John Dietrich Bikeway Description

The John Dietrich Bikeway—also known as the John Dietrich Trail or simply the Dietrich Trail—winds through urban Lincoln for more than 3 miles. Along its route, the trail skirts the edge of a number of residential properties and 3 neighborhood parks (Lintel, Pentzer and Upco). At Fleming Fields, enjoy a game of baseball, softball or soccer.

First-time users of the John Dietrich Bikeway may want to study the TrailLink map before beginning a trip, as the trail's winding route could lead some astray at intersections. At the trail's western end, connect directly with the Antelope Valley Trail to access points north and south. On the trail's opposite end, take the Murdock Trail east to the edge of Lincoln.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the John Dietrich Bikeway can be found in Pentzer Park at the intersection of N. 26th Street and Potter Street, at Fleming Fields at the western end of Huntington Avenue or in Upco Park at the intersection of N. 39th Street and Cleveland Avenue.

John Dietrich Bikeway Reviews

This is kind of a winding trail through urban Lincoln. The city has painted a yellow center line, which helps keep you on track. With out it, you can lose your way at some intersections. A map is helpful the first time out.

It has nearby access to the MoPac trail, and directly connects to the David Murdock trail, which heads out of Lincoln to the Northeast.
