There wasn't that much to see on the trail itself. The whole trail is paved. If you plan to visit the missions this is a lot longer than 15 miles. This is a great bike trail not good for hiking.

One of the most beautiful trails in TX. This is an east trail, all paved and road bike will do. You can start in downtown or mission Espada, and for the most part switch riding sides. Watch for families and fisherman on the sides, some sharp turns but overall incredible ride. We like to start at the blue art gallery in downtown and finish back there for a good cold beer!

This is good for road biking definitely, but hard when there are walkers on the trail not paying attention. I try to take my best friend and son here as much as I can.

Really nice trails, paved throughout, very peaceful strolling along the river. Lots of birds,ducks,etc. and native landscapes , it's a great nature trail. There are tons of places to stop along the way, some in the shade, some not. It is in the sun most of the trail, so sunscreen,hat & water are a must. During the summer months go early. Also paved trails can be hard on the feet if you are not used to it, wear appropriate foot gear.

Don't forget the sunscreen

This is not a hiking trail or even walking trail in summer due to no shade and complete cement sidewalk. Good for joggers or bike riders

Nice, easy paved bike trail. If you bike to all of the missions you'll run into several portions of the trip that are on city streets with some traffic. Very little shade and very hot in the summer. Wear sunscreen and take plenty of water.

Awesome trail! They went all out when they built it! I go there sometimes and rent the Bcycles along the trail. Very nice!

Nice little walk. Beautiful architecture of the missions and the aqueduct along the way. Very easy the only thing that makes it a little difficult is the distance and the heat if you take children or are not outdoors a lot. Planning on doing this one again in the future.

5 Stars. Very nice bike trail here, well-paved and marked. You have several destinational stops along the trail to visit the missions, which makes it a very nice, easy-going day.
