Explore the most popular lake trails in Nebraska with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

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

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.

Nice paved trail around the lake to zone in on those nice master angler bass

The Best trial in Grand Island!!!!!

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

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.

It is terrific in all seasons!

Much more accessible in late-fall/early-winter/spring. Decent foliage and for the most part, not many people on the west side.

Great trail run off the beaten path.

I ran this loop for the G.O.A.T.z Trail Run and I really enjoyed it. The views of the water are beautiful and it was a peaceful run. Gotta watch out for horse droppings as parts of it are also equestrian trails but I look forward to running here again soon.

really nice trail for walking, running, jogging or for bicycles.

Easy hike through the Bohemian Alps of Nebraska! Mostly prairie and a small portion of the trail passes through a wooded area. I have brought a chair and set up shop on the dam to read. Peaceful place!

Easy and pretty Trail

Did the walk to kill time waiting for Ash Hollow to open. Just a place to stretch your legs.

This trail is a very well maintained and clean paved trail that is very good for running, biking, and easy relaxing walks.

We live really close to here and it has become our default walk, ride and run for when its a nice day and we just want to get outside. Its mostly flat, with one small hill and is paved the whole way around. There's always plenty of people of all ages out fishing in the lake, and sometimes they even catch something!

Really liked this. Even though I don't like walking on asphalt or paved paths due to feet issues, I still give it 5 stars. Scenery constantly changing between water to natural habitat to beautiful large homes back to water and then on and on. It's a winding path with majority of path blocked from traffic sounds. Only the loopdy-loop is noisy. Bicyclists, dog walkers, speed walkers, and other walkers/runners are frequenting it as well but all were friendly. Bicyclists would announce themselves when approaching from behind. I would definitely of this again if I was in town longer or coming back to visit family again. There are lots km & mile markers along the path and stations to grab a plastic bag to pick up your dogs mess.

Unkept trails very hard for a bike to get through, I would not recommend this trail for biking.

been going here since I was a teenager. I have a dog I like to bring with me and my 11 month old son has been enjoying it too since he was 6months old. I do have to say keep your eye out for people that don't have their dogs on a leash and people that don't restrain their dogs when you are trying to run/jog. Make sure to bring water. And my only complaint that I know is natural is the goose poop alllll over the trail in the best part in my opinion of the trail.

- Paved road but soft grass to the side
- Clean/Excellent upkeep
- A lot of easy to moderate elevation transitions
- A good mix of open areas and shaded areas
- A lot of rest benches

- Paved road so there are a lot of cyclists. They tend to go fast so you really can't wear headphones/earphones while running. I just saw two cyclists zoom by while runners were forced to jump out of the way

Overall, this trail tailors more to cyclists. If you plan to run this trail, make sure to keep your headset music at a low volume so you can hear incoming cyclists.

East side of the lake is very walkable up until Hwy 36. The west side of the lake not so much. Trails are barely visible and it seems to be more for for horseback trailing. Used Hwy 36 to cross the north side of the lake because I couldn't find a crossover due to the higher water level.

The walk is peaceful and even more so kayaking on the water! Something beautiful to see in every season. Great for kayaking, walking, photography and much more!

The trail was badly in need of mowing & hard to find in many places. My Garmin showed 6.5 miles of trail that I rode. Beautiful park!

This was a pleasant walk! My 5 year old and 9 year old along with our 3 year old Husky had a wonderful time! Everyone we encountered was very friendly. It was a very flat trail! Can't wait to take the bikes out there next time!

great place to hiking really beautifully

Great place for easy walks and run. We exercise us and our pets here:)

I great for walk or run.

This isn't a trail just a gravel road you can walk along the lake. A few bridges and some nice views. Good for the family but doesn't qualify as a hike. It's a walk.
