If you live anywhere near this trail and are looking for a quick 30-60 min ride- this is a great little trail. It’s paved the entire way - less a few transitions here and there- and is a very smooth ride start to finish. Plenty of shade for the bulk of the ride as well. Nothing too fancy, but if you have a limited amount of time and just need to go blow off a little bit of steam, this is perfect!
Parked in the new trailhead in Wabash NE complete with toilet facilities and gravel lot for 20 cars. Rode to Eagle and back. Clean and beautifully maintained crushed gravel trail. Nice bridges. You could probably ride a road bike on it because it was fairly smooth. I rode a mountain bike and my friend had a hybrid. Appx 27 mi round trip. Less than a 40 min drive from Omaha and 45 from Council Bluffs IA.

Surprised to see this amazing trail that has great bed and breakfasts along it is not noted as part of the Great American Rail Trail. It sure would help demonstrate more GART completion if it was.
Nice trailhead now open at Wabash.
This is a great trail, easy to ride, very scenic, many small friendly towns along the way. Well packed, crushed limestone.
Every Tuesday May - September is the "Nacho Ride" to Eagle.
6 Thursdays in the summer "The Pie Ride" to Elmwood happens

Best news: project to complete "the gap" from Wabash to South Bend is started. At each end there is a kiosk with a map of the interim route which is on low traveled gravel roads and a country highway.
There are paved concrete trails throughout the park as well as dirt hiking trails. The park has an abundance of wildlife to include a large herd of deer, turkeys, raccoons and a pair of nesting bald eagles.
Overall, the trail was in good shape. A few horse piles, as well as dog droppings, but not horrible. 1 tree branch down, but easily passed through.
I went both ways from the Louisville trailhead by the highway and it was a good ride with some fun bridges.
Easy access from I 80 if you are passing through. Beautiful trail with lot's of rail road history.
The portion between Peru and Brownville has recently been reopened since the 2019 floods. There are portions of extremely loose, fine gravel. Not suitable for thin tires.
Hopefully a few rains and continued traffic will pack the trail.
There are soft spots on the portion between NE City and Peru, as well, but the material is squishier. Seems to be ground up asphalt.
At the end of the day, gorgeous trail that's on the mend from a "500-year" flood.
44.3 miles out and back. Beautiful ride through cornfields and trees… Good amount of shade. The only downside is no water available on the trail so make sure you have plenty!
The Historic Trails Center at the southern end of the trail was not open when I did the trail in mid Sept. No parking available. However, lots of parking available at the Council Bluffs Recreational complex about 1/2 east on the same road and there is a nice bike trail that connects to the Riner Front Trail.
from brownsville to peru is now open. they have put down a layer of crushed rock on several miles-from brownville north for about 2 miles- and it is very soft. will be until it rains to help pack it. probably not great for skinny tires
