Details

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.
