Several girlfriends and I made a roadtrip last week to Enchanted Rock state park, about an hour and 45 minute drive southwest of Austin. I have been there several times, and have hiked to the summit, but love to go back anytime. This was the first visit for my friends. We hiked to the summit and enjoyed the views. Then we hiked a couple of the other trails, which I had never done before. I recommend taking the time to do it, if you can. Remember to bring along drinking water for your hike. You’ll want it. 🙂
Make sure you check out their website before heading out for trail / park closure information and rules about pets, camping, parking, etc.
