Murdock Trail

OK Trail

July, 2024 by adsaxs

We are RVers and were staying at the Sandhills Global Event Center at North 84th and Fremont. The Murdock Trail was right behind the event center so we decided to take a ride. There is an entrance to the trail from the west campground. We have hybrid bikes.

We headed west on the trail. The first section of the trail from the event center to the 84th Street overpass was limestone surface. Some of the surface was fine but there were sections that were deeply rutted, muddy and deep limestone to the point of being annoying and unsafe if cycling too fast. As we continued on the surface improved.

We continued on and connected to the John Dietrich Bikeway.

Overall, the Murdock Trail was OK; nothing special. Flat, partially shaded, through residential and industrial areas but it was good to get out and enjoy the sunny day.

Antelope Creek Trail

Pleasant trail

May, 2024 by ksteen1

Nice for biking and walking. Passes by a playground and some scenic woodsy areas as well as some residential. Not a very challenging trail in terms of hills.

Blue River Rail Trail

I’d highly recommend this trail.

One of my favorites!

Blue River Rail Trail

I road this trail in September while driving cross country. Great trail long and straight with lots of farming activity during harvest season. Surface would handle road bikes. Great for gravel bike s. Marysville is a good town to explore.

Chief Standing Bear Trail

Scenic quiet amazing

September, 2023 by james.scott.ross

We planned this trip ahead but got out of lincoln late Friday on a rainy september evening. It was cloudy and raining lightly when we set out south on bikes from the beatrice trail head.

The sunset beneath the low clouds was full of vibrant colors backlighting the early fall color in the trees.

That feeling when you are looking down a breathtaking view of peaceful woodlands In the crisp clean cool air is magical. The solitude we had due to weather added to our sense of adventure and we instantly knew we would treasure the experience.

We were only able to ride to road 34 before darkness was setting in and the amount of water in the turf made the fine sandy limestone surface soft enough that our speed was reduced about 5 mph.

The sandy mud got everywhere and we all had mud rooster tails when we returned in total darkness.

The bridges and the views down creeks draws and gullies were amazing and the cornfields in the clearings were a nice golden contrast in the waning light.

The surface was slushy and we slid around a little but no issue for experienced riders.

Under canopy on a cloudy night is very dark and we had our lights on full bright to help avoid all the frogs coming out as darkness set.

Saw a few distant wildlife but not sure what it was, too far away and too dark but it's out there.

Amazing smooth trail with gentle grades and low risk of rough spots. The bridges are well kept surface and the trail head and facilities were pleasantly perfectly clean.

We will go again when trees have more color this fall.

MoPac Trail East

Close to the Omaha Metro - Nice Trail!

May, 2023 by bikrgurl

Parked in the new trailhead in Wabash NE complete with toilet facilities and gravel lot for 20 cars. Rode to Eagle and back. Clean and beautifully maintained crushed gravel trail. Nice bridges. You could probably ride a road bike on it because it was fairly smooth. I rode a mountain bike and my friend had a hybrid. Appx 27 mi round trip. Less than a 40 min drive from Omaha and 45 from Council Bluffs IA.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great Allegheny Trail southeast of Pittsburgh?

April, 2023 by eshawger

Surprised to see this amazing trail that has great bed and breakfasts along it is not noted as part of the Great American Rail Trail. It sure would help demonstrate more GART completion if it was.

MoPac Trail East

Regular events, great scenery, new trailhead at Wabash

April, 2023 by traillink user

Nice trailhead now open at Wabash.
This is a great trail, easy to ride, very scenic, many small friendly towns along the way. Well packed, crushed limestone.
Every Tuesday May - September is the "Nacho Ride" to Eagle.
6 Thursdays in the summer "The Pie Ride" to Elmwood happens
Details are at bikecasscounty.com
Best news: project to complete "the gap" from Wabash to South Bend is started. At each end there is a kiosk with a map of the interim route which is on low traveled gravel roads and a country highway.

Great Trail!! Worth the stop!!

September, 2022 by luv2biketoo

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!
