Join a park ranger for an exploration of the stories in our stars.

Come out to the park for a (hopefully) unobstructed view of the heavens.
Hear some of the stories behind the best-known constellations!

As an International Dark Sky Park, Enchanted Rock boasts some of the darkest skies in this part of Texas, which means the stars at night ARE big and bright deep in the heart of Texas. We will be bare eye stargazing. Feel free to bring your own telescope or camera.

Location Lower Parking Lot. There is no hiking as part of this program.
Park in the Summit Parking or RV Parking lots.
