This is the perfect cold weather hike! Imagine soaking in the warmth of the sun on a chilly day while savoring gorgeous, panoramic vistas everywhere you look as you trek along a three-and-a-half mile circular path around Airport Mesa and its famed positive energy flow vortex. Talk about an energy boost! Airport Loop is a wonderful introduction to Sedona’s red rock country because it provides great views of West Sedona and some of our most famous landmarks: Coffee Pot Rock, Chimney Rock, Capitol Butte (Thunder Mountain), Courthouse Butte, the Cockscombs, Wilson Mountain, Munds Mountain, Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock – and (whew!) Sedona’s very own “pyramid mountain.” Yes, you can certainly hike this in warmer months, but in the summer it can get very hot, indeed, with hardly a shady spot for cover. NOTE: If you’re with a group or a partner and one wants to do the hike and another just wants to meditate or soak in the vortex energy, this is an ideal choice.
Fay Canyon is a great trail for the whole family. Unlike many trails that require you to go “down, across and up” numerous arroyos (dry creeks), Fay Canyon is actually relatively flat. It is one of those trails that starts out good and keeps getter better that further you make your way back into this box canyon. The high red rock cliff walls coupled with the large oak and juniper trees make this a great trail year-round.
Fay Canyon is a favorite hike for many who prefer a shorter hike with minimal elevation gain or who enjoy the grandeur of red sandstone walls towering overhead. Some people visit Fay Canyon to see the natural arch located just under a half mile up the trail. Those who don’t know about it usually walk right past. Though the Fay Canyon Arch is by no means small, it looks so much like an ordinary rock overhang, it’s easy to glance right at it and not realize what you’ve seen. If you keep watching the rock wall to the north (right) side of the trail sooner or later you’ll spot it.
This small, hidden canyon supports a diverse community of desert plants and provides good views of the surrounding cliffs. It dead ends at a red Supai sandstone cliff. Throughout Fay Canyon you can marvel at the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you.

Mention Arizona and most people envision cacti, not Cabernet. Yet between heat-battled desert basins and soaring mountains, pockets of microclimates exist that echo some of the most famous wine regions of the world. Sedona occupies such an oasis. The Verde Valley’s abundant sunshine and dramatic nighttime cool-downs, combined with rich volcanic soil and a good water source create an ideal environment for hearty varietals.
Winemaking may seem like a trendy tourism wrinkle in Arizona, but it actually dates back to the late 17th century when Franciscan missionaries planted the first vineyards in the state. One of Sedona’s earliest settlers got the grape rolling in red rock country. Heinrich Schuerman arrived in Sedona in 1884 and planted an orchard and vineyard. A few years later he was selling apples, peaches and wine to the logging camps of Flagstaff and miners in Jerome.
Today, a handful of estate vineyards dot the hillsides just outside of town. Oak Creek inspires a lush greenbelt along the sloping flanks of House Mountain and it’s easy to forget that you’re anywhere near a desert.
One of the beauties of the Sedona wineries, is they’re all small production facilities. So what you experience are the passions of the winemakers. Every bottle has been doted over. Local wines can be found in stores and on the menus of restaurants throughout the area. Better yet, go Napa Valley style on these idyllic little places with your own personal wine tour. Visit the vineyards and try the tasting rooms. If you’re concerned about driving, several companies offer tours. You can travel by limo, jeep and even kayak.
Go back in time to the old west when you belly up to an authentic saloon style bar in Javelina Leap Vineyard & Winery’s tasting room. The largest wine tasting bar in northern Arizona. Because of its unique design you will have plenty to see and talk about while enjoying Javelina Leap Vineyard & Winery Arizona wines.
Our winemakers are often available to say hello and sign a bottle of wine for your special occasion. The Javelina Leap Vineyard & Winery Gift Shop offers unique items in every size and price range. From the work of our own local artists to wine related gifts and home decor. We carry items that you won’t find every where you go.
Join us at Javelina Leap Vineyard & Winery for an intimate, informative tour on the wine making and the grape growing process. Our staff is knowledgeable, accessible and fun. While sipping your wine you will see our barrel room and learn about wine barrels and winemaking. We will also learn about the special machinery we use at Javelina Leap and you may even catch the winemakers at work during the harvest season. We will learn about the history of the Arizona wine industry and Javelina Leap Vineyards. Private tours are $150.00 per group up to 12 people. Tours include one complementary house made chocolate truffle per guest, $2.00 discount on all flights and a complementary bottle of the groups choice from the family cellar to share at the end of the tour.

Marilyn and Lee Athenour received the keys for Cheers on Halloween night in 1986, and Cheers has been the silly, unique “fun store” ever since. From then on, Cheers has made its mark selling stylish t-shirts and sweatshirts in Uptown Sedona.

You’ll almost always find either second or third generation “Cheers family” members in the stores. Haley—the one on the far right of the photo above—spoke her first word in Cheers!
