Rocky trail and not super rewarding, as anyone can just park on either side of it. But the views are truly spectacular. I preferred the view from the top of the rock near the lower end parking and vortex.

There was no parking so I listened to a reviewer and parked up at the airport overlook and paid the $3. It’s a .6 mile trip to the bottom which means you have to walk it back up. The trail is completely rocky. I really recommend hiking boots or shoes. The views are spectacular, but the trail was difficult to walk on as it’s about 97% rocks. We saw 1-2 birds and nothing else. My favorite trail so far in Sedona is the West Fork trail as you cross the river several times and you are surrounded by beautiful trees!

Did part of the trail. Easy-moderate roadside trail to vortex. Hiked it about an hour before the sunset and enjoyed the scenic walk back up.

Stunning views every step of the way - easy climbs for the best views to the top of the Mesa. Would highly recommend for even beginners. Enough of an elevation gain to get your heart pumping but minimal enough to slow down and enjoy. Perfect.

We parked near the airport since the Vortx parking lot was full but since the Vortx was our destination we ended up first hiking about .6 miles downhill on some moderately rocky terrain which was a piece of cake for some of us and a real challenge for others! Very pretty geology, beautiful weather, the Vortx was really neat too. Expect lots of steep steps and maneuvering around boulders as well as a section with handy handrails! Great energy and amazing views from the endpoint.
