I biked figure 8 around both east and west portions of the lake. The trail, as well as the lake were amazingly beautiful!!! Trails were well marked and easy to follow, just make sure you do not take lefts at any forks, which will lead you to nearby neighborhoods. I came across 7 deer grazing by the west lake trail and there were a swan and ducks at a small lagoon of the east lake. On Wednesday morning the trail had barely any traffic. The secret to enjoying this trail is to avoid it during the Zorinsky stampede in the evenings and weekends.
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.
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 "flatwater kayaking" option in the "activity" menu.
Great trails off the pavement.
