Leon Creek Greenway

Can be flooded in places

July, 2021 by laurie92

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.

Walnut Springs Trail

the trail was great, perfect for parents pushing strollers or pulling wagons with young kids.

July, 2021 by localmomtx

There were some areas that we not marked on which street to go on. But other than that, I enjoyed this trail.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

must do!

June, 2021 by harrisonc

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

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

Great trail

June, 2021 by mscarolpool

Our first time on this trail and boy was I impressed! Wide paved surfaces, beautiful parks along the way, several with bathrooms. We stayed at the Inn on the Riverwalk and the trail was right at our back door. Roland the owner let us keep our bikes in our room as I was nervous about leaving them on the bike rack in a strange city. We went south for about 12 miles and then back. You can’t ride north thru the Riverwalk where turista are as it gets narrow and crowdedand take one of the streets thru down town past the Alamo that have bike lanes.but you can go to the steet

Leon Creek Greenway

Nice and well maintained

April, 2021 by kvn0203

Well maintained and easy to follow. Many trails to get your miles in and much room for walks and bike rides.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

Nice Trail

April, 2021 by julia.m.maldonado

Nice paved trail. Parked at San Juan Mission, rode south to Mission De la Espada and started ride up north. Rode all the way to Downtown San Antonio and turned back where option was only street. Got a about 24 miles round trip. Nice ride along River.

Leon Creek Greenway

Great signage poor in places

March, 2021 by amcd1403

Rode complete length today South then North, but 36 miles turned into 42 miles because I got lost and ended up on other trails.

Cathedral Rock Connector Trail

Texas mountain trail

March, 2021 by joshsanguineti

I’m from Colorado so I know what a mountain biking trail is supposed to look like. And the dirt trails that branch off the main road, are steep, fast, and have lots of JUMPS!!!

Salado Creek Greenway

We rode the trail today. Some areas had some birds and squirrels. Nice loop around the lake and got some pictures of the ducks. Nicely paved. We are from northwest Iowa so was nice to ride our bikes in March!

Salado Creek Greenway

I love it’s beautiful but too much trash

January, 2021 by marianewton

The trail is beautiful and I love walking on it, however there is too much trash by and on the bushes. The maintenance workers cut the trees but leave the trash on the bushes and only contribute to its ugly image. Please try to maintain its beauty by cleaning it up.

County Line Memorial Trail

County Line Memorial Hike and Bike trail

January, 2021 by sfchollon

Starts at FM 725 to FM 1044 in New Braunfels, TX. I recommend starting at Fischer Park, off of County Line Road. Trail is paved and wide. Crossings have traffic warning lights. Parking is available at the FM1044 trailhead or at Fischer Park. Safe and well maintained.

Cathedral Rock Connector Trail

Clean Trails

January, 2021 by kriskailimai

The trail begins as a sidewinding uphill challenge that may require lower gears and steady control at low speeds. The trails were free of debris and not crowded. The park at Misty Way is popular and so is the port-a-Jon.
