Best Time of Year to Complete the Cowboy Trail

We are planning to ride the Cowboy Trail this year and are wondering what month would be best time to ride.

The cowboy trail can be a great experience any time of the year but each season has their pros and cons. Planning for the weather you may experience is the key to having a good experience on the trail IMO. Nebraska's forecasted weather can vary greatly day to day at any time of the year. Spring - higher potential for rain, but temps are generally pleasant. Summer - can be windy, can get very hot/humid. Fall - can get unpredictably cold overnight, rain, hail, snow possible. Generally I enjoy spring and early fall the most but it helps being local to plan around the weather. If I were to pick, I think the best two months to try and hit the trail are May and September.
