The James River Greenway offers a pleasant route along tree-lined Lake Springfield on the south end of Springfield. The paved pathway offers scenic views of the lake, bluffs, and prairies, as well as access to the river for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking.
In 2017, a new section of the pathway opened called the "Trail of Honor." It traces the edge of the Missouri Veterans Cemetery, providing a special place to honor veterans who have served in all branches of the country's military.
Just west of I-65, you can extend your trip on the Galloway Creek Greenway. Both trails are part of efforts by Ozark Greenways, a nonprofit group in Springfield working to expand the local trail network.
Parking is available within Lake Springfield Park (5324 S. Kissick Avenue).
TrailLink is a free service provided by Rails-to-Trails conservancy
(a non-profit) and we need your support!
