A fun little trail through the woods along Salt Creek! It’s shaded for the most part and there’s parking nearby. No bathrooms though!
What a rockin' place. I was traveling around and just happened to stop for the night in Lincoln when, soon after, I looked for a place to run. I don't know if people in Lincoln realize this - most towns don't have such a trail on the ready. Lots of little animals, well groomed trail that would serve for solid barefoot runs for a dainty runner like myself, and a lot of distance so you don't have to loop endlessly. In my silliness, I'd love to see this wilderness park extended throughout Lincoln, connecting routes with daily destinations (1 the town may already have this, and I don't know and 2 that's simply what I want in my Utopia, a world where we're outside all the time cycling between runs, naps, and eating until the end of time - thankfully I'm not in charge...of anything). What good fortune I had finding this place. If I was promoting Lincoln, this (I know football might be up on the list around here) would be my starting point. Well done.
