Enchanted Rock State Park 6/8/2019

We did a 5K around the south side of Enchanted Rock.  We walked out to Moss Lake and back. We did not climb to the summit. There is a $7.00 entry (if you don’t have a pass). To make sure you get in to this popular location you must order online at: State Park Reservations

Enchanted Rock

Coming in from the North, you can see the dome long before you reach the entrance to it.

Even with a pass there was a waiting line to get in.

We parked facing this jumble of rocks.

Summit makes a nice background for pictures.

Yucca

Great place to take a picture.

View of the trail as it winds uphill.

Looking back down to where we took the picture.

Great scenery.

View from the overlook back toward where the cutoff was.

Trail has a washout.

Just a big Live Oak Tree.

Looking south across Moss Lake.

We turned around here and head back.  Everything in reverse looks a little different.
