After dinner, I left Kelly and the kids at the hotel watching the Disney Channel (the highlight of any vacation for this cable-free family) and drove over to Eisenhower Park. A couple miles north of 1604 on NW Military Highway, this San Antonio city park offers a concentrated but satisfying trail running experience.
|The south half of the Hillview Trail. Not too technical, but a steady climb.|
There are some other side trails and connecting trails, as well as a paved trail that goes up the middle of the park to the tower. The paved trail is less than a mile, and definitely wheelchair friendly. Just be careful on the way down!
|Had I arrived a bit earlier, I would have had this view from the top.|
Here's a trail map.
Here's park information.
