Historic Battlefield Trail

A bit confusing to follow leaving downtown area near the campus but if you follow the map it works pretty well. Flat, uncrowded trail.

Protected trail in SPI area

January, 2020 by jkhiser

This may not be the most "scenic" trail, but the scenery does match the area. Well protected & separated from traffic. One single overpass to cross at north end, otherwise totally flat.

Southmost Nature Trail

Nice concrete paths

March, 2019 by grootscoop

My husband and I took our three kids on this path on our online skates. We parked at the school. The start of the trail was just around the corner. We were a bit nervous skating by the busy street with the kids to get to the trail. We were impressed with the smooth concrete path — perfect for skating! The path itself followed a canal (not exactly scenic, but we did see a few water birds). The first part of the trail went behind a residential area. The houses had fenced yards, but many of them had angry barking dogs. The trail crossed the canal with a nice bridge, then crossed a busy street. Crossing the street on skates with the kids wasn’t ideal, but I can imagine it would be fine for pedestrians. The rest of the trail was very nice. It was farther away from the residential area and there were several nice covered picnic areas. We skated happily to the end of the trail where it ended at another busy street. We turned around and skated back to our car. There wasn’t much shade along the trail. We were there between 5 pm and 6 pm. There were about a dozen others enjoying the trail. Thank you!

Historic Battlefield Trail

Not very scenic

February, 2018 by themnmoores

We just returned from a trip the South Padre Island this February. One windy day we ventured into Brownsville to ride this trail as it was supposed to be warmer and less windy in Brownsville that day. Warmer yes, less windy no. We started in town and rode towards the battle field into a 20-30 MPH wind. Not much for wind protection on this trail. After being a bit convoluted getting through the first couple of miles the trail basically runs through the housing areas of Brownsville on a greenway corridor. There is some water, but overall not a very scenic ride. Glad we went in to ride it but we would not take the couple of hour drive time from South Padre Island in the future. BTW, I am not rating the trail based on the wind that day as those things happen and are not the trails fault.
