Archaeology Hike at Red Rock State Park




The third Sunday of the month, from October to May, at 1 p.m., visitors to Red Rock State Park have the opportunity to experience a guided hike. The 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 to about 1100 to 1425 A.D. Come and hear the fascinating story of the pre-Columbian people who lived and traveled in the park. During the hike, the guide will identify the various archaeological features visible from park trails and interpret them into the wider context of important regional Sinagua sites. The guide will also touch on ideas of other cultures that likely have made use of the park’s resources. The hike will last about one-and-a-half to two hours, with an elevation gain of some 250 feet, along easy to moderate trails and may begin with a short presentation in the theater.

Cost: Hike is included with park entrance fees: $7 ages 14 and up, $4 ages 7-13, and free for ages 6 and under. Location: 4050 Red Rock Loop Rd., Sedona. For more information, call 928-282-6907. For information about other events and activities, visit AZStateParks.com.
