Not Enchanted
Apr 2021
The rocks were not enchanted, but the scenery is compelling. Trails we took were easy to moderate. Some folks hiked the summit, but we did not. The interesting rock formations were much lower. A bit of agility is necessary to get up and about on the rocks, but the pathways and trails lead you around to see the sights from easier places.

Reservations are required. The Texas State Park system website is not user friendly, and you must register to make a reservation. This system is not merged with the County Park reservation.

Wonderful hike, be sure to plan accordingly
Apr 2021
We dd a great hike up to the summit mid-morning, thankfully before it got hot, then went around through the canyon trail and back around base trail. All told it was close to 3 hours. Be sure to have a pack and plenty of water, maybe a snack. Some great views all around.

Beautiful outdoor area close to town

If you are visiting Fredericksburg, this park is only 25 minutes to the north. There are may beautiful expansive views on the road to the park. Climb the rock as far as you like. We visited recently and the bluebonnets were really visible on the roadside!

Worth doing!
Apr 2021 • Family
If you’re in the area, I highly recommend visiting Enchanted Rock! It’s an easy hike the the top, and the view from the summit is incredible. A word of warning: just because this is open to the public, and you see people of all ages hiking it, it is not without dangers. One in our party accidentally stepped into a deep crevice in the rock, and injured her knee badly. Could’ve been a lot worse!

Hiking at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area
Mar 2021
The hiking trails are moderate, several ones of different lengths available. The scenery was excellent. Must make reservations in advance.

Great day at the rock
Mar 2021 • Couples
Wife and I love going to enchanted rock for a morning hike, it wasn’t too busy and we had a blast. There is a nice peaceful lake on the side of the rock, just know if you take any of the other trails around it....there isn’t another path up the rock besides the main one.

First time to this beautiful place
Mar 2021 • Family
Make reservations for sure——it was not crowded but everyone was covid friendly. Weather was windy chilly and overcast so that was not awesome. Bring water, sunscreen, lip balm and first aid kit——lots of slippers rocks and thorns.

Beautiful steep climb
Mar 2021 • Couples
Reservations are required even for only a day use pass. This is a popular place however it does not feel crowded because there is a limit of day passes that they give out. There are several different hiking trails. Beautiful scenery. Hiking, climbing and camping. Young children might have a more difficult time climbing and hiking here.

Great view
Mar 2021 • Family
The view of this park was amazing, but when we came the bathrooms were not working. They had portable bathrooms. And the trails were confusing and no clearly defined. We enjoyed the hike but we were expecting for the trail to be more clearly defined because we had a toddler we us and didn’t want to venture out without guidance. But other than that the view was amazing.
