Nice walking or biking trail. Even better now that the floating bridge is completed so you don’t have to ride on 144th.
Nice peaceful walk with nature. Wonderful lake and families taking advantage of it! Everyone should visit Walnut Creek Recreation
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This Trail closed last year following the floods in the spring. It might reopen next year if the levee improvements and trail get completed.
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
I only rode this 5 miles from the TH by the bar “The Rail,” but it was very pleasant. The trail starts out being paved but turns to limestone approximately 1 mile. There were turkeys and their babies within that one mile, which is partially shaded. The trail outside of Beatrice is well shaded for the first couple of miles. This makes for a cool breeze while hammering the pedals. You’ll cross four wooden bridges in those 5 miles, tracing Indian Creek part of the ways. I even spotted a fawn drinking from the creek. The only down side was the brush sticks out too far when crossing the roads. The city need to trim it. I highly recommend surfing Homestead “Express” Trail for a reconnection with nature and a blast into Gage County history!!
Road the section of this trail that starts north of NP Dodge Park and was disappointed. Too much of the "trail" is simply a paved area directly adjunct to the road, so you're biking with cars and motorcycles during a good portion of the trip. And when you're not on the road you're on an overgrown, somewhat dystopian-looking path adjacent to corn fields and farm driveways marked with "Trespassers will be Shot" signs. Not fun.
