The Great Plains Trails Network is a group of citizens who advocate and support a network of trails in and around Lincoln and Lancaster County, Nebraska, for jogging, biking, walking and horseback riding. Our website furthers our mission by providing ways for you to learn more and get involved. Thanks for visiting. Your support is appreciated.
The Lincoln Trail-A-Thon is a challenge to ride, run, or walk all the trails within the Lincoln City limits in 2023. When you finish you will have covered just over 92 miles of trails. This fun challenge was started to inspire individuals to be healthier by getting outdoors to enjoy the amazing trails system in Lincoln. But even more, it is to: (1) GIVE back (2) EXPLORE new trails (3) CONQUER a common goal.
Trail Trek is a popular community fundraising event that encourages families to explore Lincoln’s 134-mile trails system. A variety of routes and distances appeal to both novice and experienced riders. Each participant receives lunch, t-shirt and a logoed item. This year we've added a natural surface (single track) route.
Explore Lincoln by bike on the trails. Each ride features a different quadrant of the city. Meet at the Jayne Snyder Trails Center (21st and Q) Union Plaza Park every Thursday in May. Routes are subject to change, refreshments 15 minutes before each ride, no registration fee, just show up and ride. Helmets are required.
Current fundraising efforts are focused on exciting projects including the Prairie Corridor on Haines Branch and the Wilderness Park Master Plan. We are helping Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department raise funds that will enhance the trail accessibility.
