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!

This is a gorgeous way to see 180 degree views of Sedona. We hiked the trail as well. It’s great way to get some quick exercise in.

From Airport Vista, you get fantastic, 270-degree views of the town of Sedona and the surrounding countryside without a lot of effort. There is a short, steep climb to the top of the big red rock. It can be safely done because there are steps...More
