tons of trails. some paved some just stomped down grass. beware of ticks- bring spray. water was decently clear-saw fish. weather was perfect and there are a lot of trees over hanging on 98% of paved paths. our dog uncovered 100+ trails and counting. walked 10+ miles and still did not cover all that could be covered. The man maid paths were a challenge but paved trails are super easy. also lots of cool things to see, like whispering poles and a rebar buffalo!

Absolute must stop if traveling through north border of Nebraska. We stopped on way to Black Hills/Rushmore area before heading west to Yellowstone. Went as a kid, falls still looked the same, but it was a lonely dirt trail back then only accessible by boat. Great memories, completely commercialized now, but one of Nebraska's coolest areas to see.

The Full Moon Paddle on Zorinsky lake is the best kept secret in Omaha! There were many paddlers (in all sorts of floating vessels) on the lake watching sunset and moonrise. People decorated their kayaks with lights like Christmas trees! Zorinsky park closes at 11PM. You have plenty of time to enjoy the moonrise show. I wrapped it up at 10PM as moon was getting higher and smaller. It was awesome! It was fun!
There was a very easy beach-like kayak entry at the North-East corner of the larger pond (east of 168th St) a few feet away from a very well lit parking lot. This is great summer night full moon kayaking spot.
P.S. It was actually a kayaking activity. Not sure why alltrails don't have "kayaking" option in the "activity" menu.

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.
