This is a really nice drive through the hills. Do not take it, however, if you are in a hurry. It is best enjoyed driving very slowly- less than 20mph There are cattle that tend to wander onto the road. It is very scenic and worth the slow drive.There are many opportunities to take pictures of flowers, cattle and majestic... More

There was nothing blooming yet but we didn't expect it so weren't upset. Roll down the Windows, drive slowly, and enjoy nature. We went late afternoon and saw 63 deer! It was amazing to watch them. The local cows are also pretty entertaining!

We had a great drive and only saw 1 other vehicle (probably not the norm). Spectacular beauty, deer and fresh air.

I usually find rides like this very enjoyable and can see beauty everywhere. Maybe I was expecting more from the previous reviews, maybe i was turned off by the lady in the visitor's center in Fredericksburg that frowned when we told her we wanted to go here and she said the ranchers have pulled the wildflowers out to discourage tourists,...

The drive was peaceful and saw many beautiful scenes for pictures. The hills and valleys were inspiring.. One great place not to be missed is the ranch that has old boots as fence post toppers, just great!!!!

Willow City Loop is about 12 miles outside of Fredericksburg and about 12 miles long. Go when the wildflowers are in bloom and you will not be disappointed. The road is curvy and narrow in spots so stopping to take pictures is not allowed.

The title of my review applies to me, too! I've been traveling to Fredericksburg since the 1980's, and it wasn't until 2013 that I finally drove the Willow City Loop! Now I drive it each time I visit the area as it provides some of the best Hill Country photography. Word of caution, the Willow City Loop cuts through private... More

If you have Fredricksburg as a home base and you do things in the area, this is one of the best things you can do.

First off I want to acknowledge that without TA we would have never experienced this place. With.my family in fredricksburg for a day in which we had planned to visit enchanted rock state park but found out it was closed that one day for permit hunts. Plan B, let's ask TA. Found this place and the reviews were very favorable.... More
