Deer, critters, cliffs, running creeks, wild flowers, rolling meadows, bluffs, soring big birds, and a fence wearing cowboy boots. We love riding the Loop.

This is a beautiful drive at any time of year. We had been there during bluebonnet season several years ago and were enchanted. This time there were still some wildflowers but also beautiful vistas. We say a fox cross the road and numerous baby horses and cows.

The blue bonnets are the stars of this trip, but all the different flowers are EVERYWHERE. It is truly one of the most beautiful natural wonders I have seen anywhere in the World. This year's wet climate made is even better.

I think we must have missed the prime time to come in earlier Spring based on other reviews. Either that or our world travel leaves us unimpressed with this particular landscape. Wouldn't recommend the time investment at this point, not that there weren't some pretty areas.

After nearly 16 years of weekending in Fredericksburg, we finally made time to try the loop on our way back home. Well worth every minute. We went through on a Monday & traffic was nil. Scenery was amazing - you feel like you aren't in Texas anymore. Beautiful cliffs & streams, stunning vistas. If you have time, definitely give this... More

This is Texas at its best....beautiful, sweeping vistas, wildflowers, wildlife and, of course, cattle ranches.

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
