This is a quiet trail tucked in the middle of the city. I enjoy taking my dog for a run here year round. The trail is great whenever there is rain, sun, or snow because it's mostly covered by trees. The one issue I have is parking your car there will leave you at risk for a break-in. Thieves love the secluded parking lot on the north side. Consider parking where it's more populated.

We walk this trail at least three times a week. We have seen deer, turkey, turtles etc beautiful place to walk.

We walk here all the time. It’s the best park in Omaha for a long walk. You will however see a lot of people here, so if you are looking for a secluded area you might want to go to a park outside of city limits. That being said we enjoy this park! You see deer, birds, turkeys, hear owls in the evening and there are also tons of mulberry trees in the summer months.

We walk here 4-5 times a week and seen Turkeys, geese, turtles, deer.....

Great place to take a walk! Easy paved path with scenic views of the lake and surrounding forest. Also seems like a great place to ride your bike if you like that since the path is very smooth and flat. Not sure why it’s labeled moderate, it was easy. But some of the curves may be more difficult on a bike. Will have to do the full loop around the lake sometime.

This trail is a very well maintained and clean paved trail that is very good for running, biking, and easy relaxing walks.

Really liked this. Even though I don't like walking on asphalt or paved paths due to feet issues, I still give it 5 stars. Scenery constantly changing between water to natural habitat to beautiful large homes back to water and then on and on. It's a winding path with majority of path blocked from traffic sounds. Only the loopdy-loop is noisy. Bicyclists, dog walkers, speed walkers, and other walkers/runners are frequenting it as well but all were friendly. Bicyclists would announce themselves when approaching from behind. I would definitely of this again if I was in town longer or coming back to visit family again. There are lots km & mile markers along the path and stations to grab a plastic bag to pick up your dogs mess.

Good for a nice stroll. Relaxing to be by the lake.

Nice trail to walk, has something to see all along the trail.

This is my fave paved lake path to run! It's a 4.4 mile loop if you stay next to the lake. There is an option to make it longer by 156th, but you'll have a huge incline if you do this. The lake loop doesn't have much incline and is easy for an average/above average runner. Check it out!

Really a beautiful man made lake with paved walking/ biking paths. Not as many trees as we'd've liked but still a nice mild walk.

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.

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.

Easy walking trail, high volume which is ok. Family friendly, never a problem. enjoyed seeing Law Enforcement using the trail which provides a nice safety feature.

Nothing special but a good lake

This is a nice park trail, that has 2 distinct parts. The east side is open and has a hill where the damn is, the west side has more shade and is pretty level.

It was great in the winter. Fairly well plowed and not too much traffic for a sunny January Sunday afternoon. Dog liked it too.

Really enjoy this trail, but it is a popular spot in Omaha. If you want a more isolated trail, this isn't the trail for you. Even with the numbers of people there on any given day, I enjoy my time there.

Nice trail. I usually ride this one a few times a week and am never bored with it.

This is a nice walk on paved trails. The real downfall to Zorinksy is the volume of people on it. There tends to be quite a few bikers speeding along the sharp turns making it somewhat unpleasant if you have a dog on a leash. If you want a little distance without getting your shoes muddy, Zorinsky is a good option.

Excellent Trail. Bike/Walking/Jogging trails are maintained very well however needs some pavement work. Bikers watch out for dogs on long leashes and loose kids. Otherwise excellent ride and opportunity for fresh air.

Let me start by saying this: in my mind, this is more of a utility trail and less of a recreation trail. One would ride their bike or walk on the 144th Street trail to get around (instead of driving), not for pleasure. There is a lot of stopping at intersections and hitting the crossing button and waiting for the little white man to appear on the sign across the street. On a positive note, I did like this trail because it connects Zorinsky and Walnut Grove with Chalco Hills. I was able to use the 144th Street trail as a connection so my trek was longer on bike and less in a vehicle. All in all, I know that not all the trails in Omaha can be like the Papio or Keystone that have a dedicated paved route separate from vehicles; I like that the city is making an effort. So I guess all I'm trying to say is that I would use this trail to get from point A to point B, not because I think it's particularly enjoyable or scenic.

I run Zorinski several times a week. It is relatively flat. A few small bumps along the way. It can get very crowded. Especially on the weekend and late afternoon. The bikers can get out if control once in a while. Plenty if shade once you get away from the eastern side. I go for the scenery ;)
