“great hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

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.

“Great Multi-Use Trail System”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

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.

“Glad to find this park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

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.

“Fun & easy singletrack”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

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.

“Love, love, love wilderness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

This park saves my sanity on a weekly basis. Extensive hiking, biking, and equestrian trails. Great for shorter trips or all day excursions. It's not a manicured area....so bring bug spray and proper footware. Be courteous to all types of users so we can keep sharing.
