In just under three miles, the Skyline Trail takes users across a variety of settings - suburban residential, main street commercial, and agricultural. The trail is found in Elkhorn, on the west edge of Omaha where the rural and urban start to meet. The trail begins without much fanfare adjacent to Elkhorn Drive, a concrete path that is at times flush with the street. The trail leads to Ta-Ha-Zouka Park, where the little ones can expend their energy on the fields, the playground or even at the skate park.
From the park, the trail continues on Elkhorn to Main Street, where there are a variety of eateries among other businesses. The trail follows on the west side of Main Street, across the train tracks and then over West Papillion Creek. It then pivots west on Park Road. Fields of corn and other crops can be seen as the trail parallels the stream through Greenbrier Park. A small spur allows users to pause on a bridge overlooking the creek. South of the park, the trail is back in the suburbs along Skyline Road, but eventually the houses become more and more spaced out. The trail's final half mile slopes down as it passes crop fields and terminates on the bridge over W. Dodge Road/ State Route 28B.
Parking is available at Ta-Ha-Zouka Park ( 905 Elkhorn Dr Elkhorn, NE 68022) as well as Greenbrier Park (corner of Park Road and Skyline Road).
