Like many things in the Hill Country, the Texas Bluebonnet Trail is boom or bust depending upon the rain. We've been fortunate to see some awesome wildflowers, including Bluebonnets, in the rainier years, but have also seen a lack of results due to the ongoing drought. Best advice is to do your research before making the trip if all you... More

We enjoyed the beauty and the heavenly smell surrounding the beautiful and plentiful blooms. The crowds on weekends are a slight problem but we loved the flowers

Last week, the blue bonnets in the Hill country seemed to be at their peak. Between Llano and Mason, and between Llano and Fredricksburg, there were brilliant stands of the Texas state flower everywhere! Also lots of other wildflowers which made for a kalideoscope of brilliant spring hues. I can't remember a prettier spring!

The Llano area is usually the best place in Texas to see spectacular displays of bluebonnets. The best time to go is late March to early April. It's helpful to spend a night or 2 in the area, so you can see the fields in early morning or late evening light. And while you're there, sample the outstanding barbecue in... More

Three years of drought seem to have taken their toll. We didn't see the vast fields of flowers that we were told about, though we did see some here and there, as well as the other common wildflowers of the area. We did find one large field of bluebonnets near Ennis, which ALSO has a bluebonnet festival and trail. Still,... More

This is a great activity only when the flowers are in bloom and weather is perfect. That is unless you like uncomfortable weather and just a few flowers.

Best time for a nice Sunday drive is April and May. The bluebonnets will not disappoint you. Drive the golden triangle between Llano, Mason & Fredericksburg.

Rt. 29 west of Burnette 31/2 miles to Texas Farm 2341 North until it dead ends. Amazing wild flowers and views.
