  • A fun walk across the footbridge over the Missouri River with great views all the way. Go on a warmer day or be sure to bundle up. You'll be outside. :) 
  • We checked out our bikes near Durham Museum and we rode all over the river trails and over the bridge to Iowa. Which had more trails. But the best part was stopping at National Forest Headquarters on ...  more »
  • This bridge is a unique walking experience. Great views of Downtown Omaha skyline and Missouri River! Nice park on Iowa side or connects to over 100 miles of trails.

  • The staff here is so super nice. The kids had a good time with all the things to do. I will definitely be back someday. Before we went I saw pictures and reviews online. From my experience I was still overly impressed. It's a place that you have to experience yourself to understand how wonderful it is.
  • The pedestrian bridge motivates you to walk, run, bike and a great place to be with family and friends. You are rewarded with a great view of the river and a way to cross from Nebraska to Iowa on foot. When you cross the bridge there is another big park on the Iowa side. Sometimes concerts are held on both sides and special events. The locals do not recommend fishing in these waters because of recent floods and industries by the river that has left the water contaminated. But you can still find people fishing here. If you travel further past the bridge on the Nebraska side they have a party boat and there are also a few restaurants near the bridge to eat. There are automated rental bikes you can use at the starting point of the bridge on the Nebraska side and fun water park where kids can run around and get wet in the summer and a bit in fall. To use the bikes you must use a special pass or pay $6 in credit for the first hour. If you rather use a boat, they have a dock near by
  • Grab a daily rental bike in the hot summer time there is a station at the spray park on the west side... Or if your in Iowa on the east side tucked under the bridge. Lewis and Clark landing in Nebraska is a find and a great stop. The massive park on the east side is great for large get together and a lazy day enjoying the river.
  • We stumbled across this place by accident. We enjoyed taking photos inside the visitors center with all the Lewis & Clark props. We also thought it was cool to walk from Nebraska to Iowa. They have a marker on the bridge that shows where you cross the state line, which was awesome for pictures. Pretty cool, but definitely not the "hiking" we were looking for.
  • Eh. It's a bridge that leads to nowhere. It's a fun little stop for someone who's never been to Omaha as it is an impressive bridge. Impressive, but pointless.
