Looking to ride across Nebraska and include the full length of the Cowboy Trail. A couple questions: 1. Better to ride West to East? Or East to West? For context, this would likely be in June. 2. I know the CT doesn't go across the entire state, so is there a road(s) that's best to ride on after the trails ends on both the West and East sides? Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello, I would ride the shoulder on HWY 20 going westbound from Valentine, I believe there are some small segments completed around Chadron you may want to jump back on to check out. Going east from Norfolk you could take some small county roads to Stanton and then to Beemer (use google maps). Then after that the paved roads are pretty few and far between and pretty busy. I would maybe have your phone charged up and do some gravel riding.. It also depends on what your terminus is on the east side. Good Luck
