One of the major attractions of Black Star Canyon is a striking geological formation known as the Red Rocks. The two-toned Red Rocks highlight the ever-changing landscape and the rich history that has carved its way through the canyon. These sedimentary rocks were formed approximately 20-40 millions years ago during the Cenozoic Era, when the climate was changing from humid to dry.
To visit Black Star Canyon Wilderness Park and see the Red Rocks for yourself, sign up for one of the guided programs offered or participate in an upcoming Wilderness Access Day!
