Update August 31, 2000

On August 31, 2000 the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission officially approved a National Recreational Trails Grant for the Friends of Enchanted Rock in the amount of $30,680. The grant will be used to reconstruct severely eroded hiking trails at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, near Fredericksburg, Texas. The project will focus on the main Summit Trail and the Upper Echo Canyon Trail which are the most heavily utilized trails at the park. The grant will fund the purchase of equipment and materials used in the construction effort. A volunteer work force will be used to provide the labor for construction over the next 2 years. Granite building stone and crushed granite materials will be acquired from a local quarry operation and imported to the park for use in the trail construction/stabilization. Volunteer support is crucial to the success of this project. The Friends of Enchanted Rock will be calling upon individuals and groups in the near future to solicit support for this important project.

Very Interesting! The TPWD will accept grants for E-rock, but not for Hueco.
