About 45 minutes up and 35 minutes down if you take your time to enjoy the scenery. After the initial trail, zig-zag up the rock to conserve energy. The view at the top is worth the $7 per person fee. I am afraid of heights, but this seemed to be an easy climb with no fear of falling off an... More

What a great way to spend the day. The view from the top of the rock is wonderful and not a difficult climb at all. Just bring water. Also, don't miss the cave. There are hiking trails that lead you all around the rocks and through creeks, by ponds, and through the woods while still in view of the rock.... More

This is a great place to visit, hike and enjoy the scenery. It's close to Fredericksburg and a wonderful place to escape for a few hours or longer.

Very pretty, worth the small hike to the top! We didn't camp, just spent an afternoon while in Fredericksburg for the week-end.

What a view! I had been before in college and didn't recall how strenuous the climb was. We made it up and down in a little over an hour. The scenery is beautiful. Highly recommend if you're in the area!

Went to Enchanted Rock to check it out for a possible Cub Scout camping trip. This campground will work out great! Nice place to get a large group together and have a weekend of fun. I was tired as I headed up the rock, but when I arrived at the summit, I had my second wind. I roamed all over... More

This was my ...th visit to the Enchanted Rock. But it was the first one, in which, coming by myself, I didn't need to 'show' the place, and instead felt free to explore it from different angles. So I started with climbing the 'Little Rock' which is south-west of the main 'Enchanted Rock', and only 125 feet lower. The views... More

I love this park & have been many times, but it is especially beautiful this spring 2015. There are streams & pools all over the rock and around it. The wildflowers are outstanding and I've never seen so many buds on the prickly pear. They're starting to bloom - I may have to go back a 3rd time in a... More

We stopped to check this area out on our way to Fredericksburg and were not disappointed. There are several hiking trails which we will return to take advantage of. The picnic area is nice. Lots of really friendly squirrels wanting a handout. :) The personnel at the Visitor's Ctr were very helpful. Bathrooms are well taken care of.
