Beautiful views down a narrow country road. Very crowded when the bluebonnets are out. Motorcyclists - leave yourself plenty of room in front. The cars stop quickly to see the flowers. Well worth a springtime drive.

Scenery I didnt know we had in this area. Was told to go there for the bluebonnets. The flowers were beautiful and the scenery was spectacular. A new place to take visitors.

Ended up here to replenish my water bottles while on a cycling trip. The proprietor welcomes us, was more than happy to chat and tell us the history of the bar and area. Great place that I will certainly visit again and stay to eat. Well worth a visit, the building itself has great character

If you arrive for wildflower season, this is the place to be. The road actually crosses the many ranches and for that reason you are asked to stay on the road and not park anywhere. The weekends require the sheriff's deputies to keep it moving so my suggestion is to come during the week. It is a pretty drive all... More

We had read that in previous years that the wildflowers were spectacular on this loop. However, the extreme drought resulted in very few flowers for this season - only cacti and scrub bushes. As everyone knows the abundance of wildflowers depends on the rain.

In a lot of respects this is a very simple drive and at this time of year no wild flowers, but we really enjoyed it, I got a real flavour of Texas countryside and ws really happy that we had bothered to look this drive up.

This is a nice little ride / drive that is not too long. I have done it many times & it is prettiest in the Spring when the wildflowers are blooming. Also, don't forget to stop by the Knot in the Loop Saloon for a great burger! It is a fun little place.
