Love walking or biking on this trail with my family. Easy for young kids (or parents toting a child in a bike seat) to ride because it’s flat.

I wouldn’t label this as a great walking trail. This trail is meant for bikers. I walked it, got lost but wasn’t to bad. I love the nature feel and lots of birds to listen to! The trails are very narrow so make sure you jump out of the way for bikers.

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

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

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.

Nice trail, relatively easy. Well-rutted. Went on a Saturday which was very busy for mountain biking and we were walking our dog. Had to be advised by bikers to go counterclockwise so we could see bikers coming. There are some sharp bends and curves though where you wouldn't have allot of time to react, so that is a bit stressing. I would go again during the week only while most people are going to school or working.

Loved this nice neighborhood walk. Lots of small unofficial wooded trails along this trail.

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

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.

The trails were really nice and easy. Although the construction going on was kind of distracting and actually crossed through on a trail at one point. Had to avoid the machines.

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

Pros:
- 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

Cons:
- 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 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 for easy walks and run. We exercise us and our pets here:)

I great for walk or run.

Good little hike in the Omaha area. Took us about an hour walking at a slow to moderate pace. Great views of downtown Omaha at the beginning. Trail was pretty well kept for the most part. The forest you walk through is also really nice. Only complaint was the amount of bugs, but that should be expected when walking through a forest in the Spring/Summer. So don't forget to bring the DEET!

Good for a nice stroll. Relaxing to be by the lake.

The trail is smooth and well maintained. Not too busy. One spot that does mud over during storms.

Easy walking trail in midtown. Quiet and not overly busy.

Nice trail to walk, has something to see all along the trail.

Followed the paths along the lake, great time and meet lots of friendly people.

Not my favorite as a trail to walk my dog on. A number of the cyclists seem to act like they "own" the trail. Rarely did anyone announce themselves if they were coming up behind me to pass, and a couple of times side-by-side riders pretty much took up most of the path so I had to go to the edge and have my dog walk in the grass.
