TIP 1: If you're stopping for 15 minutes or less, for a quick perusal of the views, and maybe some photos, you don't need the pass.
TIP 2: Careful. There is a regular "patrol" that fines vehicles that are parked without a pass for longer than 15 minutes.
TIP 3: If you visit 2 or more national parks in a year, you might consider purchasing an "American The Beautiful Pass," currently about $80. You can buy it online, by clicking here, or, by phone at 888-275-8747
TIP 4: There are many other ways to get the pass once you're here. Lots of Sedona lodging venues sell them at cost as a convenience to their guests.

Where The Money Goes
Your Red Rock Pass fees have a significant and very positive effect on Sedona AZ land and Coconino National Forest areas.
95% of the money you spend is kept locally and used for conservation work, recreational area enhancements, and maintenance of these "high impact" areas. It also supports environmental protection and the continuous improvements of visitor information.
As a Sedona local, I'd like to personally offer you some GRATITUDE. I love living in this natural wonderland. And your pass money is a big reason we can all keep on enjoying the beauty that is so well preserved here in Sedona Arizona. Cheers. You rock!
