Getting Around - Auto, Bus, Hike, Bike
Roadways connect each site in this mostly urban park. The Mission Riverwalk has a driving route from downtown to Mission Espada, the southernmost mission site in the park. Complete signage is not in place, so ask at each site for directions to the next mission.
The Mission Riverwalk Hike and Bike Trail may temporarily close due to high water. Click here to go to our Hike and Bike Trail page.
Physical Location of Each Mission
Mission San José
Did You Know?
San José's grist mill in San Antonio Missions National Historical Park never ground corn, only wheat? The mill was built late in the mission period; by then the mission Indians had acquired a taste for wheat-based foods. Today the mill is mostly a reproduction, and is in operation five days a week.
