Cresent Moon Picnic Area

The Cresent Moon Picnic Area is located just east of Red Rock State Park on Oak Creek. Which puts it just outside of Sedona.

The location has a great view of Cathedral Rock. The picnic tables and bathrooms are accessible, and there are small accessible paths winding around that area. If you can transfer out of your chair, there is a small bridge which you can sit on and put your feet in the water of a small creek (not Oak Creek itself). At the far eastern end there is a field, with amazing views. There is a trail that goes along the river leaving from the far end of the field which we were able to traverse with the all-terrain wheelchair. One path goes out to a rock ledge which is sometimes covered with water. Beyond that trails lead upstream, but none are accessible. For the able-bodied, there are beautiful rock stacks that people put together with the volcanic rock just beyond the rock ledge. We have combined a day here with trips to Sedona, Cottonwood/Jerome, and Prescott.

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.
