Archaeology hike at Red Rock State Park
Starting Oct. 20 Red Rock State Park in Sedona will offer archeology hikes every third Sunday through May from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
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. Come and hear the fascinating story of the pre-Columbian people who lived and traveled in the park.
After a short presentation in the theater, participants will go on a guided 1.5 to 2 hour hike along easy to moderate trails with an elevation gain of about 250 feet.
The hike 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.
Hike is included with park entrance fees, $7 for those ages 14 and older, $4 for ages 7-13 and is free for children 6 and under. No reservations required. If you have any questions, please call 928-282-6907.
