Section of Cowboy Trail closed east of Valentine

LINCOLN, Neb. – The Cowboy Trail between the Niobrara River and the Hwy. 20 parking lot outside of Valentine is closed, due to user safety concerns, until further notice. Significant hillside erosion has occurred near the trail and will require repair.

The bridge over the Niobrara River is accessible from any trail access point in Valentine but will no longer be accessible by the Hwy. 20 parking lot.
