“best, easiest-to-get-to sunset spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Totally easy to get there - parking lot (short distance up the mesa on Airport Road) has room for 10-15 cars so get there in plenty of time for sunset.

Short scramble to the top of the knoll in the saddle, with a 360 degree view of Sedona and surrounding scenery. Talk about Happy Hour!

Of course there are a zillion great views in Sedona, but this is one of the best. Expect company.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

From the scenic overlook, you can see all of West Sedona:  Capitol Butte (Thunder Mtn), Coffeepot, Chimney...the Mesa Grill is open with lots of glass so you can get a drink and watch the sun set.

“No parking except at top”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Looked like a great spot but we got there about 4:30 and the trailhead halfway up the hill was packed. So we parked at the top but couldn't really locate the trail back down. Very crowded at the top and we ended up leaving before complete sunset to avoid the nose-to-tail traffic back down the hill.
