Update: Beitel Creek Greenway to run from Thousand Oaks to LBJ
Motorists may have noticed a trail beginning at Thousand Oaks Drive between the Wurzbach Parkway and I-35. On the other end of the 0.6-mile (1-km) segment is the completed, but closed Wurzbach Parkway Trailhead near the Beitel Creek overpass. It is located next to an apartment complex that is undergoing construction. Further analysis found that it is a segment of the upcoming Beitel Creek Greenway of which much of this trail remains in the planning stages.
Noted in the city's 2022 - 2027 Bond Program Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces document, the trail is to run from the Thousand Oaks area to LBJ Park. The city's recommended cost was posted at $13,550,900. This would become another spur to connect LBJ. The other one is a trail to connect the Perrin Homestead near Perrin Beitel Road; a ground-breaking event was held in March 2022.
Earlier conceptualizations called for connecting near the Beitel Creek confluence at Salado Creek near the Oakwell Farms Trailhead on the Salado Creek Greenway. The trailhead is located next to Austin Highway.
Segments like this one are common throughout San Antonio's emerging greenway trails. Just recently, we released an article by Frank Fitzpatrick that addressed completed segments near Joint-Base San Antonio - Lackland. See related article: New trails opened near Lackland.
Another up-and-coming trail is Culebra Creek where only segments have been completed. That trail will eventually connect the Cathedral Rock Trailhead on Grissom Road.
