Your Dog's Favorite Hikes In Nebraska

Submitted by Tara:
Wilderness Park, south west side of Lincoln, Nebraska We love a day-long hike, or even a quick hour or two, amongst cottonwood trees alongside Salt Creek. The trail is over 22 miles long round trip. There are several different parking areas but the prettiest place to start is off 14th Street, south of Yankee Hill Road. Heading on the trail north of the parking area, there is lots of rushing water and thick groves of cottonwoods.

Submitted by Tara:
Indian Cave State Park, along the Missouri river Preferably when ticks aren't in season, trail 10 takes you straight up for a beautiful view and a workout to trail 11, which leads you to the Indian Cave and a dip in the river. Come back by trail 11, then you can head off in several trail options in thick woods, back to camp or the car!
("The trail compels you to know yourself and to be yourself, and puts you in harmony with the universe. It makes you glad to be living. It gives health, hope and courage, and it extends that touch of nature which tends to make you kind." Enos A. Mills, from "Your National Parks")
