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 to the wise: Drive it on a weekday. It can get crowded on the weekends.

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 fields of various wildflowers, you need to be careful to hit it at the right... 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.

As we drove north on Route 16, and then drove onto the loop, we were admittedly underwhelmed. It was nice, but we didn't see the reason for all the fuss. And then we came to the top of the ridge for a breathtaking view of the canyon. And I mean breathtaking. Absolutely wonderful. The wildflowers were spectacular at times, and... More

Admittedly, we were a few weeks late making this trip for the first time as the bluebonnets, while still beautiful. were past their peak. Nevertheless it was a wonderful little side trip. Several stops along the road offered breathtaking views. Surely do wish I could afford land here. What a homesite much of this would make! Dream on, fool!! Maybe... More

While on vacation we took this loop drive to view the wild flowers. It was a warm, bright sunny day; just perfect for a drive in the country. It was not crowded, on a Monday, and we took our time. There were bluebonnets on both sides of the road. There were not many good places to pull off and take... More

We drove this route on Saturday late morning and were so happy not to have to deal with traffic. We were able to stop several times for pictures and highly recommend this wonderful drive.

This is a great scenic drive, especially during Wildflower season. Some great Hill Country Vistas and lots of pretty wildflowers. Can get backed up a little during peak season on weekends, but definitely worth the drive and detour if near Fredricksburg.

I didn't do the whole loop because it was a Friday afternoon and the weekenders were out. Lots of motorcyclists and cars, and the traffic was getting heavy when I turned around and left. It's a dirt road that loops around for several miles. The bluebonnets were just beginning to bloom, and it was pretty, but I had seen so... More
