After hiking up Enchanted Rock, we decided to take a climb through the cave. You can find the cave on the opposite side of Enchanted Rock from the summit trail. The cave entrance doesn't look like much - it is pretty small. Be prepared with very bright flashlights and shoes with really good grip. You will be crawling, climbing, sliding,... More

My teenage boys love exploring the cave. On our first visit to Enchanted Rock, we weren't prepared. They went into the cave, but quickly decided it would be better to go prepared on our next visit. Since then, they always go better prepared. We made our 4th trip this summer and they've enjoyed going through the cave every time. You... More

The Cave is on the far side of Enchanted Rock. It is a Talus Cave, one formed by boulders. It is a nice place to get out of the sun when you're on the Rock.

We took our four children ages 7, 8, 10 and 16 through the cave. Be prepared with good shoes, head lamps and lots of water. Some of us didn't have the best shoes, and only my husband had a headlamp. We held onto our flashlights, but as a mom is was difficult for me not being able to see all... More

We enjoyed walking up the rock, but I'd skip the cave unless you are prepared. You would need a light and possibly a guide as there aren't any trail markers once in the cave. The cave has lots of tight spots and could be difficult for some people. We went in February and it was about 65 degrees outside, but... More

We climbed to the summit and experienced breath taking views, explored the caves and ran the trails. The park rangers were super nice and helpful, can't wait to go again!!!

This is a wonderful park and although the 'hike up' to the top of the rock does not look difficult from below...it is a little bit of a work out. Taking time to appreciate the views makes the hike up quite manageable. The caves at the top are fun exploration for the kids and those adults looking for just a... More

difficult to get to. we weren't limber enough to go to where it looked to be the cave . you must wear good, gripping shoes, or you will slip on the smooth rocks
