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.

Go early. Very crowded in afternoons.

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

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

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.

Great way to see this area of the city. Can get crowded and/or hot depending on time of year or day. A lot of "touristy" restaurants and shops, but you can definitely find a few local spots here too.

Beautiful Riverwalk!

Wonderful trail with lots to see and do.

Nice walk along the river in the middle of the city. Very crowded at night. Lots to see and do

I love walking the river walk! It is always so festive with friendly faces everywhere.

Downtown SA and the Riverwalk area are the best thing SA has going on. The Alamo is well maintained and interesting, and the area along the river is beautiful, full of shops, foliage, and friendly people. Loved my time in this area.

Nice urban city trail. More of a happening spot than a hike. Nice place to people watch, shop and have a bite to eat.

Beautiful walk with lots of history. If you can walk it next to one of the river tour boats, they'll share all the great histories and you'll save admission.

More of a nice place to hang out eat and have drinks :)

If you like city walking with more then skyscrapers to look at this is the place. You have a mall, bars, popular resturants, a stage where many films were made (Miss Congeniality) and a IMAX theater all located along this riverwalk 20' below the city streets. Oh this place is awesome at night!

If you have never been, it is a must on your bucket list!
