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.

This road wasn't busy which was a good thing because as the driver, I kept on pulling over to the side of the road repeatedly to try and catch the perfect picture. Everytime I thought I had captured the best picture, another vista presented itself.

Put this State Park on your must visit list. Beauty beyond belief. This is Sedona's most photographed area. You can picnic, hike, explore and swim here. The Rangers on property are awesome and have a wealth of knowledge to share!

We were there 2.5 hours. We hiked their paths. The welcome centre didn't have much going on. There was to be a 2 pm show but they cancelled it.
