Mission Reach Description

The trail starts in downtown King William area and meanders south to the historic Missions area, ending at Mission Espada, the oldest mission in Texas, built in 1690. The route follows the San Antonio River, which has been beautifully improved in recent years. The San Antonio Missions are both a National Historic Site and a UNESCO World Heritage site, a collection of five Spanish colonial missions that tell of the history of cultural exchange between the indigenous peoples, missionaries, and colonizers. The trail is a good way to view the Missions and experience the trail the pioneers made centuries ago. The pathway is mostly concrete with some asphalt, and there are only one or two major crossings, making it safe and accessible for all, including seniors. Moderately used and rarely crowded, this is a great way to enjoy the outdoors in San Antonio.

Parking and Trail Access

The easiest place to park for access is Mission San Jose  (6701 San José Drive) which is approximately midway along the Mission Reach;  you can then join the trail and walk or ride north or south from there. You could also park at Roosevelt Park (330 Roosevelt), which is closer to downtown.
