Bike Trails in Nebraska

It’s June 2016 and nice weather is back in Nebraska! We’ve posted this article with links for places to go biking in Nebraska. This includes Trail Riding, and Mountain Biking. Omaha and Lincoln both offer some great paved path biking in each city. Omaha has the Keystone Trail, while Lincoln has the Antelope, Rock Island and Billy Wolff trails for some long distance rides.

The link below includes driving maps of how to get to these locations. Unfortunately, it does not include trail maps for each. Most areas offer maps online or you can pick one up when you get there if it is a State Park or Recreation Area.

Several communities outside of Lincoln and Omaha have dedicated areas to Trail Riding and Mountain Biking in recent years. Stanton, Curtis, Scottsbluff, Brownsville & Fremont all have Mountain Bike trails close to these communities, and offer easy to advanced rides.

A note of interest:

Three places not mentioned that are certainly worthy as very good off road biking areas in Nebraska;

Wildcat Hills, Scottsbluff
Wilderness Park, Lincoln

Camp Calvin Crest, Fremont

All of these areas offer great riding. Wildcat Hills is more difficult, but beautiful scenery as you look down on Scottsbluff and the surrounding area. Wilderness Park is not difficult, as I mentioned in an earlier article on our site, but a longer ride out and back, and conveniently located to Lincolnites. Calvin Crest is subject to days that it is open. Call ahead. Any of these, if you go out on a weekday, traffic is considerably less on the trails.
