You’ve Never Experienced Anything Like This Epic Abandoned Railroad Hike In Nebraska

In its early days, Nebraska depended on the railroads, not just for supplies but to financially support entire towns. Even today, when our reliance on railroads is lessened, there are reminders everywhere of Nebraska’s long relationship with them. The Cowboy Trail is perhaps the best example of this relationship.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Communities along the Cowboy Trail are all happy to accommodate travelers; you can stop in to eat, camp, or stay at a hotel at many points along the way. See the Nebraska Game and Parks page on the Cowboy Trail for more information.
