Prairie Queen Trail

Prairie Queen Trail

December, 2020 by pamela.beranek

Nice concrete trail all around the lake. About 4 miles easy grade. It’s nestled in a neighborhood. Can eat at Caniglias pizza afterwards!

Standing Bear Lake and Recreation Area Trail

nice easy walk

November, 2020 by pksmith963

Nice walking or biking trail. Even better now that the floating bridge is completed so you don’t have to ride on 144th.

Walnut Creek Lake Trail

wonderful place!

Nice peaceful walk with nature. Wonderful lake and families taking advantage of it! Everyone should visit Walnut Creek Recreation

Walnut Creek Lake Trail

Beautiful!

October, 2020 by teganzp

This was my first trail walk since moving to Omaha. It’s a beautiful place which helps you not notice how far you have gone. People walking, jogging, and bicycling— all very polite to everyone else.

Platte River Connection

Closed

September, 2020 by jerryklnk

I got to the east end of the bridge and it was blocked by heavy construction equipment and some workers told me the bridge is closed. Obviously.

Platte River Connection

Bridge closed and barricaded

September, 2020 by Workman

As a ‘through rider’ I had to ride all the way from State Route 50 out SR 31, to find out that the trail to the bridge is closed and the bridge is barricaded. Don’t bother going. It has been closed from flooding since March 2019 and the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District does not seem to be in any hurry to open or repair the bridge. The detour would be to ride the 4 1/2-5 miles back to the SR 50 bridge at Louisville.

MoPac Trail (Springfield)

Highest hopes for this trsil

September, 2020 by gatescreates

This trail let me down running from Springfield. It just ended after 4 miles. No signs, no nothing. Had me running on a dangerous highway with no direction. Never again.

T-Bone Trail

Great ride

September, 2020 by ibradley0415

Four of us traveled to the T-Bone trail early Saturday afternoon and was pleasantly surprised how nice the trail is and accessible it is. We definitely enjoyed visiting the little towns along the way and will be returning again soon.

Steamboat Trace Trail

Rough but Nice Views

September, 2020 by twilightsleep

As of September 2020, signs still state that this trail is closed due to flooding, but the trail is completely dry.

Definitely not a trail for a road bike, but my hybrid bike handled it relatively well. A lot of ruts were repaired with very sharp white stones, though, so it was a rough ride and I never cycled above 10 mph.

At one point the trail is part of a levee above a cornfield. This levee was so thick with crushed stones that my tires kept sinking and I had to push my bike through this part. Finally, I gave up and turned back.

Lovely views complete with turtles, snakes, and frogs crossing the path. Trail needs some care, though.

Burt Street Trail

I've lived in Omaha for 30 years and never knew this route was here. I was able to connect it with side streets and ride from my house near Memorial park to the Bob Kerrey Bridge thus avoiding the major streets with more traffic.

Bellevue Loop Trail

This Trail closed last year following the floods in the spring. It might reopen next year if the levee improvements and trail get completed.

Keystone Trail

keystone trails

September, 2020 by arjuns2007

I always start my biking from democracy park (Keystone trails). This is 15 miles trails. I go there every next day. This trails is not bad for mountain bike but when you ride road bike some concrete slabs are unbalanced that’s why road bike has a problem. If they make it balance, it will help to ride smoothly. Thank you
