trail running
1 month ago

I completed this trail on 28 April 2018… Even though it shows in my history, it does not show I completed it here. This was a spectacular trail, I and based on camp Bullis and only came to Fort Sam when I needed to. It was great to see it through the trail provided on this app because I saw so much I never would have seen. The grave of Pat the horse, the site of the first army flight, the museums and my favorite was the Quadrangle. I meant to run this trail, but I stopped so many times just so I could see everything. This really is a fantastic base.

Beautiful walk, very relaxing. The trail is small and even though there was a lot of people, no one really get in you to distract you from the trail. You need to pay to get in but it is worth it.

Great place to view birds and butterflies! Lovely place.

Early Saturday morning run...easy no people traffic.

Not really a trail, this is just a walk around Fort Sam Houston using the sidewalks. It's a nice walk though and has a couple of free museums along the way.

loved it, lots to do and some unpaved trail

The botanical gardens are a beautiful oasis. The labeling of flowers, trees, and plants make it interesting and is good for any age group. I especially enjoyed Koi pond and the Tropical Center. There are several historic sites to include homes that have been moved there years ago. The max price to get in is $10 per person for an adult, military is $8. They have a gift shop in a place to eat in there. Overall a great short excursion that is not difficult.

Very beautiful and you will learn all about the different plants in texas and the different climates and environments texas has. I liked this trail very much. Ducks and turtles and many birds here. Butterflys too.

The San Antonio Botanical Gardens are a great place to get away from the noise of the city and walk through a variety of manicured gardens, ponds, and even historic dwellings. On this visit, the Gardens had a special display of life-sized dinosaur models. There is a lot of wildlife to see and photograph while you're there as well.

I loved this trail. The preserved buildings and history was wonderful. We had our dog so we were not able to go into the museums or the quadrangle. Will definitely go back to see those!

This was a very nice section of our Memorial Day Hike. We took our Boys Scout troop out for a 4-5 mile hike across Brackenridge Park. The Botanical Gardens was a section of this hike. It was a great spot for us to take a break in the shade and let the boys get a drink of water and give them a little bit of History about the Botanical Gardens. This area has gone through some major renovations and it is still underway. It is certainly worth the trip if you are in the area.
