Wells Branch Hike and Bike Trail

A beautiful, hidden gem

November, 2021 by jeremyandvonnie

I am surprised how many people still don’t know about this trail, but then again maybe that’s a good thing. It is clean, well-maintained, and quite peaceful. The trail wanders through the neighborhood, around Mills Pond, through the main parks areas, along a disc golf course, and it follows a creek most of the way with multiple bridges. I recommend this trail to everyone and they are always pleasantly surprised by how great it is.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

North End Review

November, 2021 by katspawcreative

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.

THE PERFECT URBAN TRAIL EXPERIENCE

October, 2021 by thejake91739

Wow! What a pleasure it was to experience this awesome trail on a bike!

We did a clockwise loop of the lake, about 10.5 miles, on an overcast, horribly humid, early Sunday morning in October, but the weather certainly did not discourage us or keep other active Austinites off the trail! I have never seen so many people on a trail before, and we were easily outnumbered by walkers and joggers by a ratio of at least 50:1. There had to be thousands on that busy, crowded hike and bike trail, but everyone was so Austin cool, chill, and polite that nary a negative word was expressed (except by the irate homeless guy who yelled something unintelligible at me when he felt I invaded his space). Be that as it may, for these two Southern Californians the trail and its users gave off a beach city sort of vibe such as in San Diego. Everyone was so fit, healthy-looking, and laid back.

Speaking of homeless: When we first pulled up to park and set up our bikes at Rendon Park I was concerned about all of the homeless who had pitched tents and staked out their own bit of real estate, but my concerns were allayed when I saw the hundreds of parked cars and joggers utilizing the trail. With so many using the trail it was obviously safe for a couple of senior citizen California tourists! (Later in the day my nephew, an Austin resident, told me the homeless had pretty much taken over Lady Bird Park, and it was just a few weeks prior that the citizens and the city got fed up and finally had them relocated; at least, most of them.)

The trail truly is totally magnificent! The views of the lake, trees, and modern downtown skyline from the awesome boardwalk are absolutely spectacular and are so photo-op worthy. The path, which is mostly hard packed dirt, is not an issue for bicyclists and most likely appreciated by the runners. Whether you live in the Austin area or just visiting, this is a can't miss trail!

Nature Wonderland

This trail is like getting lost in Mother Natures wonderland. Trails are clearly marked. Very safe and peaceful so far.

Salado Creek Greenway

Not Great for Walkers

September, 2021 by gvravel

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.

Southern Walnut Creek Trail

Great trail!

September, 2021 by geigreg

Very pleased to have this trail close to home. Very scenic and well-designed. We went on a Saturday and while it was popular it wasn't packed. You do have to be aware of the hardcore spandex crowd who are traveling at high speeds. But otherwise this is one of the best trails in Austin.

Shoal Creek Trail

Wonderful trail

August, 2021 by fbp4wwjbrt

Great waking/running trail…has a nice variety to it with dirt paths, sidewalks, some on leash dog spots and some off leash dogs spots, woods, and city. The trail is by the water most of the way with sites such as a large art piece, little kid dirt bike area, skateboard park, and Pease park. On Sept. 29, 2021 part of the trail was closed, put you can easily walk around the closed section and continue the trail.the trail.

Salado Creek Greenway

A beautiful greenway

August, 2021 by katspawcreative

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.

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
