Join a park ranger as we hike to the top of Enchanted Rock to catch the sunset!

We'll hike up to the top of Enchanted Rock during the golden hour and catch the last rays of a dying day from the top. Learn how even though Enchanted Rock appears to be a solid steady unchanging place, it's actually in a state of constant transformation.

Meet: Gazebo at the beginning of the Summit Trail
Distance: 1.5 miles round trip
Elevation change:
425 feet.
