The Cowboy Trail - Rails to Trails Biking & Hiking

The Cowboy Trail stretches from Norfolk to Valentine. The crushed limestone trail follows the gentle hills and curves of an abandoned railroad. Its longest and most spectacular bridge is just outside Valentine, soaring 148 feet above the Niobrara River. The trail is open a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. Go to Trailhead Park on south Main Street in Valentine. (402) 471-0641 or visit
