Prefect for my kiddies ages 8-15 walked 1 mile had Picnic , plenty of tables . Ran 3 miles while kids played at park. There's basketball courts , pavilion for renting and clean restrooms. Can't forget all the beautiful deer!
I am relocating to SA from Houston, which is the best bike trail in or around SA, please not 1.2 miles...
Are you serious when you say this trail is 1.2 miles. This is not even enough to break a sweat...:(
I love this park with its shady off cement sidewalk little paths and the deer to observe. You can get a really good workout for several hours by walking towards the leon greenway belt trail and this has many cut offs or other trailheads to walk to. Always shade and many different things to look at like trees, shrubs, flowers, deer and nice pedestrians walking, jogging or biking.
Went on 2 Hour Walk Adventure! SO COOL! Speing Time in Winterbfor Texas.
I really enjoy this trail. I've been a few times. My dog saw is first dear there :) I wish it was closer to my house. RIght now its about 20 minutes away. Theres unpaved and paved trails that are handicap and stroller accessible.
Trails were fun, good work. My first time here in San Antonio on a vacation. Another trail close by was closed, that was a bummer. Met up on the trail with a local Robert. Thankfully because these trails are not marked at all. Robert was great guide and new the trails very well. Many areas are not maintained and over grown with grass and tree or shrub branches. It was fun ride.
I loved it and it's now my home park for trails. I did 3.2 miles and did it all. Went through the paved areas, went through the rough pavement, the hilly dirt trails and the creek's rocky trails. Can't get enough!
Really nice trails. The main trails are marked well. But I never found much of a map to plan my route by. There are many small unpaved trails you can use to cut off through the woods. Pretty creek bed. The people here were polite and courteous.
If you have kids with you, WATCH OUT for the bikes though, they come up on you quickly and they are going pretty fast.
I really love this park. It's close to home and has lots of off road trails to get lost in. The. Paved trails are good as well but off road is more of a challenge and thrill for me. Lots of wildlife to be seen as your riding so beware of deer crossing!
Very fun place, fast and challenging trails. Something for everyone. Also a great place to run. My favorite spot in SA. I want to stay her just for the Greenway. Try it, you'll have a good time.
Great trail for all levels. There's some nice singletrack over in Birds of Prey and a nice trail that extends from O.P Schnabel Park to the Valero Trailhead.
Just did 40 minutes staying in OPS park never backtracked or crossed. Can do paved outer loop or take numerous trails. Share with bikes. Keep heading east and u will end up on Leon creek trail. Lots of people around so single woman hiker felt safe.
Great place to experience some outdoors exercise within the city. It's so close to home so it's a convenient location. When I used to ride the trails i used to easily get lost which made for good adventures. Now with the paved trails and trail heads that have been added, it is a great place for everyone in the family including the dog. Whether you are looking to hike, jog, trail run, mountain bike, or just enjoy the outdoors this place is perfect. The Leon Creek Greenway is expanding too so there's plenty more to explore!
This has been the go-to site for me for a couple of years since it is relatively close to where I live and the terrain is enjoyable for beginner to intermediate level riders. The trails start getting more difficult after the Babcock bridge headed north. Any rider would tell you that there is never one ride that is the same in regards to mountain biking. This is because the property itself is fairly large; stretching from Ingram all the way past 1604 and UTSA. Lots of trails, lots of fun.
This is the second time I've been and it's always an experience. We had a group of 12 and the ride was incredible. However, I fell in the bamboo run. Stupid mud...
Went to OP for the first time and the short time I was there it was awesome. I'm from southwest of Houston and there isn't so much as an anthill here to ride over. Theres plenty if you travel an hour or so to Houston from where I am, just nothing here. We were on vacation and on our way back from Concan I wanted to do some trails with my family, so we tried OP. Loved the rocks and ravines here. I'd say there's enough here to challenge most riders. My two young children 8 and 5 thought it was great, at least until they wore out on me. We stuck to the more moderate trails and had a real good time. I will say that I would rather like to go back in the fall when it's not so hot. It was about 104 that day. I really enjoyed that neck of San Antonio called Helotes. Btw, if you're in that neck of the woods, give Goomba Pizza a try, it's awesome and only about 5 minutes from the park.
