If rock climbing makes you happy, then you’ll love this park. Before you hit the trails be sure to stop in to the park headquarters and sign the climbing release form. They also carry route maps and climbing rules. Be sure to check the website for climbing information. Additionally, according to the website, “Our park store carries some gift items. You can buy wood for campfires at the park. Please bring your own drinking water, as it is in short supply due to the ongoing drought.” There is also an existing burn ban in effect, so you may not have a fire while at the park.


According to the website, “to protect this Natural Area, pets are only allowed in the designated day-use picnic areas, the campgrounds, and on the Loop Trail (pets are not allowed on any other trail). Don’t leave pets unattended, including in vehicles and at campsites, and keep them on a leash no longer than six feet at all times.”


After exploring this park be sure to head into Fredericksburg and explore the quaint little town. Look for some delicious food at one of the many German restaurants, shop for adorable, unique items at a boutique, and wonder at the beautiful architecture.
