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

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.

The views are amazing! We drove this on a dreary afternoon. The bluebonnets and other wild flowers were still spectacular!

Since moving from the base of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, it has been a challenge to become truly excited about any Texas scenery. That all changed when we sought out the somewhat difficult to find Willow City Loop--it was Colorado-level extraordinary! The wildflowers are...More

We had a beautiful drive today! The loop is a beautiful, scenic drive with a large amount of bluebonnets. We went early so it wasn't too busy. I can see how it could get congested easily as other reviewers described. All that said, the wildflowers...More

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.
