The history and the scenery make this a great experience!

Good for a family stroll after a visit to the Alamo or a date night. Be kind to the homeless and take some spending money. Biggest detractor is if you are pushing a stroller or are not as mobile, finding ramps or in service elevators to change levels to cross bridges becomes a challenge.

we got there early, GPS took us to the deer loop spot and we started walking realized we we're back at the car quick. had to download map to know where to go. signs got confusing at times. but it was kept up well. it was nice. my daughter and I went and all of the holes were friendly on the trails. the view from the top is awesome. felt great. definitely would go back.

Great scenic trails. Not too much shade from the sun, so I'd recommend going on a nice fall day or an overcast day.

Great views and little traffic. Easy to bike.

I run here from my house which is a mile away. It is a great place to get some hills and enjoy the beautiful scenery up to the top where you there is a great view of the city which is a nice reward for your climb. There are benches at the top and water as well if you want to sit and enjoy the view for a spell.

Good hike for one hr. Took a loop starting with Yucca and came down thru Hill view..

Great road bike trail little traffic!

Remarkably handsome for being smack dab in civilization so-called. There is a striking variety of greenery and, if you hear a rustle in the forest, chances are decent it is a rabbit. The paved incline is steep enough for a nice gain that given its short distance you can master in short order. As others have mentioned, there is a network of side trails that take you up forest gains that are more challenging than the paved incline. The highlight, though, is 'The Hill,' a jagged rise exposed to the sun that hits you hardest as you are reaching your limit. The proper way to master this climb is to repeat it so there is no doubt who goes out on top. Just do not try this after a heavy lunch.

Loved this trail

Nice trail to ride. Love the trail and the views.

Superb scenery some parts of the trail are a challenge. The scenery is worth the effort

Beautiful walk, very relaxing. The trail is small and even though there was a lot of people, no one really get in you to distract you from the trail. You need to pay to get in but it is worth it.

I saw baby ducks!

Great place to view birds and butterflies! Lovely place.

This route made me feel like a tourist in my own city. I’ve been here for years now and never knew there was a Korea/Vietnam war memorial, I never walked through the King William district, and the Guenther House is one of my favorite places for lunch now.

I am so used to the touristy area of the Riverwalk, but the Riverwalk in the King William district was very peaceful and serene. I went off the route several times because there was so much going on today I did this walk. During this route, I made it into a 8 mile pub crawl and it was a blast. Met great people and even though it took a lot longer than I expected, I enjoyed every minute.

I highly recommend this route to anyone.

It was ok. I ended up merging with a paved trail along the river to get more distance.

I have used this trail for hiking several times now, I have yet to be disappointed. The last time there I had my grandkids join me and we had a great morning.. walking , talking , watching the birds, ducks along the San Antonio River. I would recommend this trail to all... family friendly.!

Gorgeous scenery and an excellent getaway!

Beautiful nearly all year round. numerous trail entry ways so that you can carry your experience each time you are in the trail.

Nice trail, well maintained. Several places have a lot of loose rocks.

If you're going to do any "urban hiking", this walk plus the Missions Trail, and a few other downtown areas is some of the best. It may be easy going, but you'll get a whole lot of it.

Super easy trail not sure why it’s marked moderate! 4.90 from parking lot and back. I run this once a week and it’s super easy

Nice walk. Good place to take kids

Love to go here when I have hill repeats on my training schedule or when I want a hilly 3-5 mile run that is challenging and gets my heart rate up. Nice scenery :)

Decent walking trail thaht's mostly flat and paved. The signs indicate bicycles are allowed, but I wouldn't recommend it since it's just a short pedestrian pathway. There are outdoor workout stations positioned about every quarter mile or so and there's an outdoor classroom near the library. The watchtower at the top of the 75 ft hill isn't that exciting.

Beautiful trail system with lots of natural features and nice places to stop and relax. Also a nice place to kayak up and down the river using the convenient lock system.
