Great running course for 2.5mile. You can make it 3 mile by adding additional loop at the end. Nice view and the road is flat most of the part, but it’s rocky under the bridge. I ran in the morning and there was nobody. I don’t recommend to run by myself at night.

Nice trail, but not fully paved and at some point gets really rocky and you almost have to climb underneath a railroad track. So we had to turn around with our stroller after less than half the way. It was still a nice walk

Super easy, well kept trail beside God’s favorite river. It’s a great investment of an hour, plus, it starts and ends across the street from Herbert’s Taco Hut. You just can’t do better.

came on an overcast mid to low 70s day and the trail was mostly vacant with a view river dwellers along the way. the trail is mostly paved or graveled and accessible for most of the trail. there are some spots that would not be accessible for wheelchairs or strollers.

I’m loving these trails. It’s fairly easy and there aren’t a lot of other people on the trails. Scenery is stunning when the creek is flowing.

Walking

The San Marcos Riverwalk trail, while providing a decent orientation of available recreational activities along the river, was shorter than we prefer. Additionally, we were hoping for a trail that closely paralleled the river with more nature and less urban scenes. All in all, the trail wasn’t bad and was pretty deserted early in the morning... ideal for a leisurely walk.

First to Review

The San Marcos Area Trail Walkers hike this river trail often. We are a Meetup. We park our cars at the SM Activity Center, hike over to the Discovery Center on I-35 and then go back. Very enjoyable hike. Join us!
