Overall, the trail was in good shape. A few horse piles, as well as dog droppings, but not horrible. 1 tree branch down, but easily passed through.
I went both ways from the Louisville trailhead by the highway and it was a good ride with some fun bridges.
Easy access from I 80 if you are passing through. Beautiful trail with lot's of rail road history.
Rode from Brayton just past Hamlin and back to Brayton. Was a nice ride but chose to ride on a day with a strong wind from the Northwest. Enjoyed all the farmland and stopping to watch a farmer combine his corn. Will definitely ride this trail again.
The portion between Peru and Brownville has recently been reopened since the 2019 floods. There are portions of extremely loose, fine gravel. Not suitable for thin tires.
Hopefully a few rains and continued traffic will pack the trail.
There are soft spots on the portion between NE City and Peru, as well, but the material is squishier. Seems to be ground up asphalt.
At the end of the day, gorgeous trail that's on the mend from a "500-year" flood.
I agree with the previous post to some extent but didn’t find the trail between Audubon and Exira to be in horrible condition. I liked the 8.5 miles but the biggest issue was the grasshoppers on the trail in the wide open sections! Ugh! But it was a nice flat trail with interesting spots along the ride.
44.3 miles out and back. Beautiful ride through cornfields and trees… Good amount of shade. The only downside is no water available on the trail so make sure you have plenty!
The Historic Trails Center at the southern end of the trail was not open when I did the trail in mid Sept. No parking available. However, lots of parking available at the Council Bluffs Recreational complex about 1/2 east on the same road and there is a nice bike trail that connects to the Riner Front Trail.
from brownsville to peru is now open. they have put down a layer of crushed rock on several miles-from brownville north for about 2 miles- and it is very soft. will be until it rains to help pack it. probably not great for skinny tires
A nice ride. The hub is a good place to start.
We took electric scooters and did 16miles of this trail was so beautiful seen 6 deer 5 turkeys will glad go back and explore more
I truly love this Trail.
