Visitors can enjoy primitive backpacking, camping, hiking, technical and rock climbing, picnicking, geological study, bird watching, and star gazing (minimal light pollution). Remember, at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, do not disturb plant or animal life, geological features, or Indian or historical artifacts. These park resources are protected by law! Bring your own firewood. Rock climbers must check in at headquarters; route maps and climbing rules available.

Very steep and awesome!

Fantastic trail, great view as a reward!

Hot, humid, sunny, steep....but worth it! Bring lots of water and sunblock.

This allows access to some of the best crack climbs in Texas at the Triple Crack area just below the main dome. Fun for just a hike, as well.

Like every great hike, bring your rope to really experience the area.

Like every great hike, this ends with a great view.

Killer run around the domes and various granite outcroppings! The climbing here is about the only public place you'll place cams (climbing) for hundreds of miles.

Did about 2/3 of the loop then cut in around the lake to head up a gulley of boulders and around to go to top of rock. The loop is easy, rocks get a lot more challenging. When we went in to the park they told us trail to top was closed because of rain (makes slippery rocks!) but most people were still going up, it had dried quite a bit by the time we got there. Beautiful scenery!

An excellent trail with diverse views and terrain. Not too heavily trafficked so plenty of wildlife. The shade and breeze make it a good option in the summer. Suitable for families.
