WE love Enchanted Rock State Park! Wear your walking shoes and carry some water with you. I think almost anyone can make it to the cave. You may have to pace yourself if you don't get outside regularly, but you can make it up to the cave! You will be rewarded with great views and a fun little cave to... More

Make the drive out to Enchanted Rock. We left late - I would suggest to get there early to avoid the heat and crowds. Make sure you wear good shoes and bring water. Keep you pass as you can come back for sunset.

Great place to hike for all levels of hikers. Go straight up summit trail to get to the top in less then 30 mins. Wear proper shoes so as not to slip on the rock.

Very fun place to explore! We didn't have a map of where the cave went so we were reluctant to go very far. If you like to climb and explore, grab a map and have fun!

We went in March with two families including 5 preteen-teen kids. Its not an easy cave hike Its not guided Its not for claustrophobic people It is fun You will feel like you are a hard core spelunker We all made it in one piece, but you definitely need to have sturdy shoes and a flashlight........because it gets very dark....

He wanted me to show proof that I was a disabled vet !!! Who carries their disability paperwork with them wherever they go?? Plus the site... More

Took our daughters & grandson up Enchanted rock & down the other side. Hiked all the way back around. It was a great experience! But make sure you bring lots of water bottles! We ran out & we took a bunch.

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
