LOVE this park/trail. Ran this all the time last spring. Paved trail for the most part, very scenic, dog friendly. Deer are everywhere. Watch for the occasional snake. Huge kudos to the people who maintain this place. Dog parks are the best around as well :)

Simply a great walking/ hiking trail. Beautiful scenery, clear trail, and a decent amount of people here. I took my wife, my seven year old daughter, and my best friend for the full 3.3 mile hike. Everyone we met on the trail was friendly and courteous. There are plenty of short cuts and exits on the trail if you need to cut your hike short. Basically we just went out there to be out in nature, and along the way we found a great spot to have a picnic.

Very enjoyable and picturesque trail. Lots of trees.

I walked this trail with my three boys, two of whom rode in a stroller. Pushing all that on some of the rocky uphill spots was rough but overall a fun hike.

Had a lot of fun on this trail the off road trail is not marked but it intersects with the hard trail a lot so it's not hard to find! It's pretty technical lots of ups and downs a lot of rocks and roots lots of wildlife just feet away!

Fun ride but not sure I'd go back considering my other options. No marked off-road trails. My if the trail was over grown. No major elevation changes and lots of rocks. I don't see how you can ride this on a hard tail and have a good time.

Early mornin hike was awsome...friendly deer near the trails.

Great park to get out and enjoy some nature. The park and trails are well kept and clean. Being new to San Antonio I wanted to get out with my wife and enjoy a good walk. Plenty of trials and paths to take and just enjoy being outside.

It needs to be better marked.

This trail is an excellent "quick fix" if you want to stay in town. Great scenery, mostly all shaded, and a great distance. They only downside is, water fountains are few and far between. So just be sure to top off the camelbak before heading out.

Oak Trail is actually .8 miles but there is another trail (can't remember the name, starts with an S) that links up with it. There are construction signs saying it will open in Spring 2016, but the trails were all open. Prepare for mud!! Especially if it has been raining in San Antonio. A lot of the trail is in the woods so bring bug spray, I did brush off a tick so just be prepared for the ol' tick check afterward. I enjoyed it overall, but feel it would be much better when the ground is dry.

Really nice network of trails. There are wide well paved trails that are crossed by many unpaved trails that lead thru the dry creek beds and wooded areas. Primarily shady and not too much elevation, good for hikers, joggers, bikers and dog walkers. You can be as tame or adventerous as you want based on the trail you take.

Keep in mind this area is part of a flood plain and the creek beds are not always dry. If you are hiking the creekbeds, wear appropriate footgear.

Downside - for an area you can spend a day exploring... the facilities are pretty much limited to the parking area, so go before you hit the trail.

Great tree coverage on this trail helps you beat the heat!

Nice trail for all ages, fitness levels & activities. Level well kept trails make for an easy walk,ride or run. I saw walker, joggers, bikers... dog walkers and stroller pushers. Well shaded, lots of places to sit & picnic.

Be mindful of where you are, the trails are well marked- but there's overlapping with the Salado Creek Greenway and it's easy to get turned around. I had to GPS myself a few times with the AllTrails app.
