Even though wildflower season is the prettiest time for this drive, it's also the most crowded. If you go off-season, you can enjoy the rolling hills, majestic oaks, livestock grazing, wide open skies, and uncrowded roads in this beautiful part of the Hill Country. We...More

Great scenic loop even without the wildflowers - today we say 30 something deer including one buck with a large rack of antlers. Also saw a fox and a few hawks.

This was our second time here. We counted 53 deer as we drove slowly through. It was raining, so we didn't stay as long as we would have liked. We also got some fine pictures of deer and birds.

The drive was lovely. I live in north Texas, but the Willow City Loop looks like what everyone thinks Texas should look like.

We read about this trip and just had to check it out. It was amazing. We saw parts of Texas we'd never seen. Lots of rolling hills, ranches, cattle, rocks, deer, rock formations. It was amazing. If you visit this area, please be sure to...More

An amazing drive through the wildflowers. Best when the bluebonnets are in bloom. Check out the boot fence! The drive was busy during the week - can't imagine how it is on the weekends.

It is easier to find by 1323 as it ends at sign for "Loop". It is a two way hard surface road.

We came from Dripping Springs so I am sorry, no help but I wanted to say be careful of Rattlesnakes. They like Bluebonnets. Careful getting out of car to take pictures. We saw quite a few of them.
