Recent rains and flooding has closed a portion of the Steamboat Trace south of Brownville.
The 22-mile trail parallels the Missouri River, which crested above flood stage last week, but river flooding is not the cause of the flooding.
Honey Creek, which empties into the river, extended itself across the trail.
The affected section is from near the Cooper Nuclear Station south of Brownville north to the Honey Creek bridge, a distance of approximately seven miles.
Nemaha Natural Resources District officials have posted signs and barriers to prohibit visitors from accessing the closed section.
Updates on the status of the trail will be made available on the NRD's website www.nemahanrd.org, or contact the office at (402) 335-3325.
