Oak Creek Trail

The Oak Creek Trail connects Valparaiso and Brainard.

The damaged stretch of the Oak Creek Trail near Valparaiso -- closed since August 2019 -- is expected to reopen in the spring.

The Lower Platte South Natural Resources District board last week approved a nearly $230,000 construction contract to repair erosion damage.

High water had eroded the streambank close to the trail, but High Plains Enterprises of Martell -- using plans prepared by Olsson -- will stabilize the bank and realign the trail.

The 12-mile recreational trail connects Valparaiso with Brainard.
