scenic route 05 KLEPPER E ROCK KITE 2

Eighteen miles north of Fredericksburg on Ranch Road 956, a 425-foot pink rock looms over the landscape. Enchanted Rock State Natural Area protects the giant granite dome that is both a National Natural Landmark and in the National Register of Historic Places as an Archeological District. The formation inspires many visitors to hike to the top (take the Summit Trail) and, sometimes, to fly a kite. For more information visit Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Enchanted Rock State Natural Area site.
