Some really great hiking not even a half hour drive from Omaha. Great place to escape the city and spend some time in nature. Trails are all really well maintained and clearly marked. Staff and rangers are all very friendly and helpful. Dogs are allowed on leashes which is abnormal for most hiking in the area. Daily admission is super affordable at just $3 per day per car.
