The beauty of the San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path is matched only by its utility. The 30-mile trail winds along both sides of the river, connecting parks, schools, workplaces, shopping, restaurants, and everything a resident or visitor needs.
The trail runs from Brackenridge Park (which houses the San Antonio Zoo) on the north end of town to Mission Park on San Antonio’s southern end. South of Brackenridge, past I-35, you can reach the San Antonio Museum of Art, as well as the Tobin Center for Performing Arts.
Farther south, past downtown and I-10, the pathway continues through Concepcion Park. This is where city dwellers come out to play. You’ll find athletic fields, a playground, fitness stations, and a pool here. Restrooms, drinking fountains, and picnic tables are also available in the park.
A highlight of the journey can be found at its southern end, as the trail winds through San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. This unique attraction provides the opportunity to learn about several Spanish frontier missions, including Mission Espada, the oldest mission in Texas dating back to 1690.
On the trail’s northern end, parking is readily available in Brackenridge Park (3700 N. St. Mary's). Mid-trail, parking is available in Concepcion Park (600 E. Theo). On the south end of the trail, you can find parking in Mission County Park (1611 NE Loop 410), Espada Park (1750 S E Military), and San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.
