Enchanted Rock Viewshed Conservation District
The Enchanted Rock State Natural Area (ERSNA) is located in the center of HCLT's 19 county service area. Since 2009, our organization has designated Enchanted Rock as a priority focus area because of the unique and fragile condition of this spectacular natural landmark. ERSNA is the destination of more than 300,000 annual visitors from around the nation and world. Most visitors make the trek to the top of the large granite dome to enjoy the surrounding view of a relatively undeveloped landscape formed from ancient granite domes more than one billion years old. HCLT, along with others, recognized that the visitor experience of hiking "The Rock" would be seriously compromised if the view from the summit became cluttered with unchecked development including rooftops, roads, and power lines.
