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.
