I like to hike this trail but find that too many bike riders think they’re entitled to ride fast and own the trail two abreast. I’ve seen really disappointing behavior, especially now that more of us are at home and looking for ways to exercise outdoors. There are dedicated bike lanes and shoulders on Parmer. Let them use those if they have to ride fast.
Finding decent trials for roller skating can be tough. I have skated the Salado Creek Greenway from the Oak Well Trail Head off Austin Hwy to McAllister and then McAllister to Phill Hardberger Park and it’s doable on roller skates. There are some hills, blind curves, and debris that you need to watch for but it’s manageable. There is lots of shade on the route and some exposed areas. Plenty of water is a must for south Texas heat and humidity. The trails are super slippery for skate wheels when there is even a tiny bit of wetness left over from rain. If you are comfortable t-stopping, plow stopping, staggering, and maybe even turning to stop on your toe stops, then you can manage this route. There are some places that I found I can practice going backwards down hills (for more control).
This trail is a great showcase of what this app is all about. The scenery is beautiful and the path is very easy to follow. There are multiple spots along the way to take a quick jump into the water. Absolutely beautiful path. Lives in Houston, and I would absolutely make the drive once a week to come out here.
There were portions of this trail that were really enjoyable on to skate. Some areas had large smooth concrete slabs allowing for some decent striding. However, there were a few portions that had smaller slabs with larger gaps that threatened to dislodge my fillings. The scenery was nice, especially near the trail head where the creek was visible. We went on a Sunday evening and it took about an hour and a half to skate. We saw a park where neighboring chickens were hanging out on the playground. The traffic was mainly pedestrian with some bicycle and a couple other skaters.
This sidewalk trail is well built but it goes nowhere it dead ends on the east side into a field and on the west side dumps you into mass construction. In a few years I think it will connect
First visit with 10 yr old son. The trail was safe and perfect for us. ¿¿¿¿ We are excited to visit it often.
Great trail for skates! It’s hard to find trails that are accessible for skates so this is perfect. Smooth trail with a few area with some dirt or twigs
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.
I love that this trail loop around a beautiful lake.
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.
