Cowboy Trail

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.
