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.

Rock Island Old Stone Arch Nature Trail

Well kept and enjoyable

September, 2017 by wilmak

We wanted a new walking experience, and Rock Island Old Stone Arch Nature Trail provided exactly the right amount of walking (did 4 miles out and 4 back) in interesting natural spaces. Great for a vigorous walk or a short bike ride. We're glad we chose the trail for our morning out!

MoPac Trail (Springfield)

Unsafe, too thick, no fun

August, 2017 by dschuetz

We use to ride this trail a lot, but gave up on it after several rides on it this spring and summer, each time thinking that it was going to be in better condition. I even wrote emails and messaged the Papio-NRD a couple times telling them it was unsafe and way too thick to ride. It's Bad from the start on Hiway50/Schramm Road all the way to Springfield and then past Springfield in places. What was once our favorite is now our least favorite.

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.

MoPac Trail (Springfield)

dangerous loose gravel

August, 2017 by dchristensen68

very disappointed in the care of this trail. its like riding in mud. they should take advice from the wabash trace trail caretakers. Not only is it to deep in 95% of the trail the rock they use is to large.
I gave up on riding back and chose to ride back on the roads. and I never like to ride with cars.

MoPac Trail (Springfield)

Very disappointed in maintenance

July, 2017 by jpkomaha

I rode this trail today for the first time this year, between Springfield-Louisville. The south part of the trail, south of Buffalo Road, is covered with limestone which was applied way too thick. This has turned a once good trail into a very unenjoyable ride unless you can plow your way through it. It needs to be bladed. Very sad condition.

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.

144th Street Trail

Beg to Med skill

July, 2017 by cristen_w

Depending upon the portion of this you ride it can be beginner to medium. Pacific to Blondo is fairly flat, but there is the high traffic area of Dodge to cross. Blondo to Fort has some hills which will be better for intermediate riders. Around Standing Bear is mostly flat ride, but windy roads with lots of trees around reduce the visibility and make it more complicated for beginners

MoPac Trail (Springfield)

Way too much gravel and too large of rocks

July, 2017 by sdeloske

We live close to the trail and enjoy riding our bikes on it. This spring they put too thick of gravel on it and way too big of sized rock. You couldn't even ride a mountain bike on it.
So we hit the shoulder on the hiway and get yelled at by motorist driving by to use the trail.
We miss not being able to ride on the trail and are afraid it will be years before we will be able to again.
Very disappointed.
