Riverwalk and bike trail

April, 2022 by lasirvent

Riverwalk and bike trail was amazing. The views and the trail were impeccable. What a gorgeous place

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

3 FEET WIDE

April, 2022 by gatheringtree

The south end toward the missions is wide. The downtown path starting from Lexington to Josephine is very narrow. Pedestrians have to step off the sidewalk in many places to let you by. Many were justifiably annoyed. There is zero trail signage. So you have to know the area well to know where to get off. Beautiful riverwalk, and though bikes are permitted it was wishful thinking. You cannot ride there without very slowing to a walk behind a string of pedestrians.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

Exceptional trail south of downtown

April, 2022 by bruceamiller@comcast.net

An out-of-town visitor who found the Riverwalk Trail delightful. As others note, the downtown section is narrow and can be crowded. Recommend starting a ride a mile south of town at the Blue Star complex (parking is available). The 9 miles south from there are on pristine concrete, wide enough to easily pass walkers and runners. The trail follows the San Antonio River, occasionally crossing it. Gentle ups and downs. Signage and maps are frequent, as are historical signs. Fun seeing cormorants, geese and ducks on the river.
San Antonio has four missions close to the path going south. Unlike the California missions, these are within a few miles of each other. The National Park Service maintains the grounds. The missions still hold church services and are different from each other. Highly recommend detouring to at least one if you have time.
Bring hydration. There is no shade on the trail itself going south, and convenience stores are few and far. There are frequent picnic tables and shelters, and a few bathrooms.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

North End Review

November, 2021 by katspawcreative

After riding the Salado Creek trail (at least the portion that was open-haven’t been back since the Boardwalk was closed at Lady Bird Johnson), I started riding the San Antonio. For starters, finding parking is easy in Brakenridge Park. Sunday mornings are great. Between the families cooking out, the custom cars and motorcycles hanging out and overall fun atmosphere, it’s a great place to start your ride. It parallels Broadway running south and it’s a nice 2+ mile ride down to the Pearl-you WANT to go there and enjoy the vendors behind Hotel Emma. From there, you can continue your ride south to the Riverwalk, but things get tight for cyclists and pedestrians. By the time you get to the stone crossover bridge, it’s impossible to ride. TIP: do not cross over the bridge and try to ride back going north-it’s tight and there are several spots where there are stair steps up and down. You have to get off your bike to navigate. Turn around and ride back. Otherwise, it’s a nice easy ride, especially in and around Brakenridge Park.

THE PERFECT URBAN TRAIL EXPERIENCE

October, 2021 by thejake91739

Wow! What a pleasure it was to experience this awesome trail on a bike!

We did a clockwise loop of the lake, about 10.5 miles, on an overcast, horribly humid, early Sunday morning in October, but the weather certainly did not discourage us or keep other active Austinites off the trail! I have never seen so many people on a trail before, and we were easily outnumbered by walkers and joggers by a ratio of at least 50:1. There had to be thousands on that busy, crowded hike and bike trail, but everyone was so Austin cool, chill, and polite that nary a negative word was expressed (except by the irate homeless guy who yelled something unintelligible at me when he felt I invaded his space). Be that as it may, for these two Southern Californians the trail and its users gave off a beach city sort of vibe such as in San Diego. Everyone was so fit, healthy-looking, and laid back.

Speaking of homeless: When we first pulled up to park and set up our bikes at Rendon Park I was concerned about all of the homeless who had pitched tents and staked out their own bit of real estate, but my concerns were allayed when I saw the hundreds of parked cars and joggers utilizing the trail. With so many using the trail it was obviously safe for a couple of senior citizen California tourists! (Later in the day my nephew, an Austin resident, told me the homeless had pretty much taken over Lady Bird Park, and it was just a few weeks prior that the citizens and the city got fed up and finally had them relocated; at least, most of them.)

The trail truly is totally magnificent! The views of the lake, trees, and modern downtown skyline from the awesome boardwalk are absolutely spectacular and are so photo-op worthy. The path, which is mostly hard packed dirt, is not an issue for bicyclists and most likely appreciated by the runners. Whether you live in the Austin area or just visiting, this is a can't miss trail!

Salado Creek Greenway

Not Great for Walkers

September, 2021 by gvravel

I spent today walking about 4 miles of this path starting at Phil Hardberger Park. What I found was that walkers are pretty much taking their lives into their own hands because of some of the bicyclists. The vast majority of bicyclists do seem to be out for a leisurely ride but you have a handful that treat it as some sort of racing track. When I got back to where I had started there was even a bicyclist turning around a bend in the path doing 30mpg. A lady in back of me yelled out, "Hey, slow down!" A friend who was with her said that they (some bicyclists) do this all the time. I think I'll stick with Phil Hardberger Park.

Southern Walnut Creek Trail

Great trail!

September, 2021 by geigreg

Very pleased to have this trail close to home. Very scenic and well-designed. We went on a Saturday and while it was popular it wasn't packed. You do have to be aware of the hardcore spandex crowd who are traveling at high speeds. But otherwise this is one of the best trails in Austin.
