Best drive during April/May

April and May are the best times to take this drive to see the wildflowers. May be traffic on the weekends but take your time and enjoy the views.

Drive North on the 16 from Fredericksburg, either take the exit for Willow City or the Willow City Loop just a little further on 16. Either way you will end up on a pleasant country road with twists and turns with picturesque views and roaming deer and cattle. Try to complete before sundown where there is a heightened risk of...

This is a must do every spring time in Texas, especially if you have friends in from out of town. The willow city loop drive/lunch in Fredericksburg/ beer in Luckenbach combo is always a treat. I would definitely suggest doing this midweek to avoid traffic on the roadway, as this is a very narrow winding road to begin with. Really... More

You might not believe you are in Texas except that Texas as a little of everything. Surprise yourself and take a drive.

Even though we live in Fredericksburg, the Willow City Loop reminds us why we really enjoy being in the Texas Hill Country.

Kick back and enjoy the jukebox, atmosphere, and cold beer! You never know who you will run into in the Knot- we love to make friends with who ever we happen to meet there. It is definitely a one of a kind bar- no frills- and the beer is always cold, cold, cold.

This drive is very popular with bikers around the country. This is one of the most beautiful in Texas and worthwhile if you're headed to south Fredericksburg or north to Lampasas. You drive through the rugged and hilly terrain of Hill Country and envision that the cowboys rode their horses through here. Gorgeous cliffs and scenery throughout. If you're able... More

This is always a great wild flower trip. Also, great hill country vistas. It is just a short drive from Fredericksburg.

The scenery is great year round but the best time for this drive is when the wildflowers are blooming. It is just a short drive north of Fredericksburg. The loop drive took us about 30 minutes.

You must go in the spring for the wildflowers, particularly the blueboneets. Awesome views and a beautiful drive in the countryside.
