About
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. Red Rock offers a variety of special programs for school groups and private groups. There are a number of daily and weekly park events. The park offers a visitors center, classroom, theater, park store, ramada and hiking trails.

    Comfortable, Scenic Afternoon
    We had over hiked a couple days while in the Sedona area. We were told that Red Rock State Park had some very good, scenic, relatively easy hikes, so we decided to try it. It made for a good, relaxing day, without a lot of muscle strain. The trails were easy to follow, the scenery was very good, and we just outright enjoyed it.

    Wonderful surprise....
    We heard about Sedona during our road trip ant we added it. What a wonderful place to go...the scenic road , the color of the mountains, the city of Sedona. A place we hoped to return with the rest of the family. A must if you have the chance to go...

    Great option in Sedona
    With only a day to spend in Sedona, we were confused over all the hiking options. We decided to start at Red Rock State Park. Great decision! There were numerous, well-marked hiking trails, many with spectacular views. We also happened upon a guided nature walk which was instructive. Plus there was a visitors center with lots of information. And it was not crowded. Worth the $7 per person entrance fee.

    Easy hike pays off with magnificent views
    Great hiking area for any fitness level. There are several interlocking trails that very in length. We hike the outer loop of all the trails which was about 5.5-miles. We hiked Bunkhouse to Kiva to Eagles Nest to Coyote Ridge to Apache Fire to Javalina to East Gate and back to Bunkhouse. As you can imagine the trail segments are short and you can access the trails for shorter hikes. The only strenuous part of the loop was going up the back side of Eagles Nest but there are plenty of switchbacks with 300-ft of elevation gain. Great vistas of Cathedral Rock, Three Sisters, and many more rock formations. We saw several mule deer on the hike, stopped and ate lunch enjoying the views of the mountain range, and met only a handful of other hikers on the trail. Gates open at 0800.

    The Rangers are so kind!
    Me and my friend walked three short trails and saw so much beauty from the rock formations to the river we walked along. The rangers helped identify a lizard I took a photo of and thought me how to recognize it. I appreciated that fully🫶🏼 we also loved all the information that was posted on the trails!

    Amazing views and relaxing walks
    All state parks have wonderful views and offer good trials to enjoy with family and your dog if you have one. I did not pay extra fir any of the visits I did to the park. My only watchout is that it gets busy early so it help to stsrt early.

    Hiking at Red Rock State Park
    We arrived at 10 AM. We listeded to the 2 movies about the history. Then we walked the train next to the Oak Creek, the easy trail. We had hiked the harder trails years ago. We toured the 2 rooms with explanations of the area. We ended with a picnic lunch on the outdoor picnic tables.

    Good start to the Loop Road
    We had a nice visit and tour with guide Charlotte today. Learned lots about the native plants and the park geological history. The views are terrific, especially if you do the short climb to the House of Apache Fires.

    Mule Deers
    Our Nature guide was exceptional. Jan/Jane was so knowledgeable and willing to share all her knowledge (geology, volancic activity, reasont history, botanical plants, and indigeneous history) and gladly answered all the group's questions. The walk/hike was about 2 hrs; bring plenty of water....highly recommend it..We saw two mule deers!

No mater whether it is sunny or with snow there is no better place than the beauty of the Red Rock country around Sedona. Bell, Rock, Cathedral rock, Boynton Canyon, Schnebly Hill, Oak Creek , it has it all.

Honestly it’s nothing amazing if you have done some other hikes. If you are limited on time I would NOT go here. If you have done hikes like Broken Arrow this is really bland and uneventful. There are much better places to visit and see.

If you can find it, GPS takes you to a dirt road that ends with a sign "GPS is wrong-private road". Had to get directions and get a paper map. The park does not honor a "red rocks" pass so you have to pay $7 per person. The trails can be confusing as the names change. The scenery is OK but nothing to go back to.
