Currey Creek Trail

Nice

May, 2024 by pxr9rvxw7k

Nice short cemented trail with lots of wildflowers in early May.

Leon Creek Greenway

Great Trail

April, 2024 by pfahlsing

Very nice trail and hard to believe you are in a city. Wooded with lots of shade.

Leon Creek Greenway

Until you get near Eisenhower Park, this is a mostly flat trail. Just before the park there's one really big hill with switchbacks that's a little rough but not the worst we've seen. Solid ride...we did almost 40 round trip

Medina River Greenway

We were only partially prepared for the switchbacks. Wow...those were challenging/scary and yes I probably should have walked them as is posted. 30 of the lost challenging miles ever.

Cibolo Trail

Nice but Construction

Feb 2024 the center of the trail under construction. Hard to get around but possible. Lots of restaurant close to trail.

Veloway Trail

My own neighborhood Veloway!!!!!

July, 2023 by allbizns

I just moved back to my hometown of Austin, and live in a nice, quiet, safe, gated neighborhood, in Circle C Ranch. I decided to get back into road cycling, so I bought an amazing bike, and started looking for safe places to ride. To my immense shock and pleasure, I found that the Veloway was five minutes away.

This park is unique in the US. So, what a blessing. It is about 3.6 miles, very clean, safe, well kept, with no hikers, or cars. I love it, and spend an hour or so, doing laps, a few times a week, to train for long group (intermediate) rides. It is a tough course, and I love it.

I wish these were all over our country, as I have homes, and business interests, throughout the country…

Leon Creek Greenway

First time on this trail

July, 2023 by jgomez7407

My first time on this trail it was amazing very clean and smooth path. I would like to meet some regular rides to join me I am not an elite rider but I do enjoy a nice enjoyable ride.

Salado Creek Greenway

There are a number of dangerous hills and turns throughout the trail. Perhaps a more experienced Rollerblade enthusiast could manage, however, not without a spotter.

Alazan Creek Greenway Trail

Trash is an eyesore

December, 2022 by arlene.deardorff

The trail itself is wide and maintained and well marked. We started at Woodlawn Lake, not part of the trail, and went around on the paved path. Then we biked Alazon Creek and there were nice looking walls with different colors. The surrounding areas had lots of trash which wasn’t pleasant to look at. San Antonio does an amazing job with the Mission Trail and it would be nice if the efforts could be extended to Alazon.

Apache Creek Greenway

Good trail

December, 2022 by arlene.deardorff

The trail was well maintained and easy to ride on a wide path. We biked just past Elmendorf Lake Park and turned around. Once you go past the lake there is a lot of trash in the surrounding creek area. It was an eyesore but if you go just to the end of the lake, the environment is pleasing to the eye.

Schertz Parkway

This is a sidewalk along a busy street with intersections and crosswalk signals. I prefer nature. No nature here, but there are lots of people walking so may feel safer for those that may like the activity level around them.
