Read MoreShow Less
Just outside the city of Sedona is the evocatively-named Slide Rock State Park that was once an apple farm.
Slide Rock State Park was originally the Pendley Homestead, an apple orchard started in 1912 that covered more than 40 acres. Pendley later built cabins as more vacationers began coming into the area, and the homestead was purchased by the Arizona Parklands Foundation in 1985. The original Pendley farmhouse is still in the park.
The name “slide rock” comes from one geologic feature of the park, a slippery area in a creek near the homestead. The red rock formations that are so famous in this part of Arizona are all over the park, which is a popular place for hiking, swimming, fishing, and picnicking.
The entry fee for Slide Rock State Park is $20 per vehicle Monday-Thursday, and $30 per vehicle Friday-Sunday and holiday weekends. That fee includes up to four adults. The park is open May 1 through Labor Day from 8am-7pm, Labor Day through October 31 from 8am-6pm, November-January 9am-5pm, and February-April 8am-6pm.
