Loved the hidden rivers and the work out stations! So enjoyed my walk/run!
-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.
We started in Brownville and the ride up to Peru is terrible! Multiple trees down and very soft areas that made us walk the bikes. We almost turned around at 7 miles. The ride from Peru to Nebraska City was perfect and saved the trail! Only one tree down and the path was in great shape! If would just skip the Brownville to Peru stretch until it gets fixed.
there are no bicycle lanes and the car traffic is crazy. it scares me the way people speed on Sorenson.
I love Rock Island Trail! It is my go-to trail for running. When I am training for marathons, this trail is a perfect location and stretches a length that allows for a really nice long run. I like that it is shady and peaceful, but also that it is so widely used. I feel safe on this trail.
I would like to inquire about the possibility of having a porta-potty option along this trail, perhaps located near the Penny Bridges. There are no year-round bathroom options along this trail north of the gas station at Old Cheney Rd.
This is just a friendly suggestion. I really do appreciate this great trail and all trails in Lincoln!
Today was my first time running on this trail. The pavement was very well kept and it being a Wednesday the trail was not crowded at all- I think I ran past 5 or 6 people. Lots of geese along the creek but they don’t mind you. Overall very good trail and despite being in Omaha it wasn’t terribly hilly!
Easy to walk and parks for kids along the way.
Don't miss out on this wonderful trail!
My husband and I rode Mineloa to Imogene (locals say this is the most scenic part of the trail) in late August. The shady path was really welcoming and peaceful on this sunny warm Iowa day. We were lucky enough to chat with a superb bowtied gentleman, one of the original heroes who advocated to make this path a rail-trail starting in 1988 - and there was much local opposition! This gentleman, now a healthy 74 years old, rides regular and is part of the smashing volunteers on The Wabash Trace Nature Trail.
Thank you Iowa and all those who volunteer to keep this trail sparkling!
We rode from the East part of Lincoln to Elmwood on our "hybrid" bikes (not skinny tires). The trail was basically in good shape, with a few very short rough patches due to the kind of gravel surface and the weather. It is well worth the ride, with lovely and somewhat varied country views and plenty of birds and flowers. The mural in Elmwood is worth the ride up from the trail and the convenience store there will let you buy donuts or ice cream or sports drinks and a pitstop to keep you going.
Recommend parking at 112th and Havelock where the trail begins. There is no parking lot but there is a small pull off where you can get your vehicle safely off the road. Navigate, what can be a messy slippery slope, and you will reach the head of the trail. The arching trees that hang over this trail will make you easily forget you are only in a tiny strip of trees running between two corn fields. The trail is long, flat, and appears to be never ending as you look ahead. Mulberry trees line the sides of the trail and offer a nice treat while exploring the trail in the late spring. Unpaved but fairly easy ridding on a bike. Can be a little muddy after rain but the majority of the surface is fairly compact. Great for a leisurely hike, walking the dog, or going for a jog. Not too heavily used, especially on the far east end. Overall a fantastic trail.
Runs on the west side of downtown Lincoln,from Van Dorn St. in the south, following along the banks of the Salt Creek, and curving east around the north end of downtown.
The trail is all open now. Terrific wilderness bike ride, especially in the morning when you are likely to see wildlife. I saw five (!) fawns just today!
