    Steven Yackel reviewed Turkey Pass Trail at Enchanted Rock

    2 months ago

    We started this hike with a climb to the summit on the summit trail. Once we reached the top, we explored the opposite side of the rock and some of the rocks along the edge, eventually following the contour of the rock until we found a spot where we could safely make it down to the trail below.

    Once we were on the trail we picked our way through the stones along a rough section of the trail until we arrived at the climbing area. From here we caught the base trail along the north side of Enchanted Rock until we hit the junction with The Turkey Pass trail We turned right and headed south with about 200 feet of additional elevation gain. This saddle between two higher points makes the perfect spot to cross back over to the south side of the rock. Once on the other side we went around Frog pond and caught the mail loop trail back to the car. Thankfully this last section had a little shade for as we finished out the hite;

    Overall the majority of this hike is pretty easy with just a few locations with some elevation gain.

    Steven Yackel reviewed Enchanted Route Summit Trail

    2 months ago

    This relatively short trail takes you to the top of the large pink granite dome located at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. The trail starts at the parking lot at the bottom of the rock. After just a few hundred yards on a marked trail, you begin to climb the rock really quickly. There is kind of a designated route, but you are pretty much free hiking on the rock to the summit. From the summit, you can get a great 350-degree view of the surrounding park.

    The temperature outside when we started the hike was 80 degrees with clear skies and lots of sunshine I am not a big fan of the heat, but the rock seemed to reflect the heat right up and made for a hot hike even though it was cooler than it had been for a while. I would worry about hiking this in the real heat of summer. Be sure to take somewhat with you, it is important to stay hydrated. I was also thankful to be here on a weekday while school was in session, the crowds were small but there were others still enjoying the hike.
