Willow City Loop is a great trip through the Hill Country even when the wildflowers are not in bloom. At times it looks like Colorado with very tall mountains and rocky cliffs. An easy drive from Fredericksburg, it is well marked and an incredible scenic tour. Plan to go in the morning and take your time on the loop. Expect... More

Free to do and you may get some nice wildlife sightings. We sadly only saw roadrunners and of course deer. But a really nice safe drive. Road was much better than I anticipated and they are making improvements at the moment too. No places to stop en route for refreshments so be prepared.

The Willow City Loop is a few miles north of Fredericksburg, TX. The road meanders through the Hill Country, through private ranch land. The pace is slow and otherworldly as one drives through meandering cattle surrounded by woods, wildflowers, mountains past rocky streams. Views open over a valley. This place is glorious. I've traveled the world, but this is the... More

We drove the Willow City Loop August 1, and loved the trip. The road is paved, and there is always a surprise around the next corner. We saw more deer than we could count, at one place my husband spotted 4 beautiful bucks. We did see a couple of beautiful overlooks, and the views were gorgeous. Of course at this... More

We were there in the spring and sure enough there were Bluebonnets everywhere you turned. It is not on main road and is a perfect place to stop and take photos. You will drive pass some private lands.

Went on the drive around 2 pm in June and while it didn't have the gorgeous wildflowers of spring it was still stunning. We saw plenty of gorgeous scenic views and loads of animals. If you didn't see any animals then you are driving too fast. Just sit back and relax while you take in all the wonderful sites.

This is a slow but very pretty drive through the countryside, lots of wildlife and wild flowers. Saw lots of cattle, deer, rabbits, etc. but no snakes, but of course you don't get out of the car and got walking through the brush either. We did see lots of cactus but one cactus looked exactly like Mickey Mouse, pretty cool... More

You should not miss this drive in the spring. The wild flowers, especially the bluebonnets, are really something to see, especially if we've had a colder and wetter winter. The drive itself is nice any time to see all the wildflowers the Texas Hill Country has to offer.
