Join a park ranger or Master Naturalist as we hike to the top of Enchanted Rock.

Along the way, we'll learn about the geology, history and biology of this special place. We'll hear tales of derring-do and see sweeping panoramic views!

IMPORTANT: Reservations are required to enter the State Natural Area on weekends. For this event -- we suggest you purchase the 6:30A-8:00A entry time and use self-pay when you arrive. Please arrive with enough time to be at the meeting location by the start time.

Future Dates: If you've read this far, you're probably looking for additional dates for Guided Summit Hikes! We're on hiatus through August due to the late summer heat. And while we don't have them posted online yet, we'll likely have a Guided Summit Hike every Saturday in September and through the fall - winter - spring starting at 9:30AM from the Gazebo.
