Geology Hike at Red Rock State Park
Red Rock State Park
Sunday, February 12, 2023 1:00 p.m.
Red Rock State Park is located at the base of the Mogollon Rim, the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. The escarpment is over 200 miles long and ranges in height from 2,000 to 3,000 feet. Over millions of years of erosion the rim has receded over four miles leaving behind the picturesque features of Sedona.
Join our knowledgeable volunteers as they venture out on our trails and discuss how Sedona transformed into what we see today. This interpretive event is for both the beginner and experienced hiker. The program typically lasts two hours and is included with park entrance fees.
RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED! Reservations can be made for this hike starting January 1st by calling the park at 928-282-6907. Those with reservations:
