Family Friendly The route isn't overly long, and the tower at the end makes for a fun destination.

Description

This paved trail is commonly used to get to Observation Tower to see the surrounding San Antonio area. Along the way, the trail intersects with Yucca Trail and Hillview Trail at two separate points. There are no water fill up stations, but there is a bathroom near the top point of the trail. I would caution folks with strollers and wheelchairs due to some of the steeper areas on the trail. The observation tower has about 30 steps to climb.

Easy pavement trail. Elevation gains would be the only difficult part of this trail. Viewpoint is key feature at the end. 0.8mi
