A great place for people of all ages. The park is very beautiful and well maintained. There are lots of things to do. Be sure to hike to the top of the mountain for some great views!

This is a great spot to spend the day hiking. We went up the rock, and walked about 4 miles on the trails. Next time we will bring a picnic.

The family planned this as just a stop on our vacation. Once we got there and realized just how great this place is we stayed longer but still had to leave sooner than we liked. The kids ran to the top, I walked, but it was a nice hike. It's hard to describe how beautiful the view is from the... More

Highly recommend going to Enchanted Rock if you are in the area. Great rock climbing and views of the Texas hill country. It's an amazing experience.

Enchanted Rock is such a natural beauty! We didn't go prepared to hike to the top, but we did manage to get about half way with our 4 year old! So peaceful! Loved the area and the drive!

While visiting Fredericksburg, my husband & I hiked to the top of the Enchanted Rock. It's a steep climb - so take your time and go early in the morning during the summer or early fall due to the heat. We are in our early 60's and thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful place. So pleased that we took the time to... More

You must visit Enchanted Rock and hike to the top! It is one of the most beautiful and fun State Parks to visit in Texas. Hike up to the top and take in the breathtaking views. I'd recommend going in the morning or evening during the summer. It gets hot on the rock! Have fun!

Beautiful spot in the hill country. Lots of nice trails, very family and dog friendly. We went to Fredericksburg for Oktoberfest and then on to Enchanted Rock.

Passing by the Enchanting Rock State Natural area enroute to Fredericksburg, we made a decision to stop & check it out. Great decision! We were able to scale the rock in about 45 minutes and the 360 degree views are marvelous. We were lucky enough to enjoy cooling breezes the entire trip up and down which helped us survive the...
