Written Directions

From Fredericksburg, TX take N Llano St north east and you'll see Lower Crabapple Road on the left. Take Lower Crabapple road north till it runs into Ranch Road 965 and go right. Take this another 5 or so miles and you'll arrive at Enchanted Rock State Park (amazing!!).

Scenery

Hills, wild animals, creeks, and windy roads are some of the great features of this road. At the end you'll see "Enchanted Rock" which is an amazing site. From the Texas Parks and Wildlife website: Enchanted Rock is "a huge, pink granite exfoliation dome, that rises 425 feet above ground, 1825 feet above sea level, and covers 640 acres. It is one of the largest batholiths (underground rock formation uncovered by erosion) in the United States".

Drive Enjoyment

These are typical paved road. There are some bumps and blind spots but none of them are major

Tourism Opportunities

If you detour from the road for about 8 miles to willow city (on to Eckert Rd) there is a store but that is it other than the state park.

Nice ride to Enchanted Rock. Clean restrooms at the park. Connects to Hwy 16 so the ride can be extended on up to Llano for food and gas. Returning down 16 take the Willow City Loop for a very slow ride through ranches and scenic vistas of hills and canyons. You can return to 16 to go back to Fredricksburg. Easy ride with curves and hills. Not much traffic.

Gotta watch the turns just south of Enchanted Rock 12 miles outside of Fredricksburg. Failed to negotiate a turn and got short changed by another rider and went off the road on a curve at about 60 mph, ran over a metal reflector, down the embankment rode along the barbwire fence, kept it up, got it under control and was about to bring it back up to the road then there came a drainage ditch. My VTX 1800c, my and my girlfriend went flying about 50'. We survived but my bike was totaled. I split my femur, and cracked sternum, she suffered several bruises. We were lucky to be alive after running off the road at 60 mph and hitting to ditch.
