Archaeology Hike

Red Rock State Park

3rd Sunday of the month (Oct.-May)   1:00 p.m.

Red Rock State Park has been a destination for Native Americans for several millennia. Most of the ancient features found in the park are from the Sinagua culture dating back about 1100 to 1425 AD. Come and hear the fascinating story of the pre-Columbian people who lived and traveled in the park. The hike will identify the various archeological features and interpret them into the wider context of important regional Sinagua sites. You will explore ideas of other cultures that may likely have made use of the parks resources. This interpretive experience is for both the beginner and the experienced hiker, lasting between 2-2.5 hours with an elevation gain of 250 feet. Please bring water, suitable footwear and meet in the Visitor Center a little before 1:00 P.M. Hike is included with park entrance fees.

These hikes will be held on 10/15/17, 11/19/17, 12/17/17, 1/21/18, 2/18,18, 3/18/18, 4/15/18 and 5/20/18.
