The U Street trail runs east-west in the city of Gering, on the edge of Scotts Bluff National Monument. The concrete trail begins on 10th Street, across from Carl Gray Park and passes Gering High School. As one travels west, the setting shifts from urban to wilderness, and the famous bluffs loom larger. The trail ends at the edge of the national park but you can continue your journey on the north-south Monument Valley Pathway.
Scotts Bluff is a series of rocky outcrops that rise over 800 feet above North Platte River. The bluff served as a landmark for European pioneers moving west in the mid-1800's. The park preserves the natural and man-made history of this area over 3000 acres of protected lands.
You can park at Carl Gray Park (10th Street and U Street) and head out and back on the trail. There is a small parking area on the western end near the border of the national park. Always exercise caution at street crossings.
