This isn’t an official South Texas Destination — yet. But it will be eventually, so I’m categorizing it as one.
As I believe I’ve said before, my plan is to eventually visit the entire Howard W. Peak Greenway Trails System, which, since they’re still building more trails, is a pretty long-term project. I also hope to walk the entire River Walk, but that’s a different project entirely.
I now have walked the Leon Creek Greenway almost from the Valero Trailhead at 1604 to the Leon Vista Trailhead. I estimate that that is about 7 or 8 miles of walking. When I say “almost,” I have missed two spots. One, from Fox Park northwards to just north of the Northside Independent School District bus parking lot, will be pretty easy to knock out if they ever finish the construction on Hausman Road. Just getting to the parking lot for the Fox Park Trailhead is a challenge at the moment.
The other missed section will require a chauffeur. I walked south from the Buddy Caulk Trailhead and north from the Leon Vista Trailhead and in the time allotted to me, I missed meeting these two paths up by about two blocks. I will need someone to drive me to the closest street to that area to drop me off, then that person will need to pick me up twenty minutes later. This will be something that I will leave to the very end of the project.
Next up will be from the Mainland Trailhead (behind the Bandera Road Walmart) north to the Leon Vista Trailhead and then south from the Leon Vista Trailhead as far as I can go. I don’t think I can make it all the way to the next parking lot, which looks like it’s a couple of miles away.
I’d better load more 1880s National Geographics onto my phone for this one.
