Stopped here on our way to Enchanted Rock. Don't expect a long hike. Its a short trail up to the top of the hill but the views are nice. A good warm up!

The views. Oh, the views. This little gem just right outside of town is a fantastic activity. A super easy hike ending with some of the most amazing views you can imagine (without going all the way out to the Rock). Entrance is free, parking...More
