Fredericksburg: Willow City Loop

Hill Country wildflowers.

Willow City Loop is considered one of the premier springtime destinations in the state. Bursting with blues, reds, yellows and whites, this scenic 13- mile road traverses hills and creeks, offering stunning views of flowerfilled meadows and valleys. Since the land along the road is privately owned, visitors are discouraged from stopping, parking, and exploring along the way.

To get there from Fredericksburg, head north on State Route 16 for approximately 13 miles to Willow City, go east on Ranch Road 1323 for nearly 3 miles, then turn left onto Willow City Loop.
