CRC - Trail, Giltner, Nebraska

CRC - Trail, Giltner, Nebraska

DESCRIPTION

From Interstate 80 exit 324 proceed South to Giltner. After crossing the railroad continue South until the stop sign. Go east 2 miles on the paved road, at the bottom of the hill go north 1/8th mile and run west and you will see the lodge. The trail begins just north of the lodge on the tree line looking over the valley.

The trail is a varied mix of single track and wider maintained walking trails thru the native praire. Water crossings with several bridges tie in 40 acers of trails that can be ridden by all skill levels.

The trail works the ridge of the valley with some nice down hill sections that can drop 30+ feet in elevation. Several terraces provide some nice air that calls to be repeated several times.

There are bathrooms and water in the main lodge that is open durning the day. A shelter and fire pit are availble for meals and relaxing. There is also a basketball court and a canoe lake on the acreage.

Camping is very secluded, as it should be! Its a great way to unwind and "get off the grid".

Ajoining the acerage is a nice paved road that was completed if you want to bring a road bike as well. Not much traffic and a good even grade.

All in all its a great ride for Central Nebraska.

To start this review I would add to the previous review and say that the rock road you turn onto is road "K". The Christian Resource Center is at the top of the hill on the left hand side of the road.
This trail is good for those who want to ride for a short time or don't mind riding over the same trail. It's approximately 2-3 miles in length if you ride every trail. The scenery is o.k. and the trail is mostly non-technical with short ups and downs. There are no jumps, log crossings or other difficult parts in this trail. It will make demands on your cardiovascular and legs though. These trails are tough to rate because the rider that is physically capable of riding this trail is probably going to be bored by it's level of technicality.
Clearly the best part of this trail is the level of hospitality of those working and living at this Christian Resource Center. I cannot say enough about these awesome folks.
