This is about 13-16 mile drive close to Fredericksburg. Definitely worth the time. Great to do in the spring. I did not see the speed limit posted but everybody was going very slow, so you may want to allow at least 30 minutes, but more like 45-60 to take it in. We were told that all the land on both...

We drove the loop on 3/14/16. Several nice vistas of the hill country along this narrow 2 lane ranch road but not many places to pull off and take photos etc. The road is a little rough in a few spots and many cattle guards to cross. It is camera worthy with several creek crossings but we were looking for... More

We made the drive yesterday. Even in misty rain, it was beautiful. The bluebonnets are starting to peak and bloom. Seriously one of the most beautiful drives ever.

I've taken visitors on the loop to see wildflowers in good years and it can be breathtaking. Make sure you have someone else in the car with a fast shutter on the camera because there are signs every so often warning you not to stop. This is a drive through attraction only. If you want to stop and get a... More

You need to do this bike ride if you have never done it. It is scenic with low car traffic. Be sure to bring enough water.

Driving the hill country for our anniversary (year 9 is willow or pottery) so we chose to venture to Willow City. There is nothing to do but the old school is very cute and well maintained!

Wow, absolutely beautiful! The Loop was about 13 miles long and 15ish minutes out of town. Very peaceful and neat to see. Can't wait to come back in the spring when the flowers are blooming!

The "Loop" is about 10 miles north of Fredericksburg. It is about 8-10 miles long and is paved. There are numerous wet weather crossings on the road so if there has been a heavy rain the road may not be passable. Great chance o see everything from whitetail deer to wild turkeys to road runners.

After taking the fantastic drive past Enchanted Rock, we made the turn back toward Fredericksburg and took a slow left onto the Loop. Respecting that we were on private property, we drove slowly on the narrow roads, and soon spotted a fox, then a mother deer and her doe. Winding through the ranches, inter cut by streams and cement bridges,... More
