Short and sweet hike without having to cross the creek. Red Rock Crossing, or Budha Beach as it is also called, is accessible from Crescent Moon Ranch. Very easy hike, with beautiful views of Cathedral Rock. Short and sweet hike without having to cross the creek.

Agree 100% with Paul Rossetti. The lady at the entrance made it seem like there’s a bridge to cross the creek and go up to the rocks. We found out later that the “bridge” was a series of slippery rocks under the water, so you’d have to take your shoes off and hope you don’t fall in. Nice views, but you don’t need to pay $10 to get the same thing.

great place, easy trial with kids. The small streams and woodlogs acting as bridges was very much fun along with some adventure for kids.

not much of a trail, plus you need to pay $10 to enter the park. pretty view of Cathedral Rock at sunset but you don't need to go on the trail to get those kinds of views

Great easy hike with the cold creek next to it! It was great to take off the shoes and wade around for awhile in the creek. It’s busy, but not over crowded. The views are stellar! It was a great recovery hike after Devil’s Bridge.

Super easy hike and swim! Met a lot of sweet college kids from flagstaff who mingled with us like we have known one another for life one! People and views are great definitely enjoyed our time stopping! Be careful for cray fish some run and some stay to snap you!

As listed below, linked directions lead you to private property where a lady may sternly scold you for being somewhere you shouldn’t be. The right spot leads you to a $10/car park. Nice place to spend an afternoon!

Beware the map instructions from the app it takes you to some dead end road. Great hike once we found the crescent moon rec area!

Perfect easy hike! Beautiful, scenic views, excellent swimming, a really fun afternoon!

Easy trail. Very scenic with swimming holes and shade as well as mountain views!
Make sure you don't end up on the other side of the river. This is located behind the Marriott Courtyard hotel. Turn right at the old stagecoach at the stop sign or you'll end up in a construction zone!

Beautiful location for an easy family hike and dip in the many swimming holes offered by the creek that runs down the trail. This location is very clean and well maintained. I took a day trip to Sedona with the hubby and our two little ones ages 3 and 5. We were all super comfortable on the trails and all enjoyed taking dips in the creek. The kids got to try mulberries off the trees during our hike and enjoyed stacking rocks. Will definitely go back!

Directions in app are not correct. Tried to Google and came up with completely different directions. Wasn't really sure what to do....just make sure you know where you are heading.

Nice easy scenic family trail. Water and rocks kept the kids occupied.

Easy walk, but worth it if you're looking for a cool way to spend a couple hours. The river was fast as we've had rain lately. The red rock cliffs are so pretty.

Great hike. Loved that the trail was shaded a lot of the way by the creek. Easy hike. Some great picture opportunities.

This is in Crescent Moon Ranch and such a beautiful place. I did my maternity photoshoot here. Stunning views. Very crowded during the summer, but fairly empty during cooler months. $10 to park. The views are a must see.

Nice creek! My dog loved swimming in it. $10 entrance but very worth it on a hot day! Use Google maps to get directions to Red Rock Creek (when I used the "directions" feature on the App, it took me to the wrong place.) The address is Red Rock Crossing Rd, Sedona, AZ 86017
