Spirit Reach

Spirit Reach

The Spirit Reach includes a series of trails to connect the existing reaches of the San Antonio River experience (San Antonio Missions, the Riverwalk, Pearl District, and Brackenridge Park) to the University of Incarnate Word, The Blue Hole, and The Headwaters Sanctuary. The project includes a safe crossing under Hildebrand Ave. to provide the final missing connection between Brackenridge Park and The Blue Hole and the headwaters of the San Antonio River. The project also celebrates the Native American history associated with the San Antonio River. The project will combine the use of public and private lands to connect significant nature sites and promote public appreciation and enjoyment of the city’s natural and cultural heritage.
