Frisco Highline Trail

I love it

This ride never gets old

James River Greenway

A lesson in bike riding

September, 2020 by bdeegan_tl

Unfortunately you can’t reach the whole trail from the Springfield Lake parking lot. Only about 1 mile of it is accessible from this point. We made the best of it and rode all around the park and got our 5 miles. Just a heads up that this trail does not have a connection across the river

Beautiful day!

A very nice ride. This probably has already been said somewhere but the first 8 miles are pavement and very very comfortable. I did 12 miles today and turned around, but I’m setting a goal to do all 37 miles sometime.

good ride

July, 2020 by dan.allen.50552

I like urban trails that twist and turn. I prefer signage that are on post, ones painted are much easier to miss. All in all great ride, scenery. Look like a lot of locals use trail which is great ¿¿

Frisco Highline Trail

great ride

July, 2020 by dan.allen.50552

We rode the entire trail out and back. We live near the KATY trail and that is always our reference. Trail is not as well maintained as KATY. The southern end is much better maintained. We started north at bolivar. The first 4 miles are paved or good. The next several miles are bad for narrow tires, to the extent that I rode my Mountian bike day two. We quit at 215 highway for 12.5. Then return same poor trail. Day 2 on mountain bike of course the trail was much better. The closer to Springfield the bet it got. The last 8 miles blacktop. All in all great ride, the only exception was that rough ride on the northern end.

South Creek Greenway

5.7 miles not 8.0

July, 2020 by gaber.family

Nice ride starting on the backside of the trail. Was worth the ride through the Nathanael Green Park to see the Botanical Gardens and the Rosten Butterfly House. As titled, it is marked at 5.7 miles. If you want a longer ride follow the directions at the end of the description and go up switchback to get to the Wilson Creek Trail. It transitions on surface streets. I only did the bottom leg (go left) and it was short with some challenging hills. Go through the parking lot to get to the upper segment of the trail.

Frisco Highline Trail

From Springfield

July, 2020 by gaber.family

I rode to mile 20 and back. Paved until mile 8.2 then crushed gravel, which was still good riding. At mile 17 the conditions worsened. Tree canopy gives good shade 75% of the time, but also, as noted by others, has a maze of hanging spider webs if you go early (before other riders clear them out). Ride bikes would not fare well on the tougher gravel after mile 17.

Frisco Highline Trail

Surprised by the lack of maintenance

May, 2020 by arialupo

I rode Bolivar MP35 to MP21, I did not do due research and thought the trail would be comparable to The Katy Trail State Park, no comparison. The trail was not marked well especially around highway bypass leaving Bolivar, no signs. South of paved section MP35 to MP30 (approximate) the trail was more or less terrible, mud, soft sand, sink holes around bridges, big rock ballast, small washouts. etc. No place to get water. I asked several people about stores where I could get water same response, "They didn't know of any", so at MP 21 I turned around and returned to Bolivar, my water bottle empty. I will not be back.

Frisco Highline Trail

Trail in great shape at least for first 15 miles from Springfield - except for closure

October, 2019 by gwilliams2013

Trail is closed due to road construction 3 miles out from Springfield until late Nov 2019. Parked at Willard Trail Head, rode South to closure, then N to mile 15 and back. Trail is paved from Springfield to 2 miles N of Willard - total of 8 miles paved. Unpaved portion at least to mile 15 was in great shape - smooth, mostly shaded but some open sections. Rolling farmland - peaceful and scenic. Riding on Tuesday afternoon - gorgeous, sunny 72 degree day, only a few bikers/walkers on the paved section, did not see anyone else on the trail for the 14 miles of unpaved section I rode. Restrooms/food/secure parking at Willard. Nice rest area with swing at Conco Quarries and benches/tables at Frisco Trail Mini Storage. City park with large pool about 1 1/2 miles N of Willard Trail Head - pool closed for season but a nice cooling off place if riding the trail in the summer.

Such a pleasant trail for families to ride bikes and walk. Clean, and some fun exploring in the creek, neat bridges and rock steps.
