Park Closures

Park closures are possible on weekends and holidays due to capacity. All trails close 30 minutes after sunset, except the Loop Trail, and pets are only allowed in certain areas. . . .

When parking lots are full, the park will close for up to two hours. This can happen September through May and holiday weekends, sometimes as early as 11 a.m. Flashing signs on approaching roads will let you know if the park is closed. One sign is north of Fredericksburg on R.R. 965; the other is on Hwy. 16 near the R.R. 965 intersection.
Consider visiting on weekdays in these busy months.

Pets are no longer allowed on the Summit Trail that ascends to the top of Enchanted Rock. Pets are allowed on the Loop Trail below the rock, the day-use area and campgrounds. Pets may not be left unattended, must remain on a leash no longer than six feet at all times, and must stay  in authorized areas only.

The Loop Trail will be open after sunset for campers to access the campground and to view the dark skies.
