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 about 1100 to 1425 AD.  Now for the first time, filling a gap in the natural and cultural interpretation programs, an archaeology hike will add this experience for park visitors.  Come and hear the fascinating story of the pre-Columbian people who lived and traveled in the park. The hike will identify the various archaeological 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 park’s resources. The hike will last about two hours, with an elevation gain of about 250 feet, along easy to moderate trails.
