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....

I am a disabled veteran and disabled veterans get in parks free. When I approached the man to pay for the ticket for my daughter, I told him that I was a disabled vet. 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

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!!!
