WAHOO – The trail between the City of Wahoo and Lake Wanahoo is open again.

The trail closed signs came down July 3.

The trail has been closed since March, when the floodwaters from the nearby Sand Creek had their way in several places along the rock surfaced path between Placek Park and Lake Wanahoo Recreation Area north of Wahoo.

Wahoo Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Stuhr said the major repairs from the flooding were completed.

Parks and Recreation Department staff spent some time the day before the reopening was reopened to trim trees and mow along the trail.

The City of Wahoo is working with the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to receive funding for the repairs.
