"A hike to the summit of Enchanted Rock has been a rite of passage for every teenage Texan since its acquisition in the 1980s. One of the largest batholiths in the country, it has been designated a National Natural Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its celebrity, much like Ayres Rock in Australia, is in its striking appearance as well as in its mystical draw."
