Both are nice trails, but be aware that this trail is only 1.5 miles long and starts at the recreation area. It does cross an old railroad bridge and is a very nice trail... More

We went here on the advice of one of the visitor centers and were warned that it could get pretty crowded, but it seemed like there was so much activity (bored and restless kids stomping and whistling and occasionally shrieking, lots of adults chatting) that the birds veered away and flew on either side of the river. That may be... More

Since most of the land along the Platte River is privately owned, there are few opportunities to view sandhill cranes on their migration which take you to the river. The Hike-bike Bridge is one of the few. It's a short walk to the Bridge from the parking lot. The river is beautiful here, but your crane views are mainly limited... More

It was all cement for 1.5 miles (est.) along a river's edge, out to a lake. Walking at 8:00 a.m. I saw two deer.

Nice view of cranes on Platte. Enjoyed the hike and the $5 entrance fee was resonable.

Kudos to the citizens of Kearney for building such a nice and well maintained bike/walk trail. It is a pretty ride along the Platte and the canal, and for this Colorado girl, it was nice to ride upon a level trail!
