Where Is The Sedona Airport Vortex?
Easily accessible from town, the Airport Mesa Vortex is one of the most popular vortex sites in Sedona. To get there, travel west from the fork via Highway 89A for 1.1 miles. Turn left on Airport Mesa Road and drive for half a mile. Find the parking lot and trailhead on the left, and follow the trail leading to the “Overlook.” Get to the trailhead early to avoid the crowds.

What Trails Can I Take At Airport Mesa?
There are two trails: the Airport Mesa Overlook Trail and the Airport Loop Trail. The Overlook Trail is a short path that leads to the top of a mini-mesa that is home to one of Sedona’s infamous vortex sites. It connects with the Airport Loop Trail, a much longer trail that encircles the entire upper slope of Airport Mesa. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes or boots for the climb.
