We took an evening ride on Willow city loop. We were bummed that we missed the wildflowers but saw lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery.

We knew there wouldn't be any flowers, but decided to take it anyway. Such a beautiful drive through the hill country. Lots of wildlife, quaint houses on country roads. We really enjoyed it and it was a very pleasant drive. Allow at least an hour...More

We did a fair share of driving around to do wild-flower spotting. The WC loop was very enjoyable and relaxing part of the process. Traffic was low, so it was drive at your own pace.

A local told us about the loop, and when we were too late to hike Enchanted Rock, this was Plan B. The drive is a little rustic, we were in a luxury sedan but we could have probably enjoyed it more in a Jeep or...More

My favorite backroad in Texas! The road just begs to be driven slowly, to take in the beautiful creeks, rock formations, and wildflower patches. There are some surprises along the road, which I won't spoil... but keep your eyes open!

Highly recommend the WCL to anyone who has not driven it. The wildflowers weren't extreme this year, but they were beautiful just the same. The rambling creeks, the scenic vistas and the flowers make this a must-do for any visitor to the hill country. Word...More

It's about 13 miles or so, and is touted in the spring for lots of photo ops of wildflowers. We missed it. The drive is interesting for being off the highway, narrow road, with nice back country views. But if your motive is to see...More

Nice meandering road with lots of scenery. Especially loved the goats and exotic deer herds. Tons of wild flowers. Nice rock outcrops with prickly pear cactus. Glad we took this route.

It is easier to find by 1323 as it ends at sign for "Loop". It is a two way hard surface road.
Where do you turn off of Highway 16 to get on Willow City Loop? At Farm Road 1323 or further up Highway 16 where Willow City Loop connects to 16? Some people said it was a one way 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.
I would like directions to the loop tour.

Take Hwy 16 north out of Fredericksburg towards Llano. Go about 12 miles to 1323 (sign will say Willow City) turn right and follow the loop, it will take you back to Hwy 16. I would suggest you stopping by the visitors... More
