We drove the Willow City Loop today (March 29) and the bluebonnets and wildflowers were in full bloom. So amazing to see the flowers along the roadsides and in the fields and winding down to the creeks. So many picture moments. We went early so there was no traffic and it helped that the day was cloudy and a Tuesday.... More

Since moving from the base of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, it has been a challenge to become truly excited about any Texas scenery. That all changed when we sought out the somewhat difficult to find Willow City Loop--it was Colorado-level extraordinary! The wildflowers are abundant and just amazing. But that was not all--the terrain was almost mountainous, and gorgeous.... More

We drove the Willow City Loop as part of our BlueBonnet Road Trip the day before Easter. It was well worth our time (1.5 hours). There were amazing views of natural areas and some great photo opportunities. Please be careful driving; as folks get a little distracted while looking at all the beauty of nature. Bluebonnets are currently in full... More

We had a beautiful drive today! The loop is a beautiful, scenic drive with a large amount of bluebonnets. We went early so it wasn't too busy. I can see how it could get congested easily as other reviewers described. All that said, the wildflowers on Hwy. 16 between Mason and Fredericksburg had better wild flowers than the Willow Loop.

Made the drive on 23MAR16 and the blue bonnets were beautiful. Would highly recommend this drive to see outstanding natural views that rival any we have ever seen. This is a beautiful part of Texas, and this road gives you a great look into backroad Texas. At the end of the loop, be careful to take a left on route... More

This is about 13-16 mile drive close to Fredericksburg. Definitely worth the time. Great to do in the spring. I did not see the speed limit posted but everybody was going very slow, so you may want to allow at least 30 minutes, but more like 45-60 to take it in. We were told that all the land on both...

We drove the loop on 3/14/16. Several nice vistas of the hill country along this narrow 2 lane ranch road but not many places to pull off and take photos etc. The road is a little rough in a few spots and many cattle guards to cross. It is camera worthy with several creek crossings but we were looking for... More

We made the drive yesterday. Even in misty rain, it was beautiful. The bluebonnets are starting to peak and bloom. Seriously one of the most beautiful drives ever.

I've taken visitors on the loop to see wildflowers in good years and it can be breathtaking. Make sure you have someone else in the car with a fast shutter on the camera because there are signs every so often warning you not to stop. This is a drive through attraction only. If you want to stop and get a... More
