Leon Creek Greenway is a tranquil oasis through western San Antonio. Part of the city's Howard W. Peak Greenway Trails system, the main pathway begins in Eisenhower Park, where a new segment of trail finished in 2021 allows trail users to connect with the Salado Creek Greenway on the city's east side. The Leon Creek Greenway winds its way south for 20 miles along its namesake creek. The path is fairly flat with some gentle slopes and is dotted with small ponds, including Earl Scott Pond near its northern end, which is home to a variety of birds and wildlife.
The trail runs adjacent to many parks, including O.P. Schnabel Park, known for its natural beauty, steep cliffs, and many amenities, including athletic fields, picnic tables, nature trails, and a YMCA facility. Farther south, a disconnected 2.6-mile section of the trail runs through Rodriguez County Park and Levi Strauss Park, while another separate section in Pearsall Park is 1.5 miles.
There are several places to park along the trail:
- Eisenhower Park (19399 NW Military Highway)
- Rohde Park (11777 Spring Rain)
- Leon Vista Trailhead (intersection of Whitby Road and Rochelle Street)
- VIA Ingram Transit Center (3215 N. Western Drive); bus access is also available here
- Rodriguez County Park (41623 Jerome Road)
- Levi Strauss Park (6100 Old Highway 90 W.)
- Pearsall Park (4700 Old Pearsall Road)
