PRESS BUTTON TO CONTACT VOYAGER FOR FREE ASSISTANCE WITH PERSONALIZATION. Enchanted Rock (16710 Ranch Rd 965, Fredericksburg TX) is an enormous pink granite pluton rock formation located in the Llano Uplift approximately 15 miles (24 km) north of Fredericksburg, Texas, USA and 15 miles (24 km) south of Llano, Texas. Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, which includes Enchanted Rock and surrounding land, spans the border between Gillespie County and Llano County, south of the Llano River. Enchanted Rock covers approximately 640 acres (260 ha) and rises approximately 425 feet (130 m) above the surrounding terrain to elevation of 1,825 feet (556 m) above sea level. It is the largest such pink granite monadnock in the United States. Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, a part of the Texas state park system, includes 1,644 acres (665 ha) and was designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1936. Archaeological evidence indicates human visitation at the rock going back at least 11,000 years. Folklore of local Tonkawa, Apache and Comanche tribes ascribes magical and spiritual powers to the rock (hence the name 'Enchanted Rock'). While attempting to hide from Anglo settlers in the area, the natives would hide on the top two tiers of the rock, where they were invisible from the ground below. The first European to visit the area was probably Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca in 1536. The Tonkawa, who inhabited the area in the 16th century, believed that ghost fires flickered at the top of the dome. In particular they heard unexplained creaking and groaning, which geologists attribute to the rock's night-time contraction after being heated by the sun during the day. The name "Enchanted Rock" derives from Spanish and Anglo-Texan interpretations of such legends and related folklore; the name "Crying Rock" has also been given to the formation. Other legends associated with Enchanted Rock are: 1) Named “Spirit Song Rock” for native legends, 2) Revered by native tribes as a holy portal to other worlds, 3) Anyone spending the night on the rock becomes invisible, 4) Spanish priest fled to the rock pursued by native tribes, disappeared, and returned to tell a mystic tale of falling into a cavern and being swallowed by the rock, encountering many spirits in the tunnels, eventually to be spit out two days later, 5) Haunted by spirits of warriors of a now-extinct native American tribe who were slaughtered at Enchanted Rock by a rival tribe, 6) Haunted by a native American princess who threw herself off the rock after witnessing the slaughter of her people, 7) Alleged sacrifices at the rock by both Comanche and Tonkawa tribes, 8) Believed to be a lost silver mine, or the lost El Dorado gold, 9) Bad fortune and death will befall anyone who climbs the rock with bad intent, 10) Footprint indentations on the rock of native American chief who sacrificed his daughter, condemned to walk Enchanted Rock forever, 11) Woman’s screams at night are of a white woman who took refuge on Enchanted Rock after escaping a kidnapping by native Americans, 12) Spanish soldier Don Jesús Navarro’s Enchanted Rock rescue of native maiden Rosa, daughter of Chief Tehuan, after her kidnap by Comanches intent on sacrificing her on the rock. More than 500 species of plants, from four chief Plant Communities — Open Oak Woodland, Mesquite Grassland, Floodplain, and Granite Rock Community — inhabit the rock. Vernal pools, ecologically threatened depressions of flora and fauna adapted to harsh environments, contain fragile invertebrate fairy shrimp. Other wildlife includes bats, ringtails, squirrels, and fox. A wide variety of lizards, including the Texas Horned Lizard also make the Enchanted Rock area their home.
