If you’re seeking a place to hike or climb some serious rock faces, look no further than Enchanted Rock. Be prepared to bring plenty of water! Take CR16 southbound from Llano for about 15 miles and then hop on 965 into the state park. You will see the giant rock looming ahead in your windshield, along with wildflowers on both sides of the road in March-April.
WILLOW CITY LOOP
As you’re leaving Enchanted Rock, take CR16 about 5 miles until you see Willow City Loop. The whole trail is about 15 miles and totally worth the drive! It’s also very popular with motorcyclists. You will pass cattle grazing on the road side. The areas aren’t fenced in and they sometimes stroll carelessly across the road. This truly is one of the most scenic drives to take during your Polaris Slingshot Rental, especially during Bluebonnet season. Highly recommend on your list of Things To Do In Fredericksburg!
Venture out along the Gruene-Fredericksburg-Bandera Loop for pastoral views of farmland, ponds and rivers and orchards. This 236-mile route is popular with motorcyclists, and history buffs will enjoy the Gruene Historic District, where German farmers settled in the mid-1840s. Many of the early homes and buildings have been restored, and you can still go honky-tonking at the Gruene Dance Hall, built in 1878.
