MoPac Trail (Springfield)

Getting Better

May, 2022 by gvpille

Was a little scared by previous reviews, but seems this trail is getting better. I would definitely not go on it with anything less than 700x38c. Still sections of deep gravel you can fishtail on. Hopefully the let some trees grow around this for shade and wind protection. Rode from Schram street to across the river--approx. 15 miles. Be prepared for wind.

Prairie Queen Trail

Great for Beginners

Getting back into cycle after having a baby and it was nice, smooth riding and not overly challenging.

Oak Creek Trail

A worthwhile experience

April, 2022 by dianalim

Oak Creek Trail is still closed just north of Valparaiso which was not posted on the info kiosk in Valparaiso. Better to start at County Rd. 30 if heading northward. Beautiful trail. Largely wind protected with embankments and trees. The horse trail alongside occasionally crisscrosses the fine gravel trail which was in good shape for this early spring ride. Restrooms were not open. North of Loma we encountered >20 mph winds which were gusting to 36 mph which added a significant challenge. But it was a pretty ride and worth the effort.

Goldenride

Sept 2021! Rode from Lincoln and the trail was in great shape! A bridge was out so there was a slight detour, but it kicked us into some gravel through some scenic Nebraska farms. We ended the day in Beatrice at Chatauqua Park. Slept in the park and rode back into Lincoln the next day. Great event GREATtrail!!!

MoPac Trail (Springfield)

No thank you

Yucky trial. We rode from Springfield out to South Bend. Deep gravel that was unsafe to ride on and lots of dog poop. We will not be back.

Omaha Riverfront Trail

Disappointing

October, 2021 by thejake91739

After starting from the Lewis and Clark National Historic Headquarters and Visitor Center, we bicycled across the awesome Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, rode the Iowa Riverfront Trail, and then crossed back to ride the Omaha Riverfront Trail.
I'm sorry to say it was less than impressive. We traveled from Southern California to experience the bridge and bike trails on both sides of the Old Muddy, and Omaha really let us down. There were some great views of the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge and the mighty Missouri River, but due to construction the downriver portion of the trail past the Lewis and Clark center was closed off!
Heading upriver was just as disappointing. After a mile or so the trail just comes to an end at a restaurant parking lot. We were tempted to ride through the parking lot, get on Abbott Drive to find where the trail eventually resumes, but these two senior citizens didn't particularly want to share the road with two ton vehicles whizzing past us.
OMAHA: We look forward to coming back when all of three sections of your Riverfront Trail are a connected Class IV Bikeway and construction free!

Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge

A Great Way to Spend a Sunday Morning!

October, 2021 by thejake91739

The wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip bicycling from the Nebraska side to Iowa and eventually back over on this awesome suspension bridge in October. Plenty of photo ops, pedestrians, and joggers!
Bicyclists: Plan on riding Omaha's Riverfront Trail and Iowa's Riverfront Trail on either side of the bridge to make a day of it! Council Bluff's Tom Hanafan River's Edge Park is especially cool with its large grassy areas, trees, and sculptures!

Iowa Riverfront Trail

The Views of the Downtown Omaha Skyline Are Nice

October, 2021 by thejake91739

On a glorious Sunday morn in early October, my wife and I crossed the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge from Omaha into Council Bluffs to experience the Iowa Riverfront Trail.
On a vacation from Southern California to ride our bikes in ten states, I'm sorry to report that this trail was nothing to write home about.
In all fairness, the bridge is awesome, the Tom Hanafan River's Edge Park and amphitheater area with it's large grass area, trees and sculptures is pretty cool, and there are some awesome views of Old Muddy and the downtown Omaha skyline, but that's about it for highlights. As soon as you start riding in either direction from the bridge, it becomes somewhat disappointing.
After ignoring the temporary "Keep Off the Trail" sign and barrier , we headed upriver. It was OK with some pleasant Omaha views, but felt a bit sketchy when entering a woodsy area with obvious remnants of some homeless camping. Try to ignore the speeding cars racing by on the freeway.
Going downriver from the bridge was discouraging too. It's not especially picturesque, but you do get to ride through the parking lots of a couple of casinos!
I will concede that at least this is a great, well maintained, flat trail for the locals to work out on.

Wabash Trace Nature Trail
