Walnut Creek Lake is part of the Papio Missouri River Natural Resources District, and is a worthwhile location for a walk, a bike ride, fishing, RV camping, or a picnic. Walnut Creek Lake Trail is three miles long, about ten feet wide, concrete surface, and nice and smooth! Signs advise hikers that is about a one hour walk. The trail has a few steeper slopes in some areas.
Good dirt trails
Great trail! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it's always crowded. People are always out there grilling or walking around the park. If it was a little less busy I would give it 5 stars for sure.
In addition to the paved path which incircles the lake, there are mountain biking trails that i like to run.
Great walking paths, all we walked were concrete paths like sidewalks. Has some elevation changes which can work the legs.
Decent loop. Reminds me when I had to run the mile in PE class at Papio south.
Great loop trail for walkers. Not much shade on sunny days, so be prepared. Trails are paved and well used.
Small loop around a lake. They have nice little garden and an island you can hangout on
I biked this trail on a Wednesday morning; the traffic was fairly light. It is 3.2 miles around the loop, so I did it a couple of times. There is plenty of parking and the trail is well maintained. The path has several benches and nice views of the lake. You won't find trash cans here as it is a "Bring it in, take it out" park, but there are bathrooms. The park would be good for picnics and I saw several people fishing as well. In general, a nice place to visit.
