One of our park rangers just checked the surface temperature of Enchanted Rock, it was 133 degrees! 😳 @TPWDnews— Enchanted Rock SNA (@GoEnchantedRock) July 19, 2018
The forecast is showing about two straight weeks of 100+ degree weather in the hill country. This means Enchanted Rock will be extremely dangerous any time other than first thing in the morning, or late in the evening. Please plan your visit during cooler hours or cooler months.— Enchanted Rock SNA (@GoEnchantedRock) July 17, 2018

Make sure you know how to recognize signs of overheating...and how to avoid them.
