Been here a few times now in various seasons. It's neat to have a relatively wild area so close to the center of Lincoln -- wish it was bigger! Lots to see just taking a nice stroll along the hiking trails. It'd be nice if there were benches every mile or so, and if bikers would stay off the hiking... More

Wilderness Park is a great place to stroll through nature. YOu can take a short trip or the entire day hiking in the woods viewing birds, deer and other wildlife.

I love taking the dogs on hikes at Wilderness Park. The trails are well-marked and well-trodden, but keep a sharp eye out for bicyclists - they seem to appear from nowhere and with no warning. The trails are marked for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders, and I think people pretty much mind the signs. There are folks who will let... More

Nice trails for the single track bikers and OK place to run but it is wilderness you may see deer and turkeys or find frames discarded from stolen bikes. To bad they don't clear out some sections into more family friendly park areas. Interesting place to run with friends a bit scary to go alone.

Wilderness Park is literally off the beaten path. Take the name of it a bit literally. Not the curated paths you might see in some parks. But lovely, nature!

this park has some good hiking trails. it takes a few trips to find a favorite trail, but if you like to hike, then you will find one. lots of trees and flowers in the spring and fall. can get crowded.

Wildneress has a multi-use trail system for bikers, walkers/runners and equestrian to share. The trails are all singletrack and great for beginning mountian bikers.. It's great having such a large wilderness area so close to Lincoln.

We were looking for a place to walk with our dog and found this place on the map. It was on the opposite side of town from our motel, but Lincoln is small so it did not take long to find. Nice trails in a real woods setting.

The trail is used for biking and walking/running. Super easy singletrack with one or two quick drops, but mainly flat and flowy, with some roots here and there.
