“Loved it!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We loved the hike up to the top of Enchanted Rock and also hiking around the bottom. Both are very picturesque. The park ranger looked at our graying hair and slightly more than average weight and suggested the trails around the base of the rock, but we disregarded him and hiked right up to the top. It's not as hard as it looks! But go early in the morning if the day is going to get hot. And take drinking water.

“Great Park,Great Weather & Fun for People of All Ages!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

We went to Enchanted Rock the last weekend of October 2012. The weather was amazing, the scenery was FANTASTIC and the trails were nice and wide. All of the trails are short. We couldn't find the cave but we did take the LOOP trail that took us all the way around Enchanted Rock. We had deer that came close to us, we saw several people repelling down the side of Enchanted Rock. It was a fun half day event that people of all ages will enjoy!

“A Texas Treasure”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I visit E-Rock several times a year. It is such an awesome place to get away for hikes or simply explore. You can challenge your body but climbing the Summit trail straight up or take a leisurely walk around the perimeter trails. My favorite part is Little Rock which is just to the side. Lots of things to see and a less traveled area. Be one with nature and have a great time. You will not be disappointed!

“Not for the faint at heart”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We have always wanted to climb Enchanted Rock. It was a beautiful day in October to do it. I do not recommend doing this when it's 100+ outside. Or if you do, bring PLENTY of water. It's a steep climb, but if you take your time it's great!!
