Sedona Geology Hike with Jack Conklin and Duane De Paepe
November 8th, 2015 (1:00 pm)
Join Red Rock State Park’s knowledgeable volunteers as they venture out on their trails and discuss how Sedona transformed into what we see today. Red Rock State Park is located at the base of the Mogollon Rim, the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. Over millions of years of erosion the rim has receded over four miles leaving behind the picturesque features of Sedona. This is an interpretive experience for both the beginner and experienced hiker, lasting between 2-2 ½ hours and an elevation gain of 250 feet. Please bring water and wear suitable footwear. For more information please visit Red Rock State Park.

Archaeology Hike with Duane De Paepe
November 19th, 2015 (Arrive at 2:00 pm)
Red Rock State Park has been a destination for Native Americans for several millennium. Most of the ancient features found in the park are from the Sinagua culture dating about 1100 to 1425 AD. Now for the first time, filling a gap in the natural and cultural interpretation programs, an archaeology hike will add this experience for park visitors. Come and hear the festinating story of the pre-Columbian people who lived and traveled in the park! This initial hike is designed for park visitors and RRSP volunteers who may want to get involved in this new program. The hike will identify the various archaeological features and interpret them into the wider context of important regional Sinagua sites. And we will explore ideas of other cultures who may likely have made use of the park’s resources. The hike will last about one hour, with an elevation gain of some 250 feet, along easy trails. For more information please visit Red Rock State Park.
