Medina River Trail

fantastic!

May, 2020 by bnstew282

Challenging and beautiful!

Medina River Trail

Challenging

May, 2020 by roxxig

This trail is NOT for beginners you’ve been warned ¿¿ do not underestimate it also some parts of the trail have a lot of gravel and cracks I’m proud of myself but I’ll never do it again!!!

Cibolo Trail

pretty trail

April, 2020 by jcowboy1969

Enjoy riding bikes on this trail. It’s short but perfect for kids. As most trails it seems safe through a nice neighborhood but I wouldn’t go by myself. However everyone I saw was by themselves. It’s a pretty trail, paved with seating a long the way. Good for older people and kids.

Old No. 9 Trail

fun trail

April, 2020 by jcowboy1969

Fun trail. Straight in the beginning and benches along the way for stopping and resting. Trail has not so great houses backing up to it that made me feel a little uncomfortable being by myself with a child so I took my husband the next time I went. It ends in a pretty place near the Library with bridges and trees so the trail is more interesting on as you approach the library. I think next time we will start our ride at the library.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

I hiked the entire SA Riverwalk with my dog!

March, 2020 by davidtearley

The Riverwalk in San Antonio is not only the most adventurous trail, but it also takes you through several different areas of society and provides education. The Riverwalk works in a fascinating way, unlike any other in the nation. You will see different types of wildlife, bikers, paddlers and some great views of downtown. Even the Missions along the Riverwalk are dog friendly. We have been to those as well - https://placesforpups.com/i-hiked-the-15-mile-san-antonio-riverwalk-with-my-dog/

Hike (or bike) the San Antonio Riverwalk, you will not be disappointed.

Schertz Parkway

This is not a trail!!!

February, 2020 by galeanaaldo

This is a sidewalk on the side of a road! I think TrailLink needs to look up what a trail is...

To me, a trail is usually a path, track or unpaved lane or road or along rivers.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

Nice enjoyable ride, fairly flat.

January, 2020 by jkhiser

We rode on Jan 6, 2020, starting at Blue Star Arts Complex, riding south for six miles. There are some gentle hills as the trail alternates from street to river level. Was uncrowded, but we were on a cool Jan Monday.

We did not see any of the homeless that other reviewers have commented on, and did not feel unsafe.

Stopped to visit one of the Missions on the ride. We wanted to go to Mission San Jose, but missed the sign, ended up visiting Mission Concepcion.

Note - need to park on street starting at Blue Star, not in the parking lot reserved for the Arts complex.

Leon Creek Greenway

updated review

August, 2019 by luv2ridemb09_tl

They have extended past 1604 and it stops for now a little past the Rim. Once finished it will connect to Salado Greenway. If the rain holds off maybe they will have it completed by the end of 2019. At the Ingram trailhead there is a trail that goes to SW Military Dr. Most of the trailheads have a port-a-potty and a water fountain.

Apache Creek Greenway

construction completed

August, 2019 by luv2ridemb09_tl

It is doesn’t have any big hills. But it is nice to have something else to ride beside the river. Only thing is the dogs along the trail do get out. Also I wouldn’t ride it alone but with a partner. There is a bridge that you have to cross over to continue on and ride around ILOL lake. It is real pretty around the lake.

Salado Creek Greenway

Extension Almost Complete

April, 2019 by spurs32

The Salado Creek trail from Huebner to 1604 is almost complete adding approximately 1.9 miles of paved trail. The Leon Creek Trail is complete to the Rim, so the realization of connecting these two beautiful trails is almost a reality.

Apache Creek Greenway

Fair only for 3.6 miles

January, 2019 by kzarz2

Just completed only 3.6 miles of the trail because of construction at Potosi Street/Cassiano Park. I noticed the you can take a pedestrian bridge to the other side of the creek but the path was so narrow that I decided not to chance it. One bump of the handlebar to the right might send you down to the creek.The creek and the scenery was nothing to write home about. Better to stick to the RiverWalk trail as the nature is much better visually. The path itself is concrete and smooth with some gradual hills but nothing really to tax your energy. I'll try the west end of the trail that has a trail head on Commerce and see how that is. But so far, I would only rate it 3 stars. Hopefully, this will improve when they finish the construction

Culebra Creek - Helotes Greenway Trail

Short ride

October, 2018 by tmbehr

Fairly easy ride, if you start at Culebra Park you will be on asphalt/dirt in the wooded area.
