The Medina River Trail is a natural gem in south San Antonio. As it parallels the river, the pathway winds through the lush woodlands of the Medina River Natural Area. Along the way, you can enjoy beautiful views of the waterway, glimpse the abundant wildlife in the area and gaze in awe at the park's towering cypress, pecan and oak trees. The trail varies from easy to moderate intensity with slopes up to 8.3 percent in two locations.
Parking and Trail Access
Parking and a trailhead is available at the Medina River Natural Area off Highway 16, south of Loop 410 and north of the Medina River. This northside entrance to the park also offers a large covered pavilion and restrooms.
