Each year about a million “treks” happen on Lincoln’s trails. With over 131 miles of hard surface and crushed rock trails, you can get just about anywhere you want to go using both on and off street routes. There are also several miles of hiker/biker trails within our parks making our system top notch. Whether you ride, run, jump or skip, using Lincoln’s trails are the perfect way to stay fit and save gas!
We are always making improvements to our trails system. Check back often for updates on our current and future projects.
Current projects include:
- Renovation of the Boosalis Trail between 27th and 48th Streets will begin the week of September 30, 2013 and will continue through the end of November. This project involves the removal of the existing trail and replacing it with 10 feet wide concrete. Work will begin at 27th and proceed east. The contractor is expected to close down sections at a time beginning with the 27th to 33rd section, then 33rd to 40th and finally 40th to 48th. During the initial phase, the Rock Island Trail will be closed on the north side of Hwy. 2 for approximately 2 weeks to allow for completion of that section.
- Pioneers Park Trail will be renovated beginning the first week of October, 2013 and is expected to be completed the end of November. The trail being renovated is the asphalt trail that begins near the east entrance to the park, proceeding west near the columns, sled run and then west to the Pioneers Park Nature Center. The existing asphalt trail will be replaced with an 8 feet wide concrete trail.
