  • When in Sedona you must view a sunset from Airport Road. Get there early to get a parking spot though  more »

  • This is such a calm hike. A little steep at the end but there are chains to help. My husband had a hurt foot but when we sat on the rock at the end of the trail, the warmth and the peace made him feel so much better. There were tiny planes flying over about every 15 to 20 minutes. Such an amazing view of Sedona. We have been to the city twice and took this hike both times. If we return, we will do it again.
  • Loved this vortex sport. Super serene! The parking lot fills up quick but for $3 you can park up the Mesa and walk a mile or so down to the vortex. Really lovely all around
  • Love the energy in Sedona. Visiting one of the vortexes was a special treat. Will definitely have to spend more time here in the future.
  • Good hiking and amazing energy. Even met a guy playing the flute. We had a awesome day. Best part was the kids' attitude. They had a great time.
  • Very pretty views but very busy. Parking at the top is $10 per vehicle but get there early if you want a good spot
