Echo Canyon Trail is the fun part where you get to do some work. You scramble across boulders and enjoy the canyon views as you make your way to the summit of Enchanted Rock. At almost any point on this trail, you can launch yourself on a granite hike directly up the sloping side of Enchanted Rock.
If you go hiking at Enchanted Rock, I recommend that you hike around to the backside and take the Echo Canyon Trail up to the summit. It is a beautiful path to the top, filled with chirping birds and other wildlife.
Today’s mission was to hike some trails and climb up to the top of Enchanted Rock. My plan was to take the Loop Trail to the Scenic Overlook. From there, I would backtrack a little and hike over to the Echo Canyon Trail. Then I would meet up with the Summit Trail and roam around on top of the Rock until the sun went down. It was an awesome day for this hike!
