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.
Thank you for existing!!
I absolutely LOVE this park! It's huge and there's a lot of space. It's definitely one of my favorite parks
I absolutely LOVE this park. It's huge and open and VERY relaxing for me!
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.
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.
I roller skate this trail religiously!! it’s gorgeous!!..although I would love to find other trails to skate just for a little switch up.. This one always seems to be the best one ¿¿ The workers are so nice and everything is so beautifully kept! Everyone is very friendly on the trails as well.
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.
Love the spurs heading off the main paved path to get a little off-roading adventure. Plenty of shade and well marked.
The Salado Creek Greenway is beautifully scenic as it winds through the woods. From the birds chirping to the occasional deer, it is a peaceful place to connect with nature. And coming from Philadelphia (the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection) where we have Fairmount Park, the people of San Antonio are friendly, warm and welcoming, making this a must-visit space if you want to walk, skate, bike and/or exercise in your own way.
This is a great multi use trail. We could not ride the segment that starts at The Rim and heads South. The creek ran over the pathway in a few spots due to recent rainfall. We could ride through a few inches but had to turn around when it was a foot or more. Will be back, but it wouldn’t hurt for trail maintenance crew to post signage indicating poor trail conditions. It looks like the trail is expanding North of The Rim.
This was absolutely a gorgeous urban trail. I rented the bikes and did the whole thing. It’s a great workout. Small waterfalls, thousands of sunflowers and plenty of water stops. This is a must Do. It’s extremely hot though. Go prepared
