This was my first experience of an earth vortex. Wander around a bit, and you will begin to feel it. Everyone describes a unique experience... You may only know if you go there to experience it yourself. :)

Great views especially for sunset. If it looks like it will be an awesome sunset get there early and there is also a $3 parking fee. Also can pick up the airport trail (4-5 miles ) that goes around the Mesa to see the East...More

Trail is well marked and there are railing ropes at the top to help the last few climbs. Worth the time and effort.

This was our first stop on our trip to Sedona. Worth the $3. Quick little 1/2 mile walk to the vortex at the bottom. Don't forget to save your receipt and come back for the sunset.

This is a great place to watch the sunset because you can see the sunset light on the cliffs to the north and east of Sedona. I'd say there were over 100 people watching the sunset with us, including a yoga class, so be prepared....More

This was a fun loop trail about 3.5 miles. It had some challenging parts as far as elevation climb, but nothing too difficult. Be sure to get there early to get a good parking spot. I can imagine doing this before sunset would be amazing.

There's a great trail here at the airport. Starts on the top and winds your way around. Bring water, and your camera. There's some great views to be had. And the climb is pretty easy.

Stopped in after a helicopter ride and waited for the sunset. Great service and drinks. Get a pitcher of margaritas!

The walk was worth it. You can see so much from the top. we were in a group of 8 and would do it all over again.

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
