Best Nebraska State Parks for Hiking

Strap on your boots and get hiking amid ancient forests and impressive canyons - breathtaking scenes are guaranteed.

  • Ponca State Park

    Emerald forest lines Ponca State Park's stretch of the Missouri River. Hikers will have a field day scaling the bluffs to gain mesmerizing views over the surrounding scenery, while clearly marked trails help you get the most out of this glorious natural haven.

  • Fort Robinson State Park

    Pines stretch for 22,000 acres through this spectacular State Park. Hikers will be rewarded with fascinating Old West heritage and history exhibits, and sights of buffalo and longhorn herds which seem to belong to a different time. The former US Army fort was declared a National Historic Landmark in the sixties, and played a pivotal role in the Sioux Wars a hundred years earlier. Make time to visit the plaque that marks the site of Crazy Horse's tragic death during the Battle of Warbonnet Creek in 1876.

  • Chadron State Park

    Nebraska's oldest state park remains a favourite for those who enjoy a slower pace of life. The grand Pine Ridge forms a dramatic backdrop for the park, which has an elevation of around 5000 feet, while nearly a thousand acres of parkland are available to the eager hiker - expect miles of scenic trails interspersed with picnic areas, grills, and other handy facilities.

  • Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge -

    Maintained by the National Parks Service, the secluded canyons and hiking trails of Fort Niobrara are worth a mention. There are few sights more rewarding on a long hike than that of Snake River Falls, which shoots out over a 54-ft-wide ledge in a canyon clearing.
