MoPac Trail East

Lovely Country Ride

August, 2019 by cmc2condit

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.

Murdock Trail

Beautiful Trail

July, 2019 by bbrenton

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.

Salt Creek Levee Trail

Lack Luster But Rides Easy

July, 2019 by bbrenton

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.

Jamaica North Trail

It's all open!

July, 2019 by peg.hart

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!

Steamboat Trace Trail

Beautiful ride

September, 2018 by janet.palmtag

You'll love the timbers, river, and bluffs along the way. Stop in Peru for a coffee then Brownville for a late breakfast or lunch. It's my favorite thing to do.

Keystone Trail

Keystone Trail

I recommend going on a weekday because the trail is pretty crowded friday-sunday. Enjoyable ride away from traffic, but nothing special.

MoPac Trail (Springfield)

old Maddog flyer

September, 2018 by nevmadog

the trail is still a little too deep in gravel north of Springfield, but seems great to me on the stretch from the Sarpy County fair grounds Heron Bay at the Platte river. great ride, lots of shade and saw no dog poop.

Steamboat Trace Trail

Bugs and beef

September, 2018 by pitsy

My husband and I enjoyed riding half of the Steamboat Trace Trail. We started by Nebraska city and rode to Peru. The first half had lots of shade which was nice since it was surprisingly hot and humid for an early September morning. We had to pedal against some wind when we got to the more open area through the fields, but it wasn't bad, and we were grateful for the wind on the way back since the temp. rose into the 80's. This ride will be most remembered for the large number of grasshoppers and woolly caterpillars found on the trail. We enjoyed seeing lots of monarchs too. Besides bugs, we did come across 2 angus cows and a calf that found their way over or under the fence and onto the trail. I suspected that this could be a possibility since I saw a cow pie on the trail on the way to Peru. I grew up on a farm so I wasn't too concerned and knew they would move out of the way, but thought I would give future bicyclists a heads up. The trail was in good shape for the most part. Every now and then we would encounter a section with rocks instead of crushed limestone so we had to watch where we were going. The only other thing to look out for is a few areas where they put metal poles so vehicles won't drive on the trail include a base for a pole, but no pole is in place.

South Omaha Trail

Nice Trail

September, 2018 by bojanskimj

I enjoy the trail, as long as the city keeps the grass/weeds cut. Be on the look out for broken glass in the area near 42nd & D st.
And yes be careful crossing at 50th St...I can say someone runs the light almost everytime I used the lights.
It would be nice if there was a bench between 50th-42nd St.

Chief Standing Bear Trail

A wonderful ride

August, 2018 by godsgalleon616

We rode this trail completely. We started at Beatrice, NE, and rode south to the Blue River trail, then down into Kansas, the returned the next day. We saw deer, hawks and small birds, Racoons, turkeys and more on this trail. There is one stretch of trail that is a mile or so lone, that is rather straight and a bit boring, the rest of the trail is great. I would recommend this trail to . anyone

Omaha Riverfront Trail

Middle = Confusing, North = Nice

August, 2018 by negangardo

Skated the middle section and had the same problem as everyone else with getting lost. Needs way more signs. The northern section was very nice though! Nice views of the Missouri River and Carter Lake that overshadow the not-so-nice views of an oil refinery, wastewater plant, and trailerpark. I skated from the Carter Lake trailhead in the south to the top of the big hill near Ponca Road. Beware of gravel and sticks that cover the pavement in a few areas.

West Papio Trail

Beautiful Ride

July, 2018 by jeltonj

Smooth and beautiful ride. I took it to Harrison Street before heading back due to weather conditions. I enjoyed the quiet, scenic views with very little traffic noise, a few airplanes and mostly calm peaceful riding amidst the soy beans and the corn fields.
