortex. A fairly easy hike.

The vortex parking lot is right by the vortex. You simply walk up a hill, about 100 ft high. Easy. The airport parking lot is about 1/4 mile up hill on the road from the vortex parking lot. There is a trail that leads down... More
