One of the best state parks in Texas. Loop trail is easy walking, interior trails (including up the rock) are far more demanding. All around outstanding place.

The fissure is a nice feature at Enchanted Rock. It allows a nice beginner experience for climbing and bouldering. Be carfeul! Take water and a flashlight and be prepared to climb.
