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.

Four couples on motorcycles - we took the Willow City Loop for some change of scenery. Very peaceful, scenic ride through open ranges. We did have to stop at one point for a herd of stubborn cattle but that made the ride all the more...More

We heard everywhere that the Willow City Loop was disappointing this year for wildflowers.However, there were enough white poppies to keep us happy even if the bluebonnets were scarce. The boot fence was entertaining and the general area scenic.

Traveled the first week of April hoping to see wildflowers, but there wasn't much to see. The first two weeks of April are supposed to be the peak season, but it may be a little early. There were very few flowers in bloom. I understand...More

We are atypical tourists who like to go off the beaten path to see where the real people live. We took the Willow City Loop in late March when the bluebonnets were just starting to bloom. It was lovely, and afforded many idyllic sights and...More

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
