Beginning March 1, new rules will take effect at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area designed to balance the need to better protect sensitive natural habitats atop the rock, including the vernal pools, and still allow visitors to continue to enjoy central Texas’ most popular destination with their pets.
Starting Tuesday, pets will only be allowed in specified camping areas, day-use areas and the Loop Trail. Pets will no longer be allowed to accompany hikers on the Summit Trail that ascends to the top of Enchanted Rock.
Most trails, including the Summit Trail, are closed 30 minutes after sunset, allowing park visitors to view the sunset and safely descend to the parking lot. The Loop Trail is the only trail open after sunset to gain access to the primitive camping areas.
For more info:
There are documented and undocumented boulders and problems scattered on and around Flag Pole. But most of the established climbing exists on The Redtail Rocks, The Caribou Boulders, and The Boundary Boulders.
To approach from the parking lot, follow Sandy Creek from the East end of the parking lot. Flag Pole is the dome on your left immediately before the fence marking the park's boundary.
From Buzzards Roost, look for a lightly used climber's trail on the Northeastern side of Buzzards. The trail is located close to the gully that is commonly used as the descent or top tope access for Fear of Flying and Little Feat. If walking around Buzzards from Bush Crack (head to climber's left) the trail is found before reaching Little Feat.
