Walking the trails is an experience unlike any other in the Omaha metro area. Fontenelle Nature Association owns and manages 2,000 acres of conservation land and 26 miles of marked trails within Fontenelle Forest Nature Center in Bellevue and Neale Woods in Omaha.

If you start at the nature center you can take a leisurely stroll for a mile or two. If you go further back into the forest I'd say it was a moderate hike. Lots of elevation changes and plenty of different trails to go on. I went in about 6 miles and turned around. I found it difficult to follow the signs to get out of the area close to the nature center but once I got out of that loop it was easy to follow the signs out and back.

Nice weekend hike with my daughter. Great for a beginner hiker. Did the hills for a moderate challenge.

Love this place. Lots of well marked trails. Easy ones and more difficult ones. I'm happy to pay my yearly membership fee to help fund all the work they do.
