San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

I hiked the entire SA Riverwalk with my dog!

March, 2020 by davidtearley

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.

Schertz Parkway

This is not a trail!!!

February, 2020 by galeanaaldo

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.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

Nice enjoyable ride, fairly flat.

January, 2020 by jkhiser

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.

Great trail to explore connections to more rigorous trails. Safe for beginning walkers.

Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail

great trail that is a solid distance.

December, 2019 by texas0341

My son and I (14 yr old) went to ride this trail. One of the things I love most about it, is that its a huge loop. So you park and start to ride and 14.5 miles later your back where you started. There are ways to shorten the ride if you don’t want to go the distance but I personally feel the distance is perfect. The scenery is amazing as the entire ride circles lady bird lake. There is some fun down hill portions to gain some speed and some good climbs to feel the burn in your legs but overall it’s a pretty straight forward trail that isn’t technical at all. I did have to check the map a few time to make sure I was staying on the right path but it wasn’t hard at all to navigate. Highly recommend!

Shoal Creek Trail

Nice walk by the water

November, 2019 by lettieprell

This is a great city trail, that passes through Pease Park, where the trail braids, enabling one to cross back and forth in several places over the river, either on rocks or by bridge. Depending on the route you choose portions of the trail are dirt, gravel or concrete. We came out on a Sunday morning, and found bikes, people and dogs all enjoying the tree-lined space.

Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Courtesy

September, 2019 by mark.wilson_tl

I walk 5 miles on Brushy Creek Trail almost every Sunday. Although most bike riders ride safely, I see too many who do not. Today I witnessed an almost-tragic collision between an adult rider and a one year old child. Adding insult to potentially fatal injury, the rider yelled "Courtesy!" as he sped by. The child tottered at the very edge of the trail and the biker missed him by no more than a foot. The child's parents were also at the edge of the trail. The biker behaved as if the child and his parents should have thrown themselves out of the way, which I assure you could not have happened because the rider appeared suddenly and was riding too fast for them to react. I was walking in the opposite direction with my wife and a friend and the biker rode between us and the family as we passed one another.

The rider, an adult man who should know better, was gone in seconds and there is probably no hope of changing his attitude so he remains dangerous. The trail is posted with a few signs informing bikers to defer to pedestrians, but some riders act as though the Trail is primarily for bikers and everyone else is in their way.

What can be done? Larger and more explicit signs? Speed bumps? I wish I knew. Have there been serious collisions on the Trail?

I love walking Brushy Creek Trail, the creek, the trees, the meadows, the deer. It can be very relaxing, but incidents like this today make me furious.

Leon Creek Greenway

updated review

August, 2019 by luv2ridemb09_tl

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.

Apache Creek Greenway

construction completed

August, 2019 by luv2ridemb09_tl

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.

Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Awesome scenic trail for road cycling!

July, 2019 by matthewmiller951

This trail system is one of the FEW trails available in the area that's mostly paved for road bike riders! So, anyone walking on this trail should get used to bikers as well. Also, anyone riding a road bike on this trail without a doubt is mindful of pedestrians at all times, cyclists just want a safe place to ride without a 5,000 lb SUV next to them, this is one of the few trails that offer this security. Once they link the EAST and West sections its going to be the finest bicycle trail around.

Salado Creek Greenway

Extension Almost Complete

April, 2019 by spurs32

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.
