My daughter and I took several trails by mistake and ended up on the opposite side of the mountain. A little tip; Pay close attention to signs. After 3 hours we were a bit tired but it was worth it! You can feel the energy...More

We drove up to Airport Mesa early in the morning to watch the sunrise. It's a popular spot and was very crowded once we arrived. If you don't mind crowds it is a great place to take in the view and watch the sunrise.

Parking can be a little tricky at this location since there are limited parking spots, but there is a larger lot not too far away. The hike to the top can be a bit strenuous if you have trouble getting around. The final climb to...More

We ate here on NYE and the food was really good. We had salmon and ribs and everyone loved there food. The service was great and the atmosphere casual.

The moment we parked our VW bus and walked to the trail entrance, we were stopped by two gentlemen who pointed out the twisted juniper trees. They supposedly twist from the vortex energy. We hiked with our dog up the mesa and we were just...More

Very nice, airy, amazing lookout, airport loop hiking trail of about 3.5 miles, easy in terms of difficulty - very close (0.5 miles) to the Best Western Plus Inn of Sedona village near Tamaliza restaurant.

One must go to the top. You can hike down to the bottom of the Vortex mountain but don't go if you are not physically able to hike back up the rocky terrain. Park below and climb the vortex. We climbed it for 3 mornings...More

The views from this place are exceptional, but it is really quite busy. It is not the place to enjoy a peaceful sunset. There are throngs of others and you're almost shoulder to shoulder. note: helpful to bring a tripod.

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
