Enchanted Rock Hardy Hike and Lunch

Enchanted Rock, a huge, pink granite boulder that rises 425 feet above ground and covers 640 acres, is a favorite Central Texas destination. The short, steep trail to the top of the dome and the four-mile trail that winds around the granite formation offer spectacular views. Trails are moderate to slightly strenuous.

We will hike the four-mile loop trail, then climb to the top where we will enjoy the scenery and relax as we catch our breath.

    Just a reminder that we change the clocks tonight. Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 3rd. Set your clocks back one hour ("fall back."). You can do that at 2:00 a.m., or before you go to bed. Get an extra hour of sleep!

    Of course the computers and cell phones and ipads all are smart enough to do this on their own... but some of us still have old-fashioned clocks too.

    Carpool at 9:00. Corrected time should be in write-up now.

    Under Carpool Location you say to meet at the Starbucks at the Y at 8:00 am. In the details at the top of the page it says to carpool at 9:00 from the Starbucks at the Y. Does there need to be some clarification?

      I tried to correct that typo. All references should say 9:00 a.m. for the carpool time now.
