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

Fantastic scenery and wildlife that you are not going to find anywhere else in Texas. Honestly. You do not want to miss this drive.

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.

A chance to see some great scenery, deer, cattle and even a roadrunner!! Loved the fence with the boots and hats on the fence posts!

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.

Willow City Loop is a wonderfully beautiful hill country drive that goes past several private ranches. You are not allowed to get out of the car, but you really don't need to...the views from the car are extraordinary. I usually take this drive during blue bonnet season, but went this past week. It was just as beautiful...just different wildflowers. We... More

Stay ON The Road, Drive VERY Slowly, otherwise you'll miss the views! Don't forget, on the weekends there's a BBQ Hut At the Start of the Loop!
