I rode this trail a week ago from the mission trail with goal of looping around OLLU and back to add mileage to the mission trail. It was empty except homeless people under bridges, some covered with sheets, giving the experience a bit of the macabre. I turned around and won't go back until usage is up.
We always start at Hardberger Park. We ride the trail to Huebner Rd and turn around ride past the park to ride all the way to Holbrook near the National Guard. On this trail you do have several streets crossings to continue on the trail. When you get to Holbrook you are riding on the road and I normally turn around at the RR tracks. You can continue on this route to Jack White Park and continue down to SouthLions park. You are riding on the Frontage road to Jack White Park and the way back is a little tricky from Jack White and Holbrook road. That RR track is active and a stops on the Holbrook crossing then you are stuck until it moves forward. RT from Huebner Rd to the RR tracks is 32 miles. If you go all the way to South Lions & back add 18 miles to the 32
THIS TRAIL IS SOMEWHAT ISOLATED BUT VERY QUIET AND SERENE. THERE ARE TWO STEEP DECLINES AND INCLINES NEAR THE BEGINNING OF THE TRAIL THAT YOU HAVE TO WALK BECAUSE OF THE EXTREME ZIG ZAG PATTERN BUT AFTER THAT THE TRAIL IS VERY EASY. AT THE END THE LAST 3/4 MILE IS DIRT. THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO EXTEND IT A COUPLE OF MILES IN THE NEAR FUTURE. I SAW TWO PEOPLE WALKING AND THREE TRAIL STEWARDS ON MY VISIT. THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS THAT THE RIVER IS NOT EASILY VISIBLE FROM THE TRAIL. YOU HAVE TO STOP AT A REST POINT TO ENJOY THE RIVER SCENERY. I ALSO SAW A WILD PIG AND FIVE LITTLE ONES FOLLOWING MAMA. THERE IS A WARNING SIGN FOR SNAKES BUT I DID NOT SEE ANY. I DID SEE A ROADRUNNER.
Great scenery and very few road crossings. The northern end of the trail has been extended for about one mile. The signage is a bit confusing, with little branches coming off the main trail.
Thanks to the crew who laid down the new surface I can update and improve my previous rating. Beautiful new tarmac is a real pleasure to ride.
Great for the most part - nice variety of elevations and even a short technical climb. Also some good places to practice cornering skills. But the surface is cracked throughout the course and in dire need of resurfacing. Cracks are painted bright red, as they should be, by a diligient crew. Ride with caution.
We rode 9 miles on the Salado Creek Greenway today. We got on the trail at Ladybird Johnson trail. The temperature was great for January but the scenery was still kind of bleak. I'm sure the trail will be gorgeous in a few months. Can't wait to use the trail again. Wonderful trail.
We start at Rosevelt Park. It is 18 miles of rolling hills along listening to the river and seeing wildlife. A new shoot have been added - Apache Creek way to the Mission trails. It is out and back but I wouldn't ride it by myself because surrounding area it goes through. I have seen trail stewards riding it but not park police
There is the concrete trail for road bikes and dirt trails for mountain bikes. The concrete trail is 24 miles from I-10 Druary Inn to Ingram with some shoots off (out&back) to add more miles. There is a lot of dirts trails that are smooth single track and there are some rocky areas too. Level from beginner to intermidate rider.
I have been skating here 15 years. It is worth driving to this park from any area of town. There is more than enough parking! Most Cyclists and Skaters respect each other's space. Stay to the right at all times, especially if you are a new cyclist or skater (or are with your children and teaching them). When passing someone always let them know in advance you are passing by saying "ON YOUR LEFT". This is for courtesy and safety of everyone. There is a 'General Rules' sign out front that you should read before getting on the road. If you follow the rules and stay alert of all others out there, you will have a lot of fun. There is an occasional "Tour de France wanna be" cyclist (not often) who thinks the road belongs to them. Just stay to the right and you won't have to deal with them. Have fun, bring your camera, lots of water and enjoy your time there.
I enjoyed my bike ride, this is a nice trail. I got a great workout and was able to see some beautiful scenery. I felt safe, there are volunteer riders/workers, and also a group of police that came through.
I've run and biked the trail between Heubner and Ft Sam several times and really enjoy it! On long bike rides (round trip almost 35 mi if you detour through McAlister Park) it's nice to stop at MoMak's (just North of McAlister Park) for munchies and beer :) I biked the whole South segment from Lions Park to the Jack White trailhead today and it was beautiful and peaceful! I just wish there was a good way to connect the two segments of the trail around Ft Sam - that would make it 5+ stars.
