Recent Trail Reviews

MoPac Trail East

Great trail

May, 2017 by glhaberman

Have rode the MoPac several times. (It is 7 hours from where I live, but get to Lincoln several times a year.) Started my ride about 5 miles east of Lincoln and rode to Elmwood and back. A few critter holes in a section about 2 miles long, but other than that, trail was in great shape. I started shortly after sun up and saw less than a dozen people on the trail.

Oak Creek Trail

Great ride

May, 2017 by glhaberman

Road from Valparaiso to Brainard and back. We saw about 6 other bikers and a few walkers/joggers. Total of about 10 people the entire ride. Trail is in great shape. Some of the intersections with county roads have a lot of loose gravel, but other than that, no issues. Stopped for a burger and a beer at Husker Bar II in Brainard. Had a great time on this ride.

Kearney Hike and Bike Trail

Ride to the Archway!

May, 2017 by sschwinn

Ride this trail today. It's in great shape.

As per the previous comment, you can't ride to Fort Kearny, but you can ride to the Platte River Road Archway which is worth a stop.

The trail section that curves along the canal is particularly nice.

Homestead Trail

Wonderful Access to Long Rides

April, 2017 by deliasgotmail

Warning: the section from Princeton to Cortland, NE is horrendous. It runs along HWY 77, right next to it. After that it's a beautiful, peaceful trail! There is another section that is kind of cool in midsummer, but sort of boring and long in the spring. It's about 2 miles through a cornfield, after Pickrell, NE. I love the section after that, going to Beatrice, NE. I'm so excited that the Blue River Rail Trail is soon to be connected to the Homestead!!

Jamaica North Trail

I Do Love This One, but

April, 2017 by deliasgotmail

It has been under repair for so long! Once you leave the Jamaica Trail, heading south from Lincoln, you enter the Homestead Trail, which leads to the Blue River Rail Trail, and those are five star trails, because they are beautifully maintained! My Hubby loves the trails in Wilderness Park that you can enter at various points along the Jamaica. Enjoy!

West Papio Trail

Update - Trail reopened

April, 2017 by dougmurphy0

The section of the West Papio Trail between Dodge and Blondo Streets that was undermined by the creek about 18 months ago reopened in early March 2017.

Cowboy Recreation and Nature Trail

Condition depends on where you are

March, 2017 by tadavis1

My son and I drove up from Omaha to Norfolk and on to Long Pine for a biking, hiking, fishing weekend. Only rode the trail from Norfolk west for 5 miles, about halfway to Battle Creek. That part of the trail was very nice - 2 miles of concrete and 3 miles of pea gravel. Nice bridge over the Elkhorn River. However, further west the trail parallels Hwys. 275 & 20. We could see a lot of it from the road as we drove and the further west we drove, the worse it looked. There were sections where it was almost completely overgrown with weeds. Would not want to ride there at all. It's too bad, this could be a very nice trail, but central sections are very neglected if maintained at all. Hence, the 3 star rating.

South Omaha Trail

Updates March 19 2017

March, 2017 by vfurlong

1. This trail now connects to the Field Club trail near 35th and Vinton Streets near the many grain silos.
2. There is now a trailhead at 42nd and D Sts. with parking. This is directly across the street from the McDonald's at 42nd/D.
3. I walked it today, but bikers prevail in numbers. The lack of significant scenery seems to fit the bike mode.
4. At the western end of this trail near the Keystone connection, I have seen a flock of turkeys in a forested area with is part of a Kiewit storage site. ( that was 18 months or so ago)
5. Long hills on the eastern half of the trail...

Steamboat Trace Trail

Pretty but windy

February, 2017 by blairmcian

I previously reviewed this trail from a ride from its southern end, at Brownville, to Peru, NE. This review is of the leg from Peru to just south of Nebraska City. It is an attractive stretch of trail, and the trail itself was generally in good shape. The only negative that keeps me from giving more stars is that much of the trail is exposed to whatever wind may be blowing, and in Nebraska the wind is usually blowing. If it turns out to be a headwind then that is a serious negative. That would be significantly reduced if some windbreaks were planted alongside the trail, especially on the west side since that's where the wind usually comes from.

MoPac Trail (Springfield)

Springfield to Platte River Pedestrian bridge

February, 2017 by dpschmidt93

Nice trail, some nice shaded/wooden areas. Very scenic around the Louisville to Platte River bridge area. Trail was very good shape. Some parts the gravel/rock was a little heavy to pedal through, but overall very well maintained. No washouts or washboard sections.

Chief Standing Bear Trail

Great Trail for Walking

February, 2017 by ctimrick

This is a great trail for walking and exploring! I have been walking this trail for years, long before it was a trail! I used to hunt and explore this area when there was railroad tracks and trains still running on it! If you're adventurous enough get off the trail and explore the river! You'll find remnants of and old dam and one of the biggest cottonwood trees in southeastern Nebraska! If you're lucky you'll see deer, bluebirds and other fur and fauna! A great place to take kids to explore! One of the best place to begin your adventure is on South 11th Street north of the river in Beatrice!

Chief Standing Bear Trail

Beautiful ride

October, 2016 by dodgesareus

I went from Blue Springs to Barneston earlier in the year. Good shade and views from BS to the Blue river crossing West of Liberty. From there to Barneston, the first few miles is nice then a mile or so stretch that is open so be careful in the summer!
Just rode from Barneston to Oketo yesterday. The ride was great. Smooth and scenic, especially the first few miles south of Barneston and at Oketo. Nice rock formations and views of the river. Shady for the most part.
