If you want to get outdoors and enjoy the natural beauty of Texas, there are plenty of scenic walking trails all around San Antonio.

San Antonio River Walk Mission Reach Trail

This riverside walkway leads you right along San Antonio’s iconic river, bound toward the old town square. You’ll see historic sights and popular attractions that draw locals and tourists alike, so anticipate heavy traffic in the afternoons. If you’re interested in an urban hike, the River Walk is the perfect route to see the city.

McAllister Park Blue Loop Trail

McAllister Park’s trail is particularly popular on sunny days, but the wide path provides plenty of room even when the foot traffic is heavier.  The trail covers more than six miles surrounded by colorful wildflowers, and it’s tempting to stop and take in the serene scenery, even if you’re sharing the road with others. You might even see some deer if you know where to look. The terrain varies from smooth road to rougher ground, so wear sturdy hiking shoes.

Leon Creek Greenway Trail

This greenway is a long yet gentle trail, spanning more than 12 miles of natural beauty. The paved path is easy on the feet, and it also accommodates bicycles and wheelchairs with its smooth, maintained surface. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can bring a mountain bike to break away and explore the offshoot biking and hiking trails that lead into more challenging terrain.

El Camino and Rio Medina Loop Trail

Running along the hazy green Rio Medina, El Camino provides a short, two-mile trek around the Medina River Natural Area.  The whole family can explore the verdant environment, and you can look to the canopy overhead for some quality birdwatching. The colorful plant life changes with the season, and the tall trees offer ample shade in the summertime.
