This trail is actually The Bellevue Loop Trail, and is part of the Omaha metro area's "Paths of Discovery!"

I rucked an out-and-back (13.1 miles round-trip), south from Haworth Park. I absolutely love that the metro area invested in a path/trail network, but this stretch is deliriously boring. Painfully F.L.A.T. (27 feet of elevation), no benches, nearly zero trees and shade. That said, the views are... pleasant... corn fields, mostly. And you're within an easy line of sight to the Offutt AFB pattern. Bring a friend, music, or audio book!

Hiked the loop with my 5 and 3 year old. Great views!

My favorite trail at the Monument. Been hiking it for over 50 years. Their has been a lot of changes during that time. In my youth we ran/jogged up and back. Now I choose to walk one way or the other but not both ways the same day.

Great little trail on top of Scottsbluff National Monument. Great views of surrounding bluffs and the surrounding area. Great flowers and plants depending on time of year. I try to make it there whenever we visit family in the area.

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

This is a quiet trail tucked in the middle of the city. I enjoy taking my dog for a run here year round. The trail is great whenever there is rain, sun, or snow because it's mostly covered by trees. The one issue I have is parking your car there will leave you at risk for a break-in. Thieves love the secluded parking lot on the north side. Consider parking where it's more populated.

Stretch your legs and enjoy the view.

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.

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!

All paved, but there's an actual dirt trail path in the Eastern tree line between Woolworth and Martha, separated by Center. It's the closest you'll get to a trail in midtown.

Boring and short. Views of the city.

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

We walk this trail at least three times a week. We have seen deer, turkey, turtles etc beautiful place to walk.

Nice area for an easy walk.

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.

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.

Love this trail, I walk it every day. Very peaceful and almost completely shaded from Woolworth south to Martha. Wide concrete trail that is excellent for bikers, walkers and runners. If you like birdwatching, you will see plenty. Only caution is that this is partly in a ravine, so on hot days don’t expect a lot of breeze.

I run this every once in a while, beautiful for being in the middle of town and easy- good for the whole family. Paved road around a lake, moderate traffic

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

This trail came up in a hiking search and I’m not sure why. I personally like hiking spots to be a little more secluded, and this park is literally right in the middle of a neighborhood. The lake was pretty and the path is flat and well maintained. Maybe a better spot for riding or just for a leisurely walk. Would be a nice spot to walk with a date or friend.

Great place to take a walk! Easy paved path with scenic views of the lake and surrounding forest. Also seems like a great place to ride your bike if you like that since the path is very smooth and flat. Not sure why it’s labeled moderate, it was easy. But some of the curves may be more difficult on a bike. Will have to do the full loop around the lake sometime.

Will definitely do it again

Great well maintained trail paved the whole way. Go early, say 6:30 in morning when cool. Take a light jacket

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.

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.
