Airport Mesa Reviews
This was an easy trail to locate with decent street parking. The terrain was moderate- It was not difficult, but there were a few places where the trail was narrow, and you could slip if not careful..... more »
I love hiking up here at night to be fully surrounded by the dark night & bright stars.. The easiest hike for an ammazzing view! Parking is very difficult, expect to circle for some time.. more »
A spectacular view, good hiking, and exposure to the coveted vortex energy. The energy was strong. I felt super charged upon arrival back to the parking lot. The feeling lasted the remainder of the day. We also encountered two wild lizards, who moved fast with the energy of the spot. The prickly pear cactuses were abundant and thrived in the heat of the desert sun. Bring water.
If you like sunsets like we do, then plan on getting here early to get a good place, and enjoy, what may be one of the most spectacular place to view a sunset. We have visited here a few times and it always seems better each time.
