Red Rock State Park


Everybody and their mother goes to Slide Rock Park when they do Sedona. Forget that and go to the local hangout – Red Rock Park. The area isn’t quite as scenic but its plenty accessible.

I haven’t explored all the paths but there is a great wooden bridge over the creek and the trail I did follow has some really nice views. The trail goes to dirt after the bridge and we still pushed 1/4 mile up into the valley. With some better tires I could have gone even further.

Its worth driving up to Slide Rock Park and you can poke around a little at the park itself but Red Rock offers far more independent travel.

Note: Unless you are pressed for time, the only way to really get to Sedona is to go to Prescott and take State Route 89A up thru Jerome. That’s a great ride!

What Acessing Arizona Is All About

Accessing Arizona is primarily designed for people who are looking for wheelchair accessible events, locations and activities. If you have paralysis (paraplegic or quadriplegic), Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Bifida, or if you are an amputee, Accessing Arizona has information about an active lifestyle.
If you are traveling to Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, Sedona or the Grand Canyon, the site offers insight about the accessibility. We cover trails, lakes, state parks, national parks and just about anything claiming to be handicapped accessible. The site also covers sports and recreation in Arizona.
From racing to rugby, from basketball to sled hockey, we cover all the local sports teams. Note: All photographs and essays are copyright Accessing Arizona, unless noted otherwise.
