Beautiful trail with options for one or two lake loops. This is one of the busier trails near Omaha and is known for car break ins. Great for biking, running, walking, etc.

Good morning ride until fire blow out. Replaced quickly and within 100yds another blow out. Further investigation found the tire itself had a tear so had to run with the bike to just get a partial finish before being picked up... great morning for a rode though and not too crowded this early 0630-0730ish

Crowded due to coronavirus, everyone seems to be on this trail. It’s narrow and kind of rough for road bikes.

Beautifully maintained trail. Feel secluded when on certain parts - away from busyness of the city.

Wind advisory today! Still a rewarding and exhilarating experience. Moderate difficulty but that was mostly due to high winds.

Balk half of the trail is rough with holes and depressed joints everywhere and the trail is over crowded. It is so bad that my tail light came off tonight. The trail under the bridge floods after rain storms leaving you to cross 168th street.

Fantastic shaded loop, lots of beautiful spots. Nice 4.5k loop if you park in the east lot (with bathrooms), then cross the street and do the west loop. At the soccer fields you have to cross 168th to get back to the lot (or you’re trapped doing the whole east loop too). Lots of shade, birds, wildflowers. Yes, you must acknowledge the existence of humanity (and, gasp, even children, mr two stars) but everyone has been nice and considerate. Keep your map out, spurs to neighborhood are not well marked.

The scenery is nice. The trail is a good workout but the parking lots are not secure or policed in any way and cars are constantly broken into. Happened to my wife's car today, but auto glass litters the lot year-round. Do not park there unless or until something is done about the criminal element.

I absolutely love this trail! I'm from South Carolina and I love to run it when I get out this way.

Walking

We walk here all the time. It’s the best park in Omaha for a long walk. You will however see a lot of people here, so if you are looking for a secluded area you might want to go to a park outside of city limits. That being said we enjoy this park! You see deer, birds, turkeys, hear owls in the evening and there are also tons of mulberry trees in the summer months.

Really a beautiful man made lake with paved walking/ biking paths. Not as many trees as we'd've liked but still a nice mild walk.

Nice trail. Kind of scenic. Lots of covered areas. Very busy and crowded. Recent rain made it so that the road had to be crossed instead of using the rain. I would recommend this trail at times when not so busy.

Ran this trail twice and got lost both times. They really need to mark this trail better, too many extensions that can easily lead you to nowhere, not much to ask. Also, too many rude people standing on the trail glued to their phones with dogs on leash while allowing their 4 year olds to ride around unguided. Doesn't help when the trails are somewhat narrow too. I gave this trail 2 stars because, I like the layout of the trail itself, lots of shade.

This is a nice park trail, that has 2 distinct parts. The east side is open and has a hill where the damn is, the west side has more shade and is pretty level.

It was great in the winter. Fairly well plowed and not too much traffic for a sunny January Sunday afternoon. Dog liked it too.

Really enjoy this trail, but it is a popular spot in Omaha. If you want a more isolated trail, this isn't the trail for you. Even with the numbers of people there on any given day, I enjoy my time there.
