Description

Arizona's famous Oak Creek meanders through scenic Red Rock State Park, creating a diverse riparian habitat abounding with plants and wildlife. This riparian habitat, the land-based ecosystem closely associated with Oak Creek, provides the setting and the opportunity for Red Rock State Park to offer a center for environmental education.

Guests can learn about the native plants and animals of the area through the park's guide books. Subjects include birds, plants, shrubs, trees and reptiles. The complete collection can be viewed with prior arrangements.

The family-oriented trail system is well marked. The 5-mile network consists of interconnecting loops, which lead you to vistas of red rock or along the lush greenery of Oak Creek. The Eagle's Nest Loop and the Apache Fire Loop are joined together by the Coyote Ridge Trail. Eagle's Nest is the highest point in the park with an elevation gain of 300'. These three major loops are connected along the riparian corridor by the Kisva Trail, which also leads up to the short loop of the Yavapai Ridge Trail. The Javelina Trail takes you into the pinyon/juniper woodlands and back to the other loops. Rattlesnake Ridge rises just above the Twin Cypress Picnic area. Stop by the visitor center desk for detailed information before starting out on the trails. Bikes and horses are only allowed on designated routes.

Two self-guided trails with numbered points along the route explain environmental aspects of the area. The Smoke Trail guide takes you along Oak Creek for 1/2 mile. The Ethno-botany guide explains the traditional uses of plants found along the Kisva Trail. Pick up the guides at the visitor center desk for a returnable deposit.

Facilities at Red Rock State Park include several picnic areas with ramada, water, electric, tables, and grills.
