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 moon rise 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. Special guest, Astronomers of Verde Valley, will have their high-powered telescopes set up for a special moon viewing following the hike. A $5.00 non-refundable 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. Program fees are non-refundable unless the park must cancel the hike after your arrival. Wear suitable clothing, shoes (prepare for cool nights), bring water, and a flashlight. Hike starts at 5:45 pm. Registration begins March 30th and closes April 28th.
