For years we have driven up to the airport mesa to see the shades of red and orange illuminate the red rocks of Sedona. Now, they have the nerve to charge $3 to park in a unpaved lot to walk across and view the rocks....More

You pay $3 to park and watch a sunset with a crowd of people and it's not the best place to see even see the sunset. We did an easy 1.1 mile roundtrip hike to Baby Bell Rock the next day to watch the sunset...More

After reading reviews this was the spot to see the sunset. You pay $3 to park. It attracts a good crowd. Unfortunately we didnt see the best sunset..no clouds..which make a great sunset!

This is an easy hike to one of Sedona's famous "Vortexes". Whether you are in tune with the metaphysical nuance of the land or not, a beautiful place to get a panoramic view of the majesty of Sedona.

There is a parking lot that charges a small fee to park across from the site near the airport where you can watch the sunset. The secret is out so it can be crowded but the view is worth it. When I went, a violinist...More

We have been visiting Sedona for years now and always enjoy taking Sedona “newbies” up the airport road for a great panoramic view and photos. This time the car park we used in the past was pay to park. $3 a day, yeah not bad...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

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
