The Mission Riverwalk Hike and Bike Trail may temporarily close due to high water. Click here to go to the Mission Riverwalk Hike and Bike Trail page.

Did You Know?

Mission San José grist mill grinds wheat and not corn.

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.
