The second trace of the West Papio begins at 84th Street, ¾ of a mile north of Highway 370 (¼ mile south of Cornhusker Road). This segment of the trail offers wide open vistas of green fields, forest, parks, Eagle Hills Golf Course, the Berry Farm and several office parks.
The trail terminates near the confluence of the Papillion and Big Papillion Creeks and connects to the Keystone Trail, allowing the avid rider, runner or rollerblader an additional 12 miles to Haworth Park.
The view along both sides of the creek varies with the southwestern side favoring dense woods and agricultural plots and the northeastern containing the golf course, the Berry Farm, and homes. The channel of the Papillion Creek widens at this point and is itself a scenic companion until it merges with the Little Papio Creek.
Future links will connect W. Papio trail to the 144th Street segment. Links to Keystone and Halleck Park Trail to Walnut Creek Recreational Area.
