The first mile of the Dannebrog Trail, which completely encircles the town known as the Danish Capital of Nebraska, was paved in late September 1993. The trail runs along and around an abandoned Union Pacific rail line.
Owned by the village board of Dannebrog, the trail provides children with a safe place to ride their bikes and a place for residents of the community of all ages to exercise or enjoy a leisurely stroll. But the trail is not only popular within Dannebrogit has been estimated that at least half the trail users come from out of town.
The main portion of the loop trail is surfaced with concrete, but a popular spur leads walkers on a woodchip-surfaced nature trail through historic Hannibal Woods.
Parking and Trail Access
Dannebrog is only 29 miles from Grand Island; take US 281 north from the city to State Route 58 to get to the village. There are no dedicated parking lots for the Dannebrog Trail, so park your car on local streets. As always, be mindful of any parking restrictions and the property of the town's residents.

Wonderful community asset
My wife and I walk the Dannebrog trail at least 3 times a week during good weather and less frequently during poor weather. We moved to Dannebrog because of the trail and try to say thanks by picking up any litter we find along the way.
