  • Any amount helps, trails are expensive to build and maintain!


A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

Because of the Coronavirus outbreak with people mostly confined to their homes, the trails have found great importance. Even though fitness centers, gymnasiums and malls finally opened again, they operated at limited capacity, and people continued to use the trails for relaxation, exercise, and stress relief. Children/parents are continuing to ride bicycles, mothers are pushing strollers, people walking dogs, runners, walkers and cyclists are using the trails in higher numbers because of the virus, and the numbers have continued to remain high. Trails help people maintain a healthy lifestyle during a time of separation from others!

Staying active by running, walking or biking on the trails, people lose weight, stay motivated and many go on to run half or full marathons, or bike multi-day bike rides. They wouldn’t be able to achieve this without utilizing the trails we have!

Nebraska Trails Foundation (NTF) is an important partner in the acquisition, development and promotion of the multi-use recreational trails across Nebraska. NTF participates in the purchase and acquisition of abandoned railway lines used for multi-use trails. The trails are used by the public for transportation, recreation and promotion of healthy lifestyles, all while preserving the environment.
