Moonlight Hike at Red RockAug. 20The Moonlight Hike at Red Rock State Park is always a popular interpretive experience. Led by a naturalist, it gives hikers a rare opportunity to enjoy the sunset and moonrise from an overlook and return by the light of the moon, while also learning about Sedona and its surrounding areas, Park history, archeology, geology, botany, and riparian wildlife information, all offered by a knowledgeable guide. The hike lasts two to two and half hours and covers a distance of approximately two miles. Rangers ask hikers to arrive approximately 30 minutes before starting time to insure participation because no late arrivals can be allowed and reservations are required. When you call (928) 282-6907, the arrival time will be given because they are adjusted monthly according to the time of the moonrise.Wear suitable clothing and shoes, preparing for cool nights, and bring water, a flashlight and insect spray. A $5 per person fee is charged at the time of the reservation. There is also a $10 entrance fee to the Park for a car of four adults. Program fees are non-refundable unless the Park must cancel the hike after your arrival.Red Rock State Park is at 4050 Lower Red Rock Loop Road, Sedona.
