on Fontenelle Forest Trails

yes it costs money but i ended up getting the year membership. Just moved to omaha and tried several trails and this one is by far the best. They have a dozen trails that range from dirt, wood chip, to a very easy boardwalk that includes an area for kids as well. Very good scenery, quiet with lots of flowers/trees and overlooks the missouri river in several spots, i even came across a deer (doe) with two fawns eating grass right along the trail which was very neat. Will be returning and would highly recommend, you get your moneys worth, $10 a day but like I said I just got the year pass for $45 since they are open all year and i like the multiple trail options in one place

Nice trail. Kind of scenic. Lots of covered areas. Very busy and crowded. Recent rain made it so that the road had to be crossed instead of using the rain. I would recommend this trail at times when not so busy.

Best trail system in and near Lincoln. Peaceful, yet buggy and flat. Typical for the part of the state. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow, and I had it mostly to myself. There needs to be a pedestrian bridge on old Cheney, as myself and a family of bikers had to sprint across when there was a break in traffic.

Peaceful, not too busy, goes further now than stated in the description- currently extends to 42nd and F streets(roughly), where the continuation of the trail is under construction. It appears it will connect to the Keystone and Big Papio trails, and probably pretty soon!

trail running

Ran this trail twice and got lost both times. They really need to mark this trail better, too many extensions that can easily lead you to nowhere, not much to ask. Also, too many rude people standing on the trail glued to their phones with dogs on leash while allowing their 4 year olds to ride around unguided. Doesn't help when the trails are somewhat narrow too. I gave this trail 2 stars because, I like the layout of the trail itself, lots of shade.

road biking

Nice ride. Pretty short, but scenic. The only bad part is the stretch along 144th. I turn around and enjoy the trail in reverse rather than ride the road. Sometimes it gets a little tight due to growth of trees hanging over the trail fairly low.

road biking

Nice wide open trail. Easy ride to get some distance in. Can be a little busy and a little tight when using bridges, but visibility is good enough to avoid issues.

mountain biking

Challenging trail for beginning rider, but not too difficult. Can be a little rough due to how narrow the trail gets at times and how low it is compared to the ground on either side. Could use some better markings, somehow missed the turn back to the parking lot and had to find an alternate route to finish the ride. Only rode the southern loop this time, so don't know about the north portion of the trail. Don't pay attention to the 3.2 miles listed, it was actually just over 5 miles. Overall a good, fun ride.

Beautiful well maintained trail. There was a part where you had to walk on the side of a busy road with no paved trail.
