144th Street Trail

meh…frequent rider, wouldn’t go out of my way for it though

April, 2024 by hbwjwjtrhj

It’s just riding a bike through a city. And not even a scenic, aesthetically pleasing city. Just a bunch of fast food restaurants, neighborhood developments, some schools, strip malls and lakes on each end. If that’s your thing, then ride the whole trail. Personally, I will ride parts of it frequently because it’s convenient and close to home. But it’s not a great trail, more just a bike path along a major road.

Wehrspann Lake Trail

Fun ride to start with

April, 2024 by hbwjwjtrhj

Good for a beginner. I just started riding regularly and this was a good challenge. Has just enough hill climbing to challenge yourself and it also helps you learn how to pace yourself. The path is wide and smooth, has some fun tight turns at the beginning, and spots going downhill where you can get a little speed going. Made for a very enjoyable ride.

Chief Standing Bear Trail

I really enjoy this trail!

One of my favorites!


Wehrspann Lake Trail

Amazing Path

October, 2023 by hkhumphress

We are visiting from Ohio and found this path around the lake. It is awesome! We are participating in a health challenge and the 6.5 miles was terrific! It is an overcast and cool day; it may be hot if the sun is out and it is mid-summer. Fantastic for us though!

Steamboat Trace Trail

Needs work.

October, 2023 by crjdajab_mom

I rode trail from most farthest southern point to Brownville. The trail is not there. Bridge you cross is sketchy. Hopeful that Brownville to Peru is better.

Chief Standing Bear Trail

Scenic quiet amazing

September, 2023 by james.scott.ross

We planned this trip ahead but got out of lincoln late Friday on a rainy september evening. It was cloudy and raining lightly when we set out south on bikes from the beatrice trail head.

The sunset beneath the low clouds was full of vibrant colors backlighting the early fall color in the trees.

That feeling when you are looking down a breathtaking view of peaceful woodlands In the crisp clean cool air is magical. The solitude we had due to weather added to our sense of adventure and we instantly knew we would treasure the experience.

We were only able to ride to road 34 before darkness was setting in and the amount of water in the turf made the fine sandy limestone surface soft enough that our speed was reduced about 5 mph.

The sandy mud got everywhere and we all had mud rooster tails when we returned in total darkness.

The bridges and the views down creeks draws and gullies were amazing and the cornfields in the clearings were a nice golden contrast in the waning light.

The surface was slushy and we slid around a little but no issue for experienced riders.

Under canopy on a cloudy night is very dark and we had our lights on full bright to help avoid all the frogs coming out as darkness set.

Saw a few distant wildlife but not sure what it was, too far away and too dark but it's out there.

Amazing smooth trail with gentle grades and low risk of rough spots. The bridges are well kept surface and the trail head and facilities were pleasantly perfectly clean.

We will go again when trees have more color this fall.

Kearney Hike and Bike Trail

Great Trail Through a Great Town

August, 2023 by jsafret

This was the second stop in our 2023 "Tour de Great Plains & Colorado" bike trip. The trail was in excellent condition, mostly flat and the town of Kearny is the best of America, you really couldn't find better place to stop and ride. It really does seem like the place where you can leave the front door unlocked.

Keystone Trail

Trail Closed at The Mart for sewer repair

August, 2023 by nosliwrenee

There is a detour but you have to cross Dodge Street. Just wanted to share this info with riders. It closed now and will be for 5 months in this section.

Steamboat Trace Trail

August 2023 - Good trail, could be great with a little more maintenance

August, 2023 by lwwrjw93

I read past reviews, and due to negative comments, I chose to ride the trail with a mountain bike. Most (85%) of the trail was in good (crushed limestone) condition, even following a rain the previous day. The only part of the trail that I didn’t ride (turned my bike around) was the portion about 8 miles south of the Nebraska City trailhead (toward Peru). The grass and weeds were so much covering the trail, except for two narrow strips, that the weeds whacked my legs and made the ride uncomfortable. The weeds were waist high. The weeds in this portion of the trail weren’t mowed on the sides either. I heard from another rider that this only lasted for maybe one mile, but since I wasn’t sure at that time I turned around and re-joined the trail (by vehicle) at Peru. After reading past reviews over the years it appears that folks are working very hard to improve this trail with great success. It’s a lovely trail. Uncrowded (I met three other people in two days) and really pleasant terrain. I do think wider tires are more suited (gravel or mtb tires). Thanks to whoever maintains this trail … and please consider mowing or spraying the weeds through the farm field area that was un-mowed. If farmers are mowing the sides and trail in other areas … THANK YOU!

144th Street Trail

Too many major streets to cross

August, 2023 by gustaff1142

This is not my idea of a fun bike trail. Lots of street traffic. You have to cross just about every major east-west street in Omaha.

Whitaker's Way

not maintained

August, 2023 by jdns55

Went to the north end of the trail and there’s no maintenance overgrown with weeds not worth the effort to even drive there.

Sorensen Parkway Trail

Not a bike trail. Mostly pedestrian sidewalk.

July, 2023 by jreitman28

Do not attempt to ride on the sidewalk as much of it is in disrepair. This should not be listed as a trail.
