Williams to Flagstaff to Sedona Hiking

2 weeks from now I'll be driving down from Williams through Flagstaff, then down to Sedona via 89A. Any "must sees" on this trip down? Next morning, Coffepot trail, b'fast, Red Rock Crossing Trail (in addition to the red rock parking pass, do I need to pay an additional $10?). Then get some lunch to-go, then over to Airport Mesa Vortex. Later on, Boynton Canyon (for about 3 hrs), then Dry Creek Vista Parking Lot to watch the sunset and stars. Next day, Chapel of the Holy Cross, Bell Rock, Village of Oak Creek & last nite dinner. Would you recommend I get the $15 week Red Rock pass, or just pay $5 daily pass for the 2 days I'll be parking/hiking? Also, is this itinerary too much for the 3 days I'll be in Sedona (I'm a novice, light hiker 55 yrs old)? Thanks for any help!

Thank you ALL for all the info & suggestions! Based on everyone's input, I'm adjusting my itinerary. Please let me know if this sounds workable:

Day 1 - down from Flagstaff via 89A, eta Sedona 11am, lunch to go from Tortas de Fuego, then picnic at Crescent Moon park before Red Rock Crossing hike/walk.

Day 2 - 6am Coffee Pot b'fast, then to Westfork trail. Lunch on the way back at Cowboy Club. Boynton Canyon hike/vortex. Still working on dinner after Dry Creek Vista parking lot for sunset/stars (Barking Frog site says they're turning into Quality Kitchen & Bar on 9.21).

Day 3 - 6am b'fast to go from Café Jose ($5.99 huevos rancheros before 10am!), then picnic at Airport Mesa. Bell Rock hike, Chapel of the Holy Cross and Tlaquepaque mall. Patio dinner 5:30 at Mariposa!

Thanks for all your help; you're making my great trip even greater!
