Wabash Trace Nature Trail

Rolling Hills

July, 2017 by deliasgotmail

Beautiful, shady trail! The bridges are banked, which I think is very cool. We started at Council Bluffs, and went past Silver City, an adorable, tiny town. Tomorrow, I look forward to starting in Shenandoah on the Wabash-Trace, and heading north.

Pickett trail

July, 2017 by tball1285

I rode the part of the trail from Pickett Road to the Noyes parkway by the rec center and back. The ride was very enjoyable and staff at Rec center was very friendly allowed me to get some water and fill my bottles. great section for new riders.

Steamboat Trace Trail

Pretty but windy

February, 2017 by blairmcian

I previously reviewed this trail from a ride from its southern end, at Brownville, to Peru, NE. This review is of the leg from Peru to just south of Nebraska City. It is an attractive stretch of trail, and the trail itself was generally in good shape. The only negative that keeps me from giving more stars is that much of the trail is exposed to whatever wind may be blowing, and in Nebraska the wind is usually blowing. If it turns out to be a headwind then that is a serious negative. That would be significantly reduced if some windbreaks were planted alongside the trail, especially on the west side since that's where the wind usually comes from.

Wabash Trace Nature Trail

idyllic

September, 2016 by ericdolson

Love this trail. Period. Have enjoyed many a bike ride and long run on the Wabash Trace Trail. Awe-inspiring sunrises, countless deer and Autumn/Winter scenes to rival the best cinematography Hollywood has to offer... have been some of the top reasons I believe this is the best trail in the Greater Omaha/Council Bluffs area. It always feels a little like I'm going back in time when I run this trail; back to a quieter, simpler era. I marvel at the glory of God's creation with every step I take on the Wabash Trace Trail. Whether you enjoy a short hike, a long run or a 100-mile bike ride, you won't be disappointed with this trail!

Wabash Trace Nature Trail

great trail experience

August, 2016 by kcwyks

we're over 60 years old and were looking for a long ride challenge. We completed a 2-day round trip from Shenandoah MP at 362 to Council Bluffs at MP 407 and back, with a motel stay at the Western Inn in Council Bluffs, the closest motel to the trailhead there.

We parked our car near the Depot in Shenandoah, and and began the 44 mile trip on our road bikes on a mild summer day. Stopped for lunch at one of the 2 restaurants in Malvern, about the halfway point for us. The hills are gentle and most of the route is in shade. The trail condition was great- compacted crushed limestone with only a few soft spots and the bridge surfaces and bridge approaches are good. It took us about 5.5 hours of riding each way.

Be sure to purchase the trail pass at the Depot to help pay for maintenance and get a trail map - there's a lot of history displayed in the Depot. As you will see, there are a lot of bridges they must maintain on the trail.

In Council Bluffs to get to Western Inn, its about 1.5 miles from trailhead. Continue on the trail along the high school, cross Harry Langdon Blvd and take the paved path on the campus of Iowa School for the Deaf to the left, it curves around to the right (northeast) near the intersection with highway 92, but you end up at the corner of Valley View and 92. Then you cross 92 and you are on the Valley View bike trail. Go about 3/4 mile to Madison Ave, go left (the sidewalk is on the north side of Madison), and the motel will be on your right after about 200 yards.

Services along this route are limited; in Imogene there is a bar/grill and the town has provided a small camping area with bathroom right next to the trail. Malvern has a grocery store, pharmacy, 2 restaurants. Silver City has a shelter, a bar and a small store that stocks snacks and spare bike tubes right by the trail. Mineola has a restaurant.

From about mile 401 to 404 there is a long grade down into the Missouri river valley at Council Bluffs. This was a well-earned opportunity to coast a while and get some muscle relief. And coming back, we attacked the hill while we were fresh the next morning.

The portion of the trail closest to CB is the busiest, but we went miles without seeing anyone else on the most remote stretches.

There is a way to connect with the trail along the Missouri river levee, and eventually with the Bob Kerry pedestrian bridge over the MO river (which really is worth seeing) into Omaha but we did not figure out how to make the connection as we were too tired. We'll do that on another trip.

Steamboat Trace Trail

Steamboat Trace Ride

June, 2016 by michelledsullivan35

Great flat ride! Only drawback would be lack of service (restrooms) along the trail, but that also makes you feel like you are exploring! Great scenery. Trail can get bumpy at times, so make sure your bike can handle it.

