This Hike In Nebraska Will Give You An Unforgettable Experience

Hiking anywhere in Nebraska is a memorable experience, but the Cowboy Trail has got to be one of the most notable hiking trails in the state. Converted from a disused railroad corridor, the Cowboy Trail, when finished, will be the largest “rails-to-trails” conversion in the country. It sits currently at 195 miles running from Norfolk to Valentine. When completed, it will stretch all the way to Chadron and clock in at 321 miles overall.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
