This hike was very tiring but also very exciting. At some places on the rock, it did get steep but it eventually became a bit more leveled out. The higher you get, the more you can see the gorgeous landscape. There is limited shade, so lots of water will help from all the sun. Overall, this was a great experience. Definitely would recommend to anyone.
It’s good to know I ✔️it off my bucket list. The energy is serine, the hike up is fairly easy although I would not recommend doing it with very young children.
Gorgeous, well kept trails, primitive camping w/composting toilets, covered close in camping for families, high points to catch a great view or have lunch, lakes, streams, climbing and a park store. The parking lot fills quickly so plan accordingly. With all the rocky terrain and little shade on most trails it’s sure to be hot! BRING H20! A great winter camp ground, warm days and cool nights. No fires in the primitive sites for obvious reasons. A great place to run. Lots of photo ops.
This is a beautiful campground, with so much to explore and do. They have all kinds of campsites to fit your skill set or needs. Had a great time visiting the near by town of Hendrickson and Austin.
While rather difficult to get a campsite here, you won't regret taking the extra effort. The campsites are nestled right along Crabapple Creek at the base of Little Rock, providing astonighing views from all directions. This paired with the classic state park faciltiy access makes it amoung the best in Texas.
A friend and I went here on New Year's Eve Day. We hiked only, did not camp but I cannot wait to camp there. It was a great surprise to me that I had not been there before. Such a beautiful place with so much to see.
I have never seen so many stars! Most beautiful thing I have ever seen!
Great state park for a couple day visit. Good hiking trails. Disappointing that they closed the caves and do not allow dogs on the big rock anymore.
you can camp, hike and rock climb here, beautiful
Beautiful place but you'll definitely want to get here early during the summer as it's hot with little shade. If you time your trip right, you'll be able to see vernal pools at the top of the rock - small bodies of water that contain fairy shrimp, among other creatures! They come and go with the wet/dry seasons & are a really cool bit of nature that aren't always so easy to find!
We camped at site 23 and it was really nice! Tree-lined, cozy and semi-private. The tent pads are really hard so bring hammers. The campgrounds closest to the rock have a trail to lead you up to the main trails. Most of the trails have good markers but maps are recommended as some trails are unmarkedice
