I first saw Slide Rock State Park from the road while driving on Oak Creek Canyon Scenic Drive.
This gorgeous, winding road is about 15 miles long and runs between Sedona and Flagstaff (about 7 miles north of Sedona). Even a slight glance then showed this state park was a very popular spot with lots of people lining the red rock banks. I made it a point then that I wanted to visit it while I was in Sedona.
I later saw it listed as one of the top 10 Things to See and Do in Sedona: “Oak Creek’s slippery bottom offers a gentle gradient into the red sandstone pool at the bottom. The scenery is so spectacular, many movies have been shot there. Fodor’s Travel Guide calls Slide Rock a “historical little gem” and the eighth best State Park in the Union out of 8,000. On hot summer days, the lineups can be fearsome so don’t even think about trying the midday rush hour.”
