Willow City Loop is about 12 miles outside of Fredericksburg and about 12 miles long. Go when the wildflowers are in bloom and you will not be disappointed. The road is curvy and narrow in spots so stopping to take pictures is not allowed.

The title of my review applies to me, too! I've been traveling to Fredericksburg since the 1980's, and it wasn't until 2013 that I finally drove the Willow City Loop! Now I drive it each time I visit the area as it provides some of the best Hill Country photography. Word of caution, the Willow City Loop cuts through private... More

If you have Fredricksburg as a home base and you do things in the area, this is one of the best things you can do.

First off I want to acknowledge that without TA we would have never experienced this place. With.my family in fredricksburg for a day in which we had planned to visit enchanted rock state park but found out it was closed that one day for permit hunts. Plan B, let's ask TA. Found this place and the reviews were very favorable.... More

When Texas wildflowers are in bloom this is undoubtedly one of the best places to see them. April/May but check with local wildflower watch lists. The road is private and there is no stopping along the way. Avoid weekends and you might be able to take a quick photo from the car without holding up traffic.

Every year we do an all-day motorcycle trip through the Loop. Last 2 years there were no wildflowers. Rumor has it the locals removed the flowers to restore privacy. (Traffic was getting out of control on the weekends.)

Beautiful views down a narrow country road. Very crowded when the bluebonnets are out. Motorcyclists - leave yourself plenty of room in front. The cars stop quickly to see the flowers. Well worth a springtime drive.

Scenery I didnt know we had in this area. Was told to go there for the bluebonnets. The flowers were beautiful and the scenery was spectacular. A new place to take visitors.

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
