The Hill Country’s Bluebonnet Trail – Fredericksburg, Mason, & Llano.

Over the years, I’ve spent many hours enjoying the Texas Hill Country backroads and searching for wildflowers!  Here are some of my favorite roads.

Fredericksburg to Doss, county roads around Doss, then Hwy 783 to Hwy 87 & Mason.
– Hwy 87 from Fredericksburg to Mason.  Esp closer to Mason County, often produces colorful blooms.
– Hwy 16N from Fredericksburg north, Enchanted Rock area, Willow City Loop, then north to Llano, and San Saba.
– Wild Seed Farm offers plentiful planted flowers, as well as shopping.
– LBJ Park near Stonewall Tx


MASON (Mason County):

“Mason Loop” – From Mason take RR 386, turn right on FM 2618, turn right on RR 1900, to Hwy 29 intersection. Choose right to return to Mason or left to Llano.
