Red Rock State Park, Sedona

4.5
#2 of 21 in Wildlife in Sedona
Red Rock State Park is a 286 acre nature preserve and environmental education center with stunning scenery. Trails throughout the park wind through manzanita and juniper to reach the rich banks of Oak Creek. Green meadows are framed by native vegetation and hills of red rock. The creek meanders through the park, creating a diverse riparian habitat abounding with plants and wildlife. This riparian habitat provides the setting and the opportunity for the park to offer a focus on environmental education.

  • Being new to hiking and having a wide range of ages for our children, we decided to hike at Red Rock State Park. For five of us, it was $29 to get in, but worth it in our opinion. We were able to go t...  more »

  • Stopped at this State Park for a short hike. The visitor center was very well equipped and maintained. This contrasted with the rest of the park which was run down and poorly maintained. The bridges w...  more »

  • A very attractive small (280 ac.) park with riparian and red rock trails. Trails are well-built and well-marked and pack a lot of miles into a small area by wandering widely. Nice views of the Mogollon Rim to the north and the local buttes and mesas. Some recent history as well.
  • Red Rock State Park is the most beautiful place I've ever been to. There's countless trails to pick from. The park rangers are helpful. It's clean. I went in October and it wasn't hot. It's also close to restaurants and gas stations which is helpful.
  • The sheer energy of this place is massive! Feels like you're in a wild west scene. Definitely recommended. There are a number of paths you can do - My fiance and I (25 and 31) did the entire perimeter and it took us about 1.5 hours at a leisure pace. The park is very different up top where the desert area is to down below where it looks more like the woods of Ontario. We also saw lots of deer near the wooded entrance where the creek is ! Keep an eye out

It took us at least /more or less 3hrs of hike( it was longer coz i took pics and breaks). ...

  • Beautiful locale. Traveled hundreds of miles and I got to build a little rock structure so it was a win win for me. Wear comfortable shoes, dress warmly during November and be prepared to hike to get to the best views.
