Drive west from Sedona on US 89A. Just outside town, turn south on FR 216 (Upper Red Rock Loop Road). Drive about 1.5 miles and follow the signs to Red Rock Crossing. All roads except the short segment leading from Red Rock Crossing Road to the picnic area are paved.

Beautiful picnic park, great river spots. America the Beautiful passes do not work here. Also crossing the creek is not possible due to private property and water levels, All Trails shouldn’t have trails marked across the river

Nice and easy trail that my dogs enjoyed as well. Beautiful landscape and sounds from the creek. I took and veered off trail quite a bit to take other views in.

The directions on alltrails took us to a parking lot up the road from the trailhead. Upon walking down the road toward the tail on our gps, we quickly saw a no trespassing sign. We never made it to the actual trail, but did walk the river. Cold air was radiating around the trail. Gorgeous hike for a hot afternoon, but VERY confusing trail access and zero markers.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful hike. River levels permitting, I recommend you start at Crescent Moon Picnic Site, hike east as marked by AllTrails, cross and Buddha Beach Red Rock Crossing Vortex and hike back west on the south side of Oak Creek via the Baldwin Trail for the best views of Cathedral Rock, then cross again at the Crescent Moon Picnic Site to return to the parking lot.

Beautiful views of Cathedral Rock along Oak Creek. Easy trail along the river. No bridge to cross over to connect to Cat Rock Trail. Plan on getting wet if your continuing.
