Red Rock State Park Tours

30 Reviews
With views of ruddy cliffs everywhere you look, Red Rock State Park is a sight to behold. Trails slice through this 286-acre (116-hectare) nature preserve, winding through manzanita juniper shrubs toward the banks of Oak Creek. The visitor center offers numerous daily activities for guests, including nature walks and naturalist activities.

The Basics
The famous red rock scenery of Sedona is at its best within the bounds of this popular state park—a perfect place to enjoy Arizona's scenic natural beauty. While Sedona is a popular getaway in its own right, many travelers choose to visit Red Rock State Park on a day trip from Phoenix. A typical Jeep tour through the area will include the park, as well as Chapel of the Holy Cross and Bell Rock. Some itineraries also take visitors to Montezuma Castle or Tuzigoot national monuments.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Red Rock State Park is a must-see for outdoor enthusiasts and adventure travelers.
  • Don’t forget to bring sun protection; the high desert sun can be intense, even in winter.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
  • Handicap accessible restrooms can be found at the Visitor Center and Twin Cypress group use area.

How to Get There
The Red Rock State Park is located on the western end of Sedona and is about one hour south of Flagstaff. The easiest way to visit is to join a guided tour from Sedona or Phoenix or drive yourself.

When to Get There
The park is open daily throughout the year, with extended hours during the summer months (mid May to late August). The best time to visit is in spring (March to May) when temperatures are warm but not baking and desert wildflowers are in bloom.

Trails of Red Rock State Park
This state park’s trail system comprises 10 developed trails covering some five miles (eight kilometers). The Eagle’s Nest Loop takes visitors to the highest point in the park, while the Javelina Trail passes through serene piñon and juniper woodlands. Those looking for a longer hike can tackle the Lime Kiln Trail, a 15-mile (24-kilometer) shared-use trail connecting Red Rock State Park to nearby Dead Horse Ranch State Park.
