With over five miles of paved and unpaved trails and a hilltop view of downtown San Antonio off to its south,Eisenhower Park, located on 19399 NW Military Highway, should be called The Hiking Park. On the Saturday we visited Eisenhower, it was hopping with walkers, bikers and hikers, both adults and kids, and dogs of all shapes and sizes.

There are trails for every level of walker and hiker and they’re clearly marked. The park even offers a handy printed trail guide so you don’t get lost.
