70th Street Trail

offers a challenge

July, 2020 by grimmchaz79

All depending on wether you take this one north, or south it offers a decent challenge on the inclines.

Tierra Williamsburg Trail

love the scenery

July, 2020 by grimmchaz79

This is one of my favorites because of the winding paths, and scenic areas. A peaceful ride with some ducks, and geese normally enjoying the day as well.

Old Cheney Road Trail

it does the job

July, 2020 by grimmchaz79

Not my favorite; but I use it to connect my longer rides.

Accordion

Helen Boosalis Trail

my most used trail

July, 2020 by grimmchaz79

I like the accessibility of this trail. The wide path, and easy inclines make for a nice trek to start my longer rides on.

Zorinsky Lake Trail

Needs Redone

July, 2020 by crackerjack4255

I’ve ridden around 800 miles on this trail because it’s close to my house and it’s an asphalt surface that has many divots and roots that have grown through it. Not the best surface for bikes.

Indian Creek Trail (IA)

New rider~ trying to experience local trails

June, 2020 by arellano.marti

Indian Creek Trail- it’s ok. Very flat and quick ride! Great to add on miles to the Manawa Trail.

Skyline Trail (NE)

Mostly asphalt, mostly wide, mostly in good condition, and stretches of shade. For those who live near it's a nice and convenient walking and bike path. For inline skaters and skate boarders beware all the gravel.

Standing Bear Lake and Recreation Area Trail

love this trai

June, 2020 by icfreewithkimberly

This is my go too bike trail as it has small hills for a great first time biker. The view is beautiful with lakes and nature.

MoPac Trail (Springfield)

No improvements

June, 2020 by dschuetz

Just tried riding this trail again hoping there would be some improvement. Some areas aren’t terrible but some places are very difficult to ride through. Just north of Heron Bay there is huge crushed rock on the trail. Not even good for hybrid bikes! And so unsafe. It could be such a fun and popular trail.

Big Papio Trail

Nice paved trail

May, 2020 by murray_ben

Nice trail but not that scenic. Mix of underpasses and parks. Great if you live nearby but don’t go out of your way.

Tierra Williamsburg Trail

beautiful hidden trail

May, 2020 by lrmartinez78

Loved the hidden rivers and the work out stations! So enjoyed my walk/run!

Murdock Trail

City and Country

May, 2020 by mwolfenet

-The West end of Murdock Trail begins mid-Lincoln, connecting to the Dietrich Trail at 48th street. Going East it's a paved surface. At Touzalin street it switches to Lincoln's first 10 ft wide concrete with 4 ft wide limestone surface beside it. Allows a soft surface for runners and paved for bikers with generous room to pass. At 70th St it switches to a mix of limestone and concrete running parallel to Mahoney city park. At 84th St. the overpass takes you out into the country for a serene ride with shade off & on, many birds singing, a bridge with steps down to the stream below, past alpaca's grazing in a pasture to 84th st. It's a gem of a trail, I only wish it went farther but grateful it's available to us.
