A walk along Douglas’ expansive pathway system is always enjoyable, especially in the morning and evening hours when the wildlife is most prevalent. The concrete sidewalk - perfect for walking, jogging and cycling follows the North Platte River.
If you enjoy taking photographs, be sure to bring your camera. There’s an abundance of wildlife, including numerous species of birds, that live along the pathway.
You will often see people fishing along the banks of the river and there are lots of great access points along the route.
There are restrooms available along both the north and south sections of the path.
