Join a ranger for a stroll under dark skies along the Loop Trail.

Join a park ranger as we explore the Loop Trail under the light of the stars. Along our journey we’ll look and listen for signs of the creatures that inhabit the park at night (which now will include us!). Learn how dark skies and light pollution affect these critters and some easy things we can do to help them (and ourselves)!

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.

Meet in the campground driving loop, between sites 18 & 19. Park in the campground parking lot.

Time: Approximately 1.75 hours.
Distance: 1.0 miles there and back again.
Elevation gain: 150 feet.


  • Flashlight (preferably with a red lens)
  • Drinking water
  • Walking shoes
  • Dress for the weather

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. No need to register, just show up.
