This is the Leon Creek Greenway paved trail. Though not wild, it's a pretty nice getaway in the city

Description

There are multiple trailheads where you can start/stop along this paved trail. The Valero Trailhead starts from loop 1604, and if you continue all the way to the Ingram Trailhead, you can get just under 13 miles one-way. Or do an out and back for the long distance runner. There is ample parking at both the Valero and Ingram trailheads. There are a number of water fountains along the way at other trailheads, so you don't need to carry a bunch of water with you. A handheld water bottle usually does me just fine.

Other trailheads with parking are the Grissom Trailhead, Whitby Rd. Trailhead, Rohde Park Trailhead (on Babcock Rd.), Bamburger Park Trailhead (also on Babcock), and Hausman Trailhead. All of these have a water fountain except Bamburger.

There is not much elevation gain or loss on this trail, and it is fairly shaded. This paved trail definitely makes you forget you are in the city for a while, and you can usually spot a lot of deer along the way.

For the more adventurous, check out the singletrack trails that follow along the paved sections. I usually take a side adventure on these and they are great. But the paved section is nice if it has been raining and you don't feel like getting muddy.
