Road part of this trail for the first time today as a newbie cycler. It was a lot of fun and had some small hills, sharp turns, tree roots, etc that made it an excellent adventure. I can’t wait to get back but first my noodle legs need to recuperate..

Walked trail 9, 10, 11 it was absolutely breathtaking with some pretty steep inclines which I loved, if your looking for an absolutely amazing day and a good workout with some breathtaking views I recommend this place, i drove 2 1/2 hours to go hiking here with my dog and the entry fee was $8 but that little bit of money for the parking ticket is worth every last cent

Fun trail to bike but low on mileage.

I think we picked a bad time to go as everything has recently been burned so the scenery was black and uneventful. The Indian Cave trail says “Dogs on Leash” however once hiking through a bunch of bullllshit because the markers and directions are a little confusing you finally get to it and it says “No Pets”. When you put in the trail in AllTrails it takes you to Trailhead 9, I believe. You hiked a bunch of wooded area until you come to the top where there is a campground sight and field. We took trail 11 because that’s where everyone said the cave started at. PLEASE BE CAREFUL, when I read all the stuff that Trail 11 was a “death trap” I scoffed it off. It is a very steep, very small and not well maintained trail down a cliff side. At some points if you were to fall it would be close to deathly. We hiked after a rain so add this trail plus mud with some grip for your feet is was miserable. At one point we were on our asses scooting down. You get to the end of it and the cave is nowhere to be found. Let alone no signs. However it says it starts at trailhead 11. Low and behold you have to walk down the road along the river about a football field and there it is, the big beautiful red staircase which said “No Pets”. All in all, was not worth the 4 hour drive. If it was closer it definitely is worth it. The park is giant and when everything turns green it will be beautiful. Plus, you can’t beat spending 5 hours outdoors and not seeing a single soul. Just you, the dogs and nature.

Neat views, if you look towards Chimney Rock National Monument you can see it on a clear day.

Well taken care of trail, many birds and small lizards. Watch for rattle snakes!! As you get to the hill areas look for fosils on the ground and in the mounds.

I use this trail often since I live near here. nice and secluded with hiking options for everyone. kids play place, many good views of the Missouri river.

A fun way to spend an sunny afternoon. Quite a view and easy casual walk.

A very beautiful area. Its nice to go to Fontenelle Forest to get away from all the busy Omaha city life. This trail is fun for the whole family. My grandma (75 years old) and I walk this trail frequently to get outside and enjoy nature.

The loop is great, and the off leash area close by is the best by far in the area

Much longer trail than this map indicates, and a good way to ride from downtown to 88th and Highway 2. Thank you, city government, for repaving along Normal and 70th.

Loved this trail, only bad side is they have trails going to places that end, like up to the pavilion on the hill, you have to back track down to meet the main trail, some signs that says where it goes and if it dead ends and you need to turn around (did have horse trail you could print use, but not if it's wet/muddy). Great for walking, running, jogging, bicycling. Has other trails you can explore, when it's not wet or muddy. Playground area, boat dock.

Very nice, well maintained, paved path that runs past the park and pond.

We enjoyed backpacking here. Lots of up and down hills. It was muddy but the views were worth it.

Short, easy walk along the Niobrara River, then a wooden pathway leads back to Smith Falls. 5 stars for how much fun it is to splash around with our kiddo at the base of the falls; highly recommended!

The Best trial in Grand Island!!!!!

Had a blast it's a very hiking friendly park. Very cool during Halloween

Really nice walk. You feel out in nature in the middle od town.

We have hiked these trails year round and always a pleasure to be there. If damp under foot trekking poles can be helpful on slippery steep areas

Went hiking during the winter season. It was a nice trail but it wasn’t marked very well. So kinda made my own path and was cool to see the water frozen and able to walk out to the Platte River. Phone turned off due to the cold so I couldn’t record my whole hike. The observation tower was great to go on but it was, obviously, very cold and windy.

Great local walk. The ice is frozen over now with ice fishers in their huts out in the center of the lake. Deer tracks on the ice and in the snow.

A walk in the park. Easy 3.3 mike paved route. There are a number of off ramps that allow people to get off the beaten path and experience some mild terrain as well. A decent mountain bike trail as well. Take your family and the dog, this hike is made for everyone.

Quite stunning, if you can handle steep inclines it's totally worth it. Beautiful on a starry night overlooking the valley floor and lights below. Good trail in cooler months, good fall colors. Most scenic trail I've seen in Nebraska

It is terrific in all seasons!

For both walking and running, this trail has served me well since I moved here. The little views of the streams are quite nice and the trails are mostly unoccupied. Unfortunately, on some warmer days gnats tend to be an issue in the more woodsy parts
