Driving Tour & Picnic at Red Rock State Park
July 16 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
No part of our state is more beautiful than the spectacular Red Rock country surrounding Sedona. This drive’s destination is Red Rock State Park, a 286 acre nature preserve and environmental education center with stunning scenery. The driving route will take the “back way” toward Sedona, avoiding the congestion that is inevitable on the main route.
We will enjoy a lunch buffet at the park. The menu includes BBQ beef brisket, roasted chicken, green salad, potato salad, cowboy beans, cornbread, and peach cobbler for dessert.
After lunch you will want to check out the park visitor center, where you can explore the exhibits and view films which present Sedona history and wildlife, and which will take you on a flying tour of the red rocks with some phenomenal aerial scenes.
You can explore the trails, spy for wildlife, or just enjoy the beautiful scenery. When you are ready to leave the park you can go into Sedona for shopping or other activities, then return on the Red Rock Scenic Byway to I-17. Or you can drive back on the less-heavily traveled but still interesting route through Cornville back to I-17.
The $50/person registration fee covers your park entry, facility rental, and lunch.
