This trail offers it all! From rivers to forests to deserts to steep hills to historic/haunted sites! The farther you go into the trail, the more peaceful & shaded. There is lots of natural life to see such as flowers, armadillos, & snakes. It's perfect for walkers, hikers, bikers, etc.

I recommend parking on the Highway 16 side & heading west towards Applewhite Rd.

I used to live right down the road & now I'm in Florida & miss this trail so much.

Love this trail. There are paved options as well as natural sections of the trail. Trail is clearly marked, well kept and great for most fitness levels (in my opinion). More traffic on weekends, but I've never considered it excessive ; I hike Eisenhower Park regularly. Would certainly recommend!

starts flat mostly dirt but soon turns into a rocky and interesting ascend. would strongly recommend that you were Trail runners and if you have weak ankles or knees definitely hiking boots. The Descent along the back of the trail is moderate. if the rocks are damp they tend to be slippery and most of the hike is a rocky terrain with loose gravel. hiking poles would be recommended for the Ascend and descend part of the trail. the trail is moderately traveled and expect a good workout.

Amazing trail for walking or running!

Great trail even when a little damp, elevations on connecting trails will leave you in a pool of sweat!!

Very nice paved and natural trails that are well marked. Natural trails are rocky and steep in places. can be slippery if it's been raining! but my dog and I thought it was fun and pretty. lots of butterflies and wildflowers for this time of year.

Awesome, peaceful, great trails!

A few nice paved running trails in this park a several unpaved offshoots for hiking. wonderful smell of eucalyptus trees and some decent views from the lookout tower on the hilltop. I went in the evening after a hot day and the park trails were busy but not overly crowded.

It is an enjoyable trail with a mixed topography of rocks, dirt and exposed tree roots. There are a couple of moderately steep inclines, but not too challenging so children and dogs can make trip. This is my go-to for trail running as well.

Not so much a hike that we hoped for. Really turned into a 5 mile walk at a good pace for cardio. Pretty surroundings, abundant wildlife , trail was paved the entire way. Nice, clean, safe and plentiful parking. Probably would not go again though.

Great clean trails for training..

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

The beginning was a little boring, but the second half was worth it!

Loved this trail

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

I love this trail! It has some great views and beautiful trees! There are a few inclines here and there which aren’t too bad!!

Good trail with a mixture of paved in on paved paths. One nice thing about this is they list each trail with difficulties on markers throughout the entire trail. It is very well laid out as well. You can walk all the way up to the lookout tower but the trees prevent this view from being remarkable. I wish they would trim several of the trees in order to get an unobstructed view of San Antonio.

Very slick when wet! First time and enjoyed the challenge. Some steep rocks and exposed tree roots. Can’t wait to run it when it’s dry. All trails stopped recording my whole loop. I ran the loop and got off on some side trails somehow and ended up doing 3.5 miles.

Went February and weather was good. The unpaved trail is alright and links up to river, but not moderate trail and really easy. The paved trail is nice and good for beginners. Next time I'm bring my bike to enjoy more.

Enjoy this trail and the other connecting trails. I've ran these more than a handful of times grateful for the rocks, roots, and slight climbs. Just gotta be careful on dewy/misty mornings...slippery rocks.

I really enjoyed this hike. The parts of the trail that are not paved are the best and very beautiful with the multiple views, they do have a steeper and tougher terrain but that’s what I’m personally was looking for in trails, it was definitely worth the hour drive, and I will be returning.
