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.
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.
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.
We tried taking this trail to Zilker but it is not bikable unless with a mountain bike.
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
Fairly easy ride, if you start at Culebra Park you will be on asphalt/dirt in the wooded area.
HA! So I just deleted this long, detailed, glowing review of this excellent trail, then thought, "what the heck am I doing!!". Stay away and leave this gem to the locals that live on or nearby the trail, like myself.
But if you promise to come only once or twice to check it out, then bring your dog on a leash or your bicycle (road or mountain) or just your walking shoes...you will not be disappointed. It is exceedingly safe with daily Trail Stewards on bikes and the occasional quad runner with a park police officer, astonishingly beautiful, unexpectedly quiet, and you are guaranteed to come away thinking...wow, this was much, much better than I ever expected! Not perfect, but definitely worth a visit.
I'll leave it at that.
It was great ride to do from ljb spot. I went left for about 5 miles and then back past along the boardwalk for another 7 miles. It was awesome workout.
I grew up in this area I grew up fishing on the river, my wife and I take our three dogs they love the hike so do we
did it so many times as a child ,now i only get to get there once a year . still is the best trail in the world . or maybe its just taking me back to beautiful time in memory i hope everyone visiting there would have the feelings i go through when just smelling the seance of this area.i love it, diffenetly one of the "must-see" places in the world at least once before you go ;)
I live in Houston and I've heard a lot of great reviews about this trail. Finally me & my wife drove almost 6 hours round trip and rode this trail on 10/21/2017 and here is my thought about this trail.
1. The length of the trail is great and same as the scenery.
2. The best part of the trail is the boardwalk and the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge.
3. My wife complains about the why the trail is not paved, it was too dusty.
4. SIGNS! The trail need a lot of signs especially the east end of the lake (Longhorn Dam & Holly St.). We went over to the east side of the S Pleasant Valley Rd. because there was no sigh to give us the right direction and the trail became almost invisible at the baseball field at Riverview St.
5. MAPS! Lacking of the "You Are Here" Maps, we could not get a good idea of which part of the trail we were at.
This could be a 5-star trail if there are enough signs & maps, please improve...
Great trail BUT please be careful! A couple of bikers were assaulted this morning by a man on a mountain bike. He was acting bizarrely they said. Please be aware of what is going on around you!
