Winding through wooded areas, grassland vistas and fields of corn and soybeans, the Blue River Rail
Trail is open for walkers, joggers and bicyclists. The 11.5 mile trail offers views of the river, wildlife
sightings and the music of songbirds. With a surface of crushed limestone screenings the trail meets
with the Homestead Trail at the Nebraska border. Riders can make the trek from Marysville all the way
to Lincoln, Nebraska. The next connection will be from the Blue River Rail Trail’s Jayhawk Road Trailhead
to the historic Union Pacific Railroad Depot in downtown Marysville.
