Notice: Part of the trail between Old Chenney Road and South 14th Street will be closed for construction from July6, 2020 through mid-late September. Please check the Lincoln Parks and Recreation website for updates before going out on the trail.
Running along a former Union Pacific Railroad corridor, the Jamaica North Trail extends from the southwestern corner of downtown Lincoln south through the city to Saltillo Road, linking several of the city's neighborhoods to various Lincoln parks and trail connections.
The trail's northern, more urban half features a concrete surface, while the southern stretch is crushed stone. For longer excursions, the trail connects with the Salt Creek Levee Trail north of Pioneers Boulevard and with the Homestead Trail at its southern tip, providing an uninterrupted route from downtown Lincoln south to Beatrice.
Midway along the Jamaica North Trail is Wilderness Park, Lincoln's largest park, which offers miles of hiking and mountain biking trails through dense forest and meadows. The trail also provides access to the Standing Bear and Sawyer Snell Parks, as well as Sherman Field, a historic baseball stadium. Those fans wishing to experience college or independent baseball can continue north along the Salt Creek Levee Trail directly to Haymarket Park, home of both the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Lincoln Saltdogs baseball teams.
Parking for the Jamaica North Trail can be found on Saltillo Road, just east of S. 25th Street, at the trail's southern end.
