After hiking the nearby trail, we stopped to see the airport--what a surprise to see all the private small planes, helicopters (tours begin here), and even a world-class restaurant, Mesa Grille, which we will visit for Sunday brunch sometime soon.
Great views overlooking the valley for sunset. We were lucky that the clouds cleared just in time for a beautiful sunset. If you drive to the top of the hill you do not have to hike at all. There is a $3 parking fee and you just walk across the street. It gets pretty busy with tourists so you may... 更多
Sunrise or Sunset is the time to visit the Mesa. Views are incredible as light and shadows dance around the landscape. It's just beautiful and definitely worth a visit.
My husband and I drove up here because we heard that the sunsets were spectacular from there. However, the evening that we were there, the sunset was ho hum. There is a restaurant there so we decided to have dinner while we were there.........not the best! The views are pretty though!!!
We experienced great views when we went to Airport Mesa. It's not always easy to get a parking spot in the area, so you have to go early or just keep trying. It's worth the trip.
It was raining the day we went so we didn't do the airport loop, but walked to the top to see the view. There is limited parking so you may have to wait a while, especially if people are hiking. I would say there is not more than 10 parking spaces and can't imagine how busy it would be if... 更多
This is one of the mountains where it is not too difficult to climb to the top for the spectacular view. They have some more difficult trails around if you want more of a challenge. There is also a great viewing airing that is not at the top if you are unable to get to the top.
The Airport Mesa is also a must see while in Sedona. Even better if you can fly in. The runway location is incredibly cool! The sunset views from here are also incredible. You can purchase helicopter rides there. We just parked and hiked around. Worth the stop!
The afternoon-evening view of the city of Sedona is quite spectacular from this viewpoint. Parking will cost you $3, and you stand at the rim of the Mesa with 100 or so others of all ages, everyone taking photos and selfies. It's a bit of a zoo, but worth the hassle at least once. There's a trailhead on the way... 更多
This was my least favorite hike of our Sedona trip. You basically walk in a circle around the airport. There are several parts that are narrow that can be a bit intimidating given the distance down. I was afraid we were going to run into a snake throughout. Its a very isolated trail - didn't see another person the whole... 更多
