HOWARD W. PEAK GREENWAY TRAILS SYSTEM

Hiking and biking along the Howard W. Peak Greenway trails is a great way to get fit and enjoy the outdoors. The ever growing network of multi-use  trails wind through natural landscapes along San Antonio creeks. Currently 52.6 miles of developed greenway trails are now open for your riding, walking and running pleasure. San Antonio residents are flocking to the greenways for their beauty, the opportunity for family fun, and for fitness.

These linear parks consist of approximately 1,400 acres of creek-side open space.

The Linear Creekway Parks Development Program, which provides sales tax funding for the land purchases and trails development, was approved by voters in 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2015. 

Trails are now either built or planned for many of San Antonio’s creeks, including the Salado, Leon, Huebner, Huesta, Culebra, Alazan, Apache, Martinez, San Pedro and the Medina River.


Former Mayor Peak began formulating the idea of a "ring' of hike and bike trails in flood zones along city-owned creeks while working in the Planning Department and while serving on the Zoning Commission. As a City Councilman representing District 9 from 1993 to 1997, he partnered with Councilman Lyle Larson to purchase the land which began the Salado Creek trail system in Walker Ranch Historic Landmark Park.

As mayor from 1997 to 2001, he solidified his vision of hike and bike trails along Leon and Salado Creeks and won citizen support to dedicate one-eighth of a cent of the sales tax to begin development of the trail system in partnership with the Edwards Aquifer Program.
