MoPac Trail East

Great Trail!! Worth the stop!!

September, 2022 by luv2biketoo

44.3 miles out and back. Beautiful ride through cornfields and trees… Good amount of shade. The only downside is no water available on the trail so make sure you have plenty!

White River Trail

Steamboat Trace Trail

September, 2022 by kent corbin

from brownsville to peru is now open. they have put down a layer of crushed rock on several miles-from brownville north for about 2 miles- and it is very soft. will be until it rains to help pack it. probably not great for skinny tires

Cowboy Recreation and Nature Trail

Don't bother

August, 2022 by davidshuey

I had an outfitter drop me off in Ewing so I could ride 50 miles back to Norfolk. (wind coming dirctly from the east in my face...my bad). I encountered two bridge washouts. One had a detour sign to leave the trail but no sign on how or when to get back on. The second east of Neligh had no sign and no warning causing a 2 mile double back. There was also a trail washout section again with no warning. The other issue that made this ride less than ideal was that they had laid down about 20 miles of new pea gravel but had not tampted or rolled it so it was like riding in sand. The local big industrial farmers use this trail as their own private tractor highway leaving ruts for most of the section I rode (despite knowing that they are not permitted). In frustration, I left the trail and rode RT 275's nice shoulders for the rest of the trip. Also, if you're looking for scenery, skip this trail.

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.

Salt Creek Levee Trail

They just got done with the new underpass under Rosa Parks Way. Shorter path, and lot nicer than having to go over to 1st Street.

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!

June, 2022 by darrellhute

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.
