Majestically overlooking the land and Oak Creek, Cathedral Rock is revered by Native Americans as a home of gods and birthplace of the first man and woman. Rising toward the sky from a red sandstone base, the spires of Cathedral Rock inspire wonder and awe. Cathedral Rock is a natural landmark on the Sedona, Arizona skyline, and is one of the most-photographed sights in Arizona. The summit elevation of Cathedral Rock is 4,967 feet. Oak Creek, where it runs next to Cathedral Rock, is called Red Rock Crossing and considered a strong vortex as well as a sacred area in Native American history.
