Omaha homes with access to trails?

Asked by Dryfly, Mill Valley, CA Mon Dec 17, 2012

My wife and I are considering a relocation from San Francisco to Omaha. We are both outdoor enthusiasts (trail running, mountain biking, hiking). Are there neighborhoods in Omaha that offer immediate access to trails (dirt trails, not paved ones) for these activities? Ideally, right out the front door. We would like to be in Dist. 66, Elkhorn, or Millard due to the high quality of the schools. Thanks for your help.

There are trails all over Omaha. I got online and googled trails in Omaha and found that there's map's you can look at. There are some hiking trails outside of Omaha about thirty minutes away. Cant remember which way or the name of it though. Sorry

My office is located in a model where right behind me the Papio Creek Watershed Partnership is developing a Dam site that will have a man-made lake with trails as you have interest in. Please call/text or email me via

I look forward to hearing from you. I'm a triathlete and understand the importance of having a close and safe place to ride.

Plenty of opportunities at all price levels. Omaha has a strong park system and the trails are connected so you can go from dam site to dam site. Let me know when you are coming out and your other parameters and Ill set up up. Price range, style of house, number of beds bath etc. Please feel free to email your list to Thanks for your interest in Omaha. I've moved two people to san Francisco this year. What a coincidence.
