Enchanted Rock is one of the nation’s largest batholiths—an underground rock formation uncovered by erosion—a 640-acre dome of pink granite rising 425 feet above the surrounding countryside. Tonkawa Indian legend and mystery surround the formation, designated a National Natural Landmark in 1970 and opened as a state park in 1984. From the Loop Trail, hikers can view all sides of Enchanted Rock and its environs.

Beautiful trail. Excellent for beginners to moderately experienced hikers. Great for those who want to break in new equipment/gear before going to very difficult trails.
