Great hidden gem of a trail system! I’ve lived in San Antonio area for almost 20 years and never knew this place existed! We parked and entered at the Drury Inn/1604 entrance and we rucked this trail (21+miles) on a Thursday morning with very little traffic~one runner, 3-4 walkers and one dog walking his human and never got bored of the sights and beauty throughout the entire 21+miles we did! (We basically went out and back ~ with a few ‘accidental’ circles along the way :). Very shaded throughout most of the trail which will be nice on a hot sunny day~we rucked in drizzle 44-degrees cold but did appreciate the tree cover for that as well :) This is paved the entire way, with many side trails to explore off the main paved trail. CLEAN restrooms throughout with covered pavilions scattered as well. Picnic tables, filtered water fountains and again CLEAN restrooms, some with regular flushing toilets! This park was amazing for our long distance needs and we will DEF be returning!! *could use a little more signage past the 8-mile mark as we did a few circles but it was full of beauty so no worries there :)

Great Trail. Can run further than 12.2 but unsure where the trail ends. Paved the entire route. Low traffic past 10 miles. Police patrolled on 4 wheeler. Ends at a bus pickup station.

Excellent trail, especially for longer runs! Starting at the Valero Trailhead it’s a slight downhill the entire way. The reverse direction is a slight incline, and while it doesn’t look like much on paper you will feel it. ;) Relatively clean, quite busy (but not uncomfortably so) with bikers, runners, walkers and doggos. Off-and-on shaded areas, lots of natural beauty with some ponds, wildlife, and safe trails. It’s paved 95% of the way except for a small section of bumpy trail so I don’t know that I’d call it “trail running.” Exhausting but great run!

Hit this twice with my road bike. Lived here 7 years and so mad at myself for not doing this sooner. Gonna explore every trail and bike the whole trail as a goal. Everyone and their dogs are there on the weekend, inclusive and fun regardless of your goals or skill level. Even saw and electric skateboard. Weekdays after 5 are less busy and better for biking and less strollers. The trail is not very wide and has some blind curves. Not made for speed bikes, safety first.

I went today for a long run and loved it! Saw so many cute deer! Decent amount of people, plus a lot of doggos. Really enjoyed it.

Great trail for a long run. This is a fully paved/concrete trail, so not exactly “trail running”. No cars, not too much foot traffic, occasional obnoxious cyclist who thinks he’s in the Tour de France, etc. It’s a great time, and lots of different access points.

Such a beautiful park! Paved trail for walking, jogging, or biking. Dirt trails for biking, hiking, and exploring. We saw a family of deer, and they were so friendly. There is a nice playground, and the park is very clean.

Great trail mountain biking. A lot of off trails to leave the main paved road. Also, a couple of mountain biking playgrounds with dirt jumps to go off on for a brake from the trail.

great park bring lots of water if not drink at stops, super hot on trails. even the fountains have filtered water! so you can fill up! so no excuses for not staying hydrated.

Great place to go for a short or long bike ride. If you want exercise, this is the trail to be. It's a one way 23+ miles, so unless you want to do 46+, make sure to turn around after awhile.

Love it! One has the choice of paved or off-road at any time along this 14-mike, car-free, family-friendly trail. Bravo, San Antonio!

Well kept trail. I went off a Friday and it wasn't crowded. Lots of distance markers. Just a few mild small hills, a pretty flat trail for this area.

Safe, paved trail that goes for about 13 miles (26 roundtrip) starting at Drury Inn parking area at 1604 and I10 to end at Ingram Park trailhead. Connects up to multiple other starting points with parking, notably OP Schnabel park (behind the new playground), and past the Walmart off of Bandera and Mainland. A few drinking fountains and port-a-john stops along the route located roughly at 2.2 miles, 3.8miles, 7 miles, etc. (by GPS starting at Drury Inn). Low water crossings flood out after heavy rains (like this weekend) and are impassable on foot and bike too if you are smart. Mostly frequented by cyclists, runners, and walkers.

Nice easy paved trail right in town. Good for walking, biking or roller blading.
