The climb to the top is quite long but it is worth it. I was not prepared to make the climb and only had on sandals. Be sure to wear sturdier shoes as some of the trail up is quite rocky, steep and uneven. There...More

The views. Oh, the views. This little gem just right outside of town is a fantastic activity. A super easy hike ending with some of the most amazing views you can imagine (without going all the way out to the Rock). Entrance is free, parking...More

I live in the area and really like this little park. The zig-zag fence entrance is weird, but the trails themselves and the views are nice and relaxing. I really like that there are a couple of places to sit to enjoy the view.

This is a really cool little place to stop. It's pretty quick, but you get some really cool views from the top. I love that there is a Cross mountain here. Thank you!

Short, steep hike up to large, old cross on the top of the mountain. 360 degree view at the top. Has several places to sit if you want a lunch spot with a beautiful view of the hill country.

We saw this online and decided to try it out. We went in the morning and hiked up the hill. It's not a hard hike and only takes 5-10 min. to get to the top. It is a pretty view and the quiet is enjoyable.

We saw signs for this place on our way back from the Enchanted rock. After looking up some information, we decided to visit before dinner time. It is a short hike (5 min at the most) but it's worth taking because of a pretty view...More

Referred to this little known gem via a helpful park ranger at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park, I have no problem giving this easy-to-get-to hiking-mountain view of Fredericksburg a full five stars. Locals have carefully built walking steps parallel to the slippery gravel path winding...More
