My buddy and I are returning home in late August via Nebraska and are planning a full day to do part of the Cowboy Trail. We would like to pick out a 60-70 mile segment and cover that in an out and back. Since neither of us have been there any recommendations on favorite parts of the trail, places to see, lodging and places to eat would be appreciated. Thx Gus

The trail between Valentine and Long Pine is typically considered the most scenic. Valentine to Johnstown and back would be about 72 miles. There's a fun bar in Johnstown called L-Bow-Room to have lunch at. There's lots of great things to do in Valentine as well like tubing/canoeing down the Niobrara.

Lots of great things to do in Norfolk too! We've got tubing and kayaking on the Elkhorn River and the North Fork River Trail, as well as an amazing new downtown Riverpoint Shopping and Entertainment District!

Don't miss the canoeing/tubing/kayaking in Valentine. We've done that long before there was a cowboy trial. Outfitters there are very user friendly. EDIT: I wouldn't recommend canoeing over the fourth of July......especially if you have youngsters along. It's very, very busy and there are a lot of college kids during that time the kids might see some things they shouldn't.
