Apache Creek Greenway Description

Apache Creek Greenway serves as an important connector through San Antonio's Westside neighborhoods. Beginning at a connection with the San Pedro Creek Greenway, the paved pathway meanders north and west away from the South Pan Am Expressway (I-35) and into community neighborhoods and parks along both sides of Apache Creek.

A popular attraction along the trail is Cassiano Park, where you'll find a swimming pool, playgrounds, picnic tables, and other amenities. On the trail's western leg, you'll also have nice views of Elmendorf Lake and Zarzamora Creek before the pathway ends in a commercial area along N. General McMullen Drive.

Note that the trail provides little tree cover, so you may wish wear sunglasses and sunscreen if heading out in sunny weather.

Parking and Trail Access

From east to west, parking is available along the trail in:

  • Amistad Park (1600 Tampico St.)
  • Escobar Park (1400 S Zarzamora St.)
  • Cassiano Park (1728 Potosi St.)
  • Elmendorf Lake Park (3700 W. Commerce St.)

Apache Creek Greenway Reviews

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.

Just completed only 3.6 miles of the trail because of construction at Potosi Street/Cassiano Park. I noticed the you can take a pedestrian bridge to the other side of the creek but the path was so narrow that I decided not to chance it. One bump of the handlebar to the right might send you down to the creek.The creek and the scenery was nothing to write home about. Better to stick to the RiverWalk trail as the nature is much better visually. The path itself is concrete and smooth with some gradual hills but nothing really to tax your energy. I'll try the west end of the trail that has a trail head on Commerce and see how that is. But so far, I would only rate it 3 stars. Hopefully, this will improve when they finish the construction
