Get there early, it's crazy busy on weekends. Had to spend 2 insanely boring hours waiting in Fredericksburg! Great hike - avoid crowded main trails. (Smaller than it looks!). Cheers.

I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because you have to get thete really early on weekends (like 8 am) otherwise, the park closes, and the rangers turn you back inwith a pink slip to come back at 230 pm, without this puck slip, you cannot get in at 230, then thete is a 15 min wait until you pay the $7 entrance fee, the place is definitely worth it, get there on weekdays rather than weekends

Easy loop hike. It was honestly more like a walk than a hike, but it was neat to view Enchanted Rock from all angles.

Beautiful scenery and challenging trail!

Short hike with a moderately steep incline.

Completed this hike accompanied with a ranger. I was pleased overall.

Great experience. markers were slightly hard to follow the first time, but this is a hike I do regularly so now it is second nature.
