I took my daughter and niece (11 and 7yrs) up Turkey Peak and then took Base to Loop back to parking. I liked the Turkey Peak summit better than Enchanted Rock summit because it is very lightly trafficked and I prefer differed terrain. Enchanted summit is one thing only, walk up a big rock; no trees to grip on while you maneuver over rocks and boulders etc.. Turkey peak is more my style. Good shoes, water and a small snack is all you need to complete this but be ready to put your hands on the ground because it's no easy walk! This is a beautiful area.
