Laurah B. on Missions San Jose To Mission Concepcion
Walking path to see the missions. Very crowded and hot. Nice history.
This is a paved trail ride without any off-road opportunities. However, if you want some good exercise and enjoy seeing a little history, it's a nice ride! I parked my car opposite the La Tuna restaurant and rode down from the Blue Point Arts District trailhead. It was a daily scenic albeit shadeless ride along the river on a hot summer day, so I was glad I had plenty of water. I toured the missions, cooled off in the museum and refilled my water bottles for the trip back. I ended my trip with some great fish tacos and a cold drink at La Tuna.
This is a beautiful path through part of San Antonio you do normally see. This was a good easy path to bike/walk that has mile/tenth markers located in the walkway, very cool. You can do as much or as little as you like as it is great for exercising or just sitting and enjoying the weather or relaxing. Watching the different fowls was enjoyable as i rode by the river. This is perfect for families because you can travel to several of the missions and enjoy the ruins and there are picnic areas scattered along the way. There isn’t any shade so be careful during the heat of the day. There is an eco park that was very beautiful to walk through. I plan to go back and use this as an alternative walking/biking path. Very much recommend visiting this historic area.
Ended up riding about 14 miles, out and back. It was a lot of fun and a pretty easy level ride, I used it as a break from mountain biking the day before. Even though there were lots of people the wide trail offers plenty of room. Other than a few inconsiderate Segway riders, I had no issues and really enjoyed the ride. Also, at the blue star brewery there is a sign that says no bikes.ignore it you can go right past it. The map right next to it shows you can keep riding.
