$7 each to get in this park - to walk up the very large rock -- not for us. I would have liked to read about the lore etc, but not being hikers, we weren't paying $28 for the 4 of us to not walk up the rock!

Trails, and rocks and streams and trees and views - This is worth the drive from wherever you live. My Family (including FurBabies) love it.

We went on spring break, had to wait in line for about 30 minutes (in car line), but not a big deal. It moved continuously. Be sure to take sunscreen and water. We did the summit hike, straight up to the top. Took about an hour, we were hot even in spring 80 degree temps. Was well worth the climb,... More

We drove six hours to get there and it was spectacular! I'm a nature lover and I often drag my family around to nature walks. I was hoping that this trip didn't bite me in the behind. Kids weren't thrilled, but the higher we went, the more they enjoyed the climb. Ten minutes in, we couldn't get them to wait... More

It's definitely worth a visit. Take some flashlights with you and be sure to check out the caves. They could be a bit challenging and don't try if you are claustrophobic. But if you are looking for something adventurous, this could be a great spot.

We didn't make it all the way to the top, but we also had someone with a cane. She got about 1/4 of the way up, and the rest of us went about half-way up, until it got a little too steep for our abilities. It's an interesting stop, and the kids love it. Go in the morning before it... More

I have been to this park twice now and I will go back again. This park is unlike any other State Park. On the rocks you are free to walk and wander as long as you are able to. The second time we went we found a cave on the back side of Enchanted Rock. Inside the cave you lose... More

I have been to this park in the past, but this was the first time I saw Enchanted Rock at sunset. As I told my kids, this place is a huge pink rock jutting out of the earth, but it's so much prettier and more peaceful than people might imagine. The hike up can be steep and slick, so good... More

We tried to go to the park on a morning during spring break, but it was ridiculously crowded. However, we returned at about 7PM and found the park nearly deserted. We had enough daylight to make it up to the top, explore and come back down. It was gorgeous at dusk.
