“Wonderful concept but be smart!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

This is a wonderfully developed concept connecting miles of walk/bike ways that are along mostly dry, sometimes wet creek beds. The paths are very wide concrete to accommodate walkers, joggers, bikers and strollers. You can go in several directions and there are trail heads to park at and some have playgrounds. These are conveniently located by city parks, hotels, eateries and such. Enjoy these for exercise and to be with nature BUT be cautious and smart. Women and/or children should not go alone or after dark. Unfortunately, this is located in a big city, yet has seclusion, and comes with the issues that can bring:(

“Nice Urban Trail System”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

This network of multiuse trails is centered on an old creek bed. Although it is very much an urban trail network and makes its way through residential areas, it is still possible to feel some connection with nature here. The trailhead we accessed the trail from had a map of the trail system, as well as another map showing the entire San Antonio linear park system. There were also porta-potties and water fountains for both humans and dogs. Our dog greatly appreciated this after our walk. There are both paved and unpaved trails within the network. The portion that we walked took us through an area with housing on one side and open fields and woodland on the other. We eventually came to a small pond which was absolutely beautiful, especially since the leaves were just starting to change color. This is a wonderful area for photography. I found the bikers using this trail to be a little less courteous than I’m used to in Dallas. Of all the bikes that passed us, only one was polite enough to less us know when she was coming up from behind.
