Interesting to see the historic buildings and learn of their background. Would loved to have rented one of the rental bikes available on site, but at $12 per hour and an extra $2 per half hour after that, we found it to be too expensive....More

This trail is absolutely beautiful! It runs along the river so you get to see lots of different animals. You can hike, bike, or jog but you MUST try this trail!

You could use Uber to get from one mission to next but best way would be to rent a bike

First timer! We (adult couple) only have half a day to explore the Mission Trail. Which stretch will be most recommended for biking? I was thinking mission Espada to mission San Jose and back? Is B Cycle my best option if we are only renting for 2-3 hours? Thanks!
