Four of us are planning to bike the Cowboy trail from Valentine to Norfolk starting May 16. Anyone know the status of traveling to Nebraska from out of state and also if campgrounds or town parks for camping are open? Any trail conditions we need to know about? Thank you for any advice.

Hi Peg, The trail is open but does have some closures still from the flood sustained last year. You will have to detour around the areas marked as they are impassable for the most part, most use the highway shoulder to get around the detours. As far as camping, the towns along the trail have city parks available for camping but as to their open status, you will have to call ahead. Enjoy your trip!

We have this same question! Three of us were planning on walking the trail this month/June. Are the detours troublesome and really out of the way? (I'm not sure how close the highways are to the trail.)

The detours are easy. Highway 20 parallels the trail most of the way. No problem!

Greg, Thanks for the updates. Hitting the trail the weekend of 7/11 and looking forward to it.
