4. Fall in Love With
Enchanted Rock is one of the most heavily visited parks in the state park system and for good reason. Located 18 miles north of Fredericksburg, this National natural landmark is known for its breathtaking views of the terrain by day and the starry sky by night! Enchanted Rock has fascinated visitors for thousands of years and has sparked many legends about the rock’s “enchanted” nature. This pink granite dome stands 425 feet above the ground and makes for a great day out in nature. Visitors can camp, hike, rock climb, and stargaze for a small fee. The hike to the top of the rock is only .6 miles, but don’t be fooled by the distance, this hike is steep. For those who would prefer a less challenging walk, the Loop Trail is a four-mile hike around the rock. If you find yourself at Enchanted Rock at night, don’t forget to look up! Happy trails!
