I was excited to see they allow dogs in the park! Your dog must be on a 6-ft leash. It was so much fun hiking with our two dogs, we would definitely do it again!

We had been to Fredericksburg one other time and heard about Enchanted Rock. This time we went with some friends and we all decided to hike to the top of Enchanted Rock on a Sunday morning. It was a day or so after a 5" rain (rare there) and there were a lot of little pools on the granite, which were interesting. There was one larger one at the top that was deep enough for little kids to wade and splash around in.

The hike is not challenging for experienced (aka fit) hikers, but it's not an easy walk in the park for those of us who are non-hikers. But it was well worth the time and effort. It takes about 45 minutes to climb up, with short rest stops. Take your walking stick if you have one, and walking at a "zig zag" really does make it easier, although it takes a big longer.

I would love to camp out so as to be there after dark (it closes at 8 p.m.), particularly on a cloudless night, or on a night with a full moon, and to be able to watch the sunrise. But there's no lighting, so it would probably be difficult to hike up in any case.

The views of the Hill Country are wonderful. We left Fredericksburg about 9, and I would have left earlier. It got pretty warm by the time we got to the top, and that was in mid-September.

Absolutly beautiful to breath taking scenery. The hiking trails are easy although some are easier than others. The price is not bad. The State Park is well kept with camp sites, playground for children, bathrooms and a gift store. The air and water are clean with no polution of either. Lots of trees in the park; but the mountain is bald. The bald face of the mountain is pink granit and that's part of it's beauty.

This is a unique experience. Going up just on friction on granite to the summit is hard to top. My family enjoyed it so much that we hiked around the hole mountain. Pay attention to the signs, as there are more trails marked than visible on the trail map. Big forks have written destinations, some marked trails are for climbers only.

Accessable, hard to get lost, naturally Hill Country. Easy trails if you want them. Challenging bolder scrambles if you want them. Lots of nooks and cranies. I live nearby and go there all the time and I can still find place to explore that I have never been before.
