This is just as additional attestation to Omaha’s neglect of the north side of town

Closed to public now. I live near here and have drove by quite a bit while they have been renovating it. When it reopens next spring there will be a paved trail all around the lake and a bridge near highway 36. This needed an upgrade and got it. Should be a nice area.

Walking

I've taken about half of this trail, skipping the portion that goes through the campground. It's not the most exciting of trails and there's a lot of horse poop on the trails so that can be a pain.

I hiked the full loop of around the lake. (7.2 miles) West side poses more of a challenge due to talker grass. East side of the lake is more geared toward day campers, trails more maintained. Over all Great Lake views and a good day hike .

Hiking

I enjoyed this hike. The lake is really pretty. Lake trails can be pretty flat and boring, but this trail runs through forest and prairie and had some ups and downs. I appreciated going through different landscapes. I did find, as others said, that while the east side of the trail is well maintained, the west side is pretty overgrown. The trail gets pretty hard to make out. But I just followed the map on here to make sure I was going in the right direction, and that worked pretty well. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE BUG SPRAY AND WEAR A HAT. I go hiking a lot and bugs are obviously inevitable, but it was excessive here. Found five ticks on me when I got home, probably from walking through the very tall foliage on the west side of the trail. I think next time I would hike the east side up to highway 36 and just turn around and hike back the same way instead of doing the loop. But I still would recommend!

Much more accessible in late-fall/early-winter/spring. Decent foliage and for the most part, not many people on the west side.

Unkept trails very hard for a bike to get through, I would not recommend this trail for biking.

East side of the lake is very walkable up until Hwy 36. The west side of the lake not so much. Trails are barely visible and it seems to be more for for horseback trailing. Used Hwy 36 to cross the north side of the lake because I couldn't find a crossover due to the higher water level.

Horseback riding

The trail was badly in need of mowing & hard to find in many places. My Garmin showed 6.5 miles of trail that I rode. Beautiful park!

Rough trail for biking. Overgrown, ill maintained, hard to navigate. Nice location, can be an interesting challenge.

It was fun. We did a 7.2mile hike. The trails start and stop in odd places and disappears in other places. You have to create your own trail in some areas if you want to do the full lap around the lake but we ha da blast anyway.

Nice for trail running. Can get really muddy. But marked very well. Very quiet; mostly anglers when I've been there.

First to Review

This lake has a good paved trail, but I prefer taking hikes and rides off trail. Careful around the disc-golf course, especially on Saturday mornings there is a league that gathers.
