Great, secluded place to hike close to the city. Just don’t forget to douse yourself in bug spray! This hike is listed as easy, but I disagree. Much of the hike is in and out of ravines, which means a good deal of hiking uphill. I went in the late afternoon on a Saturday, and saw deer and turkeys. There were only a few other cars in the lot when I arrived so the trails are not busy. I enjoyed the solitude as I only crossed paths with one other hiker. I would think this might be a difficult hike for toddlers and it is not at all fit for strollers. The trails are decently maintained and I will definitely hike here again!

I always enjoy hiking at Neale Woods! The trails were pretty well maintained for the most part, well labeled, and there are maps available at the front entrance. The views of downtown Omaha at the beginning are amazing. Worth coming just to see, even if you don’t hike. But there are also some really pretty trails through the prairie, the woods, and on a hilltop. The hike can be easy or more challenging, depending on what trails you take. The recording on here only has like 2 miles, but I did almost 5 when I went, and I definitely could have done more. There’s got to be at least 8 miles of trails if not more. I like this hike because it’s only a 20 min drive from Omaha, but is completely secluded! Definitely recommend if you’re in the area.

Pretty annoyed that I drove all the way out here just to see a “no pets allowed on property”. Turned around and left without getting out of the car

Good little hike in the Omaha area. Took us about an hour walking at a slow to moderate pace. Great views of downtown Omaha at the beginning. Trail was pretty well kept for the most part. The forest you walk through is also really nice. Only complaint was the amount of bugs, but that should be expected when walking through a forest in the Spring/Summer. So don't forget to bring the DEET!

My favorite place to hike in the omaha area

We hear too many gunshots and there is not rangers anywhere! And that's kind of scary!
