Frisco Greenway Trail


August, 2020 by desade500

The wife and I have just started walking, as a means of much needed exercise. I am a former powerlifter and she was once an athlete, in golden years past. We have been walking by Shoal Creek, a great walk, and it is nearer to our house, but once we walked this trail we both fell in love. Great walk. Even when it is busy, there are quiet moments to see nature and wildlife. Most people you pass say hello, nod, or let you pet their dog. That may just be the people of Joplin, but still it is an incredibly beautiful, friendly, and surprisingly strenuous walk. We are gonna do the whole thing soon, and once we do she says we are going to mountain bike the whole thing. What a great natural spot to escape to. Joplin is blessed with such beautiful natural settings.

Rock Creek Trail (MO)

Course gravel horrible for biking

August, 2020 by rdep39

I was so excited to see we had a bike trail so close to our house. Unfortunately, the gravel is so course that I almost wiped out several times while traveling on my cargo bike with two small children in tow. The trail would be much better with chat like the Little Blue Trail.

Old Chain of Rocks Bridge

Rode the Chain of Rocks Bridge ¿¿

July, 2020 by harrdarw

Parked on the Missouri side. Nothing “bad” happened, as is hinted by some comments and advisories. Nice bike ride, and I will be going back.


Rock Island Spur of Katy Trail State Park

great ride

July, 2020 by dan.allen.50552

We rode entire trail, trail info Windsor,Leeton has flush toilets. Medford has nice pit toilet. Chilhowee and pleasant hill has port a potty’s Windsor , Leeton and Medford has water at trailheads. Windsor lots of food choices. Leeton a cafe. Chilhowee was supposed to have a little store but we didn’t stop so can’t confirm Good level trail, except for some wash outs and some cracks trail was food. A little vegetation creeping up. Medford to pleasant hill there is no support or supplier so be prepared. On the up side you are out with no traffic Hope this helps you plan¿¿¿¿

Meramec Greenway Trail

This has got to be the most ridiculous trail around. It's broken up and spaced out so far you almost have to drive a vehicle to reach section. Not to mention hope short each section is. The 20+ mile trail distance is VERY misleading.

South Creek Greenway

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 ¿¿

Thom Station Trail

Short & Sweet!

July, 2020 by dianevasilis

This trail is great for a stroll or a quick bike ride. Beautiful scenery and you can start either off of Allan St or from Briarbrook.

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.

Columbia Bottom Trail - Missouri River Greenway

They definitely needs to be repaired. Its a great walking trail but if you don't have a mountain bike its gonna be a fun/ put you thru the test type trail.

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.

Roark Creek Trail

Not impressed

July, 2020 by gaber.family

Ride to the east ends up riding on the street and an unexpected 15 degree hill followed by steep uphill over a bridge in traffic. West ride ends up with half mile unpaved trail. Not well signed on transitions. Good thing I had map on the app.
