Note: signing up here at Meetup does not guarantee space on this trip. We will confirm if a spot is available with each person, based on availability of tent space, etc.
Join us for our annual camping trip to Enchanted Rock in the Texas hill country. The Rock is a huge, pink granite exfoliation dome that rises 425 feet above ground. It is one of the largest batholiths (underground rock formation uncovered by erosion) in the United States. The park has a good network of hiking trails and one can hike off trail on the granite domes. This is one of the most popular state parks in Texas.
Leaders are Frank Blake and Lorraine Gibson. We will have a series of guided day hikes at the park.
Car camping means tent camping at a regular car accessible campground. Participants will need to supply their own camping gear, food, and transportation. But we will try to facilitate carpooling as we are able.
Cost of the outing for camping will be approximately $25/person, and $15 for second person sharing a tent and not bringing a separate car. Deposit for the trip is $10, and we will provide instructions on where to send that after we confirm participants for the trip. We typically collect the balance of the trip fee on the trip.
Entrance fees to the park are $7/daily and this is the responsibility of each participant. If you have an annual Texas Parks pass, you will not have to pay an entrance fee.
If we should have to cancel the outing for weather reasons (such as icy roads in a cold snap), we will refund as much of the deposit as we are able.
