Trail Danger

The City of Lincoln has begun work to repair its Jamaica North Trail, which continues north from the NRD's Homestead Trail, just south of Saltillo Road, at about 24th Street. Heavy equipment is in use and is being stored at the Trailhead along Saltillo Road. Homestead users are asked to avoid the area until work is completed. Please utilize the Roca Trailhead for parking if you plan to walk or ride the Homestead Trail from the Lincoln end.
