Fall is no doubt the greatest time for a hike in Nebraska. The lovely colors, the crisp air, the milder temperatures, and the crunch of leaves under your feet all add up to a memorable hiking experience. There are so, so many terrific places to hike in Nebraska, and today we’re taking you to Chalco Hills Recreation Area in Sarpy County.

Chalco Hills is a special place to spend a day enjoying nature by yourself or with friends or family. It’s so peaceful that you’d never know you were so close to the city, but it’s easily accessible so if you’re coming from the Omaha metro area you won’t have to drive hours to get there.
