Steamboat Trace Trail

Some TLC

September, 2017 by billbrockman

As others have said, this nice trail needs some care. A fallen tree partially blocked one spot and branches lay everywhere. Also, the signs say "closed during firearms hunting season" but don't say when that might be, just a number to call.

Overall though, it's a good trail, not too rough and very peaceful and scenic.

Wabash Trace Nature Trail

Favorite trail

September, 2017 by katzsteel

I really like this trail. It's very well maintained and a pleasure to ride even in hot weather. It's one of the few trails that has a canopy of trees for miles. It is my favorite for a reason. I've been on it a lot this summer and will continue to ride it. I never tire of it. It's that good.

Steamboat Trace Trail

Pretty, but a little rough

September, 2017 by katzsteel

We started the trail in Peru, NE. The trail hasn't been very well maintained and had branches, ruts, and washout all the way down to Brownville. I didn't mind, but my wife thought it was a harsh ride, so beware. We both rode mountain bikes. This is no trail for skinny tires. I enjoyed it as it had some nice scenery but the end was kinda of anti-climactic, so we just turned around and went back. We will probably do the route from Ne City to Peru and see if the trail is in better shape. Note, if you've ever done wabash trace, this is not maintained nearly as well. We met a couple on recumbents, and wondered how they would fair further down the trail. I've uploaded several pics from the visit.

Steamboat Trace Trail

Great scenery

September, 2017 by lochs4

We rode the trail from Brownville to Peru. There were bluffs, trees, the Missouri River and farm fields. It was an enjoyable ride. There were some washed out spots and rough parts but they were manageable. The Peru trailhead has modern bathrooms that were clean. An overall enjoyable ride. The next day we rode from Nebraska City about 6 miles and back. This part of the trail was in better shape but you do have to ride about 1/2 mile on a gravel road to get to the trail. The trailhead does not have a bathroom or water.

Steamboat Trace Trail

Could be nice trail but....

August, 2017 by bnbinns

My wife and I rode this trail recently while in the area. The trail is in desperate need of maintenance and cleanup. Tree branch debris can be found throughout the Trail. This debris wasn't from a recent storm but had obviously been building up over a long period of time. It was apparent the Trail sees few riders as in some areas the grass had completely overgrown the path. We spent a few hours riding the entire trail without encountering a single rider. Would not recommend till conditions improve.

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.

nice nature walk

Nice path for my pup and me!

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.
