Pace Bend Park Professional Review and Guide
"The boat ramps are popular, but other than that, this laid-back park on a Lake Travis peninsula is often largely empty. Multiuse trails crisscross the central area (a wildlife preserve) and you’ll likely have them to yourself—though several, designed more for off-road cycling than hiking, are a draw with that crowd."
--Charlie Llewellin and Johnny Molloy, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: San Antonio & Austin (Menasha Ridge Press).
Good walking on asphalt trails. Steep inclines. Trails are shared with bicycles, and people walking dogs. Friendly encounters with other walkers. Quick loop, very enjoyable, easy access and good parking.
I lived in San Antonio for five years from 1989 to 1994 and I never realized this place existed. Maybe it wasn't open to the public then? My husband, 5 year old daughter, and I recently hiked this and found it a very pleasant experience. The trail (we used the paved one because we didn't have much time and have the aforementioned 5 year old) was clean and very accessible for those of limited ability with park benches every few feet. I want to return and try some of the more rugged trails. Highly recommended for a nice little hike and I suggest taking a picnic!
