“A scenic rail-to-trail conversion from Beatrice, NE to the Kansas border and the Blue River Trail.”— Alex Duryea
Family Friendly A nice path to explore along the river with good entry/exit points to create shorter day hikes.
Along the way, hikers can expect to travel on a pleasant gravel doubletrack, which offers plenty of time to take in the scenery around you. As this trail is nearly 24 miles long, it passes through a variety of environments. Along the way, there will be towering cottonwoods and ample undergrowth.
This route continues as the Blue River Trail from the Kansas border down to Marysville, KS.
