The West Papio Trail offers nearly 23 miles of paved trail in the western Omaha metro region. The pathway begins just west of S. 36th Street in Bellevue, where it connects with the Keystone Trail, and follows Papillion Creek, which is referred to affectionately by locals as Papio Creek (hence the trail's name). The trail traverses open fields, office parks, residential neighborhoods, and several city parks.
After skirting the campus of Skutt Catholic High School, the trail tunnels under busy 156th Street and W. Center Road. Just south of the school, travel west on a connector trail to reach popular Zorinsky Lake Park. Continuing northward, the trail joins Pacific Street to cross active Union Pacific tracks, but quickly separates from the road again and travels through Pacific Meadows Park. After tunneling under W. Dodge Road and Blondo Street, the trail begins an uphill climb over several blocks.
The West Papio Trail currently ends in an open field adjacent to a residential development south of State Route 64/W. Maple Road. Approaching trail's end, travelers will have the delightful experience of traversing the Bluestem Prairie Preserve, which offers 147 acres of native grasslands and wildflowers.
