Dannebrog Trail Description

The first mile of the Dannebrog Trail, which completely encircles the town known as the Danish Capital of Nebraska, was paved in late September 1993. The trail runs along and around an abandoned Union Pacific rail line.

Owned by the village board of Dannebrog, the trail provides children with a safe place to ride their bikes and a place for residents of the community of all ages to exercise or enjoy a leisurely stroll. But the trail is not only popular within Dannebrog—it has been estimated that at least half the trail users come from out of town.

The main portion of the loop trail is surfaced with concrete, but a popular spur leads walkers on a woodchip-surfaced nature trail through historic Hannibal Woods.

Parking and Trail Access

Dannebrog is only 29 miles from Grand Island; take US 281 north from the city to State Route 58 to get to the village. There are no dedicated parking lots for the Dannebrog Trail, so park your car on local streets. As always, be mindful of any parking restrictions and the property of the town's residents.

Finally rode the trail

Nice small 3 mile trail. The south east section the concrete isn’t very smooth. Having to ride back on the highway to get from one to the other is not ideal. The nature trail is well-maintained even though it is just a dirt track. Will remember my bike when I am in Dannebrog in the future. Will ride this trail again.

Dannebrog Hike - Bike Trail

A real Jewel, this 3 mile trail through woods and around town is worth a stop just to meet Shirley Johnson who has done loads of paper work getting this trail done, with concrete and asphalt surface and a bridge over the Oak Creek, and to get a Tour of Columbia Hall. This is the Danish Capital of Nebraska. Stop at Harriett’s Danish Home Cooking for Great Food and conservation.
See an interesting Round Brick Grain Elevator across the street from the Trailhead. Ride through town for its unique yards. Hike or Mountain Bike “Hannibal’s Woods Nature Trail” Noel Keller 1 0ct 09.

Really neat trail around town - Don't pass through without stopping for a quick ride on this pretty trail!

We often would haul our bikes a 1/2 hour to come ride on Dannebrogs' trail. It's so pretty and mostly flat. The kids loved it. Only wish that it made a complete circle without having to ride on streets or sidewalks. They need to add a segment from Mill St. to the trail head by the old elevator on the east side of town. Otherwise, it's a great trail in a neat town! Check out their annual Danish celebration too, it's a hoot!

Wonderful community asset

My wife and I walk the Dannebrog trail at least 3 times a week during good weather and less frequently during poor weather. We moved to Dannebrog because of the trail and try to say thanks by picking up any litter we find along the way.
