Well maintained and easy to follow. Many trails to get your miles in and much room for walks and bike rides.
Love this trail. First time today riding it.
Loved the trail! Better to go there during weekdays. Weekends can be crowded with walkers and bikers.
Several cute parks on the way. Each of them offers unique experience. Brushy creek park offers lake, kayaking rental and wild flowers!
I enjoy walking my dogs, jogging, and mountain biking along this trail. It’s a fantastic spot for getting in those miles. I would also like to respond to the reviews saying cyclists are causing a problem: I’ve found that not to be true and that pedestrians with stray toddlers out of their parents control and dogs on extended leashes cause more issues than any biker I’ve come across. Share the trail folks!
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.
We rode the trail today. Some areas had some birds and squirrels. Nice loop around the lake and got some pictures of the ducks. Nicely paved. We are from northwest Iowa so was nice to ride our bikes in March!
I only walked the portion of the trail that is near the pool and park. I enjoyed hearing the stream running along the trail at that section but wished there was shade!
Weekends and afternoons can be busy. I suggest going during the week within normal business/school hours for the best experience.
The trail is beautiful and I love walking on it, however there is too much trash by and on the bushes. The maintenance workers cut the trees but leave the trash on the bushes and only contribute to its ugly image. Please try to maintain its beauty by cleaning it up.
Be prepared to carry your bike a lot. Lots of large boulders so not very practical for a road bike. Great for an accomplished dirt biker.
Trails are in great condition. Families though have to compete with bikers. I am a cross country biker and I was appalled by the general biking etiquette and the adrenaline rush nature and just run you off the road attitude of the on the sidewalk and off road bikers. They are dangerous and encourage that the trail needs some type of restrictions and policing. There are too many walkers and children for them to act this way at a very nice public park.
