Sedona Area Parks to Grand Canyon Road Trip
Located in Northern Arizona about 2 hours from Grand Canyon’s South Rim, Sedona is not actually a park, but an area that consists of several State Parks, National Forest land, and the city of Sedona. All of this public land contains the amazing red rock formations Sedona is known for and it's a few hours drive from Grand Canyon National Park making it a great one day or overnight road trip. The Sedona State Parks and the Red Rock Ranger District of Coconino National Forest were formed to protect this unique geological landscape. Even the city of Sedona has special regulations and restrictions to help keep the area as natural as possible. The towering buttes, mesas, and other formations are made of amazing red sandstone sculpted by time and weather over millions of years. Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon are not only rich in geologic history, but also human history and contain several archeological sites. Sedona is also known for its vortex sites which are energy points located at several of its red rock formations. If you're traveling to the Grand Canyon, including a visit to some Sedona area parks is a great addition to your trip. Read the guide below to learn more.
