Norfolk

When the Cowboy Trail and Elkhorn River help define a place, expect epic biking, hiking and river-running. 

As a trailhead for the 195-mile Cowboy Trail, Norfolk has a way with hikers, bikers, stroller-pushers and leisurely walkers. Find the trailhead in Ta-Ha-Zouka Park, where you can camp and enjoy the Elkhorn River. Fish or hook up with NorthFork Outfitting to rent a kayak, stand-up paddleboard or other vessel to experience the river up-close. When you're hungry, try any of Norfolk's locally owned, original restaurants or craft breweries. And for a taste of local history, stop into the Elkhorn Valley Museum. Amid agricultural exhibits, check out the gallery dedicated to Johnny Carson, who considered Elkhorn his hometown.
