Walnut Creek Lake is part of the Papio Missouri River Natural Resources District, and is a worthwhile location for a walk, a bike ride, fishing, RV camping, or a picnic. Walnut Creek Lake Trail is three miles long, about ten feet wide, concrete surface, and nice and smooth! Signs advise hikers that is about a one hour walk. The trail has a few steeper slopes in some areas.

Walnut Creek has a 5.0 mile mountain bike/hiking trail. It is maintained by THOR. Most of the trail is beginner friendly but has more challenging trail features incorporated. To access, park in main lot off 96th street and ride to east of lot and there is kiosk and trail map there.

Great trail! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it's always crowded. People are always out there grilling or walking around the park. If it was a little less busy I would give it 5 stars for sure.

Great walking paths, all we walked were concrete paths like sidewalks. Has some elevation changes which can work the legs.
