The Cowboy Trail is a rail trail in northern Nebraska. It is a multi-use recreational trail suitable for bicycling, walking and horseback riding. It occupies an abandoned Chicago and North Western Railway corridor. The trailheads are located in Norfolk and Valentine and the surface is either pavement or crushed limestone.
When completed, the Cowboy Trail will be the world’s longest rails-to-trails bike trail. Currently about two-thirds of the route has been surfaced: the 195 mile stretch between Norfolk and Valentine (where you’ll cross a magnificent old 148 foot high railroad bridge). Some surfaces are paved, while most of the trail uses finely crushed gravel.
Ta-Ha-Zouka Park in Norfolk is a trailhead for the Cowboy Trail.
Horseshoe Bend Park in Tilden, is a 22-acre park that links Tilden to the Cowboy Trail.

#TravelMatters to hometown pride.
Nebraskans have a lot of hometown pride. In March, the state experienced some devastating floods, and many communities that are dependent on tourism have been affected. While a lot of rebuilding has already begun, many of these communities and destinations lost out on months of tourism business. Because of this, we’re encouraging everyone to take an extra getaway this summer and visit one of those affected areas. Parts of Northeastern Nebraska like Niobrara, Verdigre, Fremont, Norfolk, Columbus, Spencer, Monowi and more; and towns along the Missouri River on the eastern border like Brownville - Pick a destination in these areas and spend a weekend… or more! These areas still have plenty to see and do and we know that what you spend while enjoying your getaway will never be appreciated more than right now. Let’s show our hometown pride and give these areas some extra love this summer! #NTTW19 ... See MoreSee Less
