The Moonlight Hike is among the most popular interpretive hikes at Red Rock State Park. Led by a naturalist, it gives hikers the rare opportunity to enjoy the sunset and moonrise from an overlook and return by the light of the moon, while also having the chance to learn about Sedona and its surrounding areas. Verde Valley and park history, as well as archaeology, geology, botany, and riparian wildlife information, is also offered by a knowledgeable guide. 

The hike lasts 2 to 2 1/2 hours and covers a distance of approximately two miles. A $5.00 program fee is required as well as an entry fee upon arrival [$7.00 per adult (14 and up) $4.00 per youth (7 - 13)] Rangers ask hikers to please arrive approximately 30 minutes before the starting time to insure participation.
