Your 4 season, family fun, Nebraska Sandhills adventure awaits!
Fort Falls at Fort Niobrara NWR
For a safe and zen like experience, head to Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge's Fort Falls.
A sturdy trail with a bridge and metal stairs will lead you down to the Niobrara River Valley floor where you can experience Fort Falls. As you descend, the change in temperature and humidity is refreshing.
A little trail will take you out to the Niobrara River, which can be slippery when the leaves have fallen, or is snow covered - but worth it. Here you can either turn around and go back the way you came or continue on the pathway where you can hike to the top of the canyon walls for the river view below.
Benches are placed strategically for views, visits, and that zen experience nature infuses into our soul.
This hike is under a mile. Hikers can also roam over the prairie to the wilderness area which is open to the public.
