Waze actually took us to the airport loop by accident. We planned on going to cathedral rock but somehow ended up here. It was perfect easy and they we took the airport loop trail with out young son...it was 3.5 miles and challenging for him...More
We parked up the hill at the beginning of the trail. The hike is .6 mile and fairly easy. We made it to the summit around noon after a light morning rain and saw some pretty amazing views. The energy level is very high up...More
We just missed the last parking slot on the first parking area, but found plenty more near the airport at the top. A $3 parking fee is worth it. A little more than a 1/2 mile hike, delivers you to the destination. A little bit...More
We found this from the locals. Truly stunning. $3 to park. At 4 the wind was blowing and very chilly. We went back the next day around 12 before heading out and was able to enjoy the spectacular views and take a video. This place...More
The Restaurant was a recommendation, with a 15% off coupon. Excellent Reception, Views, Menu, and Service. All American was Fair; Potatoes were dry; Short Stack of Pancakes were Good, but could have been less dry. Great Views. We will likely not return for Breakfast.
After reading about crowds at sunset, we visited at Sunrise! Cool, a little windy, but just lovely and uncrowded! Seeing the hot air balloons slowly drift into view as they too timed their flights was a beautiful vision.
What a great stop in Sedona! We parked in the lot on top for $3. This was probably the easiest parking in Sedona!! We stopped for breathtaking photos at the lookout across from the lot.
We took the Sedona trail down to the Summit trail...More
I can not even begin to describe how incredible this hike was. I have a tremendous fear of heights, but knew I had to conquer them and I did. The views are breathtaking. Do not miss out on this hike. Best one we did.
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
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 Oak Creek Canyon and beyond that will remind you that this is a very special place on the planet. You will LOVE Sedona ~ and hopefully get a chance to go to the Grand Canyon, too ~ Have fun!!

If you are lucky enough to get a parking spot at the small lot near the Vortex, then it is 5-10 minutes maximum. However, that lot only holds 10-12 cars. At peak periods you are going to have to park farther up the mountain... More
If you are lucky enough to get a parking spot at the small lot near the Vortex, then it is 5-10 minutes maximum. However, that lot only holds 10-12 cars. At peak periods you are going to have to park farther up the mountain, at the Airport Overlook parking lot. From there add another 20 minutes in each direction. The walk back to the larger lot is uphill.
My wife and I went to the Vortex for a sunrise experience and photo shoot. It is a great time to go and as you might expect, much less crowded! The Airport Vortex is so popular and crowded it is hard to have a good experience there.
