Trails in Nebraska???

I'm going to visit my parents in Nebraska for Easter, and my Dad would love for me to take him wheeling, but I can't find any trails within four hours of where they live. He lives in a little town called Broken Bow, it's in Custer County. If anyone knows of any trails around the area, please share. Thanks.

Haven't they heard of Halsey? More specifically, the Nebraska National Forest at Halsey. It's about 40 miles west of Broken Bow on Hwy 2 and the park is about 1 mile west of town. There's hundreds of thousands of acres to drive on. Lots of trails for trucks and Jeeps and ATV's too. I have spent a LOT of time up there the last 3 years and have recently mapped all the trails with GPS for a "Travel Managment Plan" that will take effect next winter. Anyway, here are some pics...

This is typical of what is there. It's all sandhills.

This is the hill climb.

Another trail. This one's in the trees.

It really is a cool place. Lots of trails in the trees but even more out in the wide open sand hills. If you're used to 'wheelin in Colorado you might get bored because there are no rocks. All sand. But if you want to just get away for some easy drivin' I would definitely check it out.

Unfortunately, there are not very good maps of the trails - which is why I made my own. Their maps only show the main ones.

I wish I could go with you guys and show it to you, but our group isn't going up there until April...

I have TONS more pictures and videos. If you want some more, I can send you some on e-mail. Have fun if you go!

Ha ha, broken bow is out in the boonies!! Don't worry I am from a town of 700 people in Nebraska so that is right up my alley. I do not know of any "trails" but I can tell you there's lots of open road and cornfields to drive!

I'm a little late to the party, but check out this thread and bump it if you head back out to the Broken Bow area-

http://www.nebraska4x4.org/index.php?topic=60.0

It is private land that is wheeled once in awhile, but with enough notice you might be able to give them enough time to round up some other local 4x4 guys. Also see the Canyon Crawl thread in the trip reports subforum for more pictures and keep an eye out for Canyon Crawl 2011 info to get posted later in the summer.
