Best Day Trip

Enchanted Rock State Natural Area

Enchanted Rock has caves for the spelunker, hike-in camping for the outdoors-type, and "mountain" climbing for those who like to play with ropes and pulleys. Most folks just find it a treat to hike all the way up the steep incline to stand and look out from one of the high points in our mostly flat state. During the school months, flocks of school kids can be seen running up the smooth flat side while their less energetic teachers follow along slowly. This is one amusement park that can be taken at your own pace, created by nature, not man.
