"Amazingly Beautiful!"

The Red Rock State Park in Sedona Arizona is a beautiful park. The Red Rock is unbelievable when you see it, it takes your breath away. The hiking and trails around and in the red rocks are worth the drive to the park. Sometimes it gets a lot of traffic and you have to wait to get into the park but definately worth the view!

"Like nothing I've ever seen"

This place is absolutely stunning.  Our family was awed by the natural beauty and splendor of the place.  We made the drive while on a trip to Phoenix, and I am so glad we did.  The hiking is a little rough, so I would skip it with little children.  Bring your binoculars and your camera, you won't regret it!

"Beautiful vistas"

This is great if your kids are into beautiful views of the red rocks in the background. However, if you're like me, I wanted to be get the up close and personal experience of red rock. Not the 15 miles away experience.
The hikes are scenic which is nice although a bit tough for a toddler. Our little guy's got sturdy legs, but since the path was pretty rocky and uneven, he bit it more than a few times. After about the 3 fall, he decided that he preferred to be held. Be sure to pack water because it's dry and hot and we were there in December!
The best photo opp is on the platform above the visitor's center with Cathedral Rock in the background.
