Oak Creek Trail

Has one section closed. About the second mile out from Valparaiso. We by passed by taking a two mile detour on steep gravel roads. Also can get to it off of 66, but that is one long hill up.

Shoemaker Trail

Safe and well maintained

June, 2021 by dsglunz64

There is lots of maintained green space, only a short block parallels busy road. Several benches if needing a break. Easily accessible parking at nearby churches and schools. At crosswalk, my dog and I waited but the traffic stopped and allowed us to pass!

West Papio Trail

Look forward to extension to Flannagan Lake trail

May, 2021 by kjbusacker

I love riding the West Papio, both north and south from Zorinsky Lake, where i usually connect. The north end is more scenic with trees. It's a shame the West Papio does not connect yet to Flannagan Lake. I see they are working on the Cleveland Blvd road, so that should be a solution once done.

Platte River Connection

Still closed as of April 24th 2021

April, 2021 by joel_ratliff2000

Closed for several years now. We saw the entrances in South Bend wired up and signs saying stay out but then members of the Middle island community using the bridge as their leisure ground. So basically it’s gated access to keep everyone out except those who live on Middle Island.

Pioneer Spirit Trail

Wide, new concrete.

April, 2021 by gary.pslmer3

Read somewhere that Hastings rcvd a Green Town award. The Pioneer Spirit is a linked set of trails, mostly quiet enough to hear the birds. Runs by a college and at least three parks. Then on into town. I also rode a new segment from my hotel out into cornfield territory, where the sky is enormous!

Great American Rail-Trail

best trail ever

March, 2021 by tpassarelli_tl

wonderful trip across America

Zorinsky Lake Trail

Beautiful trail to walk and run. Gorgeous trees and water. We see many deer everytime we go winter or summer. We've even seen coyotes, eagles, bull snakes and many water fowl. Terrible for biking because of the bad asphalt and so many walkers.

Nice concrete trail all around the lake. About 4 miles easy grade. It’s nestled in a neighborhood. Can eat at Caniglias pizza afterwards!

Kearney Hike and Bike Trail

Cottonmill Double track Trails: Old fathers Trail

A great, flowing, double track trail that allows great views of Platte Valley.

Standing Bear Lake and Recreation Area Trail

nice easy walk

November, 2020 by pksmith963

Nice walking or biking trail. Even better now that the floating bridge is completed so you don’t have to ride on 144th.

Walnut Creek Lake Trail

wonderful place!

October, 2020 by teganzp

Nice peaceful walk with nature. Wonderful lake and families taking advantage of it! Everyone should visit Walnut Creek Recreation
