Slippery in spots but fun hike. Tested out some new gear in preparation for a much longer hike tomorrow.

Took the family on the hill view and red oak. Overall it is a great trail. We prefer nature trails with minimal pavement, and that’s exactly what we got. The park does have paved trails though if that’s what you are into. The hills we went over are enough to get the blood pumping. The altitude change is always a welcome feeling. The views of the San Antonio area are phenomenal. Make sure to check out the lookout tower.

Super refreshing trail, currently a bit muddy due to the rain, and can get a bit crowded. Highly recommend, though

Can be a little steep and rocky depending on which path you take, but it has great views! Combination of paved and gravel trails. My GSD handled it pretty well

Brought 6 month boxer puppy with me - he loved it. Took a water break once we got to the tower as that was about halfway. Didn't see a lot of people at all, but we arrived at the park at 630am.

Really like the area. When u get off the paved walkway the trail I was in was wide, easy to follow. Plus you can tell they spread mulch in the trail a lot- it was thick and cushion-y. I loved that. A few rocks and small tree stumps sticking up, so still need to be aware of your foot falls but felt very safe. Only reason I gave 4 not 5 stars- there were a lot of people but everyone very nice and respectful of walking space.

Good loop - but too short. I would recommend doing it at least twice around. I like that so much is shaded.

This is just one of many loops that can be done at this very nice park. Trails are very well maintained and everyone can design combinations to suit what they wish to do....paved, natural, or rocky. We particularly liked Red Oak, northern section of Hillview, and Shady Creek, although we would utilize all of the trails here.

The first time we tried Eisenhower Park, we didn't like it as much. We had selected the paved trails instead and didn't find it much of a challenge. The second time we chose Hillview/Ref Oak trails and found it to be an easy to moderate hike about 3 miles total from start to finish. Much better experience and would very likely return again.

Very cool afternoon walk, be aware not all trails are easy for kids or strollers as some people we saw thought

Good place to get out of the city, and theres usually not *too* many people to run into!

I love it there! Amazing trails and paths. The view is spectacular! I would advise you go to the bathroom before cause although the porter potties are convenient, it would be best to not need them

This is a very nice trail for San Antonio. A nice view at the top of Cedar and Hill. Gets s little hot so take water. Playground could use shade for kids. The terrain provides some views but doesn't vary.