Steamboat Trace Trail

Scenic But In Need of Repair

September, 2015 by blairmcian

The stretch from Brownville to Peru reminds me of the particularly attractive stretch of Katy trail in central Missouri, from Rocheport on to the southeast, with much of it having a tall embankment or bluff on one side and the Missouri River on the other side. Also appealing is that there is a lot of shade in the afternoon and evening. However, I am giving just three stars because as of August 2015 there are a lot of eroded ruts across the trail, requiring frequent slowdowns in order not to get a big jolt on one’s bike. If those were fixed then this could be a four- or even five-star trail. In the meantime, best that you ride a mountain bike or be prepared for an uneven ride.

The bells of Shanendoah

August, 2015 by imahni

I found the trail on this app.  I started in Shanendoah and went north you might want some bug spray for a few miles on the trail.  I saw in less than 10 people for my 13 mile run it was very quiet and peaceful.  Most were on bicycles if you were running.  I found crabapples and BlackBerries along the way and beautiful views of farms.  Shanendoah has a pool so I was able to park there and felt very safe.  This is a beautiful trail and shaded all of the way.  The trail running back toward Shanendoah reminded me of a trail in Germany and Shanendoah had bells ringing from the church it sounded like a Karelian.  And put a nice finish on my first half marathon.

Steamboat Trace Trail

Constantly changing trail and scenery makes this ride interesting.

July, 2015 by godsgalleon616

I parked at the north trailhead just south of Nebraska City. The sign says its ',6 miles to the trail', so add another mile (round trip). if you ride the full trail, which goes a couple miles south of Brownville, you will go (round trip) about 45 miles. if you ride off trail to explore towns or anything....more. The whole trip for me was about 47 miles.

for a rail trail, it does have lots of sudden rises and falls, but none are long. and yes, it does go thru a section of farmland, but this just keeps the whole things interesting. you go thru trees, then corn, the sorta trees, the by the river, then more trees....while the trail is some flat, some bumps and some rises and falls, but all this adds up for a constantly changing, and interesting ride, that keeps giving you something new to experience. I liked it - it was not 47 miles of the same thing after thing after thing.

There is a big shelter at Peru with a ground water pump. There is also a campground there, and stores nearby as others have said.

There is an official 'off trail' picnic area called "Genie Hollow", that is pretty nice, in the trees, near Peru.

Also near Peru is There is a pretty lengthy section of trail that has sand carvings. Most are just names and such, but there are several that are pictures and neat to find. This area is called It is marked with a sign that reads "Roland Sherman Memorial Area". here is a Journal Star link:

http://journalstar.com/news/state-and-regional/govt-and-politics/the-man-behind-the-carvings/article_10f049f5-6602-585e-9ceb-5097cc81da86.html

the ride from Nebraska City trailhead to here is the easiest section. as you get closer to Brownville, I was happier and happier to have used the mtn bike this day. there is upkeep being done to this trail, but since it is in need of rather constant need of repair being where it is, there are things to look out for. a few places have small washouts under the bridges, so be careful on those, and the trail itself has some places where water running off the hill has worn grooves across the trail. having said that, tho, none of them are 'bad'.

the place that made me the happiest to have the mtn bike, was just north of Brownville, where there is lots of fresh crushed limestone on the trail...it was very mushy, and there was lots of it. the skinny tires would have been hard to use here.

I rode to the end of the trail (just a couple miles past Brownville), then came back up to Brownville for lunch, near the steamboat. FYI - the steamboat museum is open from 1pm - 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday. There are picnic tables there at the park (by the steamboat) for lunch.

I gave 4 stars, only due to the maintenance it needs, but that might not be fair, cause this trail is in a location where constant needs are necessary. ...BUT, in a perfect world, we want the maintenance done, so ...4 stars.

Hyde to 29 hwy

October, 2014 by lmoranz

My friend and I biked from Hyde to Pickett and then took Picket back and ended back up on trail. The first part is very challenging. Lots of hills. Last part was very enjoyable. Nice trail but not well marked in places. We wanted to go to Krug but didn't see trail to go that way. Homeless man on bicycle yelled vulgar things at us and awful gestures which scared us to death on the first part of our ride.
It was ok. Not my favorite.
