The Välkommen Trail opened Saturday, July 29, 2006. The 2.5 mile all-weather bicycle and pedestrian trail was converted from the abandoned Missouri-Pacific and Union Pacific rail beds. The trail, which meanders through our beautiful city, is free for public use year round. At the trails southern most end, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature as you walk across a newly refurbished railroad bridge. The master plan includes several additional phases to the trail, including a skate park located along side the trail. View Trail Map
