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.

Great trail. Difficult to find trailhead for parking. Google Drury Inn near six flags in San Antonio to find the 1604 loop trail head near Valero headquarters. This is our first time to San Antonio so struggling with the access/frontage roads and directions. ...read more
