The Rock Island Trail in Lincoln, Nebraska, runs for nearly 7 miles through the city on a north–south corridor, between the University of Nebraska's flagship campus and Densmore Park. The trail is an important and popular travel route for nonmotorized uses, linking several city parks, neighborhoods and schools.
The Rock Island Trail links to the Southpointe Trail at Densmore Park; to the Tierra-Williamsburg Trail at 27th Street just south of SR 2; to the Helen Boosalis Trail (a.k.a. the Highway 2 Trail) just north of SR 2; and to the Billy Wolff Trail at the north end of the zoo.
There are numerous access points along the Rock Island Trail, including from the Folsom Zoo & Botanical Garden (restrictions and fees may apply). Parking is available on campus (restrictions and fees may apply) and at the following: playing fields at 2184 Capitol Parkway, Antelope Park (Memorial Dr. and Sumner St.) and Colonel Densmores Park (14th St. at Mockingbird Ln.).
