Red Rock Pass Program Q&A

Discover when you need a Red Rock Pass while visiting Sedona.

The Red Rock Pass program is a conservation tool designed by the U.S. Forest Service to protect, enhance and maintain Sedona’s awe-inspiring red rock landscape for future generations of the American public to enjoy.

Enhanced recreation amenities include: urban and backcountry hiking; day use picnic areas, restroom facilities; informational and interpretive signing; maintained roads for vistas and photo opportunities; and secure places for individual solitude and family recreation.


When is a Red Rock Pass Required?

A Red Rock Pass (or America the Beautiful Interagency Pass, Golden Age or Golden Access) is required when recreating on National Forest land in Red Rock Country. The pass must be displayed in the windshield of the vehicle.
Vehicles parked on the National Forest in the red rock area that do not display a valid pass in the windshield are subject to receiving a citation.
A pass is not required for incidental stopping to take a photograph or to enjoy a scenic vista (approximately 15 minutes or less).


The Red Rock Passes are sold in three options:

  • Daily for $5.00
  • Weekly for $15.00
  • Annually for $20.00
