One of Nebraska’s best hiking trails is also one of the least-known. Like so many great things in Nebraska, it isn’t advertised or overt; it has to be discovered. Bison Trail links Toadstool Geologic Park with Hudson-Meng Bison Bonebed, both popular attractions in western Nebraska. The trail will take you over part of a protected grassland and through one of the most unique landscapes in the state.
A very important note of caution: this area is unique and fragile. It is susceptible to erosion by careless visitors. If you hike this trail, stay on the trail and do not pick up any fossils, rocks, or artifacts that you may find along the way. Don’t attempt to scale the rock formations.
Part of the beauty of this trail is that it is not one of the state’s most popular; on the right day you can hike it without encountering another person outside of the attractions at the beginning and end. Cell phone reception can be spotty in the area, so for safety’s sake be sure to let someone know where you’ll be before you embark on this beautiful walk through some of Nebraska’s most breathtaking land.
