The airport mesa is very close to downtown Sedona and is accessed from airport road. There is limited parking. It is relatively easy to hike up the trail cut into the rock. There was also guide cable to hold onto. The view was incredible looking out over the rock formations and the valley.

If you are able, start this hike at the lower parking area. That gets full quickly but it it the best. We started on the parking lot side with the great views. This side is more open and exposed to the sun. Some places were steep and could be narrow. After winding our way to the top, the path is... More

If you're going to watch the sunset, I recommend driving up 2 hours early to eat at The Mesa Grill. If you drive up just prior to sunset, you will have glaring sun in your eyes as you are driving up a steep, 2 lane road. I don't like the way that sounds. There is ample parking, and it is... More

We enjoyed this trail, found it moderate intensity place where a walking stick or support would have been useful. Take water snacks and a hat . Well maintained trail. Some breathtaking scenes. You have to see it to believe it. Took us 2 hrs 20 mins to finish and we went counterclockwise . Highly recommend given the ease of access... More

After hiking the Airport Loop, I was very confused by the TripAdvisor reviewers calling it a "large parking lot next to Sedona airport with breathtaking views". To further the confusion, some reviews here describe Mesa Grill, which is a restaurant in Sedona airport! Just to be clear, the reviews under the topic "Airport Mesa" encompass 3 different attractions. Located close... More

The road to the airport is pretty awesome. Stop and check out the mesa, beautiful at sunset. But a pretty great mini hike to get a nice look around.

This is a great little lookout point to start your stay in Sedona-- and parking is ample. Good place, especially, to snap photos at sunset!

We hike to the summit at the saddle location. It was a great place to soak in the views in all directions.

Beautiful hike- moderate difficulty- beautiful views everywhere! We had a little difficulty finding the start, but once we figured it out, it was a very enjoyable hike.
