A 42-mile paved highway through the Central Texas mineral region, including Enchanted Rock, to the historic German town of Fredericksburg. This drive passes through one of the most scenic parts of Central Texas, interesting not only to sightseers but also to geologists. Over the years a vast array of minerals have been found in the Llano area, including gold, silver, asbestos, marble, serpentine, fluorite, molybdenum, and iron. At one time a mine near Burnet was the nation’s largest graphite producer. The attractive, colorful granite has been exported far beyond Texas—it appears in buildings from Asia to Europe. Special attractions: Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, Admiral Nimitz State Historical Park, Fredericksburg, hiking, camping, scenic views, wildflowers, rockhounding, rock climbing. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
