Looking at doing the trail from Norfolk to Valentine and back in Sept. and hopefully will be getting some feedback so I can make plans. The map shows the trail closed going through Long Pine, but I called the Bunkhouse and was told that there is a mile detour onto a gravel road to get around this. That's good news. There's an awesome bridge just outside of Long Pine and the Bunkhouse is decent lodging at a good price. The issue is day one from Norfolk to O'Neill. Unless there are roads not shown on the map, it looks like there are about 40 miles of detours to 275 or 20 on an 80 mile day: 9 miles from Battle Creek to Meadow Grove on 275 13 miles on 275 from Tilden to Neligh 10 miles on 275 from Neligh to Clearwater 8 miles from Inman to O'Neill on 20. Do I have this right? Has anyone found that these detours to pavement can be shortened on gravel? Thanks for any help!
