Dust off the road bike and headed to the paved trails. Some people on the trail are rude or dont understand common courtesy. I dont fly around the trail but some people just dont move. I would leaving the headphones at home for safety. Weekday hours are less crowded. Some car breakins in broad daylight. Sometimes you can rent a... More

The trails are in ok shape but beware of avid bikers and runners who feel they own the area. The park area is ok for kids but don't take them on a bike adventure...they may get knocked down running or biking.

The Zorinsky trail and the adjoining West Papio trail are great for a Sunday bike ride. The lake itself appears small but has lots of segments that branch off. The bike trail is mixed use (pedestrians and cyclists) and has lots of greenery.

I live downtown so I come to the lake to escape the traffic I run with. The lake is about 7.5 miles if you go around both sides. It has quite a bit of shade for Nebraska and has plenty of restrooms along the path. Lots to do at the park!

Whether I'm out for a shorter bike ride, or heading to the other side for a longer road tour, this is a nice place to include.

Looking to get out and enjoy the outdoors? There is a wonderful around the lake asphalt/concrete trail that wanders around this lake. With the bridge at 168th Street, you can do change up the lengths and routes. We like the east loop, which is almost exactly 4.5 miles. Park off of 156th Street entrance and complete one loop on the... More

With clean nicely maintained facilities, walkways and grills, Lake Zorinsky makes a great year round location to be outside. There are soccer fields and picnic beaches, a large lake and boating ramps. It has spacious walkways that circle the entire lake and benches if you need to sit down. Grab a snack, maybe some friends and enjoy!
