Wabash Trace Nature Trail

Best Riding Experiences!

March, 2019 by jscreative.us

What I love most about the Wabash, is that it captures all the remote scenery and serenity that I remember from childhood growing up in Kansas, TN, KY and ozark areas. The flora and wildlife on the trail kind of blend that variety with the midwest prairie in a lush and comfortable display of life. I can get to it from my house in Midtown Omaha via a series of local trails, all thrilling through the parks, pit stops, historic downtown shopping, and across the river at the National Parks HQ last even MORE parks, and finally to the Wabash which I am proud to say is a park in itself! I love it for its length and use and find it fun to camp out along near warm summer months when the natural wild secluded atmosphere is blended with distant fireworks and lawnmowers and dogs barking and the dreams of the next small town to stop for an ice cream or cold juice along the journey. I’ve not yet ridden it in Autumn but am prepared to do so this year. It’s been a great opportunity to get in tune with myself and the land and learn about foraging, sustainable resource, and to find happiness as I remain in this community. I hope to meet some amazing people as I travel the Wabash in the future. I also hope for more marked primitive camp zones in shaded safe areas along the trail for future use, and for far many more miles to be added and a link of web across states may be achieved before I am too old to ride much. I am looking forward to the snow melting now and getting back on path as soon as the new green shoots appear and some days off of work allow me to return to this peaceful place.

Wabash Trace Nature Trail

Council Bluffs to Malvern

October, 2018 by erb.jackie

This was an epically gorgeous ride. We started at the trailhead in Council Bluffs. I followed my map to Lewis Central Middle School and then it’s just right south of that and it got us there just fine. We did a day bike and went 22 miles to Malvern. We had stellar Bloody Marys and great food at Classic Cafe. I heard the place across the street had good ice cream too. Then we headed back and stopped in Mineola at Toby Jack’s Steakhouse for a beer. Great little place that is super use to bikers stopping in. Ended up back at the CB trailhead. If 44 miles is too much I think a bike to Silver City and back would be easier and you still get a pretty gorgeous ride.

St. Joseph Riverwalk

beautiful trail to ride or walk

October, 2018 by jmj57751

You’ll love this trail. It goes along side with the Missouri river. Plenty to see and the people are nice.

Urban Trail (St. Joseph Trail System)

Saint Joseph starting at Hyde Park

October, 2018 by colorado29

Be prepared for some steep hills- I was not and ended up walking my bike quite a bit. The trees were in full autumn color and beautiful! The trail was clean and I felt safe alone. Just keep in mind it will be a workout.


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.

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.

Wabash Trace Nature Trail

Wabash Trace is a great ride.

July, 2018 by joebus76

This summer I’ve ridden (1) Flint Hills which I didn’t like at all due to large chunks of tire popping flint rock and poor overall condition, (2) Katy Trail twice which I liked a lot, then (3) Wabash Trace from Council Bluffs to Malvern and back. This was my favorite for trail condition, canopy, and the towns of Mineola, Silver City, and Malvern. I’ll repeat this ride several times this summer getting ready for RAGBRAI.

Steamboat Trace Trail

Worth The Effort

May, 2018 by mednat2

Enjoyed the three different views. River, farm and wooded parts of the trail. If only the sun had been out! Only two minor washouts necessitated our dismounting from our tandem. Ten years ago we would have ridden over them, but with age comes wisdom. Do not miss this trail if you are in the area!! We rode it out and back and enjoyed it very much. Pa. Tandem Team (72 & 69 yrs. old)

Rode CB to Imogene - May 2018

May, 2018 by graced99

Trail from CB to Malvern is great right now. Detour is no big deal - maybe two minutes of dismount and walking. However the trail from Malvern to Imogene when we went was soft - those 13 miles felt like alot longer. However, there was pie in Malvern and that made it better!

Steamboat Trace Trail

Some TLC

September, 2017 by billbrockman

As others have said, this nice trail needs some care. A fallen tree partially blocked one spot and branches lay everywhere. Also, the signs say "closed during firearms hunting season" but don't say when that might be, just a number to call.

Overall though, it's a good trail, not too rough and very peaceful and scenic.

Wabash Trace Nature Trail

Favorite trail

September, 2017 by katzsteel

I really like this trail. It's very well maintained and a pleasure to ride even in hot weather. It's one of the few trails that has a canopy of trees for miles. It is my favorite for a reason. I've been on it a lot this summer and will continue to ride it. I never tire of it. It's that good.
