Cowboy Trail

August, 2022 by torstenelsholz

Rode the trail in 6+ days, nice trail, very maintained, gravel only. Watch out for "puncture vines" must have spare tubes or tires or change from tubeless to tubes. Pack up! Beautiful out there. Don't expect too many people riding. Water up with hydration, not too many choices for refilling. Super hot in June/July. I enjoyed the ride a lot. If you prepare the ride, you find every 30+ miles a good place to sleep.

Chief Standing Bear Trail

What a treat!

June, 2022 by smith.ge.dr

Passing through from western Colorado, only time for a short ride south of Beatrice. Perfect 80 degree day, shaded tree canopy, birds singing, smooth crushed stone pavement, no hills. Who says you need a gnarly Colorado single track and a 2000 feet of elevation gain to have fun. Chief Standing Bear Trail put a grin and smile on my face. Only complaint was the miles were too few.

MoPac Trail East

My Favorite Trail!

I truly love this Trail.

Lake Cunningham Trail

Awesome Trail!

June, 2022 by digitalrevguy

8’ wide NEW concrete at 6.4 miles long with beautiful scenery, slight elevations, great picnic spots and easy access! The “C” is a great addition to the Omaha trail system!

Lake Cunningham Trail

1st time - LOVE this trail!

June, 2022 by digitalrevguy

I’m still a relative new comer to this trail thing (e-biking), but have been to the “C” twice and really like it. The trail is a nice new eight foot wide. The scenery is beautiful and for me the distance (6.4 miles) is perfect. It’s largely flat with just a few spots of slight elevation making it perfect for almost any rider. There are many beautiful spots to stop to hydrate or perhaps even lunch. 3 parking lots make access super easy. This is a great addition to the Omaha trail system.

Jamaica North Trail

Trail is open now, closed in a few spots for construction, but this has been completed. No blocked spots.

Johnson Lake Hike and Bike Trail

Nice paved trail.

May, 2022 by neilrisinger

The Johnson Lake Trail has two 4-mile sections of dedicated biking trail. The trail is mainly flat with a few hills that are manageable. You have two sections that you are on the asphalt road that does not have a shoulder. But each section is less than a mile. 4 stars because of the shared roadway. Hopefully in the future they have a bridge over the lake unlit like they have over the outlet.

Cowboy Recreation and Nature Trail

Giddyup and get your Cowboy on!

May, 2022 by 7s5a692x35

May 22 – 24 2022 The entire Trail from East to West

Day 1 Norfolk to O’Neil 80 miles
Day 2 O’Neil to Bassett 50 miles
Day 3 Bassett to Valentine 65 miles

The Trail was in good condition with very, little vegetation in the middle of the trail for the duration for late Spring. There are plenty of soft spots (deep gravel) that wider tires (used 50cm) are highly recommended for the Trail.

If you are riding the entire Trail, there are multiple detours along the route. The issue is that some are not marked well until you get to where for example, a bridge is washed out and it says closed as you reach the river and you must backtrack. The detour puts you on a busy highway with plenty of traffic mostly with large trucks. Since the Cowboy follows the highway for a majority of the Cowboy, we learned that once the obstacle was bypassed, we would just join back onto the trail which in most cases was a football field in distance to return to the Trail.

Treat all transitions with caution that includes all roads, driveways and bridges that crosses the trail as each may have challenges to include drop-offs, soft and deep sand plus up to 6” to get back up on the trail.

You may want to take into consideration the winds for the timeframe of your ride because you are exposed as the limited trees along the trail do little to help block the wind. 2 out of 3 days it was a direct headwind of 10+ knots. Also, going from East to West is a steady 1 to 2% climb.

We chose the Spring time frame to avoid the possibility of the dreaded sand burrs but we did have several occurrences of the burrs being imbedding in our tires. Luckily, we were running a tubeless tire setup with a sealant we have been using for years and after removing a burr, it quickly plugged the leak and we continued on with our journey.

Throughout the length of the Cowboy, there was some sort off wildlife digging holes mostly on the sides of the trail but some were in the middle of the trail and quite large. It was difficult to see the severity of the hole until you were almost on it.

As you approach each town on the trail, there is a sign announcing the name off the city and distance to the next one. As you are departing that town, there is another one along the trail.

Near Bassett, keep your eyes in the pastures adjacent to the trail as you might see wildlife of not the indigenous type but more of the exotic kind – 2 camels and a zebra!

MoPac Trail (Springfield)

Getting Better

May, 2022 by gvpille

Was a little scared by previous reviews, but seems this trail is getting better. I would definitely not go on it with anything less than 700x38c. Still sections of deep gravel you can fishtail on. Hopefully the let some trees grow around this for shade and wind protection. Rode from Schram street to across the river--approx. 15 miles. Be prepared for wind.
