Red Rock State Park Photo
Hiking at Red Rock State Park offers magnificent views of the Sedona area.

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. (see below or ask at Visitor Center)

Park facilities include a visitors center, classroom, theater, gift shop, picnic tables, 10 developed trails, restrooms, and group area with Ramada and facilities. The restrooms are handicapped accessible. Camping facilities are not available at this park. The property was acquired by the Arizona State Parks Board in 1986 and the park was opened to the public in 1991. The land was at one time part of the Smoke Trail Ranch, owned by Jack and Helen Frye.

Self-Guided Hikes

IThe family-oriented trail system is well marked for your safety and pleasure. Five miles of trails consist of interconnecting loops, leading you to red rock vistas or along the lush greenery of Oak Creek. The Eagle's Nest and Apache Fire Loops are joined together by the Coyote Ridge Trail. Eagle's Nest is the highest point in the park with an elevation gain of 300 feet. The three major loops are connected along the riparian corridor by the Kisva Trail, which also leads to the short loop of the Yavapai Ridge Trail. The Javelina Trail takes you into the pinon/juniper woodlands and back to the other loops. Detailed information is available at the Visitor Center. Bikes and horses are allowed on designated routes.
