Bison Trail Description

The Bison Trail runs across southwestern Lincoln from the intersection of W. Prospector Court and S. 1st Street (south of State Route 2) to the entrance of Pioneers Park Nature Center on S. Coddington Avenue. This scenic pathway offers a view of the capitol over the tree line and is especially popular with bicyclists.

At the trail's eastern endpoint, connect to the Salt Creek Levee Trail and ride deeper into the heart of Lincoln, or take the Jamaica North Trail south to the city's southern edge.

On the Bison Trail's western end, explore Pioneers Park Nature Center and its network of hiking trails.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Bison Trail is available at Pioneers Park Nature Center (S. Coddington Avenue south of W. Van Dorn Street) and at the Jamaica North Trail trailhead at the intersection of Park Boulevard and Speedway Circle.

Bison Trail Reviews

This trail takes you out to Pioneers Park from the west edge of the city. As you leave Pioneers Park you'll notice the trail appears to be going straight to the Capitol. A very nice visual.

As of 2010 the trail is closed due to a bridge (from the 1930's) being unsound. The city is working on a fix and has indicated it may be rebuilt in the next few years.

There is no good route around the bridge using the trail if you are not comfortable with highways.
