  • There's not a lot of dirt trails in the area but Lewis and Clark stands out as one of the best for its great views of Omaha and the plains of Iowa. Plus the elevation changes make it a fun/challenging course to run or bike.
  • Used to take care of a beacon tower here. Best view of Omaha and surroundings.
  • So pretty up there I could sit there all day and look at the scenery
  • Mushroom hunting on the trails!! My kids love coming up here to look at the plains and the outlook.
  • Great place for mountain biking... you are either going down hill or up hill.... 1 full lap is approximately 4.5 miles
