We have heard about the Willow City Loop for years. Now retired, finally had time to locate and drive while staying in Fredericksburg. We thoroughly enjoyed our hour or so drive on this narrow, almost one lane, loop with just beautiful scenery. Some bluebonnets left,...More

This loop has a lot to offer in views for the distance. Winding roads, hills, valley views, the boot fence, flowers... I’m glad we made drive.

The drive we took was the Willow City Loop road. It was narrow, rough and crossed private land. It was a very beautiful drive. We saw lots of wildflowers, wild turkeys and a roadrunner. This road may not be the loop referred to by this...More

We went on the loop twice, once starting at each end. We saw the wildflowers and several kinds of wildlife. Beautiful, peaCeful and got great photos. Love this loop!

Enjoyed the drive but there were few wildflowers if that is the reason for your visit. The road is completely paved and would recommend it late in the evening to see wildlife.

This is a nice drive off the main roads, which we love. Unfortunately, we hit it at a season when there were not many bluebonnets or other wild flowers. Still enjoyed the loop - never saw a boot fence before!

If you enjoy Texas wildflowers and Hill Country scenery this drive is a must. It's especially beautiful in the Spring when the bluebonnets come out. Some years are better than others, as far as, flower display, but even in a less "flowery" year, it's still...More

I do not know why this is labeled an 'attraction'. There were a few blue bonnets to see and the boot fence, but nothing else except rocks and hills.

It’s 1-1/2 lanes with no shoulders, but people, usually, drive carefully because of it. Riding on a weekend with lots of wildflowers pretty much assures that you’ll spend a lot of time sucking exhaust though. The bigger... More
