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:
P1. Climb the thin slab past a single bolt aiming for a point on the overlap just to the left of the tree. Pull the overlap using big holds to gain the slab above. Thin slab climbing leads past three more bolts to anchors located just below the Beer Can Alley.
P2. From the anchors, step right and climb past three bolts to a ledge with a tree on. The climb gets a little confusing above the ledge as you can see a number of bolts that belong to different routes. The actual line continues straight up and then veers slightly to the right passing three additional bolts. The anchors are on a sloping face.
Rappel the route to get back to the ground.
