A couple of weekends ago we went to Lost Maples State Natural Area which is located in Vanderpool, Texas, a town west-northwest of San Antonio and south of I-10.
Along the east loop, not far from campsite A, we found a sign delineating something called Monkey Rock. A middle aged couple were coming from the opposite direction headed towards the rock too, and I asked them if they had been before, to which they replied they hadn’t and were just as curious as us. The sign didn’t specify distance or anything else so I had no idea if we were in for a hike up the bluffs or what.
I tried to find some legitimate information on Monkey Rock but I didn’t find anything other than a lot of other hikers, campers, and outdoor enthusiasts writing on blogs or sharing photos. This monkey rock is probably the most photographed monkey rock in the world….or at least Texas!
