Omaha's Glenn Cunningham Lake offers six miles of walking and biking trails circling the reservoir. The 8ft wide, concrete trail known as the "C" provides an accessible path for easy recreation and adventures in nature, as well as connecting the amenities of the recently upgraded park. These facilities include the water stations, picnic shelters, the marina, the upgraded campground, disc golf course, fishing docks and accessible kayak launches. Available recreational activities include tent camping, no-wake boating, fishing, hiking, bicycling, picnicking and horseback riding.
The reservoir was a US Army Corps of Engineers flood mitigation project from the 1970s. The park was renovated beginning in 2017 and reopened in 2021. Further improvements are planned for the park.
The Lake Cunningham Recreation Area is located at 8993-8965 State St, Omaha. There are three entrances:
8’ wide NEW concrete at 6.4 miles long with beautiful scenery, slight elevations, great picnic spots and easy access! The “C” is a great addition to the Omaha trail system!
I’m still a relative new comer to this trail thing (e-biking), but have been to the “C” twice and really like it. The trail is a nice new eight foot wide. The scenery is beautiful and for me the distance (6.4 miles) is perfect. It’s largely flat with just a few spots of slight elevation making it perfect for almost any rider. There are many beautiful spots to stop to hydrate or perhaps even lunch. 3 parking lots make access super easy. This is a great addition to the Omaha trail system.
