Good for a brisk walk. No extreme hills to climb.

road biking

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.

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.

hiking

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!

canoeing

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.
