There is Peace on Earth. Don't believe me..take the scenic drive on the loop and see for yourself. The wildflowers in their natural setting are breathtaking. The endless meadows filled with the Texas State Flower the Bluebonnet make for remarkable views and wonderful backdrops for photos as long as you are respectful to the property owners and don't tresspass.

This was a wonderful way to spend an hour or so. The scenery is so pretty, and the wildflowers were in bloom when we drove it last spring--simply delightful. I wholeheartedly recommend this activity :)

A nice drive and a great way to see the hill country up close from you car. We were here in November, so the wild flowers were long gone. I imagine in the Spring this drive is beautiful. We saw lots of deer and some pretty vistas. NOTE: Google maps has the Willow City Loop road marked wrong. You want... More

It's fun to spend the afternoon with old friends from high school having lunch together and driving on the outskirts of Fredricksburg looking at the glorious wild flowers (especially the state flower - bluebonnets). If it's a good year for bluebonnets, this is a prime place to find them. The peak time is usually late March to April. This year... More

This was my second visit to see the wildflowers. A camera is essential as well as a reliable vehicle. You don't need 4 wheel drive but a high clearance is recommended

We were looking for some 2 lane roads and stumbled upon this gem! The stretch from Hwy 16 to Willow City was fantastic and we drove it in October! Definitely worth the detour!

Willow City Loop is a great trip through the Hill Country even when the wildflowers are not in bloom. At times it looks like Colorado with very tall mountains and rocky cliffs. An easy drive from Fredericksburg, it is well marked and an incredible scenic tour. Plan to go in the morning and take your time on the loop. Expect... More

Free to do and you may get some nice wildlife sightings. We sadly only saw roadrunners and of course deer. But a really nice safe drive. Road was much better than I anticipated and they are making improvements at the moment too. No places to stop en route for refreshments so be prepared.

The Willow City Loop is a few miles north of Fredericksburg, TX. The road meanders through the Hill Country, through private ranch land. The pace is slow and otherworldly as one drives through meandering cattle surrounded by woods, wildflowers, mountains past rocky streams. Views open over a valley. This place is glorious. I've traveled the world, but this is the... More
