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.

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!

It was a good trail for running. Lots of people and the view at the tower was decent.

This is one of my favorite parks for hiking close to home. Lots of trails and some of them are really pretty. the trails are well marked. this park does get a lot of traffic.

Great in town trail. Makes it easy to forget you're so close to the city!

Nice short hike, perfect to kill some time on a weekend afternoon. Nothing to strenuous, relatively easy hike. The view from the observatory isn't the best, it'd be better if the tower was high above the treeline.

Solid and fun quick trail you can take if you're looking for some elevation.

It's a beautiful place. I did the whole hillview and added red oak trail and I will be going through the middle trails soon.

I like this one. Good workout - there's some good parts with climbing rocks that's good for the legs.

Such a beautiful and fun trail! My dog LOVES it and every time I leave I feel worked out and tired hahaha
Such a pretty view when you reach the top and the natural trails are incredibly adventurous:)

Hillview Nature Trail is the only trail in the park that is a loop trail by itself. Hillview surrounds the other trails except the Red Oak spur. The northwest section is my favorite including the Bush Hill area. Except for a very short paved section close to the parking lot, the trail is natural surfaces. The trail is well maintained as is all the trails in the park.

Real nice trails, would be nice if dog owners will pick the poop and take it away, some trails really stink!
