You can enjoy this park in a reasonable short period of time and it's well worth the visit if you're interested in artifacts from past migration on the Oregon Trail. There are even wagon ruts that remain visible to this day.

We had visited Ash Hollow several years ago and been so impressed that we decided to revisit on our recent trip to Nebraska. We weren't disappointed, although after so many years and on such a hot day the walks at the different sites were more...More

There are several sites in this park. The wagon ruts are at the southern most site, and the walk up the hill past the ruts (which are now eroded in areas to 10 feet deep) is beautiful. Lots of prairie plants to see. Few people...More

Hoped to see wagon ruts but didn't. The place is in a beautiful setting and we did enjoy that. A small museum in the main welcome center and then some trails to walk - some were steep, so wear tennis shoes. The cave entrance actually...More

Ash Hollow State Park has many enjoyable aspects -- the Oregon Trail history is, of course, paramount. The ruts of the trail make the historical experience live. The park also has many miles of great hiking trails, as well as great views of the Platte...More

Worth a quick stop if you are in the area. Watch for the boots on the fence posts! Good information on markers.

I really wanted to see the wagon ruts from the Oregon Trail. I saw a rock ledge covered by a building, a pond that was supposed to be a fresh spring bubbling from the rocks, and hill with a gully filled in with trees. I...More
