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.

4 stars only because this trail gets a bit sketchy when going under the overpasses, but otherwise it is wonderful! I started at Hefflinger Park (the beginning/end of the trail) and rode to 72nd St, which was 14.6 miles. The trail is rather flat, with small, manageable hills. For a strong rider, this trail would be a piece of cake. I'm a new rider, and I really enjoyed the workout I got on this trail. I highly recommend it. If you can get past riding behind some shopping centers and warehouses closer to the lower numbered streets, you'll have a great ride here!

Ok, so.... I'm so so on this. I started my hike at the parking lot and was on a great little dirt trail for about 2.6 miles. It says it's supposed to be 3.2 miles. So at be fork in the road that said return to parking lot or continue on another trial, I continued. Well, that was a completely uphill mountain bike trail that made my round trip hike 5 miles. That's fine for me, but others wouldn't like that when they planned for 3.2. I won't be back, BUT the 2.6 and return to parking lot is very enjoyable. It is dog friendly.

This is my fave paved lake path to run! It's a 4.4 mile loop if you stay next to the lake. There is an option to make it longer by 156th, but you'll have a huge incline if you do this. The lake loop doesn't have much incline and is easy for an average/above average runner. Check it out!

I LOVE this trail!! It's huge. I do the 5.8 mile loop, but there are options to expand the length. It's paved. There are some tough inclines but they are short and spaced out. Completely surrounds the lake. Great spot!

This trail is great. However, it's not a loop trail. You have to turn around at each end unless you want to make it a loop by biking on 144th, where there is no sidewalk. I parked, bikes to the end of the trail, turned around at 144th, and bikes back to my car. There is access to neighborhoods if you want to add distance and make your own route. This path is paved. It had inclines that are challenging for a beginner biker, but doable.

Fun touristy activity. Can be busy but overall it is a really nice walk.

My favorite place to hike in the omaha area

Great view of Omaha cityscape!

Amazing trail for hiking. For the most part the bikers are very friendly. I would not wear headphones on this trail so you could hear the bikers coming up behind you. I find it a good work out if I walk as fast as I possibly can but watch out for the tree roots to try to trip you!

Great park for walk and running even ride your bicycle
