Although this is a description of the 2019 walks, our walks in 2020 will be the same (with a few tweaks to incorporate exciting new parks and trails that are popping up throughout the city.)
One of downtown San Antonio’s gifts to visitors on foot is its meandering streets and pathways, formed by the course of the San Antonio River and the various settlements that grew up around it. On every corner you will you’ll come across some fascinating testament to the city’s historically rich past and breathtaking natural beauty. All walks are rated 1A or 1B, with some stairs.
