SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. — A volunteer group is considering a system of trails that would span thousands of acres of public land in the Panhandle.
After spending 24 years amassing about 37,000 acres of land for public use and wildlife conservation, Platte River Basin Environments, a nonprofit corporation made up of western Nebraska sportsmen, is weighing opportunities for biking, hiking and horseback riding paths in the Wildcat Hills.
