The Beautiful Bridge Hike In Nebraska That Will Completely Mesmerize You

Some of the most interesting trails to hike and bike in Nebraska are those that came about from a rails-to-trails conversion. This type of conversion takes unused railroad corridors and recasts them as recreational trails for everyone to use. This trail in Merrick and Hamilton Counties is a great example of what can come from this transformation.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Dark Island Trail is such a lovely way to spend an afternoon getting some fresh air with family or enjoying some alone time. Have you ever traveled this trail? Share your experiences in the comments, and don’t forget to join our Nebraska Nature Lovers group on Facebook to see and share great photos of Nebraska.

Of course, we couldn’t talk about bridge hikes without mentioning the most well-known bridge hike in Nebraska: the Cowboy Trail.
