“Best sunset viewing in Sedona”
Review of Airport Mesa

Ranked #22 of 124 things to do in Sedona
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 October 2017

You won't be alone, but you will see a fine sunset from the vista area near the top of Airport mesa. An amazing number of people leave once the sun clears the horizon - maybe unaware that the sky turns more and more interesting as the rays play themselves out on the clouds. Arizona: a land of amazing sunsets.

We loved this hike and were a bit surprised how long it took. About 3 hours for us. I have a bad ankle and feel like I can manage well, however some places are more uneven and loose dirt/rock. Definitely take 2 water bottles per person and a little snack.

We paid the $3 to park at the Airport Overlook and hiked the trail to the Airport Mesa. The views of Sedona from this height were spectacular! The trail was well-marked and hugged the side of the mountain until we reached the Airport Mesa where the strongest vortex in Sedona is rumored to be. We had a great excursion here and will always remember the sights. We also met some really friendly people along the way. I felt like it was more locals than tourists. We truly enjoyed it!

There is an airport loop trail and a Sedona view trail. Both are easy and have good views of Sedona and the surrounding area.

We went twice to see the sunset here. The time of year we were there I didn't see anything spectacular. However, one night we were down by Pink Jeep Tours and the sun setting on the mountain were like they were on fire. Beautiful!
