We took this drive (did the full loop/took about 45 minutes even with some short stops for photos) Saturday at 2 pm. We expected worse traffic. The full loop is worth doing. The fence with boots at one end of the loop is cute, the...More

Go early in the morning, because traffic gets heavy later in the day. At times, it was bumper to bumper. The wildflowers were gorgeous though.

I love this local legend for viewing the most lovely wildflowers in the state of TX. What I don't like is the multitude of no trespassing/ posted and other unfriendly notices. And yes I understand why they do this to try to keep ignorant tourists...More

This was a 10 out of 5 stars. It far exceeded our hopes for the wildflower tour. Mile after mile of flowers - plenty of places to pull over and take photos. It is a do not miss during the season.

A good place to ride the bike around. The flowers are grand & kind of a view of the past. Don't forget the camera. Wasn't very busy

Good place to stop and see Wildflowers March through April. The boots on the fence posts are from a Texas Cowboy tradition of putting a boot on the post every time you broke a horse. Nowadays the boots are put up by passing bicyclists, There...More

We drove the loop on Mar 25 and the bluebonnets and paintbrushes had to be at about peak. The roadsides along Hwy 16 from Fredericksburg to Llano may have had bigger swaths of flowers, but they were just that - roadsides along a highway. This...More

It is worth the drive and directions are easy to follow. You get off the main highways and lots of opportunities to stop for pictures without cars speeding by.

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.
