Climbed to the top of Enchanted Rock. A 425 foot vertical climb. Great area with views that are forever. Definitely creates a memory. Would recommend this to anyone capable of walking.

Good visitor centre and rest rooms, ample parking. Well signposted, some of the trails were partially closed due to the storms the previous week but they were working on them. We hiked to the top, nice walk, good views from the top, very windy on...More

We climbed / hiked the rock on Thanksgiving. It was a great time. Not too hot. Good time to see colorful trees.

We did the summit hike. We found it challenging, and felt a sense of accomplishment when finished. It's a beautiful park, and I recommend going. There are other very beautiful trails if climbing a giant mound of granite isn't to your liking. Go early, particularly...More

One of a kind experience in the hill country. Get there early on weekends as crowds will result in temporary closures. Fairly strenuous but short hike to the top with great views all around. Bring water. We also did the loop hike and loved it.

This place is amazing! You can camp, picnic, hike, climb, explore all around. Beautiful views. Been here twice camping in the primitive camping sites with my troop and it is wonderful place. The boys love the climbing and exploring.

It’s first come first serve. When you get there you can tell them which one you’re going to.
