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.

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:

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.
