Old Cheney Road Trail Description

Immediately adjacent to its namesake, the Old Cheney Road Trail provides a straight east-west route across southern Lincoln from 27th Street to 70th Street. Although the 3-mile paved pathway isn't much more than a widened sidewalk, it is an essential route for commuters.

The trail provides direct access to the Tierra Williamsburg Trail, 70th Street Trail and Helen Boosalis Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

There are no dedicated parking lots for the Old Cheney Road Trail, but street parking is generally available in the neighborhoods along Old Cheney Road.

Old Cheney Road Trail Reviews

The city decided to widen a sidewalk and call it a trail. It's normal width, but one side is a sound wall and the other side is a curb and 45mph street. There's literally no green space.

It's very noisy, due to the 45mph traffic reverberating off the sound wall, both a few feet away. The surface is poorly maintained.

There are numerous crossings. It's not a safe place to ride. If possible, use one of the other trails to go around. It's more pleasant.

It is cleared in the winter, although sometimes it takes a couple of extra days as the clearing for the street tends to get pushed onto the trail.
