Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

Leon Creek Greenway is a tranquil oasis through western San Antonio. The main pathway begins at Loop 1604 and winds its way south for 13 miles along the creek. It’s fairly flat with some gentle slopes and is dotted with small ponds, including Earl Scott Pond near its northern end, which is home to a variety of birds and wildlife.

The trail runs adjacent to many parks, including O.P. Schnabel Park, known for its natural beauty, steep cliffs, and many amenities, including athletic fields, picnic tables, nature trails, and a YMCA facility. Farther south, a 2.6-mile section of the trail runs through Rodriguez County Park and Levi Strauss Park, while another section in Pearsall Park is 1.5 miles.

A great walk

The walk/run was relaxing and very cool this evening. I wish it had the GPS coordinates to plan a mileage gap for each segment. I hope they are working on it. You are very lucky to have trails you can walk, jog or ride a bicycle. read more
