We rode the Loop on a Harley trike (rental). It was so beautiful, and I was especially glad to see all the wildflowers, including the famed bluebonnets. I enjoyed seeing so many little clear streams, and the twists, turns, and hills were stunningly scenic. One feels completely "in the wilds" of Texas on this drive. The road is barely more... More

We were told of this drive by one of the locals, and it did not disappoint. 10 miles or so of wonderful fields of wildflowers. Lots of people stopping to take pictures. The highlight of our day.

If someone local doesn't tell you about this drive, you might miss it. This is a lovely country drive (no stops along the way so plan accordingly) with the best Blue Bonnets and other flowers.

OMG - the white poppies made us think that we had snow. The area is rugged but the road is blacktop and easy to traverse. Go EARLY. We arrived early but stopped so often that the late morning crowd caught up with us. During flower season the traffic is heavy.

We have been to the Willow City Loop several times during wildflower season (April). We just returned from another trip there this past week-end. I don't think I have ever seen it so beautiful! We went on Friday, so there were not too many other visitors and it was wonderful! If you have not been before during April for the... More

We really enjoy this part of our drive that we make on our annual trip thru the hill country this time of the year to see the wildflowers. The bluebonnets were excellent, the poppies were especially good this year. Very enjoyable, lots of good views. Great for photos. Need to plan drive this time of the year to get most... More

The slow paced drive around Willow City Loop was magnificent. I was born and raised in Texas but did not know such beautiful scenery existed in Texas. Granite mountains (not hills) surrounded by creeks that have created deep gorges and canyons filled with wild flowers are highlighted by the lacey new growth of mesquite, cedar and cotton woods. Where the... More

If you want to see real working ranches in the beautiful hill country, this is the place! Be aware that this is a narrow road that runs through private property with free range cattle. The road is in very good condition; however, several bridges are very narrow. I would not take this drive in an RV. Be prepared to take... More

This is not a good year for the Willow City Loop. We expected to see many more wildflowers, especially considering the abundance seen on Hwy 16 as we neared the area, but we were disappointed with only a few colorful patches. We have driven the loop every couple of years since moving back home to Texas in 1993, but have... More
