Schertz Parkway

This is a sidewalk along a busy street with intersections and crosswalk signals. I prefer nature. No nature here, but there are lots of people walking so may feel safer for those that may like the activity level around them.

County Line Memorial Trail

Don't expect nature

October, 2022 by paulaleannpope

The concrete path is nice. Most people won't be able to do the exercises at the stations as instructed, so do your own thing. Don't expect nature. You're walking along an open field between housing areas, right behind people's privacy fences. There was one spot where 3 panels were erected showing plants and animals, but none of that was to be seen because the area was mown down to the dirt. I don't believe I would classify this as a trail so much as simply a walkway between housing areas.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

Brutal in the heat but highly recommend!

June, 2022 by longellob

We started our trip at Concepcion Park and traveled south to Mission Espada then turned back north. We were experiencing a heat wave all over the country during our stay in San Antonio so needless to say the temps were above 100 degrees and very little to none of this stretch of the trail is shaded. It was a little difficult to navigate as you can see by the trail map there are areas where you connect to small trails that either make a big circle back to the Riverwalk or abruptly end! My favorite stop was at the Tree of Life. We didn't even attempt to ride through downtown. We took a separate trip to walk the downtown section which was beautiful and as we were walking we found the northern part of the trail which was less populated by walkers making biking a bit easier. We hope to go back again, maybe when the temps are a little lower!

3 FEET WIDE

April, 2022 by gatheringtree

The south end toward the missions is wide. The downtown path starting from Lexington to Josephine is very narrow. Pedestrians have to step off the sidewalk in many places to let you by. Many were justifiably annoyed. There is zero trail signage. So you have to know the area well to know where to get off. Beautiful riverwalk, and though bikes are permitted it was wishful thinking. You cannot ride there without very slowing to a walk behind a string of pedestrians.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

Exceptional trail south of downtown

April, 2022 by bruceamiller@comcast.net

An out-of-town visitor who found the Riverwalk Trail delightful. As others note, the downtown section is narrow and can be crowded. Recommend starting a ride a mile south of town at the Blue Star complex (parking is available). The 9 miles south from there are on pristine concrete, wide enough to easily pass walkers and runners. The trail follows the San Antonio River, occasionally crossing it. Gentle ups and downs. Signage and maps are frequent, as are historical signs. Fun seeing cormorants, geese and ducks on the river.
San Antonio has four missions close to the path going south. Unlike the California missions, these are within a few miles of each other. The National Park Service maintains the grounds. The missions still hold church services and are different from each other. Highly recommend detouring to at least one if you have time.
Bring hydration. There is no shade on the trail itself going south, and convenience stores are few and far. There are frequent picnic tables and shelters, and a few bathrooms.

North End Review

November, 2021 by katspawcreative

After riding the Salado Creek trail (at least the portion that was open-haven’t been back since the Boardwalk was closed at Lady Bird Johnson), I started riding the San Antonio. For starters, finding parking is easy in Brakenridge Park. Sunday mornings are great. Between the families cooking out, the custom cars and motorcycles hanging out and overall fun atmosphere, it’s a great place to start your ride. It parallels Broadway running south and it’s a nice 2+ mile ride down to the Pearl-you WANT to go there and enjoy the vendors behind Hotel Emma. From there, you can continue your ride south to the Riverwalk, but things get tight for cyclists and pedestrians. By the time you get to the stone crossover bridge, it’s impossible to ride. TIP: do not cross over the bridge and try to ride back going north-it’s tight and there are several spots where there are stair steps up and down. You have to get off your bike to navigate. Turn around and ride back. Otherwise, it’s a nice easy ride, especially in and around Brakenridge Park.

Love this Nature Trail

October, 2021 by candicelynnlouise

I roller skate this trail religiously!! it’s gorgeous!!..although I would love to find other trails to skate just for a little switch up.. This one always seems to be the best one ¿¿ The workers are so nice and everything is so beautifully kept! Everyone is very friendly on the trails as well.

Salado Creek Greenway

Not Great for Walkers

September, 2021 by gvravel

I spent today walking about 4 miles of this path starting at Phil Hardberger Park. What I found was that walkers are pretty much taking their lives into their own hands because of some of the bicyclists. The vast majority of bicyclists do seem to be out for a leisurely ride but you have a handful that treat it as some sort of racing track. When I got back to where I had started there was even a bicyclist turning around a bend in the path doing 30mpg. A lady in back of me yelled out, "Hey, slow down!" A friend who was with her said that they (some bicyclists) do this all the time. I think I'll stick with Phil Hardberger Park.
