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.

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.

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!
