Archaeology Hike at Red Rock State Park
April 16, 2017 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Red Rock State Park has been a destination for Native Americans for several millennia. Most of the ancient features found in the park are from the Sinagua culture dating about 1100 to 1425 AD. Come and hear the fascinating story of the pre-Columbian people who lived and traveled in the park! 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 that may likely have made use of the park’s resources. The hike will last about two hours, with an elevation gain of approximately 250 feet, along easy trails. Please bring water and wear suitable footwear. This hike is included with park entrance fees.
