The Cowboy Trail runs 321 miles across northern Nebraska, following the old Chicago & Northwestern rail route. The railroad called this the "Cowboy Line." Cowboy Trail Valentine High Bridge over the Niobrara River
Near Valentine, the Cowboy Trail crosses 150 feet above the Niobrara River

When completed, the Cowboy Trail will be the world's longest rails-to-trails bike trail. Currently about two-thirds of the route has been surfaced: the 195 mile stretch between Norfolk and Valentine (where you'll cross a magnificent old 148 foot high railroad bridge). Some surfaces are paved, while most of the trail uses finely crushed gravel.

Saw a bald eagle. That made it worth it.
