“A Treasure of Hill Country Beauty!”
Review of Willow City Loop

Willow City Loop
Ranked #10 of 105 things to do in Fredericksburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This little known drive is such a treasure that we are reluctant to share the information for fear of future congestion! But, at least once, you need to take this 45 minute winding drive and check out the vistas and abundant wildflowers. Gorgeous! Do NOT get out and take photos, however, as the surrounding property is private property and they have little tolerance for trespassing. Signs make the turnoff from Hwy 16, north of Fredericksburg.

This year the wildflowers were a little sparse but it is still a gorgeous drive! Took my family hoping to see bluebonnets but they were few and far between this year. It is still a drive I will do every spring with or without flowers.

Awesome road trip just outside of town. Approx. 13.5 miles from town and the entire loop is only 13 miles in length and brings ya back to the main highway. Gorgeous wildflowers, scenic views, livestock, peaceful.

This "country" drive is so peaceful and we really enjoyed the beautiful wildflowers. It's a drive where you just want to take your time and really absorb the restful solitude of the surroundings.

Located just northeast of Fredericksburg, this 13 mile road trip traverses ravines, ranches and rugged, rocky hill country. We traveled the route in both directions, on different days, and preferred the south-to-north trip.

There was a fair display of bluebonnets and wildflowers on an off-year. Still, it was worth the drive to see wild countryside and vistas of the hill country. The road is narrow, and you have to pay attention to oncoming traffic, but it is an easy drive, with lots of cattle crossings to keep your speed down. The road is through private land, so no stopping is permitted.

We love back roads, and this will be a destination that we will drive again!
