Enchanted Rock is located off highway 16 between Llano and Fredericksburg, Texas. Largest Granite Mountain in the Southwest, 500 feet high covering 640 acres. Enchanted Rock has two caves and many curious boulders, and the name is derived from famous Indian Legends. Captain Hayes repulsed a band of Indians here in 1841. Tourists and vacationers can enjoy this gigantic Enchanted Rock with its many beautiful shade trees, running spring water and picnic grounds.
