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.

such a pretty park. it's maintained so well, and the amount of nature it features -- birds, grasses, water, animals, -- all right in the middle of the suburban area is fun to see and enjoy. thanks!

Nice series of walking/biking trails. Deer and various other wildlife species. Nice lake for fishing from the shore as well as on water. Picnic areas and covered shelters. Playgrounds for kids. Seems very safe. Nice to be away from the sounds of the city without traveling far.

Today we had a husky huddle and malamute mingle (H2M2) hike at Chalco Hills. We went around 10 in the morning to avoid a lot of traffic. It was amazing! The view was fabulous, the weather was decent, and we all had a good time. HOWEVER, there were some very rude people there. One man in particular sped past us... More

We live very close to Chalco Hills Rec Area. I love to go out in the early mornings to take our dog for a walk. A few great paved trails to choose from depending on how far you want to go. Their is also mowed cross country trails available too. The boat launch parking lot & ramp are always clean... More

Chalco HIlls has considerably less foot traffic than Lake Zorinsky and yet, I feel is a better option. there are a couple hills which add another cardio element if you are walking or biking around and the wildlife you see is plentiful at all times of the year! Its a great place to relax!
