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 crowded on a Sunday... parking will reach capacity. The hike is short and can be steep, but worth it for the views. Park is very well maintained; the park staff are doing a fantastic job!

Last weekend I took my 73 young mom on the summit hike then down to echo canyon to get out. Next day we did the loop around the rock. We took the trail counter clockwise. Cutting through the valley between Turkey Peak and Enchanted proved to be a rock scramble for short people and then again crossing between Enchanted and Little rocks was even more challenging, but it was beautiful and we enjoyed both days.

Pretty easy walk. The views are worth it.

Loved it!
