1. Trail to the Chief: River Walk Expansion
Mission Reach is the moniker of the eight-mile expansion of reclaimed waterways just south of the city. Unlike downtown’s familiar River Walk lined with shops and tourists, this space is all things great outdoors — hike a trail, ride a bike (available for rental at several kiosk locations), or bring your own kayak to take in the sights including birds, fish, and native vegetation.
