Similar to the Keystone Trail, in that the path perches high above a creek, which it follows for the length of the hike, this trail is located even farther out in the vast suburban belt of west Omaha. Several miles past the end of this hike, the Big Papio Trail joins up with the Keystone Trail, running south to Bellevue and the Missouri River. A mecca for explorers and travelers since the days of Lewis and Clark and pioneer settlers heading west in covered wagons, eastern Nebraska offers a wide variety of hikes, from pleasant city strolls to rugged backcountry treks. Lincoln and Omaha, the state’s two largest cities, have well-developed networks of urban trails, while in the countryside numerous trails wind through woodsy, hilly landscapes, belying Nebraska’s reputation of being nothing but flat, open plains.
