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.

Good hike. We got there pretty late and didn’t bring a flashlight with us so it was difficult to find a way back because it was super dark. However the trail is marked pretty well and it is a good trail.

Some parts are challenging to say the least
Great views. Superb area to explore. Multiple choices

Did the Main Loop Trail on 3/3/18. Misty, drizzly weather and a little chilly. Rocks on top of the hill were very slippery due to the drizzle. This is a very good trail to test the legs and hips. It begins with a serious climb then a "flat" section on the top then an interesting descent. We started by going left from the entry trail. This gives you the toughest part at the start. Met some friendly folks along the way. Very clean trail.

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.

It was a nice walk.

Great trail for Texas! Some trails rated as difficulty really weren’t. There was one section of the Restoration Trail where you could hear and see building of huge homes and that took away from the tranquility a bit but it was just for a short section. Highly recommend and I’ll be back :) Very well marked trails too.

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 hike! So glad we got out there.... highly recommend.

nice trail. good way to spend an hour or two.

Beautiful and quiet. Moderately difficult due to the incredible incline.

Perfect. Dogs on leash are welcome. Many trails.

great trail!

Go early. Very crowded in afternoons.

Lots of history, tourist attractions and fun things to do on the riverwalk.

Love it! Wish they had more views because the place is beautiful!

The Riverwalk is geared towards tourism, and in the process much of the historical aspect is overlooked. You can definitely still find interesting history here, but the overwhelming push here is dining and shopping. Having said that, the Riverwalk is a must when visiting San Antonio.

The River Walk is a great place in San Antonio. Great restaurants and shops. Great place to walk around while in San Antonio. A must visit when there.

It's a city walk but great scenery and lots of pubs

Main loop was decent but all the side trails were closed so only was able to do the main loop

Enjoyed running all over the mountain! Trails everywhere.

Beautiful! great little shops and restaurants. Very picturesque!
We did have a double stroller and it was difficult at times due to the high foot traffic. Very busy and popular area of San Antonio.
Also, we had a hard time finding the handicap access to get the stroller over the walkways to cross the river. The signs said there were access points but we were unable to find them.

Still a nice walk. We enjoyed the sculpture garden courtyard towards the end of the walk.

I really like this park. It's not too crowded. And every blue moon you'll pass someone up, giving you a sense of security when hiking alone. This park offers trails for all skill levels. It's beautiful and not too close to the highway to obstruct the blissful sounds of nature.

Pleasant surprise of a short hike. Main Loop is about 2 miles. Going right to left or vice versa it's uphill half and down the back half. Plenty of optional trails along the way if you plan to extend. Trails are well marked and maintained. Cement from the parking lot to about .15 miles and then changes to bed rock and dirt the rest of the trails. Still easily navigable after a decent rain but chances are they close the smaller trails. Decent elevation works up a sweat. I would consider moderate difficulty. Only grind I may have is no pets allowed but it's a nature park so understandable.
