The climb to the top of Enchanted Rock is really cool. It's not a very difficult climb but a couple of spots as you get close to top can seem kinda steep. If you're out of shape you'll be huffing and puffing but its totally...More

My Better Half and our best friend hiked to the top. Their first visit ever, my first time since I was a kid over 55 years ago! Quite a steep hike but well worth it. Stunning vista for 360 degrees. If you're a Native Texan,...More

Can’t think of anything like this in Texas . Truly amazing ! In addition to the park , the drive to get there is also so enjoyable . Large slabs of granite sticking out of the ground along the road leading to the park ....More

Went early at 8:20. It took about 30 minutes to walk up. We were early enough that it didn’t get too hot but definitely go early.

I hadn't been to the rock for over forty years, but I wanted my husband to go. Still beautiful, and this place now has a new fan. Day use fee only $7 pp.

If you're planning on a walk to the top of the rock, don't turn up late in mid summer. Temps on the rock can be brutal, and well in excess of 100F most days from May-September, if you want to walk up the rock get...More
