Wow!
Apr 2021
We took this hike to the top on a recommendation. We are from the flatlands, and not as young as we used to be, so this was a pretty good little hike for us. But we took our time and had a bottle of water with us. Took nearly a half hour to get on top. Boy, it was well worth the hike. What a view of the city and the area. There are some benches on top, well placed to see different views. There's a little park at the base with a nice display display area with native plants.

We stopped here after the hike over Enchanted Rock. It took us probably 15 mnt to get to the top we watched the sun go down and it was very relaxing.

Mini Hike since we couldn't get in to Enchanted Rock
Mar 2021
This was a cute little (mini) hiking area. We got some great photos and the story of the cross on top was very interesting :)

Overlook view of area
Mar 2021 • Friends
While visiting a winery on Thursday, March 4, 2021, our hostess recommended a trip to Cross Mountain. Our curiosity was peaked with her suggestion so we drove to Cross Mountain park around 4:45PM. The walk on the path was just right for us baby boomers. There was a 360 degree view of the area with benches to sit on and enjoy. Having the cross on top was interesting and added to the view and the walk up.

Hidden Gem Off the Road
Dec 2020 • Couples
The wife and I found this on the way to the Enchanted Rock which was closed for the week.(not on web site). On our way back to town I look up the road and saw
this cross on up of a hill. I looked.again and saw 2 people up there too. So we tried to find the entrance and we did. This cross sits on top of a small mountain and as several trails that goes to the top and around the mountain. At the top is a nice view of the the surrounding area just outside of town. And on the clear day you can see for miles. Like small hikes this place is for you.

Short Hike to The Cross
Nov 2020 • Family
Yes, it's a strenuous hike for someone who is out shape, but the good thing is that it is a short hike to the cross (5 minutes top).

Cross Mountain Hike
Aug 2020 • Couples
Park open dawn to dusk. You have to enter through a maze so don't be fooled that the "park" is closed. Allow 1 hour max. Great city views, nice breeze, and a little shade. If in town, spend an hour taking the very short hike. Flip flops are fine just a little rocky but nothing major. Take a picnic lunch or go in the evening and enjoy some wine uptop the "mountain" - hill.

Good city view

Hike up a small mountain. Fairly easy but wear hiking boots. Nice views, picnic area. Would be good for kids who want to hike up a "mountain". Short way up and various trails to choose. So close to downtown

Great 360 Degree View of the Town and Countryside
Dec 2019
After a short walk up a somewhat rugged trail to the top of Cross Mountain you will experience a great 360 degree view of the town of Fredericksburg and the surrounding countryside of the Texas Hill Country. The cross at the top gives the mountain (hill) its name. The park has adequate parking, nice restrooms and a short nature trail in addition to the trail up to the cross. The park is on the north edge of the town.
