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.
There were some areas that we not marked on which street to go on. But other than that, I enjoyed this trail.
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
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
Well maintained and easy to follow. Many trails to get your miles in and much room for walks and bike rides.
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.
Rode complete length today South then North, but 36 miles turned into 42 miles because I got lost and ended up on other trails.
