Salado Creek

Average Rating:    (3.8 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 5

Salado Creek Bridge at 1606 between Military Hwy and Rogers Ranch. Either side of the bridge has trail but heading toward town the trail is a labirynth of single track and jeep trail. The trail past Huebner bridge can be picked up just across the new "walking path" so look closely for it. This trail goes ultimately all the way to Walker Ranch Park near West Avenue and is a down and back with smooth sections, baby heads, and technical.
If you go north of the bridge it is very technical

Summary:
Love this trail. Great technical trail that just flows. If you like riding fast and technical, this trail if for you. I would highly recommend riding with someone that rides this trail alot. The first couple of times I rode it I thought is sucked. After riding it more with riders that know which trails to take and where the "spots" are, Saldo rocks. Its my favorite go to place withing a 10 mile radius of San Antonio. It doesn't have alot of downhill or climbing so if that's your thing you might not like it. If you like fast, rocky, rooty technical riding, this trail rocks. Def go withsome one that knows the trails and can fly, you'll probably be dropped the first time you ride it unless you are a really good rider.

Summary:
-This is a straight up trail for trail bikes and F/S. Sure you can run it on a hardtail but why would you. Lots of baby heads and rock. Your basically riding through a creekbed. There are some more technical trails past 1604 but I would not recommend going there unless you have a one of the locals that is familiar with the trails there. MAC and Op are just boring. I hit Salado Creek at least twice a week now and is my go to trail now. This trail has definately improved my riding skills.

Recommended Route:
There is a route that I take that is a loop. You basically go out on one side of the creek and then come back on a trail on the other side of the creek. If you go past 1604 and back to Hardberger Park you get approx 10-11 mile loop.

Summary:
Fun out and back trail within the city limits. Start at the park off of Old Blanco rd. Lots of fast singletrk with some babyheads thrown in for fun. Been out there 2 times in the last month. McAllister gets too crowded and too easy. I live across the street from Op Schnabel and its nice to have Salado for a chg of pace.

Summary:
We should have explored north of 1604. We started at 1604 & went south. The trail was not too difficult to follow. A lot was overgrown & under utilized. Some rocky sections but overall pretty easy. We were there on a beautiful Saturday morning & saw only 2 bike pathers on the trail. Don't start at the school. Start anywhere you can get into the park (see previous review).

Summary:
Sweet trail. The trail has a great smooth fast sections followed by baby heads and technical areas through the creek. DO NOT follow the directions on the description of this trail. It's wrong. That's the way people used to go in before the parking lot and the salado creek greenway park was actually built. I would park at 1021 Voelcker Lane. The name of the park is the Salado Creek Greenway.
this is now my favorite trail within the city of SA. i'm basically sick of mac and op because all the lines are too smooth there. there's lots of twisty areas and little rock gardens her where you have to pick your lines. not much of a cardio fest thou

Recommended Route:
When you get to the park. head down the paved path to after the bridge. There two entrances into the trail. one right at the bridge to the right and another a little further to the ride. follow the trail, down the creek, to huebner rd, go under the bridge, after some double track take a right, follow the single track to 1604 bridge, take a left pass the bridge. lots of technical areas past the 1604 bridge. i've got a google map if you want it. email me.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
OP, Mac, Comfort, Government Canyon, Olmos Basin, 700 acres (yes it's still open)
