I drove up to Enchanted Rock today using 2 lane ranch roads much of the way. A very nice drive, with quite a few vinyards, and a whole posse of motorcyclists “sharing” the road.
Enchanted Rock is a 425 foot pink granite batholith north of Fredericksburg, TX. It’s beautiful country, and there is a nice series of trails surrounding the area in the park. I chose not to summit The Rock, because that trail was packed, and I could hear screaming children from down by the creek. Instead, I struck out on Turkey Pass Trail, and then circled Enchanted Rock. I didn’t see a dozen people doing these trails. It was wonderful.
