The Moonlight Hike is among the most popular interpretive hikes at Sedona’s Red Rock State Park. This year it will take place on Thursday, April 18 from 5:15 to 7:45 p.m.
Led by a naturalist, the Full Moon Hike 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 the surrounding areas. Verde Valley and park history, as well as archaeology, geology, botany, and riparian wildlife information, are also possible topics offered by the knowledgeable guide. The hike lasts 2 to 2 1/2 hours and covers a distance of approximately two miles.
A $5 registration fee is required to reserve your spot on the hike, as well as an entry fee upon arrival ($4 per youth ages 7-13 and $7 per adult ages 14 and up). Rangers ask hikers to please arrive approximately 30 minutes before the starting time to ensure participation. Wear suitable clothing for a cool night and closed-toe shoes. Bring water and a flashlight. Call 928-282-6907 to reserve your spot.
