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.

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.

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

good trail for a quick hike.

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

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.

I try to hike this trail every weekend! Great views, friendly people!

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.

loved it.

Really nice technical trail with some good climbs and descents. View from the top is worth it!

Fantastic walking and running trail. The Eisenhower Park Trail system offers scenic views and some great training hills with technical ascents and descents.

Easy, gradual trails mixed with technical, rocky climbs and descents. Great views of San Antonio at the top. Not for the beginner hiker, but loads of fun!

My fav in San Antonio.

Can be a little steep and rocky depending on which path you take, but it has great views! Combination of paved and gravel trails. My GSD handled it pretty well

Brought 6 month boxer puppy with me - he loved it. Took a water break once we got to the tower as that was about halfway. Didn't see a lot of people at all, but we arrived at the park at 630am.

Really like the area. When u get off the paved walkway the trail I was in was wide, easy to follow. Plus you can tell they spread mulch in the trail a lot- it was thick and cushion-y. I loved that. A few rocks and small tree stumps sticking up, so still need to be aware of your foot falls but felt very safe. Only reason I gave 4 not 5 stars- there were a lot of people but everyone very nice and respectful of walking space.
