Trails/Conservation Corridors

Oak Creek Trail


The NRD is responsible for maintaining and developing approximately 50 miles of recreational trails along three former railroad corridors; the MoPac East Trail, the Oak Creek Trail, and the Homestead Trail.

Voluntary trail passes are available at several sites along all three. The NRD needs your help to keep the trails at their best. Funds from voluntary trail passes are used exclusively for maintaining existing trails and leaves the NRD more funds to spend on major trail improvements and extensions. Please take a moment during your next visit to one of these trails to purchase a pass and tell us about how you use the trails.

The LPSNRD Board of Directors has adopted rules and regulations for public use of conservation corridors. The NRD is committed to doing all we can to assure your trail adventure is a safe, pleasant one. Fortunately, most follow our Rules and Regulations as a courtesy to fellow trail users. Please report any misuse of trails to the Lower Platte South NRD, 402-476-2729, to Crime Stoppers, 402-475-3600, or to the county sheriff.

Have fun and be safe!
