So happy to have this trail so close to home! I walk almost everyday with my dog.

Really not very well maintained from locust street to the platte river. Grass up to waist high in some areas. This area of the trail is supposed to be crushed rock. The rest of it is great.

Stretch your legs and enjoy the view.

Great trail for road running training! I love to go around the back side of the museum but the parks and views in town are fun as well!

My husband and I enjoyed this trail and ended up walking on UNO campus to the rose garden and memorial. The memorial is beautiful and well cared for. I look forward to taking my mother here.

If you are in the area Smith Falls is an absolute must see. On a road trip through the area? Stretch your legs and spend some time here. In recent years this area has become a destination for those who like lazy river activities and beautiful lush green camping. And for good reason. This is a gem of a find in a very unexpected location. That being said, the waterfall by itself is not something to drive across Nebraska for.

Easy, accessible, and the tallest waterfall in Nebraska! Good job Game and Parks!

Four stars for the unique whimsical place in a remote area of the state. Not a destination but fun if passing through.

A great trail. All concrete. Great for bicycling and other activities. Not much traffic. It goes both in town and out of town. We visited the Stuhr pioneer prairie museum on the way.

Beautiful scenery and just a really nicely maintained trail that almost anyone could walk.

Once we got to the top, the views of the surrounding valleys were amazing!

Nice paved trail, very accessible, easy. The visitor center is also very nice.

Nebraska high point! Google Maps got us right there from the south. At turn off there's a sign with some information and a envelope/drop box for your $3.

From the turnoff you drive a dirt road about a mile to the highpoint. You're not allowed to walk the road from turnoff due to the fact that it's a working bison ranch (High Point Bison).

Once to the top there's a simple monument, bench, and metal desk with register.

Pretty great views of Wyoming, Colorado, and Nebraska plains.

One request: please don't leave loose paper or even trinkets in the drawers. I spent 5-10 minutes picking up trash that had blown/fallen out of the drawer.

Can’t really expect more from a drive-up highest point :).

NOTE - $3.00 per person. Don’t drive all the way out there without your funds

With the addition of Flanagan Lake Park this multipurpose trail is tops in Omaha; especially with the hopes for more tree plantings for shade around the lake

Nice paved trail. Once you leave the park, there is little shade, so plan accordingly.

Views yes, but very ordinary. No markers or info. Did see buffalo herd.

Lincoln has many and great trails throughout the city, for walking, running, and biking, definitely a plus. Well maintained, nice views, and many parks along the way.

Our family enjoyed this trail. Paved, with some seating areas along the way that provide some shade. That was nice considering there are no trees on this portion of the plains and the day we did this hike it was 105 degrees. The fossil hill is very interesting to see. Never crowded, and the views of the rolling plains are beautiful. Away from the trail, make sure you go into the visitors center to view the Vault of Native American artifacts that were handed down to people who settled the land. It's an incredible collection

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.

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!!!!!

This is a really easy walk. We did it with kids ranging from 6-11. Everyone did it without a problem.

Beatiful prairie run. Short but sweet twilight run. Would love to come again when the center is open. Stopped on my way back to Sioux Falls.

Relative to the area, Smith Falls is a must do. Simple boardwalk to the falls. Nice campground, great float river adjacent to the falls.

High marks for history. Well maintained. I never like paved trails. State maintained and they get very low marks for admission fee for out of state'rs. I almost didn't do it.
