Catch sunset from the top of the Rock and stay up to see some stars!

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. 

Meet at the gazebo.

Time: Approximately 2.5 hours.
Distance: 1.5 mile round trip.
Difficulty: challenging
Elevation gain: 425 feet.


  • Good hiking/walking shoes
  • Drinking water
  • Dress for the weather
  • Flashlight (preferably with a red lens option; mainly for walk back to vehicle/campsite)

Entrance fee for the park is $7/person (children 12 and under are free); no additional fee to attend this program. Entry is free with a Texas State Parks Pass.

Please no flashlights or cell phones during this event (it can take 20-30 minutes for our eyes to adjust from bright light to darkness). Red-tinted lights are permitted.
