Starting at the George Clayton Hall County Park, The Riverway Trail is a straight and flat 4-mile trail, traveling east towards the Platte River. Aside from crossing four intersections, the path is uninterrupted. Also near the trail head is the Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer; a nationally recognized educational and cultural institution that preserves and portrays the inspiring era of the pioneer town builders who created the first communities in Nebraska. The trail is also connected to the St. Joe Trail which travels north towards the southern end of Grand Island and the South Locust Street Trail which will put you off Rt. 34.
Parking available at George Clayton Hall County Park.
We parked near the Stuhr Museum and took off away from the museum, planning to bike while it was still cool and then visit the fabulous place. It was not well marked but easy for the most part to follow. It was really fun with the tall grasses. We were on a paved pathway for quite a while on a file and then the trail just stopped. We went further riding on gravel and in the grass but decided to head back to the museum. Make time to visit the museum. It’s really great.
My family traveled to Grand Island, NE for a wedding, we planned on camping & stayed at the KOA just outside of town. We had picked up their city magazine & they mentioned nothing about bike trails in the area. So we looked on this site & found quite the extensive set of trails listed, I think in total it's about 20 miles of trails! It's sad that the city doesn't advertise them to visitors, because they're a very beautiful set of trails!
We combined this one with the John Brownell trail as well. We started from Walmart, which is right by the trail-head. The trails are very flat, well maintained, & paved the entire way, so we could have continued on & on, without even realizing how far we had gone! The Riverway trail goes through countryside, & by the Stuhr museum which is very picturesque, but unfortunately was closed for an extensive period of time, so we couldn't visit it. The John Brownell trails weaves through residential areas & goes through several neat city parks.
It's a shame these trails aren't well advertised or well known, because they were a really nice surprise!
