Overall, the hike is a lot of fun. There a ton of different paths you can venture to and lots of natural beauty to enjoy. The teepee are is really cool and the Lincoln Journal tower is worth the climb to the top to be reward with awesome views of the park, the Platte River, and the Missouri River. This is definitely a moderate hike in some areas not just because of distance, but because there are steep ascents and descents in areas where the path is overgrown or not very well maintained. The are close to 0 trail markers and the map provided by the park can be challenging to follow if you have a challenged sense of direction. Despite all that, this is a hike worth doing. The park is beautiful, the falls are lovely, and it provided enough of a challenge to make it exciting. We saw a few people but it was not overly crowded. If you can end you hike by the creek where you will be rewarded with beautiful views and nice areas to fish, stroll, or simply sit and enjoy some time with nature.

Awesome scenery. Very peaceful. If you own dogs, the west side of the park has a no dog policy due to bison and other wildlife. East part is fine.

Our family really enjoyed this trail. Made it with a 5,6 and 7 year old. They loved the small tunnel that is approximately half way through the trail. Entire trail is paved. At one portion of the trail it's straight down on one side and no guard rails, so watch your kids closely. outside of that, they'll have fun! No matter what time of year, be prepared for some wind.

Platte River SP has a pretty good system of trails. I read the prior reviews regarding the trails not being marked, and was hesitant. Actually, that was part of the fun. You start out and go whatever way you want. If you as you have GPS, you can get back to where you started. The trail paths are well used and I was surprised with the amount of elevation change. Overall a great fall hike.

This amazing trail goes through the southern end of Pioneers Park in Lincoln, NE. It runs through a Prairie. Biking is possible but is recommended for dogs and hikers. You can take other trails around it. You can go on Bison Trail to extend it into a truly marvelous adventure!

This trail can be used for all things. It is made of gravel. Approximately there is a road every 13 blocks along the trail. It goes through cornfields but is surrounds by trees. It is great for walking dogs, running, and biking. Recommend this trail to anyone that can use it! Love it!

The trail isn't well marked. Even though I had a map I still got lost. Other than that this up and down trail is very beautiful. It is up and down and around. It was a good trail though. It was very muddy when I did it.

This is one of the many nice trail in Lincoln, Nebraska. I love this trail because it is easy access and allows you to get a good exercise in. It connects with many other trails such as Boosalis and Billy Wolff Trails which are great options. In the right times it is heavily trafficked such as a Saturday afternoon. Love this one. There are trees along-side it so that there isn't much shade at all. It is all paved. By the way this isn't the full trail. The actual trail goes all the way to South West High School. They got the northern portion right though.

Great hiking trails for beginner and intermediate levels. Be cautious after a rain as it can be slippery in some areas. Overall a beautiful place to hike.

I've lived in the area my whole life and had no idea this wildlife management area existed. Really cool to discover a place like this so close to home. Was fortunate enough to get there two days before they closed it down for archery hunting for the rest of the year. From the trail head, you head East down a relatively unkept vehicle trail (I almost didn't go that way) until you get to another vehicle barrier where the grass is mowed and walking gets much easier following the vehicle path. I'll be going back again for sure.
