Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, Echo Canyon Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Echo Canyon Trail passes between Enchanted Rock and Little Rock, and a good third of it is scrambling over and around an amazing jumble of rocks and large boulders. Dogs need to be big and agile enough to do this.

If yours is not, consider hiking in the back way from the Loop Trail which this one intersects, past the lake and into the canyon, turning back and retracing your steps when you reach this rocky part, because this trail offers some stunning and unique sights. Otherwise, take Summit Trail from the parking area up Enchanted Rock until you see the Echo Canyon Trail sign off to the left (it will feel like you have climbed most of the way up, but that is hardly the case)."

"Scrambling up a solid pink granite dome, skirting boulder fields, and avoiding largescale dropoffs—while experiencing an elevation rise of 425 feet in half a mile—make this an incredible hike. You’ll see vernal pools that have taken thousands of years to form. As an added adventure, Enchanted Rock cave, a deep, narrow, covered ravine, lies about 150 yards north of the summit." Read more
