We followed the AllTrails App to keep along the trail because it was a bit difficult to find. Click here to find the route we followed!
We also did sunrise hikes at Devil's Bridge and Boynton Canyon, read about both of them here!
We eventually connected to the main portion of the trail on the eastern side of the mesa and continued our loop hike. As the sun rose, the views only improved. We could eventually see all of the familiar formations of Sedona like Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, Battlement Mesa, and Snoopy Rock!
Eventually, when the trail rounded the southern and western portion of the mesa, we started walking closer to the airport. This part of the trail was not our favorite, because we had gone from wide open spaces back to short desert trees, and the trail follows close to the airport fence surrounding houses, offices, and other airport buildings. It wasn’t very nice, but it was the last bit of the trail.
We eventually arrived back at the parking lot with our car. It was around 7:30 when we finished the hike.
The Airport Mesa Loop Trail was a great introductory hike for us to see all of the places we would be exploring over the next few days.
