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 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/
