Good hike - great views
May 2021
It’s a long one. We went in the heat of the day and so seemed to go forever but well worth it! Great views and a good hike! Small children would have issues in parts - you are on a ledge and climbing rocks. Depends on how adventurous you are but our family with older sons enjoyed it!

Great Views, Go Early
May 2021
This was a great fairly easy hike around the mesa where the airport is located. We arrived at 6:45am and the very small parking lot was alreay full. We parked half mile up the road in a much bigger lot. This added .6 miles to our hike (1.2 both ways). We saw exactly 2 people as we were hiking around the mesa. Views are spectacular and the cactus on the trail are amazing. Well worth getting up early for. After the hike went to Mesa Grill at the airport for breakfast. Good food - reservations recommended even for breakfast!

Airport Mesa and Loop Trail...Priceless.
Apr 2021
After settling in to Sedona we went for a ride and decided to take in the Airport Mesa and its amazing views of Sedona from up above....And the view was well worth the time and effort.

We parked at the lot across from the Airport Overlook for $3.00 and took some great shots looking down at Sedona and even saw our hotel ( the Sugar Loaf Lodge ) from afar...The views are unobstructed and fantastic...After that we hiked down the Airport Mesa Loop hiking Trail, .6 of a mile to another vantage point and then up the hill on the Summit Trail...You get to the top and feel the energy of the scenery and all of its beauty...

This is one great hike that is moderately easy but well worth the effort....Just do it...

Awesome sunset views~
May 2021
Sunset views beyond our expectations - definitely worth a visit! We got there around 15 minutes before sunset and it was just perfect!

Great Sunset
May 2021
Great sunset viewing spot! Many people brought chairs and coolers, Go early to get a parking spot and be prepared for a little traffic just before and after sunset.

Lovely Views
May 2021
We had an unexpected hike to the mesa, as parking was diverted to the airport parking. If this should happen to you, it is easy enough to drop off and pick up non-hiking members of your group. It's just a mile or so and an easy trail. It is a popular spot, as is all of Sedona, but pretty views.

Longtime Friends Trip

Went at sunset. Hiked from the upper parking lot, down to the vortex area, then back up in time to see the sun sink. It was great. Until we got back up to the top and it was SOOOO CROWDED with others who drove up there and parked to watch the sunset. We went down the trail a bit in order to see the sunset without the crowds blocking it.

Sunset overrated
May 2021
We were told that sunset at Airport Mesa is not to be missed. We went there shortly before sunset and found that a large crowd had already gathered there. The red rocks were spectacular but hard to see in the shadows of the late afternoon. The sun set behind one of the hills and that was it. If you want to see a great sunset, go to the west coast of something. This one was totally uninspiring.
