Did you know that Lincoln is home to more than 131 miles of hard surface and crushed rock trails?
About one million treks happen on the trails every year, and they welcome hikers, bikers, and joggers.
Highlights near our downtown Lincoln apartments include:
Named after a local bicycle shop owner, the John Dietrich Bikeway winds through the city for over three miles. Constructed in 1985, it connects the downtown UNL campus with the East campus. The path resulted from the NE Radial Use Project, and riders find it also runs through three city parks.
Running along the Antelope Creek channel, the Billy Wolff Trail features fifteen below-grade street crossings. Also named after local bicycle shop owner, this path connects residents to nature. The Botanical Gardens can be accessed from the northern end, while the southern section features Holmes Lake Park. Along the way, explorers will also see a golf course and enjoy areas that are both scenic and serene.
Stretching four miles, the Salt Creek Levee Trail meanders past the city's oldest neighborhoods and underneath a picturesque bridge. The northern section leads to Lincoln's baseball stadium and the historic Haymarket District. On the southern end, visitors can explore a nature sanctuary featuring elk, bison, and white-tailed deer.
The Murdock Trail travels approximately five miles through northern Lincoln and the Havelock neighborhood. It runs along the former Rock Island Railroad corridor, which was founded in the mid-1850s to ferry passengers across the Midwest. The trail was dedicated in 1994, and it connects to Mahoney Park.
