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.

Great variety of trails but nothing too extreme. Lots of shades trail yet still plenty breezy on windy days. Perfect for family outings.

Absolutely beautiful!

switch back are hell great pave bike trail lots of shade take plenty of water

Great clean trails for training..

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.

Rocky, exposed and barely anything you’d call singletrack

Great trail.. a bit of adventure if you are not on track.. but great experience!

Great trails. Love the deer and birds and the smell of fresh cut grass. Go early to see less bikers and more nature. ALLTRAILS worked fantastic. Thanks for the track.

For those who wind up on the ADA approved paved trail and find themselves disappointed... look a little harder to find the singletrack. It’s the trail with orange paint markings. It crosses the paved trail once and the mulch trail once. The ADA trail is 0.73 miles long and the singletrack is 3.11 miles long crossing the powerline road twice.

Most trails were a basic level 3 and covered by trees, however there are a lot of open trails in the sunshine and much warmer. Even though it is near homes there is nature and deer and still fairly quiet. A lot of new trails to take and many bike trails. Its not bad if you just want to get a few miles of basic hiking in early in the day.

it was fun but it is Rocky

This is a fast easy ride !!! Single track with some rock gardens with no obstructions to look ahead

For the most part everything is cool, the trail is pretty narrow at times. More bicyclists than hikers which for the most part isn’t a problem. There is the occasional “I’m better than you, get out of my way” bicyclist. I don’t take too kindly to that, I am courteous and respectful and realize that I am slower so I move out of the way and even apologize for the inconvenience I may be causing. I however am not gonna run 5 feet off the trail into waste high grass or what ever for you. Being a rude jerk won’t get you anywhere, be respectful and courteous to EVERYONE and everyone will be happy and fine.

Loved this trail

Nice trail to ride. Love the trail and the views.

Amazing, great way to get in touch with nature.

The moderate classification is appropriate. There are some technical areas with gradual elevation climbs. but doesn't require you to stop and slowdown and climb up rocky points in the trail. There are a few good views and is a quiet trail for a 6+ mile trail run. Might have to do this loop backwards.

Has a nice paved trail. Not good for single track running at all. Will not be back.

Great trails. Highly recommend wearing the right shoes. Those rocks will have your feet hurting.

Did the Joe Johnston trail with my husband and also a small part of the overlook trail - April 9 (or 10th??) 2018. I just brought tennies and the rocks were a little hard to walk on toward the end - my feet were tired and my ankles a little sore. We were jet lagged though with two hours of sleep. Dinosaur tracks were fun to see! I’m from the PNW so fun to see something a little different. Good little hike.

It’s a nice trail, too rocky for running. Great for a trail hike! Lots of deer and wild flowers

A flat but sometimes rocky trail that passes an ancient midden, dinosaur tracks and the an old rock house. A good introduction to the Canyon,

This route made me feel like a tourist in my own city. I’ve been here for years now and never knew there was a Korea/Vietnam war memorial, I never walked through the King William district, and the Guenther House is one of my favorite places for lunch now.

I am so used to the touristy area of the Riverwalk, but the Riverwalk in the King William district was very peaceful and serene. I went off the route several times because there was so much going on today I did this walk. During this route, I made it into a 8 mile pub crawl and it was a blast. Met great people and even though it took a lot longer than I expected, I enjoyed every minute.

I highly recommend this route to anyone.

Fun trail loop that meanders through forest, rock gardens, some grassland, and several technical sections as well as a few short climbs. There’s a little bit of everything along this trail to hone your mountain biking or trails running skills. Start at the Gold Canyon Park trailhead and walk in until you hit the single-track. Then go left or right and with some luck (and probably your smart phone) you’ll make it back to the same location in 3.1 miles. You can also pick up the trail from the power line gravel road or from behind the nearby Redland
Woods Park.

I have used this trail for hiking several times now, I have yet to be disappointed. The last time there I had my grandkids join me and we had a great morning.. walking , talking , watching the birds, ducks along the San Antonio River. I would recommend this trail to all... family friendly.!
