Standing Bear Lake and Recreation Area Trail

car window broken

August, 2020 by h7x4s8vye3

8/7/20 walked 2 1/2 hours. Parked at 132/fort lot. Rear car window broken and purse stole. Purse was hidden under a blanket. Smashed and grabbed.

Chief Standing Bear Trail

Will do it again!

August, 2020 by bryancindee

We were really impressed by this trail. Most of the 15 miles we rode out of Beatrice and back were wooded with shaded areas, so both the wind and the sun were tempered. The trail surface was great for our mountain bike tires, and I think most road bikes would be fine also. We really appreciated the beautiful rest areas with clean, usable restrooms. We’ll return to do the entire trail soon!

Steamboat Trace Trail

Very disappointed to find that the entire trail is closed due to extensive flood damage and is expected to remain closed for 2020.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.

Huntington Park Trailway

It's a nice asphalt trail. Half of it runs through a nice quiet neighborhood and the other half runs through a quiet, shady park. It's one long, but gradual hill. The trail connects to the West Papio Trail.

Westin Hills Trail

Smooth wide asphalt. There's a break in the trail for a few blocks you have to use the sidewalks to connect the 2 parts. The trail links to the 144th St. Trail which links to the Standing Bear Lake Trail, so in the end this can be nice hike.

Flanagan Lake Trail

Nice wide asphalt. Lightly traveled unlike the other trails around area lakes. No shade, be sure you bring suntan lotion for this 5 mile hike.

Pheasant Ridge Trail

Great trail

July, 2020 by scottmcknz

Great concrete trail that goes along the NW side of Harlan County Lake. West end of trail starts just off of US Hwy 183 in Alma and the east end is at Methodist Cove campground/boat dock. Trail is relatively flat, just some minor hills, very easy ride/walk. Many benches along the trail overlooking the scenic views of Harlan County Lake. Wildlife is also very prevalent along this trail. I have witnessed rabbits, squirrels, deer, pheasants, fox, turkey, turtles, deer, raccoon and even a very small lizard.

Wehrspann Lake Trail

Great trail

July, 2020 by scottmcknz

This is a great trail around Lake Wehrspann. Many benches along the trail and scenic views along the lake. There is a trail that goes around the entire Lake that is about 6 miles, but also a cut-off that will take a couple of miles off it that is would you would like. So between the 2 smaller loops or the complete around-the-lake loop, you should be able to find a distance that is suitable for you.

70th Street Trail

offers a challenge

July, 2020 by grimmchaz79

All depending on wether you take this one north, or south it offers a decent challenge on the inclines.
