Even though bluebonnet season had peaked and gone, the other wildflowers were plentiful and blanketed the hills and valleys with yellows and oranges and it was very green from all the recent rains. The prickly pear cactus were blooming big yellow blooms. We saw many deer and it was a delightful, peaceful drive over hills and down into canyons. Don't... More

We rode the motorcycles through and it was the prettiest we have ever seen it. We missed the bluebonnets but the rest of the wildflowers where breathtaking. We saw deer, turkey, turtles and lots of butterflies.

Living close by in Wimberley, this is just over an hour away. Fortunately Texas received rain both in the fall of 2014 and the Spring of 2015. The bluebonnets were beautiful but I am not sure they will ever recover from the terrible drought we have been suffering. That being said, this was probably one of the best showings we... More

I wouldn't want to do this loop on bike on a Spring weekend when the road is crowded with gawkers in cars, but mid-week it was delightful. The riding was good; we stopped often to photograph the flowers, which were truly astounding. If the wildflowers aren't in bloom, this loop is probably far less of an attraction.

There's absolutely nothing like cruising along the Willow City Loop on a quiet Monday morning on Electric Bikes! The flowers were gorgeous, the butterflies were flying, and we even spotted a wild turkey crossing the road! We bought our bikes from Rocket Electrics, and can honestly say that it was more relaxing than riding the loop on motorcycles (which we... More

We went to see the wildflowers but were a little late. There were still many blooming but the blue bonnets were way past prime. This was in early May. Would be better in April.

Great drive through the hills. Winding roads through the hills and along the creek. Beautiful vistas and views of the hills and valleys. We were lucky enough to be there for the wildflowers. Well worth the trip.

We went with friend on motorcycles, it is a must to ride, enroute for the twisted sisters. I would take about an hour detour but well worth the photos and the ride.

We have driven about 1500 miles in the Texas Hill Country from Llano down to Bandera, Texas in the last few months. Hands down, the Willow City Loop is by far the best drive we have taken in our Hill Country drives. It has some spectacular views and beautiful wildflowers still in bloom all along the road. This is a... More
