Beautiful and challenging trail. Don't be afraid to get down on your hands and knees as you negotiate some of the boulders. Sunny and rocky trail. Not sure where the trail goes? Keep an eye out for the trail posts that orient you in the right direction. Not recommended for those with mobility problems- some fancy footwork and balancing involved.

Not very well marked, but decent views for the effort

Combining Enchanted Rock with Echo Canyon, Base Trail, and Turkey Pass loop makes for a very nice morning hike with interesting views. While this hike is generally easy, there are slightly moderate areas where a little rock scrambling is required. If one has time, going up Little Rock, Freshman Mountain, and Turkey Peak using social trails or your own path can be interesting.

I would not categorize this as a hard trail. Moderate views and pretty even trail. Enjoyable for a morning in Texas!

Coupled with Echo Canyon Trail to encompass Enchanted Rock. Trails well maintained but signage not always easily seen. Great views. Not as heavily travelled as the summit trail. Good opportunities for pics and wildlife viewing. Carry water and have proper footwear.
