Cowboy Trails Master Plan: A collaboration between the Rails-To-Trails
Conservancy and The Clark Enersen Partners, February 1997. The Cowboy Trail,
the nation’s longest rail to trail conversion, was once part of the Chicago

northern Nebraska from Norfolk to Chadron. This Master Plan describes the
trail development and planning process.
