Tradition says that energy comes from this very special place. Take a picnic and spend some time at this lovely spot. You have to be prepared to walk to enjoy all the spots. Some great photo shoots. About 7 Dollars per person entry !

This beautiful art of nature is wonderful. Gorgeous hike and views. Get there early as it fills up quickly and they close the park.You then have to wait on line to get in.

Hi! Sorry I just saw your question. Go early as it fills up fast and then they close it. Wear shoes with s good rubber sole so you don't slip. Take water!! Maybe wear sunglasses and a hat. enjoy it's spectacular!
Do you need to purchase a pass in advance to get to the enchanted rock park?

No, you just need to get there early and get in line. You buy passes at the gate as you enter.
