You need to use the paid parking lot (only $3). You get quite a panoramic view of the typical forested red cliffs if the Sedona zone. Certainly worth driving up.

This overlook has fantastic views, and is worth it to pay $3 to park and stop. They are planning, to expand the parking and lookout point! Next time I visit I will stop here again!

Parked up at the airport Mesa. Parking attendant was very friendly and informative. Walked down to the vortex site and had a strengthening experience. The views are gorgeous and we had a great time. I’ll be back!

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
