Enchanted Rock YRE
Fredericksburg, TX

We did a 5K around the south side of Enchanted Rock. We walked out to Moss Lake and back (not the official route). We did not climb to the summit. There is a $7.00 entry (if you don't have a pass). To make sure you get in to this popular location you must order your day pass online at: State Park Reservations

Coming in from the North, you can see the dome long before you reach the entrance to it.

Even with a pass there was a waiting line to get in.

We parked in the NW parking lot facing this jumble of rocks.

Summit makes a nice background for pictures.


Great place to take a picture.
