Chalco Hills is the best in-town hiking opportunities, if not the best. Outside of town, Fontanelle Forest and Neale Woods are the best local hikes. By hiking, I do not mean going under power lines, next to a busy road or walking around houses. Chalco Hills has a variety of ecosystems you can hike around. There is a main trail... More

A great place for a jog, a bike ride or to wet a line. Large enough to be uncrowded and small enough to enjoy it all in a day. Good pan fishing, great trails and plenty of wildlife in the city.

We had our family pictures professionally done at Chalco Hills and really enjoyed the scenery and views. Lots of options for pictures and hiking. Diverse plant and tree life for those interested in exploring. Clean and well kept.

My only suggestion is to put up maps (signs) or offer them (brochures)... we got lost walking around the lake.

Chalco Hills is a great hiking area in the city limits. Off all the city parks, this one is the cleanest. It has a paved nice trail around the lake. The bonus is a great tree and plant diversity for botany nerds like me. Not every too busy on the main trails. The real beauty is in on the less... More

Chalco is one of the nicer places to walk in Omaha. It is close to our house so we go there frequently. There is a leash-free dog area so you can actually walk with your dog (unlike some of the other dog parks where there is a leash-free area, but no trail). There are several issues with the trail: it... More

I enjoy a run around Chalco hills. The paved trail is approximately 6 miles around the lake or 4 miles if you take the "short cut" bridge. There is always wildlife including deer and turkey. It is not crowded after work on weekdays but there is usually enough other people that I feel safe and not alone. The only draw... More

I personally think this is the best place to bike and walk your dods in the Omaha area. There are no houses around and it is very peaceful.
