Slide Rock State Park apple picking

Apple picking is a fun and family-friendly activity that is perfect for the fall season. I took my family to Slide Rock State Park in Sedona, Arizona, for a day of apple picking.

We arrived at the park early in the morning and paid the $20 entrance fee. Then, we headed to the apple orchard, which is located about 1,000 yards from the parking lot. The orchard has a variety of apple trees, including Fuji, Golden Delicious, and Red Delicious.

We started picking apples right away. The apples were crisp and juicy, and we quickly filled our bags.

Overall, we had a great time apple picking in Sedona. It was a perfect family outing, and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun activity.

Here are some additional tips for apple picking in Sedona:

  • Wear comfortable shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty.

  • Be respectful of the trees and don’t climb on them.
