Enchanted Rock: Visit Fredericksburg TX
Hi, Daryl Whitworth here at one of my favorite places in the Texas Hill Country -- Enchanted Rock.
I used to come here as a kid 30 years ago and now I often bring my kids here to hike and enjoy this beautiful part of the Hill Country. This is one of the best places in Central Texas for hiking and rock climbing.
Enchanted Rock is a huge, pink granite dome, that covers over a square mile. It is the second largest granite outcropping (batholith-underground rock formation uncovered by erosion) in the United States.
The Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is located 18 miles north of Fredericksburg on Ranch Road 965.
It is known as Enchanted Rock because the Native Americans in the area believed it was haunted due the noises made by the granite; plus the rock will glisten in the moonlight.
Things to do:
• Technical Rock climbing
• Primitive Camping
• Geological study
• Bird and wildlife watching
• Star gazing (minimal light pollution)
Enchanted Rock is pet-friendly, but pets must be on a leash.
During peak seasons (March to June and October to December), the park may reach parking capacity, requiring the park to temporarily close on weekends (sometimes as early as 11 a.m.). The park will reopen when sufficient parking is available.
The park is open 7 days a week year-round from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
And admission is: $6 adults; children 12 and younger are admitted free.

Come and enjoy the beauty of Enchanted Rock here in the Hill Country.

Dallas then developed as a strong industrial and financial center and a major inland port, due to the convergence of major railroad lines, interstate highways, and the construction of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in the world.Dallas is rated a beta(+) global city.
