Even the trails are bigger in Texas

Thank you for following along our accessible hiking series. This week we explore the expansive landscape that is Texas specifically, San Antonio area. Leon Creek Greenway is 18 miles of a concrete paved tranquil trail that is home to many birds and wildlife. What sets this trail apart is that it meanders through several of San Antonio's parks providing a variety of interest and access points.

Leon Creek Greenway is also a great example of finding the restorative benefits of nature, even in urban settings, per University of Minnesota, "One of the most intriguing areas of current research is the impact of nature on general wellbeing. In one study in Mind, 95% of those interviewed said their mood improved after spending time outside, changing from depressed, stressed, and anxious to more calm and balanced."

*Please check out the actual level of accessibility of any trail prior to making plans use them.

Next week we head west to California, stay tuned!

If this is the first post you are reading, I would suggest you also take a peek at our Western North Carolina and Florida trail posts.
