144th Street Trail
1010 S 144th St, Omaha, NE
The 144th Street Trail connects the many residential neighborhoods of western Omaha to popular running spots such as Zorinsky Lake and Wehrspann Lake (part of the Chalco Hills Recreation Area). At nearly 8 miles in length, the concrete multi-use path is an option as part of a long run if you don’t mind a bit of a challenge! Unlike many of the popular running routes in Omaha, the trail is extremely hilly, with plenty of challenging ascents. If you need to get some hill work in, this is the perfect place to do so. There is plenty of parking along the trail, as there are several commercial areas and a high school with available parking in addition to lots at the trailheads. Although there is some shade along the route, it is not considerable. Come prepared with your own water unless you are parking near one of the trailheads at Zorinsky Lake or Chalco Hills Recreation Area.
