  • Airport Mesa is a nice, easy trail off of the main road. Easy hiking trails around the Mesa, a little harder from the middle going up to the top. Such a lovely, peaceful place to enjoy one of the main...  more »
  • Great walk but very uneven path that offers great views of the Sedona area. Take plenty of water and enjoy the views  more »
  • Pretty crowded for sunset but still beautiful spot and easy to access; headed up to the vortex after sunset to see to full moon which was even more impressive  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
