Hike Enchanted Rock!
The massive pink granite dome rising above Central Texas has drawn people for thousands of years. But there’s more at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area than just the dome. The scenery, rock formations and legends are magical, too! You can hike, backpack, camp, rock climb, picnic, bird, study nature, geocache and stargaze. (You cannot swim here or ride bikes on the trails.) Explore nearly 11 miles of hiking trails. Take a virtual tour with our Interactive Trails Map. All trails close 30 minutes after sunset, except the Loop Trail. The Summit Trail may close in wet weather. Rock climbers must check in at park headquarters. You can pick up route maps there and read the climbing rules. Read through the Climbing Information before you come. https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/enchanted-rock
Watch The Bats
Watching a colony of Mexican free-tailed bats emerge is quite an experience. During emergence, the bats spiral upwards in a counter-clockwise direction to gain altitude. Aerial predators, such as red-tailed hawks, sometimes catch bats as they emerge. Terrestrial predators, such as raccoons, feed on fallen bats. The bats can travel as high as 10,000 feet and as far as 60 miles each night to feed on agricultural pests such as the corn earworm (a.k.a. cotton bollworm), cutworm and webworm moths. Each bat can eat its weight in insects nightly. The Old Tunnel colony may devour over 25 tons of moths per night! https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/old-tunnel/bat-viewing
