Access Issue: Rule changes for pets and trail closures 30 minutes after sunset
Rule Changes Concerning Pets at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area to Take Effect March 1. 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.
Cavers Nightmare is so short that it doesnt really constitute are route. There wouldnt be much of a reason to climb it at all, unless you found yourself at the top of Chunky Tuna and needed a way to get down. At the top of Chunky Tuna is a slot behind a flake on the right side. Crawl under the flake and back into the slot until you can stand up. Work your way up the easy chimney (a couple good face moves near the top). Best climbed without a rope or harness its short with no protection, a rope and harness would just get in the way. Either walk off the top or traverse left to the anchors above Pro Sweat.
