Red rock crossing

How do we get there? We are staying at Adobe Village Graham Inn in Village of Oak Creek? Also can we walk to Bell Rock or the Little Horse trail from our hotel? Thirdly can we walk to Chapel of Holy Cross or do we drive and is it easy to park? Thanks

Well since you are staying in VOC Verde Valley School Rd will take you there. The road is paved part of the way and then it is a dirt road, good condition. You have to park your car and walk the rest of the way, maybe a half mile. The last time we took this road, once you reached the creek you had to climb down a hill to the creek. I though I remember hearing they improved this a bit but RedRox can verify that.

While a longer way from where you are staying, we prefer to take 89A in West Sedona to Upper Red Rock Loop Rd. This is right at the High School. The reason for this is you get awesome views, with a couple pull overs for pics on the way down before you get to Red Rock Crossing. This is the way to the actual park entrance.

Accurate info from Thelrose. Biggest difference is that if you use VVSR from VoC you avoid paying the park entrance fee, but technically you can't cross the creek to the paved paths and park amenities. It's just a mild scramble from the end of the road down to the creek, but it's all Red Rock Crossing. Views and creek access are the same. Better distant views of Cathedral Rock though from Red Rock Loop Road in West Sedona.

From AVGI you can indeed walk to Bell Rock Pathway and beyond. It's another 3 miles up Bell Rock Path to the Little Horse fork and trailhead and Chapel of the Holy Cross is further from there, so you might want to drive to that site.

When you say entrance fee does that mean the red rock pass?

Red Rock Crossing aka Crescent Moon Park is a state park and requires a separate fee. RRPass does not apply.

However if you access RRC via Verde Valley School Rd, you will park in a lot that does require the RRP. But that won't have you in the state park
