Thanks to David Meyer for adding this peak.

A large, solid, granite dome a lot like Stone Mountain in Georgia. This dome is very versatile, with many optional routes varying from a walk up to a hard climb up. There are also other hills around it which provide some challenge. Enchanted Rock is part of Enchanted Rock State Park, and it is the second largest dome in the nation, behind Stone Mountain in Georgia.
