|South end:||I-410 in San Antonio|
|North end:||at Comal County line|
FM 2696 begins at Interstate 410 at the western fringe of Uptown San Antonio, just east of Castle Hills. The route travels north through north central San Antonio, crossing Wurzbach Parkway and Loop 1604. It then runs along the eastern edge of the Camp Bullis Military Training Reservation. The designation ends just south of the Comal County line; however, Blanco Road itself continues into Comal County to an intersection with SH 46.
FM 2696 was designated in 1961, with a northern terminus at Camp Bullis. Extensions in 1977, 1982, and 1983 brought the route to its current length. In 1995, the portion between IH 410 and Loop 1604 was officially changed to Urban Road 2696 (UR 2696); however, as with other urban roads, TxDOT continues to sign the route with the farm-to-market route marker.
The entire route is in Bexar County.
