speaking of omaha area trails

Omaha Trails | The Most Comprehensive Source for Trail Information in the City of Omaha | Home


has a poll called


Which trail extension would you like to see completed next?


Keystone Extension to Glenn Cunningham
Big Papio to Bennington Lake
West Papio from Huntington Park to 180th and Ida
West Papio from 168th and W. Dodge to Elkhorn
West Papio from 144th Street Trail to 96th Street
Boulevard Trail from Happy Hollow to the Riverfront Trail
More East to West Trails



personally, I would like to see that east-west trail that was supposed to be built connecting the keystone to another trail built.



also the keystone going from fort street to cunningham lake has been talked about for at least a decade and I highly doubt it will happen.


when you walk or ride a bike north on the keystone trail,


you gotta on fort street

go up to 90th street and around a bit to get over towards northwest high area and head up towards the lakes.

There is a brand new trail on 16th street that runs from Coming to Capitol.

I would like to see the north end of that trail sun west on cuming to saddle creek. Then saddle creek north to the NW Radial Highway. Finally along the NW radial highway to meet up with the extended keystone trail that runs from fort to at least the NW Radial.

I would like to see the Papio South & Walnut Creek trail connected to Werhspann. That would finish the east/west connection on the south side of the metro - could then go from West Omaha to Papillion to Bellevue and to the River...

I would like to see the Happy Hollow to Riverfront trail, considering that part of Omaha has seen a lot of redevelopment already. It would be nice to have more people out and about; more of a community feel. I also like the east-west trail idea. It's a nice link for both "sides" of town.

Hey guys, I don't know much about Nebraska but am looking into the Omaha area as a possible place to relocate to.

I know someone in Valley, NE.

Anyway, being an outdoor athlete, it's real cool to learn about these trails you have around Omaha.

Are some of these paved? Are they all smooth dirt trails? Are some sandy? How about hard and rocky?

How are these trails used? Are they kinda crowded or not? Are there horses on them? Dirt bikes? Crazed speeding mountain bikers? What's the basic scoop on these trails, guys. Thanks!

The entire Omaha metro area has a complete paved trail system... it also crosses into and connects with the trails system in Council Bluffs.

Check here for a nice overview:
Omaha Trails | The Most Comprehensive Source for Trail Information in the City of Omaha | Home

For the entire state of Nebraska take a look at this link:
Nebraska Game and Parks Commission - Parks - Trail Search (http://www.ngpc.state.ne.us/parks/guides/trails/findtrails.asp - broken link)
and this link:
GPTN - Nebraska Trail Information (http://www.gptn.org/nebr_trailinfo.htm - broken link)
