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.

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.

Easy walking trail, high volume which is ok. Family friendly, never a problem. enjoyed seeing Law Enforcement using the trail which provides a nice safety feature.

Nothing special but a good lake

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.

Nice trail. I usually ride this one a few times a week and am never bored with it.

This is a nice walk on paved trails. The real downfall to Zorinksy is the volume of people on it. There tends to be quite a few bikers speeding along the sharp turns making it somewhat unpleasant if you have a dog on a leash. If you want a little distance without getting your shoes muddy, Zorinsky is a good option.

Excellent Trail. Bike/Walking/Jogging trails are maintained very well however needs some pavement work. Bikers watch out for dogs on long leashes and loose kids. Otherwise excellent ride and opportunity for fresh air.

Let me start by saying this: in my mind, this is more of a utility trail and less of a recreation trail. One would ride their bike or walk on the 144th Street trail to get around (instead of driving), not for pleasure. There is a lot of stopping at intersections and hitting the crossing button and waiting for the little white man to appear on the sign across the street. On a positive note, I did like this trail because it connects Zorinsky and Walnut Grove with Chalco Hills. I was able to use the 144th Street trail as a connection so my trek was longer on bike and less in a vehicle. All in all, I know that not all the trails in Omaha can be like the Papio or Keystone that have a dedicated paved route separate from vehicles; I like that the city is making an effort. So I guess all I'm trying to say is that I would use this trail to get from point A to point B, not because I think it's particularly enjoyable or scenic.

I run Zorinski several times a week. It is relatively flat. A few small bumps along the way. It can get very crowded. Especially on the weekend and late afternoon. The bikers can get out if control once in a while. Plenty if shade once you get away from the eastern side. I go for the scenery ;)

Zorinsky is a large, popular park in west Omaha. The trail itself has many entrance/exit points from local neighborhoods and roads. The trail is well marked with miles and kilometers as you make your way around. Due to its popularity, the trail is usually quite busy with walkers, bikers, dogs, children, etc. There are several bathrooms, parks, shelters, and other attractions around its entirety. This trail also connects with the Walnut Grove Park to the southeast for a longer ride/walk.
