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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
