A nice drive and a great way to see the hill country up close from you car. We were here in November, so the wild flowers were long gone. I imagine in the Spring this drive is beautiful. We saw lots of deer and some pretty vistas. NOTE: Google maps has the Willow City Loop road marked wrong. You want... More

It's fun to spend the afternoon with old friends from high school having lunch together and driving on the outskirts of Fredricksburg looking at the glorious wild flowers (especially the state flower - bluebonnets). If it's a good year for bluebonnets, this is a prime place to find them. The peak time is usually late March to April. This year... More

This was my second visit to see the wildflowers. A camera is essential as well as a reliable vehicle. You don't need 4 wheel drive but a high clearance is recommended

We were looking for some 2 lane roads and stumbled upon this gem! The stretch from Hwy 16 to Willow City was fantastic and we drove it in October! Definitely worth the detour!

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.
