(December 4, 2023) - The San Antonio Housing Trust and the City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department are pleased to announce the opening of the Red Berry Hike and Bike Trailhead, located on the IH-10 entrance to the former Red Berry estate on the city’s eastside.  The trail connects the Salado Creek Trail segment with the Red Berry Lake, creating a vibrant hub for the community to explore and enjoy.  The Red Berry Hike and Bike Trail represents the final phase of the Red Berry Redevelopment.


The Red Berry Redevelopment Project, undertaken in four transformative phases facilitated by the San Antonio Housing Trust Public Facility Corporation, has revitalized an expansive 85-acre parcel of land, breathing new life into this area of San Antonio. The redevelopment included the restoration of the iconic Red Berry Mansion and new headquarters for The RK Group, the construction of a 330-unit modern mixed income apartment community, the restoration of the Red Berry Lake, and the installation of the now-open Red Berry Trailhead.


The new trail connects to the Howard W. Peak Greenway Trails system. Spanning from the Red Berry Lake area to the scenic pecan orchard and crossing over Salado Creek, the trail provides an immersive experience for hikers and bikers alike. It seamlessly integrates with the citywide trails system and offers a picturesque route for residents and visitors to explore the natural splendor of the region.


The Red Berry Trail's grand opening marks the completion of the ambitious redevelopment project and underscores the City's dedication to providing recreational spaces that promote a healthy and active lifestyle.


The new trailhead is located at 4039  IH-10 Westbound frontage road, San Antonio, TX 78219.  The trailhead is on the left before entering The RK Group Campus main parking lot.
