Frisco Highline Trail

Nice ride

June, 2024 by joglazewski

Rode the 16 mile section from Springfield to Walnut Grove on hybrid bikes. The first 8 miles on 10 ft wide asphalt in decent shape through woodlands. Adjacent to road and past light industrial areas but buffered by vegetation. Next 8 miles on packed gravel through meadows and farmland.

Fulbright Spring Greenway

Once is enough

June, 2024 by joglazewski

Narrow, twisty, paved trail with sharp hills (trappy) runs besides, over and in three places through a lovely creek. Mostly shaded, scenic enough but nasty on a road bike. Maybe a Mountain bike?

James River Greenway

We found no way to connect with another trail and a narrow bridge (2 lane car bridge without and bike lane or walkway) crosses the river. Nicely surfaced path rides alongside the river.

Galloway Creek Greenway

Nice trail for a short bike ride, good asphalt or concrete surfaces, wide enough to pass walkers. Trail appeared to have ways to connect easily with other trails.

Great trail. I started at lost hill trailhead and went west. There were even 2 port-a-John’s there. The trail was either blacktop or cement at least 7’ wide. Mileage markets every tenth of a mile. Very enjoyable, and well groomed. Great discovery near my hotel!

If you are heading south on the trail from Bolivar when you pass 120 rd about a Quater mile 2 dogs will attack you. I will not ride that way again. Its safer on 13 highway

Frisco Highline Trail

A hidden gem

June, 2023 by wegot2go

Started in Springfield. Rode 12.5 miles before turning around. Well maintained trail. First 8 miles paved then gravel. Trail mostly lush and shaded. Several places to eat along the paved path.

Wilson's Creek Greenway

Parked at Taj's trailhead. Started up the hill going north. At the top of the hill there is a gate with a large padlock on it. I could go no further unless I were to lift my bicycle over the gate.

Cute

Cute little trail and it’s all paved

Wilson's Creek Greenway

Great trail-poor markings even using Traillink map!

September, 2021 by longellob

We parked at Tal's Trailhead and went North. There were some challenging hills as the path wandered through open pasture and forest. We followed the map from TrailLink and missed the path twice which kind of screwed up our mileage goal! We stopped at Rutledge Wilson's Farm Park...what a treat! Don't pass this stop up. A working farm with opportunity to interact with the goats, mini-ponies and sheep. We started back to ride the South Creek Greenway and realized the beginning of that trail was at the top of a large hill and a bit of the path is on a very busy road. We watched a cyclist navigate the traffic and decided to call it quits! Always enjoy riding new trails and this experience would have been better with trail markings.

Galloway Creek Greenway

Great for my first "trail" walk!

July, 2021 by lreno9771

I started at Pershing school and walked in one mile. The trail was fantastic ( I am used to my gravel on where I live); and had mile markers on the asphalt every .2 miles. Asphalt all the way I walked and mostly shaded; lots of trees, simply a beautiful experience!

Fulbright Spring Greenway

Disappointing

June, 2021 by n1203us

Cute little trail with a water hazard. We stayed at Cooks RV and rode the bikes to the trailhead at the school. We got about a mile into it and came across a creek crossing. There is no bridge, so you have to ride through the creek on a concrete pad. There is signage that says not to cross through the water, so I assume that this creek is normally dry. The blacktop needs to be upgraded in a few spots.
