San Antonio - Salado Creek Greenway

Saturday, June 22, 2013

We went down to do an out and back 10K on this nice wide paved hike and bike trail. We started at the Lady Bird Johnson Trailhead.

The first 1.5 mile took us to Tobin Trailhead where we learned the Mr. Tobin had donated his family's land to make this greenway possible for the people to enjoy.

Continuing on the trail we arrived at Oakwell Trailhead and then made a U-turn and walked back.

We saw a blooming palm tree. I didn't know palm trees flowered.

We also saw evidence of major flooding in the area. The debris in the trees was around 7 feet. Don't walk here when it's raining!

We also saw a deer, I cut his head off in the picture but thought I'd post it to prove I saw it. LOL

    I love walking there too. Walk there the week after the flood. It was really scary of what the water can do. We also saw a deer. Also a snake sunning on the path. It moved away as we got closer.

    I didn't know palm trees flowered, either. I was interested to know if you would see flood damage...glad you included the photo.

    We love the Salado Creek Greenway. You should go a little further south--start at Southsides Lion Park (off of Pecan Valley road) and walk north. Beautiful, shady path. Great for summer walks!

    Awesome. Sounds like a great time and great history and exercise.
