Good trail. A few areas with no shade. Part of the trail is right next to the road. Some slightly steep areas. Wide sidewalk made it easy for bicycles to go around people walking. My dog was on a leash and he loved it.

This is a great trail for walking, jogging, or biking. Races are frequently run here and it's the location of the annual Heart Walk. The water makes for nice scenery and every so often you'll get a glimpse of a riverboat floating down the river. The nearby bridge has a cool spot where you can stand on the line separating Nebraska and Iowa.

The trail features wetlands, views of the river, several parks, and some ups and downs (as the sign says, some exceeding 9% grade). On my trek, I went as far south as the North Omaha Power Station and as far north as Deer Creek (at this point, the bridge on the bike path was blocked off; I could have continued by just biking on the road for 100 feet, but I needed an excuse to turn around). The trail passes by/through several parks including Hummel Park, Neale Woods Nature Center, and up toward Boyer Chute National Refuge. For the most part, the trail is separate from the road on its own path; however, there are small sections of the trail that are on the side of the road (North River Drive). I didn't think the ups and downs were too severe, I mean, just gear down and keep pedaling. The views of the river and the surrounding farm land were really nice. The further north you go, the more wetlands there are. There were lots of birds and I even saw some deer munching away in a field. When I have time for a longer ride, I'll do this again and see how far north the trail actually goes.
