After getting directions from Virginia Walker, I went on the trail. I wanted to just walk through the entire field. However TEXAS gets very hot, but I have never seen nature like this.

We drove down to the Texas Hill Country April 22-23 to view the wildflowers. Blue bonnets were fading, but lots of Indian paintbrush, Indian Blanket, Texas Sunflowers, etc. colors were varied and stunning!!

We were there at peak season, but didn't experience ANY of the heavy traffic other reviewers have noted. Maybe because it was a weekday, but almost seemed like it was just us and the locals. The views between Marble Falls and Llano were gorgeous, BUT we had a much better experience when we took 29 through Kingsland. Bluebonnets all the... More

The country around Llano is Bluebonnet central for Texas. Make sure you find your way to the Willow City Loop... it is a narrow 2 land road that runs in a loop off of Texas 16. Take your time during bluebonnet season since sections of the road or water fords come down to cooperation with oncoming traffic. But enjoy the... More

If you can stomach driving super slow in a caravan of other cars - go! If not, stay away. I enjoyed the views, but there are other, less crowded, roads that are just as nice.

One of the better years for bluebonnets and indian paint brushes. But, likely too late for those now the first week in April was the peak. The other flowers are not coming up yet.

Llano is the area to visit to see absolutely beautiful wild flowers this year. Hwy 16 North and South and Hwy 71 East. Don't bother with the Willow City Loop.
