Bordering the Big Papillion Creek for nearly 10 miles, the Big Papio Trail starts in Hefflinger Park and runs south to Seymour Smith Park. Here, it connects to the Keystone Trail, forming an important juncture of the Omaha urban trail network. The paved way crosses through several parks along the way, which are good options for parking and amenities. The most central part of the trail to downtown is the southern section between Towl Park and Seymour Smith Park, which makes for a good 8-mile out and back run.
