San Antonio, TX

Mission Reach Trail

Starting two miles from downtown, this route, an extension of the River Walk, runs by the 18th century missions, including Mission San Juan and San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. The Mission Reach Trail, traveling south along the San Antonio River, was the final part of an ecosystem restoration project and an extension of the River Walk restoration. This particular section and route turns around at Padre Park in the southeast section of the city. Highly visible mile markers make it easy to adjust the length of the run.
