Walking thru the Alamo Quarry Market, admire the old quarry buildings and static displays of mining equipment. Leaving Market, climb uphill to head of La Jara Creek & follow it downhill under canopy of trees. Continue thru Alamo Heights neighborhood toward McNay mansion/art museum, admiring the homes, expecially on Bluebonnet. Pass through the long, covered corredor at AH High School, with water fountain, soda machines, and several restful venues with seating. Continue thru quiet backstreets to AH Middle School. Walk thru AH MS. Continue to St. Anthony de Padua Catholic Church with its Alamo-like facade, restored chapel, grotto, and unique stations of the cross. Continue thru the grounds. You will pass large, more modern, and beautiful church. Near Market, notice the large open-pit quarry, now golf course. Good view from top of stairs at back of cinema.

I would have given 5 stars if the map was accurate. The map leads you through the middle of 3 different schools. It's a great walk through the beautiful neighborhoods of Alamo Heights.

Enjoyable. A few streets have changed since first mapped so we made our own way. Lots to see and generally good sidewalks
