Biked this trail in the spring and it was wonderful. Very easy and everyone using the path is very friendly. The sites are really cool, and history behind them is fascinating. Nice views of the river and some of downtown if you hit the right spots.
One of the most beautiful trails in TX. This is an east trail, all paved and road bike will do. You can start in downtown or mission Espada, and for the most part switch riding sides. Watch for families and fisherman on the sides, some sharp turns but overall incredible ride. We like to start at the blue art gallery in downtown and finish back there for a good cold beer!
Really nice trails, paved throughout, very peaceful strolling along the river. Lots of birds,ducks,etc. and native landscapes , it's a great nature trail. There are tons of places to stop along the way, some in the shade, some not. It is in the sun most of the trail, so sunscreen,hat & water are a must. During the summer months go early. Also paved trails can be hard on the feet if you are not used to it, wear appropriate foot gear.
Nice, easy paved bike trail. If you bike to all of the missions you'll run into several portions of the trip that are on city streets with some traffic. Very little shade and very hot in the summer. Wear sunscreen and take plenty of water.
Nice little walk. Beautiful architecture of the missions and the aqueduct along the way. Very easy the only thing that makes it a little difficult is the distance and the heat if you take children or are not outdoors a lot. Planning on doing this one again in the future.
